Readers, if you are planning a fall or contemplating a staged one for sympathy, do it in a desirable location. Maybe while visiting someone at the hospital and their room is near the E.R. with plenty of doctors present. Don't wait until you're across The Big Pond in Varna, Bulgaria.
I have asked the two major gubernatorial candidates to talk to Georgia public school teachers about their respective education platforms. This week the floor belongs to Jason Carter, the Democratic challenger. Next week, it will be Republican Gov. Nathan Deal’s turn.
The sale of Mountain Cove Farm Resort and the publicly-owned land surrounding it would be shortsighted, softheaded and irresponsible.

It is a bit after ten o’clock at night as I put pen to paper. My day of ministry started at 7 a.m. and is just now winding down. It actually would have ended a bit earlier, but I received a call that a child we pick up on our church bus had been hit by a vehicle and was in the hospital. That resulted in me leaving the house to go see him, thus extending my day significantly.
I was thinking of the Elliott boys, men actually, who co-lived in the old family home hard beside the railroad tracks in my hometown. One was a plumber, the other an electrician, but when I encountered them they were “retired,” or as one admitted just out of work.
Windows is set by default to install important updates automatically. These are usually issued once a week on Tuesday unless something critical occurs.
I suppose we have all had those moments when we saw something that just melted our hearts and made us smile... until we looked a little closer. I had one of those moments just this past week.

The years since I joined the Walker County Messenger in 2005 have provided opportunities and indelible memories that enriched my life far beyond the meager earnings of a journalist.
“To begin with, Honey, it really could have been worse...”
The ole saw goes that people talk about weather but do nothing about it. Well, yeah, there is no doing anything about the weather despite attempts to weaponize it.
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.
Cars, trucks and bikes being on the same roads at the same time during this weekend’s triathlon has caused concern among many in the communities — Chattanooga Valley, the Cove and Chickamauga — where the cycling leg of Ironman Chattanooga is being held.
I have looked in wonder and at length at the lovely inscription, Marie A. Baker, Christmas, 1924. It is written in a flowing script that seems to show no signs of hurry or worry. This inscription is in the front of a Bible that I just bought from an antique store in Berlin, Ohio, on our recent trip to visit Amish country.
No, this is a phishing email trying to use your machine to send messages at a high cost to you.

Well, we have a new fad now, going strong and showing no signs of slowing. I'm referring to leggings that are the rage. Some people like me call them tights.
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.”
When I scribed about things we don't use anymore responses flooded in.
