The American Legion state adjutant has said that Post 77 in Conyers is the model for all American Legions in Georgia. One member has been instrumental in helping Post 77 earn that claim to fame.
It might be a gloomy Saturday morning riding across Atlanta, but for the nearly 50 fourth, fifth and sixth graders who arrived, loaded a bus before 7:30 a.m. in Covington, the excitement level is high.

Watch out Covington - there are some really talented watermelon seed spitters here. Granted, my favorite part was seeing the look on children's faces when they were handed a slice of watermelon and told it was OK to spit the seeds as far as possible. 4-H Health Rocks! Day Camp is always an adventure. It's planned by the youth and adult 4-H Health Rocks! ambassadors with the help of other 4-H teen leaders and volunteer ...
As we enter summer time, it's important to look back at 2011-12 with an eye towards celebrating the success of our students, teachers, principals and other staff. And, while I am the first to suggest areas wherein improvement is needed such as the four-year cohort graduation rate, we should make sure we take time out to celebrate as well.
Spring has sprung and summer is quick to come upon us. And no summer is complete without a few essential dishes: hamburgers and steaks. These are so essential that Gov. Nathan Deal has declared June is once again Georgia Beef Month. While most of us are celebrating by breaking out the charcoal, we reflect too on the industry that brings us these products to throw on the grill.
Join us for an afternoon of FREE good ol' fashioned fun on the Covington square this Friday from 1:30 to 3 p.m.
As you know, today is Father's Day - and my challenge of the day is to see if I can make it through 24 hours without once uttering some variation of the phrase, "Go ask your father."
This week we are exploring more resources. As you explore further and further into your genealogy, you will need more and more resources. There are hundreds of resources, finding them and utilizing them is challenging.
I love music. You love music. We all love music. Right? Well, if you listen to a lot of tunes and would like an affordable way to have an all-you-can-eat, so to speak, music buffet, look no further. In this week's Tech Trends, I will talk about a few of the most popular music streaming services.
Among this year's high school graduates are several 4-H'ers, including two who earned top 4-H honors: Ken Galloway and Morgan Worley.
Students have been out of school four days - are they bored yet? 4-H has activities for children age nine through high school.
I've mentioned in my earlier columns about cool apps and helpful tips for your smartphones, but that's all well and good so long as your phone powers on. With a dead battery, your iPhone just became a $200 paperweight.
A very long time ago, my older daughter called me in distress. She was just recently out of college and trying to expand her cooking skills. Today she is a wonderful cook if you want a pie or cake or cookies or something made in a slow cooker. My grandchildren always request her carrot cake for Christmas. However, her husband sometimes wonders why she spends her time making pastries and not meals. Anyway, she had ...
Skeeter Skates, owner of Skeeter's Tree Stump Removal and Plow Repair in Metropolitan Pooler, called me this week. That was a historic occasion. Maybe not man-landing on-the-moon historic, but pretty close to it. Skeeter rarely ever calls. I think it is because he thinks he knows everything. Being an industry leader in the tree stump removal and plow repair game can do that to a person.
Let's talk a little bit about each one of my top 13 free websites: 1) usgenweb.org Did you get a chance to explore this website this week? Maybe you have some questions? Email me and I will be happy to answer them right here in my column. 2) worldgenweb.org It is similar to usgenweb.org, however, it encompasses the world. Did you find out that one of your ancestors came from Germany? You will want to ...
Mother's Day always raises memories of so many special women, some still with me and others long gone. I'm a mother, but today isn't really about me. It's about all the beautiful mother figures who have invested into my life and taught me how to live. I honor these mentors who have made me into the woman I am now - nowhere near perfect, but nowhere near the mess I'd be without the gift of their influence.
For mothers with children at home and in school, May can bring madness. It's a month that tends to be filled with end-of-the-school-year projects, performances, concerts, dress rehearsals, parties and more.
