Whether we’re dispelling myths for our kids or warning them away from real, if highly unlikely, threats such as the widespread availability of powdered alcohol that could easily be slipped into drinks or onto food, we need to talk with them about alcohol and the dangers of drinking.
While the golfers are the focal point of the Greater Gwinnett Championship (hard to have a golf tournament without them), the event also raises money for charity while utilizing a dedicated and talented group of volunteers.

How ironic that Hillary Clinton is employing Richard Nixon’s “reinvention” tactic. Nixon got away with it for a while, but in the Internet age, a “new” Hillary will quickly be exposed as no different from the “old” Hillary.
