Do's and don'ts of a good marriage

Friday was my wife's birthday. Now, everyone knows that I write my articles ahead of time, so Jennifer's birthday has not occurred yet as I write this. But as you read it, she now officially is another year older. Hooray for Jennifer!

Handing kids easy lives is no favor

The way she was was a long way from what she became. I can't help thinking about how life veers so far away from the beginning of the journey and how the destination can vary drastically from where it all started.

Search for new doctor not easy

For months now, I've heard complaints about the current state of the U.S. health-care system, but until recently, I had no specific reason to be dissatisfied. Then, I started my search for a new pediatrician for my daughter and "got a taste of some bad medicine."

Fond memories of 2013, 2014 predictions

Grandson, give it your best shot

Dear Cameron: You have been in this world for a tad more than five years now. I think you would agree it has been a pretty good ride to this point. A lot of people love you and care deeply about you. When you are older, you will understand just how fortunate you are.

Ancestor witnessed history

It was the summer of 1865, which - according to Charlie Tinker's diaries - had been a summer of oppressive heat. Its airless steaminess was made more miserable by the heavy sorrow that Charlie and his colleagues shouldered following the death of their commander-in-chief, Abraham Lincoln.

Christmas trees are not just seasonal

There's one more thing that the DeLong household must take care of as we move from the old year to the new year. That's right - taking down the Christmas decorations, lights and of course the Christmas tree.

Leave 'Bottom Village' sign alone

Editor, As a resident of Richmond Hill who grew up in the Bottom, it saddens me that one woman (assisted by her sister in Tifton and a man from Cordele) should be so upset over a mere historical marker.

Big man in red lives: Hoe, hoe, hoe!

Recently I've read some commentaries where people told about the moment they first realized there was no Santa Claus. I got to thinking about that, and I couldn't recall a specific moment when such realization came to me. It's kind of like I absorbed that wisdom during a progression of maturity. No single event did it.

Reality programming keeps disappointing

When future social anthropologists examine the second decade of the 21st century, they probably are less likely to take note of Phil Robertson's critical remarks about gays than the fact so many paid attention to them.

Time to embrace our differences

While we get closer to the end of this year, it's time to look over what we did in 2013 that actually reached out to people within the community and helped break down any walls of sexism, racism, classism and religion.

Village resident is proud of it

Editor; It's about time Richmond Hill City Council is seeking ways to ease drainage problems in our neighborhoods with the purchase of 24.75 acres of swamp land from Mulberry Co., LLC. I believe the purchase of this land when developed for recreational use will definitely be an asset to the city.

Polls and pests all in same business

Thoughts inspired while working out

I made my first visit to the workout gym in over a year the other day. As most of my readers know I like to perform my fitness regimen in my garage where it is private, easily accessible…and most important - free! I happened to be out of town and could not fit my garage in my suitcase, so I decided to make a visit to the local gym for some climate-controlled exercise. Who knew exercising in an air-conditioned room could be so nice.
