State defense force volunteers for searches

A missing persons call on a police radio demands prompt action often involving dozens of volunteers combing dense and sometimes dangerous areas. The enormous time and stress accompanying the search is both emotionally and physically draining to the searcher and hugely manpower intensive, and many Georgia law enforcement agencies lack the time, personnel or resources to accomplish an intensive search.

Relationship help is on the way

When the words and phrases "delicate," "fragile," "cared for" and "precious" come up in conversation, many ladies think of their mothers' china and crystal, newborns and a grandmother's love and attention.

Birthday party deployed too

Monday is my husband's birthday. Now, I realize that in many families, birthdays diminish in significance the older you get. However, in my opinion, birthdays are the one day of the year where you have the excuse to be treated like royalty, despite the reality of your more peasant-like status.

Protect yourself from holiday crime

'Tis the holiday season, and Christmas is rushing across the calendar like a runaway freight train. It is a time when families and cherished friends gather around the hearth to drink in all the good cheer. It's a time of peace on Earth and goodwill toward men.
