I’m pretty certain that all the air did not actually suck out of the room.

I think it is probably correct to say that the room did not become dead silent.

I do hope that my last column spurred some of you to vote in yesterday’s primaries, but today is a new day.

A day that has two little known holidays and one that definitely bears celebrating.

Some days you are damned if you do and damned if you don’t.

Last week had one such day as what emergency management authorities called “a potent storm system” moved across the Wiregrass.

Let’s talk about the elephant in the industry and that’s fake news.

We recently had a stint with that in the community where a completely false article about the coronavirus started circulating. The post claimed to be from CNN, yet the link did not have CNN anywhere in its URL. That should have been a red flag.

With the March 3 primary elections zooming towards us and the municipal elections looming in August, there is a cartoon that I think should be required reading.

Overcoming adversity, perseverance, unity and strength.

These are words many use to describe the legacy of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

A new year brings new opportunities. A blank page, a clean slate. How ever you may look at it, it is a new beginning. It is up to you to make the most of it. Have you written any New Year’s resolutions? Have you told someone, “This year will be different?”

Here we are about two weeks in January, and I must ask, have you broken your resolution yet?

The start of the new year Tuesday at midnight marked not only a new calendar year but also the proverbial first blank page of a 365-page book.

The column before Christmas has fallen on me, which is something that I can say with glee.

Triumph over tragedy. Diversification and prosperity. Adapting to change and being better for it. These are all messages we have learned over the years from “The Lady in White” holding a boll weevil over her head to honor an insect, the only monument in the world dedicated to a pest.

I have noticed an increasing number of distracted, discourteous and what I call self-centered drivers on the roads lately. With the holidays quickly approaching I can’t help but think this will get worse.

It’s that time of year again, Thanksgiving.

Those who know me, or read the paper around this time last year, will know that one of my pet peeves is the when people skip over Thanksgiving and move straight onto Christmas.

“Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.”

That’s the first line of a poem—author unknown—familiar to most who have lost a four-legged family member.

Like Jonah, many of us struggle to embrace God’s will for our lives. Although I know that listening to God is always the best choice, I also know that it is rarely the easiest choice. Don’t let reluctance prevent you from fulfilling His purpose.

With the beginning of November comes two major holidays: Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving. So I’d like to combine the two in a column and say thank you to the veterans that have served this country.

I look at new school photos of my two Texas grandchildren and marvel.

Just a look at their beautiful dark eyes tells which is the eldest and which is the baby.

I have wonderful memories of my Granny. She was kindhearted, loved her family, always taking care of others and she believed in reading her Bible and talking with the Lord.

The way I figure it, my next column will come sometime in November so forgive the early Halloween column but it is a holiday I do so enjoy.

Pack snack, check your folder, socks, shoes

I loved your article! Well written and very true. God Bless!

Think “child kidnapping” and “getting ransom money from their wealthy parents” is the thought that comes first to my mind.

Pack your snack, check your folder, socks and shoes. That’s the checklist I give my kids every morning. What I hear is: “Where’s my hairbrush? Have you seen my shirt? What goes with these shorts? I need money. Can you sign this?” Typical morning in most households.

Vaping is really taking over the news cycle lately with all the mysterious vaping-related illnesses that are coming to light.

Sometimes there are no words.

That is exactly what I thought as I watched Fort Rucker firefighters in full “battle rattle” gather in the center of the post Soldier Support Center as they prepared to climb 110 flights of stairs in honor and memory of first responders who died in the terrorist attacks on the United States Sept. 11, 2001.

I am what a lot of people would refer to as a “youngun.’”

To put that into perspective, when the towers fell, I was six years old and in first grade, if I remember correctly.

That more than 700 people of all ages gathered at schools throughout Coffee County on a Sunday afternoon to pray is significant.

That it was on a stormy afternoon—and still more than 700 people gathered at the schools is significant.

Maybe it’s because my parents did a good job of raising me.

Maybe it’s because I was raised in the South.

Maybe it’s because I’m an old soul.

Enterprise City School System is still operating buses without air conditioning

It was a social media post that hurt my heart.

A woman asked — online — why a particular media source chose to essentially sensationalize a recent incident at a school in which all the adults involved clearly went “above and beyond” to protect the students involved.

It’s never too late to start new, healthy habits to make this school year a success. If you start now, you never know. It might make your life easier and slightly less stressful in the end.

Some stories are meant to be shared and I do believe this is one of them.

The June 3 headline announcing that Enterprise had been selected as a Main Street Designated City was followed by headlines announcing a citywide kickoff celebration at the Farmers Market June 24.

On Monday, I had a chance to learn a bit more about Fort Rucker and its history.

As I’ve said before, I come from an area and a background with little military influence. Living here in an area surrounded by the Army, I am always learning something I never knew before.

Think “human trafficking” and some sort of third world country comes to mind.

We tend to visualize creepy men with faces hidden grabbing victims and shoving them into the back of get-away cars.

Dream big. Work hard. Follow your dreams.

Those sometimes cliché words of wisdom are being imparted to thousands donning mortarboard caps and matching graduation gowns this month. It is very good advice.
