If you live in Colquitt County and like sports, you are probably a Packer football fan. So am I. I have had tickets for 40 years. However, during the past seven years I have also become a Packer soccer fan.
If you want to see some superbly conditioned athletes perform, you need to come to Packer Park.
These young women and men play on a field about the size of a football field, and they never stop running. The action is fast and furious and continuous.
They play two 40 minute halves ( high school) and stop only for injuries and substitutions. Middle school and junior varsity teams play slightly shorter time periods.
You will be amazed what these athletes can do with their feet. I believe they are the best coordinated athletes I have seen.
If you have not been to Packer Park, you are depriving yourself of some exciting, athletic action. Please do not take my word for it. Come see for yourself.
You will enjoy it and the players will appreciate your support.
Then you can do as we often do. When soccer is finished we walk across the parking lot and watch Packer Baseball. These guys are good. GO ALL Packers!
A tree house for the Smithsonian? Just a thought
There’s a danger as we get older to become “old fogeys.” I’m not sure what a “fogey” is but I think it’s a polite word for something else, relative to flatulence.

We’re inundated with self-help experts
Several years ago I wrote a column about self-help books. I had been in a large book store and there was a whole section devoted to books that are supposed to help one overcome a wide array of shortcomings. Well since then, it seems the self-help sections of book stores have grown immensely.
Their behavior seems somewhat hypocritical
Our state legislators are at it again.
Senate Bill 98 will prevent abortion coverage under any state or federal healthcare plan in Georgia except for a medical emergency. Apparently there is no exception even for rape or incest.

Where is accountability in regard to vet benefits?
Our legislators have no qualms sending our men and women in uniform into harms way. We who served and those who continue to serve do what is expected in service for our Country, even if it means the giving of our life. Eventually we become Veterans.

The art of orchestrating some conflict
I think I’m becoming too much of a television critic. But it’s fun.
It seems I can hardly watch television anymore without pointing out the flaws of the programming. And then I realize that without those flaws, the show would only last five minutes.
