Flying with Laughter

Arranging an interview quickly turns into something even more exciting when the veteran suggests, "Let's just fire up the old Stearman and fly down to Peach State Aerodrome for lunch at Barnstormer's Grill. Then we can fly back for an interview at my house." Needless to say, nobody had to twist my arm.

In softball and baseball in the box score 'K' stands for strikeout, in the Alcovy vs. Rockdale game it stood for Kalia Johnson.

Midway through the season, Eastside football sits at a comfortable 2-2. One fumble in overtime might have propelled them to 3-1, but that's something we'll never know. What we do know is, the Eagles have five games left, all against region opponents with a combined record of 12-7.

Thinning out the alternatives for Jekyll Islander

I have one of the most interesting jobs in the world. One day I am advising world leaders on the nuances of international monetary policy. The next day I am consoling a distraught reader who thinks I need to "look within myself spiritually." The last time I looked within myself, I saw my navel. It was full of lint. Never again.

A policy developed in spurts

Of all the experts I have read or consulted lately about the situation in the Middle East, the one who made the most sense was quoted recently in The New York Times. She's Jennifer Shelton-Armstrong, identified as a 45-year-old Democrat in Mission Viejo, California, who participated in a poll about President Obama's handling of foreign policy and terrorism. This is what she said: "He is ambivalent, and I think it shows. There is no clear plan."

All in a Rowe: Lessons from mothers and other mothers

I wouldn't be worth two cents if I didn't talk about my mom on Mother's Day - and there's a lot to tell! Of course I happen to have the greatest mom ever, but she's not just a mother to me - she is my very best friend. I told my mom she was going to be the topic of this column and she made me promise not to embarrass or exaggerate her with my story. I don't know what she thought I might say, but she needn't worry.

Around the well: Social Circle residents resemble daffodils in April

Despite T.S. Eliot's description of April as being the "cruelest month," in Social Circle April turned out to be our kindest month in terms of citizen involvement. Social Circlites were like little daffodils, with happy faces emerging from the wetness and doldrums of winter. Four city events produced record turnouts and more volunteerism than we have seen in a long time.

Our annual Easter Egg Hunt on April 4 attracted 167 "hunters" and more than 400 attendees, counting parents, grandparents and friends. Under the auspices of the Social Circle Better Hometown Program, the Easter Egg Hunt was superbly ...

Touching the Blarney Stone: Grandma taught me to walk

My Grandmother Cope would have been 112 this year. I miss her and everyday I thank her for the strength and character she gave me. To this day when I fall short, I feel I have disappointed her.

She was born in Charlottesville, Va., in 1898. Her father, my great-grandfather was a hauler. He was killed when she was very young when a wagon he was fixing rolled over him. My great-grandmother died soon after that.
