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.

Schnabel: We continue to be a terribly violent people
Posted: August 10, 2019 - 12:00 am

From the time Christopher Columbus “discovered” America in 1492 with the first known white men walking the land, we have been a violent nation.

Schnabel: After travel snafu, I have a new step in my packing routine
Posted: July 13, 2019 - 12:00 am

All of us have bumps on the roads of our lives. I have found that how I accept the jolt, weather the discomfort, minimize my suffering and learn from it can all be most instructive.

Schnabel: Learning how to ask for help is tough, especially after a lifetime of self-reliance
Posted: June 08, 2019 - 12:00 am

Asking for help has never been easy for Nancy and especially for myself. Each of us growing up in homes where parents were sometimes absent or unavailable even when present, set the stage for premature pseudo-independence. If a child in a home seldom, if ever, witnesses a parent asking for help, then there is little permission for him or her to do so. This gets further ingrained when the child asking for help is responded to with criticism or by being discounted.

Posted: May 18, 2019 - 12:00 am

I am struck by the intense themes of the Other Opinions page in the May 4-5 edition of The Walton Tribune.

Schnabel: My grandfather wouldn’t care much for today’s world
Posted: March 09, 2019 - 12:00 am

On April 6, 1917, Congress declared war on Germany. Four months later, on Aug. 6, my grandfather, James Delaney, chief gunner’s mate in the U.S. Navy, became the first American prisoner of World War I.

Recent events show our nation is run by the privileged
Posted: February 09, 2019 - 12:00 am

The recent 35-day government shutdown that we witnessed is a continuation of what began on Jan. 20, 2016, a government of the privileged, by the privileged and for the privileged.  The absence of awareness and compassion by President Trump of the hardship created for some 880,000 American workers is almost beyond belief.
