Charles O. Perkins and Mario Murray have at least one thing in common: They are both using Facebook to sell something.
We have farm-raised catfish. Why not farm-raised deer?

Roe v. Wade: Where's the celebration? As a father, I will never forget the feelings of joy and love I felt when I heard my son's heart beat for the first time. Thirty-eight years ago Saturday, the Supreme Court decided it was legal to stop the beating heart of an unborn child in its decision of Roe v. Wade.

I have been extremely concerned with the tone of things in this country, especially with the killings of innocent people, including a 9-year-old girl, in Tucson.
Is the way to the area's economic recovery through our stomachs? Maybe so. Several interesting new restaurants have opened across the Golden Triangle in recent weeks.
With its impressive architecture and attention to detail, the new Columbus Middle School has raised the bar on local public works projects.
On New Year's Eve in Alexandria, Egypt, a bomb went off at Coptic Christian church during a worship service, killing 21 people.
