King honored on Fort Stewart

Savannah Mayor Otis Johnson based his address during a Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. observance Wednesday at Fort Stewart not on King's legendary "I Have A Dream" speech, but on King's last book, prophetically titled "Where Do We Go From Here: Chaos or Community." The book was published in 1967, one year before King's assassination and decades before most of Johnson's audience was born.

Don’t toss that Christmas tree — recycle it

I would stretch out the Christmas season as long as possible if I could. Instead of the "Twelve Days of Christmas," I would opt for the "Twelve Months of Christmas!" I love the lights, the decorations, the music and the wonderful feelings of cheerfulness at Christmas. People are nicer and friendlier during the holidays. I do get a little sad when I have to take the decorations down. But when it is time to do so, it means that it is also time for Bring One for the Chipper!

It’s nice to savor the sights, smells and sounds of Christmas

The weeks leading up to Christmas seemed to be filled with news reports of toys being recalled because they contain parts coated with lead-based paint. I told someone the other day that we never had to worry about that when we were growing up because the pine cones we used for baseballs and the limbs we used for bats were not painted. We used daddy's good plow lines for jumping rope and they also were paint-free.

Retire 'Expendables' if recent episode is all they can do

"The Expendables 3," now in theaters, continues the franchise featuring well-known action-movie icons of the 1980s and 1990s in an attempt to recapture their glory days. I thought the first movie was average, the second movie was actually better-than-average, but the third movie falls by the wayside.
