Help a mother thank her son

Dear Santa, I know some people may think I'm crazy for writing this letter, but I believe God will find a way for Santa to hear my wish.

Keep an eye on your holiday 'wasteline'

People usually are nicer and friendlier during the holidays. It is a wonderful time of the year! The downside, though, is that it also is one of the trashiest times of the year.

Remember little things on holidays

A friend was talking about a hail and farewell she recently attended. She laughed about the farewell of a junior officer, about whom it was widely known (even to him) that he was somewhat worthless to his unit, never knew which way was up and always was two steps behind.

Please thank a farmer

There's nothing glamorous about being a farmer, nothing charming, little endearing and certainly few things easy about it. It is either a calling or a curse, depending on how one looks at it. Some are born into it and some just can't find a way to escape it, because it's all they've ever known.

Not quite ready for a night apart

I often think about how nice it would be to have a break from all my familial responsibilities for just one night. I dream of a quiet evening alone - no dinner to cook, no lunches to pack, no dishes to wash, no whiny pets to walk and feed, no toddler to bathe and put to bed, and no intermittent wakeups throughout the night to soothe said toddler, supply milk and coax her back to bed.

Mandela a leader who as a great man

The white South African system of apartheid was a brutal, cynical system of racial segregation that was becoming increasingly unsustainable and most observers believed it could end in only one way - massive bloodshed.

For many of us, it's that special time of the year - the time when you get notification for renewal from your health-care insurance provider.

Meeting leads to questionable lease

Since Midway's mayor and three city council members were re-elected, we can expect more of the incompetency that we have seen in the past four years. At last month's city-council meeting, the council voted to allow the mayor to sign a lease with the Liberty County Public Facilities Authority for a piece of what I consider to be worthless property. Councilman Terry Doyle, who opposed the lease, is leaving office at the end of the month.

Oh, the stories of woe

Oh, the stories people tell. Not always good ones, mind you, but the kind that will make you fall down on your knees and thank the good Lord up above that you don't have a story like that.

The art of packing healthy lunches

My daughter, Reese, started at a new day care two months ago. My husband and I had been pleased with her former day care until they went through several leadership changes, and the resulting policy alterations were disconcerting. The facility's lunch menu, which had been pretty healthy when we first enrolled Reese, took a turn for the worse - lots of processed, preservative-laden food; fruit drowning in sugary, heavy syrup; and snacks full of sodium and food dyes. No thanks!

As a general rule, I don't care much for TV commercials, except as an excuse to grab a snack or run to the bathroom.

Don't go along with government, be the solution

This is the end, my friends. After writing this column for more than three years, it is time for me to move on. I also write for three magazines and the commitment to the magazines is starting to demand a lot of my time. I have enjoyed bringing you the latest information on Midway and hope that you will attend the monthly meetings to keep the mayor and city-council members on their toes.

Hanging onto pride is not how to live

It has become somewhat of an art for me, that of studying Southern culture and deciphering what makes us different from others, as well as downright peculiar among ourselves.

Vacation takes toll on routines

I recently enjoyed a week in my hometown of St. Louis, Missouri, with my family. Usually, when I visit the best city in the country (my own personal opinion there), I only have a few days in which to squeeze in trips to my favorite restaurants, a little rest and relaxation, outings with relatives and an evening or two with old friends. So it was wonderful to have a little more time.
