Could there be a ghost in your house? - April Avison

I'm glad October has ended. Speaking from the perspective of someone who was raised in a household where "Halloween" was a bad word, I've never found myself too interested in the season in which children – and adults – dress themselves up as ghosts and goblins and witches.

DOT offers advice for falling objects - Tamara Boatwright

Last week I yammered on about a football size rock sailing off a dump truck and slamming into the left fender of my car. I took a light-hearted look at what could have been a serious situation.

Taupe, ecru, tawny? No, brown! - R.H. Joseph

Good woman, bad situation - Ed Brock

There's a popular carnival ride that I've heard about but never experienced.

The unofficial wedding photographer - By Zach Porter

Yesterday my little sister Katie got married. And let me just say congrats to her and her new husband Matt and to our families. It did not hit me this thing was going to actually go down until I was in Acworth for the rehearsal dinner this past Friday night. That's how it always is with me.

Knee-jerk reaction to bar problems - Greg Gelpi

Some people are horrible drivers, so let's ban driving. Let's rip their driver's licenses right out of their hands.

What is it? Entermation? Infotainment? - Rob Felt

Some people spend more time on their couch than the pillows do. Prime Time means resting their post-work laurels with a bowl of Sodium Crunchies in their lap and soaking up some quality alpha waves from the big blue eye. These faithful followers wield grease-stained remote ray guns and fire off attention-deficit blasts of infrared Nielsen radiation.

Louisianaizing a Louisiana boy - Bob Paslay

I loaned one of our newest reporters a copy of "Confederacy of Dunces" to read since he is from Louisiana. And as soon as he is through I plan to bring in one of my dog-eared copies of Robert Penn Warren's "All the King's Men."

Requiem for teacher who loved democracy - Diane Wagner

I'm tempted to use his name, but there's an off chance that he's still alive.
