  • Buy Local this Christmas

    By Lance Minnis

    This is not an article about the over commercialization of the holidays. For one, we all know it’s the case, yet few of us change our habits. No, I recognize that I and probably most of you are going to go nuts this Christmas. I love to give gifts to my family. I like to surprise them with things they wistfully mentioned six months ago, and see the looks on their faces when they open that exact thing they wanted. And for me, one of the most important and satisfying things I do is to buy as much as I can locally. Let me tell you why.  

  • Time certainly goes by quickly near our holidays

    Thanksgiving is almost here, and very shortly, Santa will be coming down the chimney. We hope your busy days will allow time to shop our local businesses and make their cash registers ring. Nov. 30 is called Small Saturday as opposed to Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

    Henry County is blessed with really interesting small businesses where you can find gifts of all types. Finders Keepers, Somewhere in Tyme and The Shop on Main in Eminence can be a great help if you are looking for a special gift.

  • The Meaning of Success

    By Lance Minnis

    The topic of success has been on my mind and in my conversation lately.

    A quick web dictionary search brings up several interesting definitions. My favorite, and the broadest, is simply “a result, or outcome.” Therefore, any result is a “success.” Probably the most commonly understood is ”the achievement of something desired, planned, or attempted” i.e. the completion of any task that has been planned and seen to its conclusion.
