There were smiles on everyone’s faces as they rounded the corner with laptops in hand at Southern Regional Technical College, excited for our first Facebook 101 workshop.
As Bob Montgomery stood in our office discussing questions he planned to ask local business owners at the upcoming SCORE workshop, you could feel the excitement in the air.
In snow shoe-mouth deep they came that 27th day of September 1780, a long column of mounted riflemen full of wrath and anger. The long slender rifles of the frontier (aka Flintlock American Long Rifle, Pennsylvania Rifle, Kentucky Rifle) were balanced across their saddles and knives strapped…
Dear Sgt. Hosbrook, though you are my ancestor, I thought it only fitting and proper to address you by your rank and title in that great war for independence that we are celebrating some 242 years later. As an officer in the First New Jersey Regiment of General Washington’s Continental Line, you were well aware of the blood and treasure being sacrificed to break free from a pompous and tyrannical British king.
Thirty-five years ago, as the editor of a suburban Boston newspaper, I faced a hostile crowd in a church meeting room over a story my newspaper had written about the public suicide of a young man. Efforts to persuade him to give up his gun blocked main street traffic for several hours and caused confusion across the city.
In Psalm 18:49, David says he wants to tell the world around him about God. There is a problem; the world around him is not Jewish and they have no experience with the Bible… so he begins in Psalm 19 using the “natural Bible.”
Job, in the Bible, is considered the oldest written document we now possess. It’s a debate over two questions, “Why do bad things happen to good people?” And “Where is God when bad things happen to good people?”
What salary level do you think puts you in the top 1% of American incomes? After guessing something in the range of a million dollars, I discovered it’s a modest $250,000!
It caught my attention while I was reading the book of Esther in the Bible; the story unfolds in the summer palace of King Xerxes at Susa. It’s one of the oldest cities in the world, going back as far as 4200 B.C. and sits in a fertile valley west of Mesopotamia.
As tears came to his eyes, there was no doubt that Bob Montgomery, our 2017 Man of the Year, was surprised by the honor and, even more so, by his family rounding the corner of the Mulkey-Ndawula Event Center doorway at our Chamber Annual Banquet in February. Just as shocked was our 2017 Woma…
One of my favorite poets is Robert Frost and two of my favorite poems are “Two Roads” and “Mending Wall.” Two lines in “Mending Wall” caught my attention. Two neighbors are repairing the stone wall that separates their properties and one says, in the first and thirty-fifth lines, “Something there is that doesn’t love a wall.” The neighbor replies in the twenty-seventh and forty-fifth lines, “Good fences make good neighbors.”
Years ago, I’d been invited to preach one of the Holy Week sermons in Brunswick, and after the message, a man walked up to me. He told me he’d been listening to sermons for over eighty years and mine was the best one he’d ever heard.
We’re, Mary Ella and I, reading through the Bible this year with our two churches using the Daily Walk Bible. Right now, we’re in Joshua and Judges and we’ll soon be in Ruth. The theme of Joshua is victory and the theme of Judges is failure; ESPN would call it “the thrill of victory and the agony of defeat.”
Three excited young women appear strategically for TV shots behind President Donald Trump at the podium as he addresses a fervid campaign rally in an airport hangar outside Pittsburgh Saturday.
I get some 300 to 350 emails each day. They come from all over the world and run the gamut of finding Bigfoot to cures for herpes. I get sermons, political advice, scandal defenses and occasionally something that pertains to my business.
MOULTRIE — Through my many years of writing news and observing the human species, I’ve been entertained, enlightened and even amazed at some of the comments and actions of my fellow earthlings. And a few times I was downright scared.
Recently I watched an old movie set around a Thanksgiving theme. The folks lived in the mountains of Appalachia, and it was their tradition to go out and kill a wild turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. Now if this was left up to me, we would be having ham or roast. The movie would have been real…
MOULTRIE — Several years ago I was seated on a bench in a mall watching a wide variety of humanity walk past — some of them very wide. My wife was shopping, and I was staying in touch via my cell phone .. what a concept! It’s right up there with remote controls and trolling motors.
As curator a lot of what I do here at the Arts Center involves transforming our gallery spaces, and giving you, the viewer, an entirely unique experience. “Wingspans,” an exhibit featuring a selection of works in cut paper, takes that transformation to an entirely new level with an installation involving over 220 pieces.
For those of you that don’t know me, my name is Lennie Flowers I’m currently 6 days shy of 23, and I am a Colquitt County girl at heart. I was born here in CC, and I’ve lived here most of my life. I spent the last 4 years in Charleston, South Carolina attending Charleston Southern University…
I used to be an avid gardener. It was a rite of spring. And my wife would often ask me why I planted a garden when I could buy the produce much cheaper? Well, then why play the guitar when I can just turn on the radio?
