High water, tender mercies

The rain lasted long enough to move the sky from dusk to hard dark, to leave the grass glistening, to flatten the ant hills out by the mailbox. Long enough for me to notice when the sound reduced itself to the monotonic drip, drip, drip from the eaves and the cones streaming from the floodlights on the corners of the house went from pale and thick to bright and golden. Just long enough to make the night an invitation.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Heading into an awesome autumn

Just a few days ago, Statesboro caught a glimpse of fall as the temperatures dropped and the breezes caused the trees to wave their limbs and leaves heavenward.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Spend more time talking with, listening to God

Sometime back, I read about a man and his young son who were driving to the McDonald's restaurant in their community. As they neared their destination, they noticed an accident up ahead, involving several vehicles. The police and ambulance attendants were busy trying to sort things out and help those who were hurt. Out of concern for the injured, the father suggested to his son that they pray for the people. Then he heard his son say, very quietly, "Please God, don't let all those cars keep us from getting into McDonald's!"

We're still fighting, more than 150 years after Appomattox

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - When the Civil War was over, when the dead were buried and the union was reunited, it came time to tell tales and write history. In reunion gatherings and living rooms alike, differing versions of the causes of the conflict became as hardened as sunbaked Georgia clay.

ECI pummels Portal

Though Emanuel County has owned the series with Portal the past 6 years, Panthers fans saw a glimmer of a chance in the pregame after ECI's second half meltdown last week at Swainsboro. That glimmer of hope was extinguished by four separate running backs for the Bulldogs who ran all over the Portal defense in Friday night's 54-6 beatdown.
