  • Taking stock

    “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul?”

    Jesus Christ

    Of all the Christian holidays, the greatest is Easter.  

    The rising of Jesus Christ from the dead is the bedrock of everything that we have faith in.

    It’s a good time to take stock of your life and think about the future.

    I’ve lived a lot more years than I have left to go and I find that my biggest weakness in life has been becoming wrapped up in the things of this world.

  • Commanderettes drop second straight at Hart County

    The Washington County Commanderettes softball team didn’t quite have the game it wanted against the Hart County Raiders Friday, losing 13-0 after five innings.

    Six runs by Hart County in the first inning very quickly put the Commanderettes in a big hole, and they were stifled on offense, unable to get runners into scoring position. Washington County didn’t get a runner to third base until the top of the fourth inning, and she was stranded there.

  • Democratic Women's Club meets

    The Democratic Woman’s Club of Washington County held its monthly meeting March 18, at Mordecai’s. The meeting was well attended, with several new members joining us.

  • Two bubbas and a leaf blower

    My friend Pogo retired from work a while back and became a stay-at-home domestic god for his sweet and kindly wife, Vickie.  

    I semi-retired from accounting work at the end of February. I say semi-retired because I’m still working two part-time jobs and just dropped my one full-time job.
