One unnoticed thing at a time

I see on the Web that some folks think that a reservoir is a dirty idea for Dawson County.

They oppose it saying that it will eliminate habitat for a protected species of fish and that it will harm downstream communities by using "their water."

Too good to be true

All of us have read the claims of amazing fruits and vegetables. Robert Westerfield, Georgia Extension Horticulturist, offers several rules to follow before purchasing unknown fruits to avoid disappointment and wasted money.

Shout-outs to Bryant, Charlie and Valerie .....

Oops! I left the "t" off the Rev. Bryant Wright's name in last week's column about the possibility of the Southern Baptist Convention dropping "Southern" from its name.

I was just so excited to learn that whatever the organization's future nomenclature, the Rev. Albert Mohler, president of the Southern (sic) Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky., will continue to favor us with his observations on such critical theological issues as yoga and women preachers. (Al doesn't approve of either and I don't approve of Al, but that's a topic for another day).
