Who doesn’t like gift cards?
Recently I stood in the empty, torn-apart-for-renovation, “ship” my family sailed for over twenty years. I felt both melancholy and pride as I walked among the torn up carpet, barren, patched walls, and scattered debris from an incomplete move. This old girl was up in dry dock for repairs before her next family crew would launch on their life mission aboard her. She will soon be back at sea, but we will no longer be with her.
In reading the story about Angela McGlowan (Republican analyst: GOP must ‘stand ground,’ Dec. 9), she mentions how Americans are being exploited by the lies of the liberal agenda. That could go both ways.

The evening may have been wet and the crowds sparse, but there was little evidence of dampened spirits at Monday night’s Christmas parade. Float riders (who may have outnumbered onlookers) waved and shouted, and the crowd waved back. Good cheer all around.
The Columbus City Council’s decision in a special meeting Monday, to terminate the employment of a city firefighter who the city says violated its substance abuse policy, has raised questions of fairness in how the council metes out punishment of city workers.
Most of us probably have a single Christmas that stands out.
One of the funniest guys you’re ever likely to meet is coming to Columbus Saturday.
I am writing this in regards to a football player (Dexter McCluster) from Ole Miss who deserves more credit for his performance on (and off) the field. This young man has performed outstandingly for his school and his team.
Things sure have changed since I was in the Famous Maroon Band. Back in 1986, I was a trombonist (one of among 30-plus trombones) in the band. Dr. Kent Sills (or, “Doc”) was director of bands; Mr. Bob Taylor (“Mr. T”) was assistant director. MSU football legend Rockey Felker was in his first season as the Bulldogs’ head coach.

The hoopla surrounding the MUW controversy and Burns Bottom has really gotten old. It's like going past a wreck on the highway. You're sorry it's happened/happening; you don't want to look, but you can't help yourself.
While visiting the Joe Thompsons in Columbus, I had a bad fall. We called 911. What a blessing!
Friday afternoon as I was making my way down Military Road, a white El Camino passed me headed toward town. In the truck bed was a large piece of exercise equipment, price tags flapping in the wind.
For many, this long weekend is about family and friends, turkey and football, and most of all, gathering around a table and giving thanks. It’s also about shopping.
While it was disappointing to see less than a dozen townspeople at a Sunday meeting of Friends of The W, it wasn’t altogether surprising. Most of the seats in the Nissan Auditorium were taken, but they were taken by the school’s students, faculty and alumni.
In 1889 the state of Georgia established in Milledgeville the Georgia Normal and Industrial College to prepare young women for secretarial and teaching jobs. (Five years earlier the Industrial Institute and College, the first state supported school for women in the country, was established in Columbus, Miss.)
Reading the newspaper lately, I’ve begun to feel like the man who survives a shipwreck and when he finally makes it home, learns his family has already buried him and is so thrilled about the insurance money, they won’t accept the fact that he’s still alive. Or perhaps I should say, I feel like the Grandma whose ungrateful family wishes she’d just keel over so they can get their inheritance sooner rather than later. Too bad for them, Grandma is a smart old bird and she ain’t dead yet.
