Thank you, Walton County
Posted: September 25, 2013 - 12:00 am

My mother bought me stationary with my initials on it when I was younger. She told me that thanking those around you was the appropriate thing to do. Whether it was for a gift or just simply to remind someone of his or her value in your life, saying thank you goes a long way.

National contest offers local appeal
Posted: August 21, 2013 - 12:00 am

Outside of my front window from my downtown loft apartment, I can hear the sounds of the market every Saturday morning. The hustle and bustle of children, music and community members looking for fresh produce is seen from 8 to 1 p.m. every Saturday morning at the Monroe Farmers Market.

Consider this $40 investment
Posted: August 14, 2013 - 12:00 am

There have been several occasions that I’ve had the opportunity to stop by the Walton County Boys & Girls Club. Each time I’m always greeted with the genuine smiles of the staff and youth who spend their time at the club.

Preparing early for life

Not all hope is lost in the younger generation. At least that is what Kelley Delchamp has instilled in me after our interview last week.

Black and white of hatred
Posted: July 31, 2013 - 12:00 am

Black and white to me is a metaphor for seeing things as they are in “black and white.” It has never meant to me the separation of human beings because of their skin tones or birthplace.

A little positivity in the limelight

There is something about us as humans that enjoys the stories of death, high speed car chases, murder trials and plane crashes.

Next week this time I’ll be finishing up the work day but not to go home. I’ll head out on my vacation, finally.
