  • Orange, tomato join flavors for a delicious dish

    The first time I ever tasted oranges and tomatoes together was in Atlanta, Ga. in 1990. It was totally by accident or fate, whichever you want to call it.  As the first vice-president of the League of Women Voters for Georgia, I was attending a pitch-in luncheon meeting. If my memory serves me right, it was basically a salad luncheon.  I don’t even recall what salad I took, actually, I probably took dessert.

  • In both sports and faith, learning the basics is key

    This past August, I “unretired” from coaching football and returned to the gridiron to lead the 6- to 8-year-old Pee Wee Yellow Jacket football team. 

    Most of you probably are reading this and laughing, because you understand that – at this level of football and within this age group – coaching is merely a title and not necessarily an action.

    Honestly, teaching football at the most basic level is the project at hand for myself and the three or four other coaching dads.
