I read a piece in the paper the other day that was trying to imagine the future of the area and what might happen that could improve the lives of its citizens.
About 30 years ago I moved up here to Pickens because I liked the place and the people and their ways. I still do and I can just about live anywhere in the country that I want to. It suits me just fine.
Now, my wife and I live right on the county line and our house is just inside Dawson County. I was privileged to serve eight years as a county commissioner in Dawson County and I think I did more good than harm, maybe.

Washington, D.C. – Rep. Tom Graves (R-GA-14) issued the following statement after President Trump signed an executive order advancing the Keystone XL Pipeline:
“I applaud President Trump for advancing the Keystone XL Pipeline, which Republicans in Congress pushed the Obama administration to approve for years. Construction of the pipeline will support more than 40,000 jobs and add billions of dollars to our economy. It was subject to five safety and environmental reviews by the State Department, and is even supported by labor unions. This action will make a real difference to all of the Americans who will have the opportunity to work and support their families as a result of this pipeline.”
According to the State Department, construction of the Keystone XL Pipeline will support approximately 42,100 jobs and roughly $2 billion in earnings throughout the country.
