  • At least it’s not snowing!

    By JAMES L. SNYDER

    If somebody gave out an award for grouchiness and downright cantankerousness, I am sure I would take top honors.
    Of course, according to the Gracious Mistress of the Parsonage, there is no honor in being grouchy or cantankerous nor is there room for it in our humble abode.
    For the past week I have been grouchy and cantankerous and any other adjective you might want to throw into that pot of naughtiness. By the time the week ended that pot was boiling hot and about to explode.

  • Pet therapy dog Ryley to the rescue

    From Covenant Hospice

    You may have seen Ryley, a rare seven year old flat coated retriever, riding in the Lion’s Club parade these past two years. But what you can’t tell by just looking at her in a parade is what her and her owner does for others.  
    Ryley was a rescue dog originally from Ohio where she and Michelle Weltman lived.
    They recently relocated to Wakulla after Michelle married her husband Michael following their high school reunion.

  • OUT TO PASTOR: I haven’t robbed a bank - yet

    By JAMES L. SNYDER

    Some people have what they call their “bucket list.” I am not too sure what this is all about but it seems to me it is a list of things people would like to do before they “kick the bucket.” Me, I do not plan to kick any bucket as long as I am alive. I have other targets for my kicking.

  • Big Bend Hospice supports Wakulla’s Meals on Wheels

    From Big Bend Hospice

    Hospice care is dedicated to a patient’s comfort and effective management of pain.
    But what if the patient suddenly needs a lift chair or their AC unit goes out? It can get really hot in Wakulla County especially in mid-August. There are times when hospice patients have a “special” need that is not readily covered by other assistance programs.

  • Strategies for marital bliss

    By TRACY RENEE LEE

    Prior to our marriage, my husband had been married once before. After his first marriage failed, he developed a strategy for marital bliss that he faithfully applies to our marriage.
    The first rule in his “Strategies for Marital Bliss” is, “Never go to bed angry, upset or annoyed at your spouse.”  
    Seems simple enough, unless, of course, one has ever been married.

  • OUT TO PASTOR: OK, now I remember

    By JAMES L. SNYDER

    Memory is a beautiful thing, that is, when it is working. I must confess there are many times in which my memory is on some kind of a vacation.
    What I want to know is simply this, how do you know you have forgotten something if you have forgotten it?
    I do many things I cannot remember exactly why I do them. Behind everything I do is a reason for why I do it or those things that I do not do. I must confess I am quite a reasonable person along this line.

  • We must choose how to use the tongue’s power

    By ETHEL SKIPPER

    There is power in the tongue.
    When I was a child, my mom would say, Child, keep your tongue from ringing.
    I didn’t understand what she meant because I did not hear the ringing sound.
    A wholesome tongue is a tree of life,  but perverseness therein is a breach in the spirit. (Proverbs 15:4)
    Our words are a powerful force for good or evil. Some people love to hear about drama. Still others love to perpetuate it.
