Joe Phillips: A project
Posted: April 20, 2014

History is full of stories in which stranded or doomed sailors wrote letters to loved ones, sealed them into bottles and dropped them into the oceans. Guinness World Records confirmed the oldest message in a bottle was 98 years old, dropped by a scientist off Scotland and found in 2012 by a fishing boat crew.

Bo Wagner: Don’t hesitate to not let us know
Posted: April 19, 2014

The Sunday morning service at my church this past week was a jewel. God really moved in and squeezed on hearts, and there were very few dry eyes or unencouraged hearts in the house by the time it was over. But before the service really got underway well, there was the “pastoral greeting.”

Sherry Dee Allen: The fellowship of suffering
Updated: April 18, 2014 - 9:06 am

I've been in the newsroom for a few years now, and while I've grown somewhat accustomed to the shock of “breaking news” that hits the scene, I wasn't prepared for the bus story. A precious 6-year-old little boy was hit by a bus and killed at a local elementary school. Just a freak turn of events. A nightmare for everyone involved. Broke my heart.

Kaye Ella Steadman: LOL, Mama
Posted: April 18, 2014

Now days I hear so many new and different expressions. They change about every ten years, and to be in the know one needs grandchildren or at least communicate with someone under the age of fifty.

For the last many months, folks all over the USA have been busy stocking up on guns and ammo. The majority of guns bought have been of the M4 design in 5.56 caliber. The next has been handguns consisting of 45, 40, 9mm, and 380 caliber.

Periodically I think of “Tina.” There was a picture of her around the house but I can't find it. I thought you might be interested.

In case you haven't noticed, the way health insurance is purchased has recently been overhauled. Whether you are a proponent of the affordable care act (Obamacare) or not, we can all agree that purchasing health insurance will be quite different from now on.

Kaye Ella Steadman: A tale of two closets
Updated: April 11, 2014 - 2:38 pm

I am almost sure at one time I had a walk–in closet. I remember it being very important at the time. Now all I can do is stand at the door and peer in. Thankfully, I have long arms and am able to retrieve a set of clothes. Venturing any further requires boots, hatchet and a hard hat.

Dick Yarbrough: Child abuse and neglect need to be Georgia’s priority
Posted: April 08, 2014

April is Child Abuse Prevention Month in Georgia, as proclaimed by Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal. Child abuse is a subject I don’t like to think about, let alone write about and you would probably just as soon not hear about. But it is there and we need to acknowledge it and demand some solutions.

His name is Matthew. He’s about 24, maybe 25 years old, and he has Down’s Syndrome. He also has a smile that lights up a room every time he walks in.

Dick Yarbrough: Irritating liberals and conservatives in same week not easy
Posted: April 01, 2014

Even by my impossibly high standards, this has been a good week. It began with a whack upside the head from a reader in South Georgia after I opined that those who want to change the way we teach our children in public schools ought to have their kids in public schools. I was referring to the efforts led by Sen. William Ligon (R-Brunswick) to overturn the Common Core curriculum in the recent legislative session.

Roger Sherrill: Gun store etiquette
Posted: March 31, 2014

When is the last time you visited a gun store? I hope you had a pleasant time shopping while you were there. In a previous column, I shared some thoughts on experiences I had with rude gun store employees. This column is devoted to rude customers.

Joe Phillips: Suppertime
Posted: March 29, 2014

In the kitchens of either grandparents there was a ordinary, rough table and mismatched chairs. Chairs were“bottomed” with white oak strips brown and slick with time and use. Oil cloths covered the tables.

Justin Glaze: Hepatitis A vaccine
Posted: March 28, 2014

The next vaccine on our ongoing list of childhood immunizations is the Hepatitis A vaccine. Hepatitis is a disease often associated with contaminated tattoo and IV drug needles, but some forms of hepatitis are much more easily contracted.

Dick Yarbrough: Columnist commandos get scoop on latest developments in Crimea
Posted: March 25, 2014

Since the policy of the federal government seems to be to snoop on the conversations of private citizens, I thought it would be appropriate if we turned the tables on them. So, I authorized my columnist commandos to infiltrate the White House disguised as Teleprompters and get the real scoop on the latest developments in Ukraine.

Posted: March 25, 2014
