Noted and passed

• We note with regret the recent death of torch singer Etta James, whose rendition of "At Last" has never been equaled. The versatile singer had a dreamy voice, and the song, first made famous during the Big Band era by Glenn Miller, was perfect for her. James carved out an enviable career and will be long remembered.

Silence in the garden

On Jan. 29, 2012, James R. Cothran, of Atlanta, died after a short illness. For many people, the garden is the perfection of man's beauty on earth. Nowhere is this more evident than in the South, where creating beautiful spaces is a time-honored tradition. James "Jim" Robert Cothran shared and exemplified this passion. This renowned landscape architect, horticulturalist, urban planner, garden historian, historic preservationist, author, educator, civic leader, businessman and mentor contributed significantly to preserving the beauty of the Southern landscape. A graduate of Clemson, with Master's degrees from the UGA and Georgia Tech, Jim served 42 years ...

In too many cases, schools over-offer grants-in-aid, which leaves them in the position of having to get rid of some players who have already been there for a year or two or three. Coaches are always able to rationalize this -- "bad attitude" is one reason they give -- but it's not an ...
