Best friends are hard to come by - Kathy Jefcoats

I don't have a lot of friends. I know a lot of people but it isn't the same thing. I would say my best friend is my husband but my best girlfriend is Claudia. She lives in Jones County, which is where we met working at the same newspaper about 10 years ago. She is just three years younger than my mom, who was 15 when she married in August 1959 and 16 when I was born in October 1960, but you wouldn't guess her age by her activity and interests.

Swerving to the right - Zach Porter

Much like presidential candidate John Kerry, I've flip-flopped my voting habits in the last two presidential elections. To paraphrase Mr. Kerry, "I actually voted for a Republican, before I voted against one." Bob Dole in 1996, Al Gore in 2000 (And by the way who has kidnapped the Gore I voted for and replaced him with the one ranting about the resignation of Don Rumsfeld, as if infected by a dose of Howard Dean venom). I joke, but what follows is a timeline of events in which I became increasingly disenchanted with liberals. And now after having all the liberalism flushed out of my system, I'm refreshed and ready to go to the polls to cast my vote for Bush.

Slow restaurants have driven me away - Bob Paslay
