Have You Ever Thought?... What Easter Is All About?

The month of April each year is made up of an interesting mix of days. The very first day of April starts with a joke as the tradition is to try to fool someone with what today some would call "fake news." We start the month with "April Fool's Day." From that start, the mix only gets more interesting.

Parson: Weather can determine when it’s time to plant veggies

You know people ask me about the weather: I'm a farmer. This "winter" has been an interesting time to talk about the weather. Consistent warm weather this past winter made last week's seasonable cold seem out of place in March. I remember an April Easter freeze in 2007 that was later and colder than the recent cold snap.

Gingrich Cushman: Where we belong

While we might have changed a lot since our high school days, according to Emily Esfahani Smith, author of "The Power of Meaning; Crafting a Life that Matters," (Crown, 2017, New York, New York), one attribute is still the same: we have a need to belong. In high school, this need to belong can influence and change attire, hairstyle and even actions. The same is true as adults; we, too, want to belong.

Like many of this year's "Faces of Newton County" honorees, newly elected Newton County Board of Commissioners (BOC) member Stan Edwards has a desire to serve the community. That desire led him first to serve on the county's board of education, and now in his current post. That sense of obligation to serve the community was passed down from his father.
