The wonderful world of weddings - Chris Zimmerman

Weddings are wonderful aren't they? I think that may depend on what role you have in a particular wedding. Attending the wedding and reception can be very much fun and relaxing, but being involved in the actual planning can be another story.

Love us or not, but keep on reading - Bob Paslay

There is a funny Doris Day movie in which she is pregnant and is being rushed to the hospital in a friend's car and they get stuck in traffic and eventually the frantic friends have to deliver the baby in the car. The main thing I remember about it is they are rushing around looking for the proper stuff to have and someone says to use a newspaper to wrap the baby in it. It has been a long time since I have been the movie, I can't even remember its name, and so my recollection may be a little flawed.

Best of cinematic persuasion - Justin Boron

Some of the greatest movies out there are the ones that have crisis management as the crux. I love watching some authority figure convincingly persuading a villain from blowing up the West Coast or assuaging bank robbers in a hostage situation.

Sub rescue exemplifies international cooperation - Ed Brock

This recent rescue of a Russian submarine and its crew of seven is a good example of the gradual melting of national boundaries.

A little street we call Sloan - Rob Felt

It makes a winding approach to the picturesque McDonough Square, just on the other side of nasty traffic snarls and horn-honking tractor-trailers. It veers along tree-shaded home lots and past the historic Hazelhurst House before it crosses a pair of one way streets that feed in and out of the downtown area.

I'm younger than that now - Michael Davis

They say it's your birthday. Well, it's my birthday too, yeah.

Pets of the Week

Pepper is a 5-year-old Shih Tzu. She has been spayed and all vaccinations are current. Pepper came to the Humane Society pregnant, malnourished, and covered in mange. In her former home, she was never treated as a pet. Instead, she was kept outside and used for breeding purposes. Despite her pitiful past, she is an affectionate, playful little girl who begs for attention. For more information, please call Clayton County Humane Society at (770) 471-9436. Visit to see other animals available for adoption.

Renewing your reasons for working - Aisha I. Jefferson

This weekend I was reminded of what a privilege (and a headache) it is to have to sit down in front of my computer once a week to write this column.

The pictures of our life - Zach Porter

Upon going anywhere for a trip, long or short; New York City or the Arizona desert, I think not so much about what I will see, but how I will capture and interpret what I see. Sure, I will enjoy my visit but capturing it with a picture will be the greater joy; without which the whole trip would seem to be for not.
