On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Kudos and quandaries

Kudos and "atta boys" to the YMCA for leasing the old Sallie Zetterower Elementary School to be used for many good programs, beginning with an exercise facility open to seniors and families. I suspect that there is plenty of good, unused exercise equipment that people would gladly donate if someone will come up with a plan to make it happen.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: 4 techniques for boosting flavor in stocks, sauces

When the air turns crisp and the evenings become dark earlier, a comforting and flavorful soup or slow-simmering stew on the stovetop is a welcome way to bring calm to a busy day's end. Served alongside a bright salad and a crusty loaf of Italian bread, the warmth and aromas of a good soup throughout the home can heal and soothe, like food for the soul.

Kathy Bradley: Of dogs and rosaries and fishing line

I have taken up the habit of walking a prescribed path along the edges of the yard. This walking is different from the other kinds of walking I do - the brisk striding to the highway and back that increases my heart rate and makes me feel I'm doing at least a little something toward maintaining my good health; the slow and purposeless ambling through the woods, looking for nothing in particular but hoping to stumble upon something astonishing.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: God loves children and so must we

In 1994, Susan Smith, a young mother in North Carolina, was indicted for deliberately pushing her car into a lake and watching her two small boys drown as they were strapped in their car seats. The nation watched in horror as this nightmare unfolded on television. Many of the citizens of North Carolina wanted this mother to receive swift justice. Some said they wanted to take vengeance into their own hands, which, of course, wasn't their right.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Wishing for autumn on a fallen leaf

I think if we all wish for cooler weather each time a leaf falls from a tree, then maybe, just maybe, autumn will peak her head into our part of the country. Until that actually happens, search for other signs of fall, like the orange pumpkin patches that are appearing outside local businesses, scarecrows and hay bales decorating front lawns, ripe persimmons and pears bending limbs with their weight, and acorns raining when the wind blows. You might even find one or two darkened muscadine grapes still clinging to the vine if the birds or squirrels missed them.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: New way of parenting hyperfocused on kids' feelings

In the late 1960s, America came to a fork in the parenting road and took the road never traveled. My generation did what no generation in any culture at any time in history had ever done: We broke with the parenting traditions of our foremothers and forefathers. When the time came, we refused to take the well-worn parenting baton and carry it forward. And as poet Robert Frost foresaw, albeit upside-down, it has made all of the difference.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Welcome fall with Zucchini Walnut Muffins

I've often thought farmers and gardeners must be the most creative chefs. They constantly face the challenge of coming up with new ways to eat copious amounts of the season's harvest. Take a walk at our local farmers' market or in any grocery store's produce department this time of year and you'll find zucchini in abundance. A green squash with mild flavor, in Georgia, zucchini is in season from May through October.

On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: Seniors and politics

In general, seniors do not fare well in the political arena. Well, old politicians do; they keep getting re-elected. Other seniors serve faithfully at polling places, and seniors are also faithful voters.

'All of it belongs to him'

Saint Mary's Missionary Baptist Church celebrated the dedication of their new building recently with a praise and worship service that filled almost all of the 300-plus chairs. Their previous home of worship, built in 1885 with a sanctuary that held 125 at best, stands close by as a constant reminder of the solid foundation on which the church was established.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Parent help with homework is generally a bad thing

Amanda Johnson, a second-grade teacher in Laramie, Wyoming, has caused quite a stir both among her colleagues and constituents and - because her educational incorrectness was covered by national media - across the United States. Her claim to 15 minutes of fame: Citing research purporting to show that homework does not improve overall achievement, Johnson has announced to the parents of her incoming students that she will not assign homework this year.
