Shannon Bardwell: Thorns, thistles and cormorants

Posted 4/19/2011 in Columns

My morning chores just increased by one. Cormorants have come to the lake, and I don't think fire ant bites could annoy Sam more. As he leaves in the morning I mount the Gator and head yonder.

 

 

Shannon Bardwell: One that got away

Posted 4/19/2011 in Columns

That morning while putting out cat food, I noticed a possum in the critter trap. We had extra family at the house and everyone was scurrying to get to church.

Shannon Bardwell: Friends and neighbors

Posted 4/18/2011 in Columns

Adele Elliott: Forever young

Posted 4/16/2011 in Columns

It is said that, when we die, our life flashes before our eyes. We experience a sort of review, revealing our good deeds and a few things that might evoke regret. That may be true. But, in some ways, my life is already a constant re-run of events.

Betty Stone: Before the war

Posted 4/16/2011 in Columns

There is a lot of hoopla going on right now about the 150th anniversary of the start of the War Between the States. I thought it might be a good time to write about a little book Elayne Goodman leant me.

 

 

David Creel: Are feathers just for the birds?

Posted 4/16/2011 in Columns

Feathers in the hair? I was born and raised alongside roosters and hens, chasing them across the barnyard on my daddy's farm in rural Mississippi, and to tell the truth, never once thought of chicken feathers as a hair accessory.

Rob Hardy: Ancient Graffiti

Posted 4/11/2011 in Columns

Go through any city and you will find graffiti written on any available surface. The stuff we see nowadays is usually spray-painted, and while some of it is just stupid and offensive, some has real artistry and style. Graffiti, of course, was not invented along with the spray can. It could famously be found on the walls of Pompeii, and also in Rome and in Egypt, and just about everywhere else in the ancient world.

The next time someone complains about the self-centered nature of today's youth, point them to Heritage Academy alumnus Drew Estes and the junior class at Immanuel Center for Christian Education.

 

Adele Elliott: Poetic license

Posted 4/11/2011 in Columns

T. S. Eliot must have been a bit dyslexic. He added an extra "L" in the word cruelest and omitted an "L" and a "T" in his last name. (My opinion, only). Still, he was an amazing poet.
