Adele Elliott: Storms

Posted 9/4/2010 in Columns

The Atlantic Ocean is bubbling and boiling with storms. The names Earl and Fiona hardly sound threatening. However, they are turning the ocean waters into a witches' cauldron, swirling and smoky. As I write this, there are none in the Gulf, but that may change soon.

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. The impetus for the trip was another of the Southern Foodways Alliance event, this time a Potlikker Film Festival held at Warehouse Row in Chattanooga. Two of my favorite people (who happen to be married) live on Lookout Mountain, so we needed little incentive to go.

Rob Hardy: "Digging up the Dead"

David Creel: Gifts with purchase and without

Posted 8/29/2010 in Columns

With one more push, you can finally be rid of these pesky weeds and get that front yard clean again, maybe.
