‘Arrival’ is intelligent sci-fi movie; doesn’t need effects

"Arrival" is a consistently well-acted, intelligently constructed sci-fi drama that cares much more about character and story instead of mindless special effects. This is one of the brainier, more introspective movies to come out this genre since the likes of "Signs" and "Contact."

Long County celebrates Christmas with parade, more

Spectators of all ages enjoyed Saturday's Long County Chamber of Commerce Christmas Parade. I know I did. From start to finish, it was a good day, a fun filled day, a day full of laughter, a day, when people, their animals, and their little children, gathered in the streets in unity to share a season of being joyful and very merry for Christmas, and to spread not just candy, but give what they had to give of themselves.

Liberty County in December, 1864

Looking back and reading old diaries that were written by people in Liberty County during the awful Civil War makes me thankful for the times we have now. The Charles C. Jones family wrote letters back and forth almost every day to family members and friends. These were kept and put in book form in "The Children of Pride" by Robert Manson Myers and published in 1972. I often refer to these letters to see what was happening in Liberty County during a specific month between 1860-1868.
