The sights and sounds of summer, the finale

I hope you are holding up in this scorching heat and enjoying the last few weeks of summer. Summer seems to last forever and I would be perfectly happy if it only lasted a month or two. I can already feel a bit of the summertime blues creeping in, and I'm counting the days until fall and cooler weather arrives.

Tell it like it is …

I hope you are holding up in this scorching summer heat. I can already feel a bit of the summertime blues creeping in, but when it's this humid and hot it doesn't take long.

Call of the wild

Sure, Covington sees a lot of movie stars coming through the "Hollywood of the South," but Newton County has its own residents who made a name for themselves.

Christmas symbols and their meanings

The Infant Christ is a living symbol of the humility of God who left the glory of heaven to come to earth in poverty and obscurity, showing us that we too are to be little and simple and to give our lives for others.

Thoughts about Christmas

As you gather around friends and loved ones this Christmas, here are a few thoughts to inspire and encourage you. All of them remind us of the true meaning of Christmas and we need to remember Jesus is the reason for the season and we should keep that Christmas spirit alive every day, not just at Christmas.

Beauty and the Beast

I've been told that I am persnickety and too set in my old school ways about some things and not an easy sell when it comes to change. I like things a certain way, and if it works I don't see any good reason to change anything. I'm quite content to sacrifice style for comfort even though it drives Sweet Pea and the kids crazy that I have a closet full of clothes I haven't worn in ages. Sooner or later they'll either come back into style, or I'll finally lose that weight and ...

Happy Thanksgiving, Southern style

It seems the Christmas holidays arrive a little earlier every year, thanks in part to retailers pushing to get every sale they can. This year we saw Christmas decorations out well before Halloween and a few communities have already put up Christmas decorations and turned on their Christmas lights.

Politicking and Protesting

I don't usually get into current events but you have to admit, the recent developments in the 'Occupy' movements and local political activity have been quite interesting, to say the least.

Trick or Treat!

Halloween has always been my favorite holiday since I was a little girl. There's just something special and magical about Halloween. When the leaves began turning and falling from the trees, the excitement began as we counted down the days to Halloween. In school, we would make stuffed pumpkins from grocery bags and paint them bright orange and draw on their faces. Daddy and I would pick the perfect pumpkin to transform into a magical jack-o'-lantern.

Rowe: College football in Georgia is the best

Don't you just love this time of year? What's to complain about? The weather is just perfect and with the cooler temperatures I enjoy spending more time outside, especially now that I don't have to worry about running across those dreaded snakes.

Rowe: Change that channel

It's a good thing I don't watch TV that much. Either I am very persnickety or there just isn't much on TV worth watching. There are very few prime time shows that don't contain violence, nudity or profanity. I'm not interested in "Bachelor" or "Bachelorette" shows about somebody trying to find Mr. or Miss Perfect out of 100 or so candidates. Makes you think something must be wrong somewhere if they are willing to take a chance on a total stranger and go on TV to expose their personal life. I'm not interested in ...

September 11 used to be just another date on the calendar, but two very different events soon changed that.

Rowe: Music and roadtrips

I finally get a chance to write about something I am very passionate about. Now don't let your mind start wondering, 'cause it ain't what you're thinking and besides, this is a family friendly paper, you know. There's lots of things I like to do when and if I have any extra time which rarely happens. One thing that doesn't require any effort is listening to music and music affects people in different ways.
