Our Public Works Department's street and electric crews have been diligently working to decorate the city for Christmas. Thanks to their efforts, you will see some new and different additions to downtown. Earlier in the year, an ad-hoc committee was formed to assist in enhancing the holiday décor along DeKalb and Broad streets. The committee consisted of several downtown merchants, two other business representatives with good design sense (in my opinion) and two city staff -- with yours truly as the ring leader. We presented our recommendations to city council this fall and they were approved after a few ...

Please permit me to share my thoughts with your readers about Johnny "Mr. Camden" Deal. He was a most deserving recipient of the Jake Watson Award. That award holds a special meaning to me.

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. He could watch it every minute it was on the air. Of course, he was watching and appreciating the game of golf. I, on the other hand, was gawking at the golf course at Augusta every ...
