Courage and change

"In whatever arena of life one may meet the challenge of courage, whatever may be the sacrifices he faces if he follows his conscience – the loss of his friends, his fortune, his contentment, even the esteem of his fellow men – each man must decide for himself the course he will follow."

A new Thanksgiving tradition

This is going to be a special Thanksgiving. My great-grandson Cameron Yarbrough and I are going to begin a new family tradition this week by sharing a birthday celebration. He will hit the ripe old age of 1 tomorrow and two days later I will become slightly older than Kennesaw Mountain.

Why dolphins are smarter than deer

I must warn you about the crazy animals living and dying around here. This fine Sunday morning, as I was driving to church, I hit a deer. Miraculously, there was no damage to life, limb, or car. The doe lived too, but she'll be nursing a sore rump for a few weeks. Now, when I get hit on the backside, I learn my lesson on the first whack, but the deer around here aren't that bright.

Our thoughts... Give a little bit

 Thanksgiving is almost upon us. Most of us spend the holiday gorging ourselves on turkey, dressing and pecan pie. After we eat, we can curl up by the fireplace and nap to the sweet sounds of football and family laughter.

Humility for the greater good

Leadership is easy when everyone agrees with you, when money is abundant, and when the decisions you face have simple answers. Real life, however, is seldom that easy.

My job is to follow that policy in the day-to-day administration.
