What would happen if you won an Oscar?

Many of us watched the annual Academy Awards last Sunday night. The telecast started an hour and half before the actual ceremonies, as the various celebrities walk the "Red Carpet" to enter the auditorium. And that was followed by over three hours of music, film clips, speeches, and awards. For those involved in the ceremony, the night was just starting as the telecast ended. There was the Governor's Ball followed by many parties. The major networks featured the awards in their Monday morning programs.

McCoy: Passion on display

A few years ago, I overheard someone stating his view on books. "Oh, we don't have books in our house. We don't read." I didn't faint, but my heart rate did drop to a dangerous level that would make a pricey surgeon call her local Mercedes dealership to check out the lease rates. "No books? None?" I couldn't imagine this kind of house. What would they put on their bookcases? Clown figurines? Pictures of cats? Maybe they don't even own bookcases! I really couldn't make sense of this statement. No books? Why would you ...

From the heart

Mix together a woman's desire to feed the hungry, kind hearts of Newton County residents, recipes handed down through generations, and a need for charitable contributions from the area's homeless shelter and that is a recipe for the "Feed the Hearts of the Hungry" cookbook.

You grow to what you are committed to

Our lives are molded by the long term commitments that we make. This is true with the commitments we make to one's family, to one's community and nation, to one's profession, to one's faith and to one's friends. These commitments become the standards by which we judge our decisions; they become the guide posts on our journey through life.

Before we learned to lie

It's Presidents Day as I write this column, and I've just returned from a cold, wet drive to Madison, Georgia where I dined at Cracker Barrel on a righteous plate of veggies, biscuits and blackberry jelly. That's a bit of a hike from Covington, but I wanted some good food, and I wanted to test out the new Pirelli P4 tires I had installed on Lazarus, my back-from-the-dead, ancient BMW. The ride was silky smooth and the folks at Cracker Barrel had a roaring fire going - one of the other reasons I was willing to trek to ...

How together we can do more than on our own

Today is the "birthday" of the oldest civic club in Covington, the Kiwanis Club. On February 15, 1927, at the Newton County Court House, the local club was organized. The leaders of this effort were P.W. Godfrey and S.H. Adams. There were fifty eight Charter Members. The first officers of the club were S. C. Chandler, president, S.H. Adams and T.G. Callaway, vice-presidents, and A.L. Loyd, the secretary –treasurer. Other directors were P.W. Godfrey (district trustee) R.E. Everett, J.G. Bolton, R.A. Norris, J.O. Porter, T.C Swann, and T.R ...

Warning: Valentine is right around the corner

How did we remember all these holidays before we had our "smart" phones to automatically list them for us? Of course we would remember Christmas and the Fourth of July, but there seems to be a special day almost every week. The other day my calendar showed it was Ground Hog Day. Now who made that a holiday? Or which Ground Hog is right?

Redbox movies you should be watching this week

It's been too cold to go outside and play lately, but it's the perfect weather to grab a blanket, some popcorn and watch a few movies from Redbox. Instead of holding up the line at your nearest Redbox station, this comprehensive list of five movies that you'd be mistaken not to pick up are here to get you in and out faster than Ben Affleck's crew robbing a bank in "The Town." Mild spoiler alerts follow.

The Power of a Christmas Wish

Have you ever thought about what you might remember years from now about the Christmas we have just celebrated? I hope it will be something that makes you feel good as you recall the Christmas of 2014. Every year we spend hours looking for the perfect gift for friends and family. But most of the time it is not the gift that really matters. It is the spirit it is given in.
