Spring is just around the corner. We likely believe that more in Atlanta, Ga. than you do in Highland County at the moment, but trust me, it is. With spring, comes graduations. Whether from high school or college, young graduates view this as a liberating time, a time to spend a little money.
  • So, you are graduating?

  • All cleaned up?
    Thursday, February 18, 2021 7:50 AM
    You have had a year. Have you cleaned up your home and grounds? Would a stranger walking by think, “Someone who lives there loves that place?” Notice, I didn’t talk about spending a dime on paint or anything other expense like that. Just your idle elbow grease. By now, we should have the whole world cleaned up – if we love this place.

  • The gentle people among us
    Friday, February 12, 2021 12:00 PM
    One seldom makes headlines unless they are doing something exceptional or extraordinary. Extraordinary seems to work very well if headlines are your goal. For everyone else, you will find they go to work (if allowed to do so these days), take care of their families and quietly go about their business. My estimate is that the extraordinary crowd in this country is fewer than 3 million people; these are the ones who steal the headlines in print and online. If there are 330 million people in the country, give or take a couple million, that means 3/330, or fewer than 1 percent are making the headlines affecting the rest of us.

  • Energy in the future
    Saturday, January 2, 2021 11:25 AM
    Natural Gas will continue to be the number-one source in 2050, according to this model. Jumping to number two will be utility scale photovoltaics (as are proposed for Highland County). Coal is still a significant factor. But it is declining significantly. There are two sets of assumptions driving this model: Energy policy and economics.

  • Being thankful for 2020
    Saturday, December 26, 2020 2:58 PM
    Let us start with the obvious. If you are reading this, you have made it through the year. It may have been with some (perhaps a lot) of stress, sorrow and an empty stomach at times. But you are here. You made it.

  • Oranges and bananas
    Tuesday, December 22, 2020 9:20 AM
    During cotton vacation, Priscilla had decided to make it a point to visit each child’s home. She would do this between Thanksgiving and Christmas. Money was scarce, but she would take each family a small bag of oranges and bananas.

  • We are entitled to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness – nothing more
    Saturday, November 28, 2020 9:12 AM
    I think the word “entitled” stirs up so much ill will and bad feelings among people, societies and nations that we should ban it and the concepts it stands for. It is a word that came into widespread use in the 20th century.

  • From GHW Bush, to praying for our next leader
    Friday, November 20, 2020 7:32 AM
    As a nation, we may be divorced from one another, but our Christian duty is to pray for one another. You might want to remember this column when I, your humble columnist, get excited about politics in our country. Despite my passion, I need to remember the words of Peter, and you may need to remind me of them.

  • The last presidential election
    Thursday, November 12, 2020 6:10 PM
    I will not be a sheep for the corrupt left-wing crowd that manipulated the “election” just past. If it looks like this will continue in the future, the best thing to do is not participate; for by participating, one adds an air of legitimacy to what is going on.
