MURPHY, N.C. —
"Yes, Virginia, there is a Santa Claus. He lives in the hearts of others." I may have misquoted that, but I wanted to share with you this act of caring and love. Our daughter, Carrie, and her husband , a Marine, stationed in North Carolina (Lewis) just did an amazing thing. One of their neighbors, also a Marine family, could not afford much of a Christmas due to unusual circumstances. Lewis and Carrie went to the other family's home while they were out and decorated their home. They also bought groceries for them.
I am full of pride right now because of this act of love and caring. The spirit of Christmas is alive and well in the hearts of others . Do something for others . In this time of horrific tragedies and greed,it is so beautiful when one hears or sees acts of kindness and love for others. May your heart be full of caring and support for others. May your greatest gift be a gift of time or charity.

In the past few days comments in the Rants and Raves column on this page have asked very pertinent questions relative to our involvement or lack thereof in the democratic-republic process.

'Hello, sweetie, how can I help you'all?'
I’ve often complained that instead of talking to a robot on the telephone, I would relish communication with a warm body. Once I even spoke to a janitor who just happened to be passing by the ringing phone. He couldn’t help me with my issue, but it was comforting to know that not everyone in the building had been called in for an IRS audit.
On Tuesday, May 14, many graduates were honored with awards and scholarships.
Former Colquitt County High School marketing instructor, Ron Lampman, was an additional honoree. An anonymous donor established a scholarship in Mr. Lampman’s memory.
Case for a flat tax
American pride and justice in our public revenue gathering service has been damaged beyond repair.

A miracle to behold
I would like to share a miracle God did in my life and in the life of my family via intercessory prayer.

Don’t forget about the camera crew
Sometimes I think I get way too critical of TV programming to actually enjoy a show. I know going in that even on reality shows, much of it has been staged. And on dramas, so much is predictable.
