Liberate Ga. taxpayers and rein in spending
By Andy Koenig
Tax day may have come and gone, but it isn’t too early for Georgians to start thinking about their 2016 tax burden. I suggest looking at in a different framework. Instead of simply looking at how much you owe, try calculating how long it will take you to earn enough to pay it off.

Timber tax hurt growth
By Steve McWilliams
It is easy to take forests in Georgia for granted. They are often viewed as natural gifts akin to the sun and the clouds- timeless and steadfast. But Georgia’s forests have not been here forever and they don’t take care of themselves. The state’s working forests, which provide so many benefits to Georgians, face a public policy threat.
