    Every time Reginald and Denise Cunningham went out for seafood, as much as three times per week, they had to leave town. The two said when they traveled throughout South Georgia and North Florida in search of good seafood, they invariably saw people in restaurants they knew from Gadsden County.

  • Saying goodbye to the man in the mirror

    Like a lot of people, I was shocked when I heard the news that Michael Jackson had died. To me, it was like losing a member of the family. It really didn't sink in right away either. Only after I got home and turned to CNN did I realize that Michael, as I call him, was gone forever.

    Everyone has a favorite Michael story. And no one ever forgets the first time they saw Michael on television and definitely no one forgets the first time they saw Michael in person.

    “Me, a nerd, a geek? No way, Jose!” What a rude awakening last Sunday morning turned out to be! 

    I was going through my usual, “What am I going to wear to church?” routine, as I have been ever since I can remember.  I know that I am not alone with this dilemma as I’m sure many gals go through it, as well as guys.
