Bush, Kerry: America's best? - Greg Gelpi

Amidst the murkiness of the mud raking and mud slinging of the political infighting, Americans of all political parties can agree on one thing.

Painful reverberations from adolescence - Justin Boron

Last Monday, I had my first day at the News-Daily. Strangely, it also was the first day of school for all of the kids in Clayton County.

The hopelessness of generic foods - Rob Felt

Walking down the long colorful isles of a grocery store, we consumers are faced with countless choices at every turn. Whether it's the 35 types of toothpaste, 18 different boxes of macaroni and cheese or the 20 feet of shelving for cooking oils, we are forced to make considerations before putting anything in our baskets.

Great expectations were fulfilled - April Avison

There are only a precious few moments in one's life in which one gets to do something that is on their unwritten life's to-do list. I got to do one of those things last week. I saw Willie Nelson and Bob Dylan in concert.

Chauffeuring a colony of ants - Zach Porter

When I went to pick up my car a few weeks ago from the shop I paid the good man, cranked the engine and floored it out of the lot and on down the highway, sun setting behind me and all that. My transmission was fixed and my car shifted down the road with the greatest of ease. I had my car back and I felt like a prisoner freed from his cell. But. And you know there had to be a "but," or a "when all of the sudden" to dampen the mood we had going here thus far. So like I said, I was driving along, (dramatic pause for three seconds here) when all of the sudden I saw the ants. They were all over the car, crawling, colonizing, marching in line, being ants.

Making Jonesboro look like a downtown - Bob Paslay

I was raised in a Southern town of about 45,000 people and our town square had a big statue of Revolutionary War hero Daniel Morgan, a string of restaurants, a bank, the newspaper building, department stores, a few junk shops and the big red brick county courthouse a few blocks off the square.
