• We note with regret the recent death of torch singer Etta James, whose rendition of "At Last" has never been equaled.

Never is he seen without that big, friendly grin. We need more people like him. Johnny is the "Real Deal."

Springtime in the South comes with a guarantee of two things: great clouds of pollen and azaleas in full bloom. Springtime in the golf world means it's finally time for the Masters. My husband, an avid, albeit average golfer, was glued to the television when the Masters was being played. It was nirvana for him when his spring break fell during Masters Week.
