Spiders, snakes are for the birds

Nature and I have not been getting along well lately. I love the outdoors and enjoy all that nature has to offer. But it seems as though we are experiencing an overabundance of nature's creepy-crawly pests.

Parents are made differently

Parents enter parenthood in countless ways. Sure, there's the traditional method - get married, have a baby and raise your family. And that's a wonderful way to go about it. But there are all kinds of families out there, and I know that I - for one - sometimes forget that moms and dads are made in more ways than one.

Sorely missed church trio found 'better day'

To be downright honest, I never expected to miss him this much. And if the deeper truth be told, perhaps what gets to me isn't just the loss of a singular man, though great and admirable he was.

What good would come of a strike?

There is a lot of debate in this state and across the rest of the nation over whether the U.S. should get involved in Syria's civil war.

Lawmaker with humor is a rare find

Rats! As if creating this profound and pithy prose each week wasn't hard enough, now I have discovered a legislator with a sense of humor. The apocalypse is upon us.

Mamas worry about what others think

A major New York publisher sent a review copy of a much-touted novel called "If Jack's In Love." Because I write about the South and because this book had won the Willie Morris Award for Southern fiction, the book's publicist followed up with an email.

Fighting child abuse, neglect should be priority

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

Beards are making a comeback

I have something I haven't had since I was in my early 20s. In fact, one of my favorite pictures taken in 1980 with my sister exposes it very well.

Don't be at kid's beck and call

Call me an old-timer, but moms and dads just did things differently when I was a child. The overall approach to parenting seems to have changed so much. My parents fostered independence in my siblings and me. They wanted us to learn early on that we needed to be able to speak and do things for ourselves, and the sooner we understood that, the better off we'd be.

Washington needs new blood

Editor, I cannot be the only one who is tired of the status quo in Washington, D.C. Primary election time is coming up and we have a tough decision to make. We can either elect somebody who is a career politician like Buddy Carter, or vote for Dr. Bob Johnson, an Army veteran who has never run for public office.

Irritating, you got to love it

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.
