Roger Truesdale: Another Delta star is born

Adele Elliott: Postcards and souvenirs

Posted 11/6/2010 in Columns

Columbus has been quite a popular destination recently. We enjoyed tours, lectures, concerts and countless choices of entertainment. Some weekends Chris and I had to select carefully because we just could not do it all. Truthfully, I would like a few days off just to recuperate.

David Creel: Remembering our 'treats' every day

Posted 10/30/2010 in Columns

A friend whose mother was dying shared with me perhaps the most poignant words I have ever heard. When asked if she would like fresh roses by the window of her hospital room, my friend's 90-year-old mother, animated from within as if someone had lit a candle in her heart, said, "No, dear, I have already been given enough roses."

 

 

Betty Stone: Hallowe'en hoopla

Posted 10/30/2010 in Columns

First off, let's get something straight: I celebrate Hallowe'en, but not because I am "in league with the devil." Actually, those of us who believe in Christ are in the unique position to laugh at death, not to fear its symbols. For us, it has already been defeated.

 

 

Adele Elliott: Dialogue

Posted 10/30/2010 in Columns

I have a job answering phones at The Columbus/ Lowndes County Convention and Visitors Bureau. It's actually rather fun work, sometimes hectic, and often challenging. I make copious notes on events in the area and try to keep the details orderly and organized.

Shannon Bardwell: A tasteful bumblebee

Posted 10/26/2010 in Columns

Sam and I were on our way to the costume party; I rode beside him dressed in my bumblebee outfit. While I fought with my antennae bumping the headliner, I described costumes from a Miss Hospitality Pageant.

 

 

Rob Hardy: 'Wicked River'

Posted 10/25/2010 in Columns

If you have read Mark Twain's wonderful "Life on the Mississippi," you have seen the classic portrait of steamboating on the great river, with its sense of privilege, adventure and (essential in Twain) comedy.

 

 

Rob Hardy: 'Charlie Chan'

Posted 10/25/2010 in Columns

Sherlock Holmes, Sam Spade, Lord Peter Wimsey and Hercule Poirot are among the most famous of literary characters. They may have had their eccentricities, but being of an exotic or foreign racial extraction was not among them.
