A typical home solar system now costs around $15,000, a pretty good deal for 25-plus years of free energy. The challenge with solar is now not a technology issue — it’s a financing issue.
On Saturday, you can keep up that hectic lifestyle and help a good cause as well as get your exercise in. The Gwinnett Chamber is hosting its annual Button Down Dash, a 5K and 10K run set up to promote wellness.

America has lost her way. So says my friend Kevin “Chappy” Hynes, and I agree with him wholeheartedly.
OPINION: The Jekyll Island Authority had talked about shooting the deer because of their booming population
In the midst of all the turmoil over recent Supreme Court decisions on Obamacare and gay marriage as well as the furor over the Confederate battle flag, you may have missed the big news. The white-tailed deer has been selected the official mammal of the state of Georgia.
