If you live in Colquitt County and like sports, you are probably a Packer football fan. So am I. I have had tickets for 40 years. However, during the past seven years I have also become a Packer soccer fan.
If you want to see some superbly conditioned athletes perform, you need to come to Packer Park.
These young women and men play on a field about the size of a football field, and they never stop running. The action is fast and furious and continuous.
They play two 40 minute halves ( high school) and stop only for injuries and substitutions. Middle school and junior varsity teams play slightly shorter time periods.
You will be amazed what these athletes can do with their feet. I believe they are the best coordinated athletes I have seen.
If you have not been to Packer Park, you are depriving yourself of some exciting, athletic action. Please do not take my word for it. Come see for yourself.
You will enjoy it and the players will appreciate your support.
Then you can do as we often do. When soccer is finished we walk across the parking lot and watch Packer Baseball. These guys are good. GO ALL Packers!
You don't have to live in New York, Paris or London to experience world-class cultural events. You can do that right here in Moultrie, Georgia.

Tribute to my dad
Growing up in South Georgia every little girl thinks of their daddy as their prince; I am no different. And I believe his years of sacrifice, dedication and unconditional love for me is a story worth telling.

Oh joy! The Turtle Man will return
Great news! The Turtle Man is coming back for another season on television!
And yes, I’m being a little facetious here. It’s a ridiculous show, but apparently it’s entertainment for some people.
The kind of stuff that happens in dictatorships
Distrust of government secrecy has been elevated to an exceptional level with the disclosure the Justice Department covertly examined two months of Associated Press phone records to determine who leaked details to the AP about a foiled terrorist plot.

And would you like fries with that?
Most of us have seen the Chick-fil-A signs that urge us to “eat more chicken.” So would you ever expect to see one that says, “eat more crickets?”

Something to enjoy
On Sunday I had the pleasure of witnessing an Atlanta Braves game up close and in person. I have been to a Braves game before but every time always feels like the first.
