  • Sports Brief
  • A need of reverence for education

    Last week I participated in Henry County High School’s Operation Preparation.

    Lawyers, detectives, farmers and other professionals sat down and discussed with high school and 8th grade students about their respective occupations. We gave out salary ranges, academic requirements, the skills needed for our job and answered student questions.

    I was asked what disciplines my occupation required such as oral or written skills, math or science.

  • Spring sessions can solve and involve resolution

    I received an interesting Facebook message from my niece; she said that she thought New Year’s resolutions were a very bad idea because January is such a rough time to commit to anything.
    It is the end of the holiday season and may be depressing for many and the weather is usually cold and grey. So she said why not make a Spring Equinox Resolution to go into effect on March 20! Spring seems like a better time to make some positive life changes. So why not plan to attend one of these interesting sessions and resolve to get involved.

  • Spring mowing: a must of all yearlong lawn duties

    As I write this column on Monday afternoon, I’m looking at a white landscape.  But the snow is rapidly disappearing, and it is likely that a rapid growth of lawn grass is not far behind.  That first spring mowing, usually in late March, begins your most important annual lawn duties.

    The first mowing makes the lawn look spring-like and very attractive.  So, when the first clumps of grass grow above the mowing height, mow, even if a lot of the yard doesn’t need to be mowed yet.
