Dick Yarbrough: Thinning out the alternatives for Jekyll Island deer

I have one of the most interesting jobs in the world. One day I am advising world leaders on the nuances of international monetary policy. The next day I am consoling a distraught reader who thinks I need to “look within myself spiritually.” The last time I looked within myself, I saw my navel. It was full of lint. Never again.

Dick Yarbrough: Trying to find the positives in this world can be a negative
Posted: September 18, 2014

The Woman Who Shares My Name instructed me that this week’s column was to be about positive things. She says she is tired of bad news and thought you felt the same way. “Surely, you can find some positive things to write about,” she said, “and temporarily take people’s minds off all the terrible things going on in the world. I think your readers would appreciate that.”

Bo Wagner: Why pastors need vacations and therapy...
Posted: September 14, 2014

I am a newspaper columnist, an author, an evangelist, but the main thing I am as far as ministry goes is a pastor. As such, I know what pastoring is like, and therefore I have a soft spot in my heart for other pastors.

Dear editor,

A thank you to first responders
Posted: September 08, 2014

Remember 11 September, 2001. Do you remember how it felt? Astonishment. Confusion. Fear. Anger. In spite of the feelings we all felt, some reacted. Some moved forward without a thought of retreat. All of us over a certain age remember it well. I remember reading about “towers” falling and not even being certain what that meant, but I remember the moment and exactly where I was.

Stopped me cold. At the after-church buffet I picked a booth away from vents that pour frigid air down shirt collars.

Bo Wagner: Faulty assumptions about power
Posted: September 05, 2014

Our family of five purchased a vehicle a couple of years ago that seats six, a Mazda Five. We took our own children along with another kid in church to school each morning, and the vehicle was perfect for that task and has the additional benefit of getting superb gas mileage.

Kaye Ella Steadman: What lies within
Posted: September 04, 2014

It all started with the gnats, or at least I think it did. Maybe there were fruit flies in the mix too, since I can hardly tell the difference, except their size. I really believe they are one and the same, both very annoying and aggressive.

Dick Yarbrough: September’s song has pumpkins growing weary
Posted: September 02, 2014

Can it be? Is it September already? One of my favorite tunes, “September Song,” was written by Kurt Weill and Maxwell Anderson for a Broadway musical in 1938 called “Knickerbocker Holiday. The lyrics could apply today to the current political season in Georgia — “For it’s a long, long time from May to December, but the days grow short when you reach September.”

I was thinking of things everybody owned but nobody has today. There are many. The first that came to mind was a “nest egg.”

Bo Wagner: Thanking God for paper and ink
Posted: August 28, 2014

I have a lot to be thankful for, and I have honestly made it my practice for many years to try and be a person who constantly says “thank you,” especially to God. I am still alive and healthy, as are my wife, children, mom and in-laws.

Joe Phillips: I shouldn't admit this
Posted: August 28, 2014

There has been an unignorable seepage in the front yard of the mountain cabin, “Respite,” evidence of what it was – a leak in the water line. The line passes under a long lane and could pass through the yard anywhere. I dreaded digging the place up looking for it.

Kaye Steadman: Espresso made me mean
Posted: August 27, 2014

To any readers remotely considering an Espresso machine, beware and reconsider. For years I had been wanting one after traveling to Europe and tasting the rich, frothy, black liquid.

Dwight Watt: How do I change my home page?
Posted: August 26, 2014

The home page on your browser is the page that displays when you first start the browser. Quite often this is set for Google or Bing or your ISP’s web page to display. Other people have set it to a page they quite often want to go to. On my browsers I have my home page set to www.dwightwatt.com.
