Legislators don't always do what they say they'll do

Do you really think if the state takes control away from local school boards to establish charter schools as the upcoming constitutional amendment proposes, they will do it better? If so, you are smoking rope. Once our legislators get control of the process, there is no guarantee that they will do what they say.

Share your sole in upcoming shoe drive

More than 300 million children worldwide are without shoes. I don't mean they have no Sunday shoes or no good school shoes - I mean they absolutely have no shoes.

Be sure to jot this down

I've been writing this column for six years now, and it still mystifies me that someone actually would read it. Before this, the only thing I had ever written was "home for money."

I'm one of 'those' moms, pretty proud of it

This week, I reluctantly attended my very first MOPS meeting. Most know that MOPS stands for mothers of preschoolers, and since my daughter won't be a preschooler for another few years, I was a little confused about why I was invited in the first place. It turns out that MOPS, or at least the MOPS group that meets at Gum Branch Baptist Church, has branched out and now offers support and fellowship to moms of children who haven't yet started elementary school.

Don't forget to turn out lights when you leave

I have never seen a president lie as much as President Barack Obama, except for maybe President Lyndon B. Johnson, who said that he wouldn't bomb North Vietnam in order to win the election over Sen. Barry Goldwater. After being elected, he then turned around and bombed North Vietnam.

He isn't scheduled to de-flea Arven's place for another two months.
