A father’s loss

"For everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." In our lives, there will be circumstances that play out like a well-orchestrated melody, executed in exactly the way we had envisioned; others will leave us in wonderment of their clear purpose.

Standing at the sorority house door

Students at the University of Alabama (UA) demonstrated recently for the end of segregated sororities at the school. Several hundred students rallying to integrate the Pan-Hellenic Council (PHC) at the school held a sign alluding to Gov. George Wallace's "Stand at the Schoolhouse Door." Fifty years ago, in 1963, Wallace led a protest for continued segregation, as UA had just let its first two black students enroll and attend classes.

Plain water for me

I have never been a fan of Kool-Aid. I just don't think it tastes very good. I also have never been able to get into the trend of adding sugar-free flavor enhancer packets to my bottled water. I honestly don't see how that fake sweet taste could ever be preferable to the taste of pure water.

Can these trees be saved?

Through research, site evaluations and help from structural engineers, arborists are learning more and more about the how's and why's of a tree's ability to stand and fall. Many different factors are at work affecting the strength and structure of trees.

For example, when the force of the wind is stronger than the strength of the root system which holds the tree in place, it will fall.

Stay focused on fire safety, prevention

In 1923, at a small school house near Camden known as the Cleveland School, more than 300 people gathered for a graduation night celebration and play. At 9 p.m., one of the oil lanterns fell onto the stage and within minutes the school was engulfed in flames. Seventy-seven people lost their lives that night. During the past 100 years, we have made great strides in implementing fire codes and regulations to protect our citizens; but we must remain diligent.
