Anne Freeze: Goodies out there, to share

Posted 9/1/2010 in Columns

A week ago Terry and I drove to Chattanooga, Tenn., for a wonderful weekend.

Rob Hardy: "Digging up the Dead"

David Creel: Gifts with purchase and without

Posted 8/29/2010 in Columns

I grew up the youngest of four boys in a small country town just east of Hattiesburg, with dirt roads beneath my bare feet and where cutoffs were a positive fashion statement. My older brothers are Richard, John and Tony -- good old American names, I have always thought.

 

 

Jeff Wilson: Armyworms and weeds: Turf nemesis

Posted 8/29/2010 in Columns

It's been a long, hot summer here in north Mississippi, and your turf is probably showing the wear of the season. You've watered on a regular basis and kept the grass alive, but you still have a few weeds that refuse to leave. With one more push, you can finally be rid of these pesky weeds and get that front yard clean again, maybe.

Adele Elliott: Courtesy

Posted 8/29/2010 in Columns

I've been thinking about courtesy lately. It started with a conversation with my friend, Marleen Hansen. She lamented the decline in table manners. "People don't know basic etiquette, like using the silverware and napkins that are provided," she said. "Everyone eats with their hands!"
