Vote- and Take At Least One Woman With You

Each time an election rolls around, I find myself wondering how to best perform my civic duty to vote.

Christmas 2017, May it be Your Best Christmas Ever!

When Christmas Season comes around we should be reminded of the glorious scene in the dead of night before a group of shepherds watching their flock. Wonder if we knew this time was our last Christmas as we know it. Would we treat it any differently? Would it mean any more to us this time?

The Alexander Oak

The giant oak that looked out on Scenic Highway from its place in the 91 acres Alexander Park is gone now, and that big oak tree was probably just an acorn when Gwinnett became a Georgia county in 1818. Through the years after the oak became a big tree and a landmark on the Alexander property it has seen all kinds of weather and over a century of changes in the Alexander family and Gwinnett County.
