Limited visibility

It has been a week of fog. The first morning it made me think of the tendrils of smoke wafting from a cartoon Santa's pipe, pushed slowly over the fields by a gentle breath. The second it was flat, and had the dull finish of an old car and stretched from earth to sky in a single swath of mourning dove gray.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Lend a hand to help seniors learn

Retail commerce in this country is in the midst of radical, perhaps revolutionary, change. A rapidly growing proportion of retail sales are being done "online" through internet sites rather than on-site local stores. Amazon.com comes to mind immediately, but many other businesses sell things wholly or partly via the internet.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Deer turned dinner -- Vegetable Venison Lasagna

Deer hunting season in Georgia has just come to a close, and the way I figure it, many of you Southeast Georgians who read my column probably love to hunt or at least have some men in your life who pride themselves on bringing home the meat. If at this time of year, you find yourself with a freezer full of venison and you're unsure of how to prepare it, I may be able to provide some inspiration.

This year's Frills Prom Preview Fashion Show was the largest ever, according to Scott Marchbanks, owner of Frills by Scott.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Use of e-cigs could mean bigger issues

Q: I found a vaping pen hidden in my 13-year-old son's room and am at a loss as to how to deal with it. He is very susceptible to peer pressure and wants very badly to fit in with the "cool" kids. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Parents must step up to control 'brat'

One of the biggest problems among today's parents - especially mothers - concerns their tendency to think in psychological terms about their children's behavior problems. Mothers are more prone to this intellectual wandering than fathers not because of some gender-related characteristic but simply because mothers are the primary consumers of parenting material.

What's left after Christmas

After the last decoration has been taken down, after the Fitz & Floyd platters have been carefully shoved into the way-back of the china cabinet, after the programs and pageants and parties have been reduced to cleverly captioned images on Instagram, what is left are the sounds. The real sounds.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Patience is essential to please God, help others

Patience is one of those godly virtues to which the adage, "Easier said than done," can be applied. I guess that's true of all of them. But patience seems to be right up there with the most difficult. Yet, if we're to follow in Jesus' footsteps, we must be continually working to increase it in ourselves.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Luck, prosperity and a little Hoppin' John

New Year's Day is here, and every good Southerner knows what that means: It's time to cook up a hearty meal that echoes the good vibes a brand-new year can bring: luck, prosperity and cash flow. Whether you're on board with the belief that eating pork, collard greens, black-eyed peas and corn bread can increase your wealth in the New Year, the way I figure it, eating good never hurt a soul. And why leave fortune to chance? Luck be a black-eyed pea, tonight.
