‘Breaking Dawn’ is worth the hype

There's no hiding it, I'm a "Twilight" fan. Hey, I don't approve of all the hype. All I know is that while reading Stephenie Meyer's best-selling novels, there were moments where I genuinely felt as if I had been magically transported into Bella Swan's shoes.

Old kitchens hold memories, memorials

The kitchen is the heart of the home. This is as true today as it was 100 years ago. Back then, the kitchen was a separate little building that usually was built before the main house. It was connected by a small porch or walkway that we called the dogtrot. I guess we called it that because that is where the old hound dog trotted between the house and the kitchen, waiting for us to throw him a cold biscuit.

Travels with the Courier

Ann Parker and James Blank pose with a copy of the Coastal Courier on May 17 outside the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. One week earlier, Parker had donated a kidney to Blank. They are good friends, and both attend Bethesda Church in Hinesville. Parker's donation marked the 1,000th kidney donation at the Jacksonville Mayo Clinic. She celebrated and enjoyed cake with the clinic staff. After some ups and downs with post-transplant procedures, Blank now is doing well. Parker said the transplant also marked the third time someone from Bethesda Church has donated a kidney to another.

Simple math predicts how much turkey to buy

Thanksgiving holds different meanings to different people. Some feel it is a day for being generous or giving thanks through unselfish deeds. Others feel it is a time to sit around with family sharing stories of the year. Still many others simply look forward to the day for football. No matter how you view Thanksgiving, one thing is sure: Filling up on turkey is an integral part of the holiday.

Step back in time to Fort King George

Georgia is a beautiful state with lots of history, much of which was preserved for us by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources through its 60-plus state parks and historic sites. Fort King George Historic Site in Darien was established by the British in 1621, a dozen years before Gen. James Oglethorpe founded Great Britain's 13th colony in the New World.
