Posted: November 27, 2019 - 12:00 am

Lest anyone think I’m pointing fingers, I’ll disabuse you of that notion right now.

Posted: November 27, 2019 - 12:00 am

This Thanksgiving holiday finds me, in my 70s, a bit more mellow and reflective than in past years.

Kenneson: Big grocery store win still comes with risks
Posted: November 20, 2019 - 11:51 am

Until just a few days ago, if I’d asked anyone, literally anyone, about what Monroe could use in the future, they’d all have told me that Monroe needs a chain grocery store.

Schnabel: Unconventional? Nothing wrong with that
Posted: November 09, 2019 - 12:00 am

Sandi and Mike have never been a conventional couple. Nevertheless, Nancy and I have admired and cared for them as they have been following their dreams and honoring their commitments for the past 30-years. They met as servers at the long defunct restaurant chain Steak and Ale in Stone Mountain. Sandi was single, supporting the first of many horses she would own until this year. She was also a full-time college student completing her degree in business. Mike was divorced with three sons, working a poorly compensated full-time job he abhorred as a supervisor over many women. But he thoroughly enjoyed waiting tables in the evenings. They married in February of 1990, while Nancy and I exchanged vows that May. They are a dozen years younger than us. We saw them from time to time and enjoyed their company.

Kenneson: What are elections for anyway?
Posted: November 06, 2019 - 10:32 am

A year ago today, Election Day had come and gone, and 4 million Georgians had cast a vote in the governor’s race. But we still didn’t know who our next governor would be. Hang-ups in the voting system meant Brian Kemp didn’t declare victory until Nov. 7.

Recently I mentioned how each life has a story and often times these stories are used when writing an obituary for the individual.

I'm starting a Youth movement out here
Posted: October 18, 2019 - 3:09 pm

Alas, I live in Youth. I just love saying that. When we moved to Walton County several years ago, I would have told you I lived in Loganville; after all, I had a Loganville address.

Clemons: Mobile home park empties. Now what?
Updated: October 15, 2019 - 6:06 pm

The “warning” came from someone close to City Hall, not to let FISH Executive Director Cindy Little control the narrative about Monroe cutting off utilities to Conestoga Mobile Home Park, essentially evicting the residents of a neighborhood that has fallen into disrepair.
