Bulloch History by Roger Allen

In 1865, King Louis the 14th was very busy persecuting the group of French Protestants known as the Huguenots. On August 8th of that year, he revoked the "Edict of Nantes", in which the religious freedoms of non-Catholic Frenchmen had been guaranteed. Along the Moselle River, in the Alsace-Lorraine region, the Mazels were suspected by authorities to be some of the most militant Huguenots.

Many of us are resolving to make a lifestyle change to improve our health, such as exercise regularly, lose some weight, quit smoking, or get a health screening. Remember, change is a process, not an event, and it takes a long-term commitment and requires a supportive environment.

Fun with the family by Julie Lavender

Decorations and lights are put away for another year, heralding in the dawn of a new year and new beginnings. What was on your list of resolutions and changes for 2008? Have you tossed the diet aside already? Forget the pounds and the promises this year and make one simple goal - put family first.

Make an effort to make memorable times with special people, memories that will last throughout the year.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy

If we had our way about it, likely none of us would choose the unpleasant paths of life; rather we would choose the easy road, where the ground is smooth and straight, and the paths clearly marked. Consider that the first inclination of parents, when given the choice, is usually...and understandably...to help their children avoid hardship whenever possible.

Outdoor Life: Make memories with an outdoor journal

Fifteen years ago I decided to start keeping a fishing logbook. As I look back on it today I'm amazed at the number of times I've been and the number and variety of fish that have been caught over that time. It is something that I often refer to because I'm always looking for an edge on the fish, but more importantly for me it has become a way to remember people, events and treasured moments. In essence, each entry is a snapshot of a day spent on the water.
