More Jim Hendricks
OPINION: A kid, a hotdog and a baseball game are about as good as it gets
Baseball’s the kind of special game that let’s you turn back the clock to some favorite memories while you’re making new ones.
OPINION: Tight shoes, starched shirts and squinty-eyed photos were worth it
Easter is a time of faith, celebration, family and hope. It’s also a time to remember.
OPINION: A colonoscopy is your best defense against developing colon cancer
Last year, I decided to finally get a colonoscopy, which I should’ve done when I hit 50. It wasn’t something I’d consciously put off, more like something I’d never gotten around to. Plus the idea of someone running a camera through my colon, on the whole, wasn’t something I was looking forward to getting behind me, so to speak.
OPINION: An the envelope please …
There’s nothing like a dreary day to bring to mind people and events that are disappointing.
OPINION: Advice to the lovelorn on the most romantic holiday of the year
Finding the perfect Valentine’s gift isn’t the hard part. Getting it to the right person, however, can be a challenge.

OPINION: A medical crisis strikes husband hundreds of miles away in Albany
Hundreds of miles from home, the aid from stangers in Albany give a North Carolina man facing a medical crisis and his wife a new reason to be thankful.
OPINION: For choice, how about None of These Candidates? | POLL
With all the mud that’s been slung — particularly in the U.S. Senate race for the seat being vacated by Saxby Chambliss — it’s a wonder bordering on a bona fide miracle that the state of Georgia, in its entirety, has not summarily slid into the Atlantic Ocean in a California-grade mudslide.
OPINION: There is little downside when it comes to nostalgia
Get-rich schemes require self control and avoiding thirsty weekends.
OPINION: Many struggle with the same internal demons that claimed Robin Williams
Every life has real value, if only we would take a objective look at ourselves.
OPINION: Kids don't require perfection, which is convenient for imperfect dads
What a dad finds out is, yeah, you’ll make some mistakes — plenty of them, in fact, many of which will be pointed out to you by your wife in no uncertain terms. And unlike video games there are no do-overs. You have to do the best you can to rectify them. But most important, you never let your kid wonder whether you love him or her. And you make sure they know you’ll always be there for them, no matter what.
OPINION: Old habits can be hard to break
After more than a quarter century of marriage, those who know me agree that there remains one great mystery to be solved.
OPINION: There is a piece of Christmas that, once received, you'll always want to keep
While a great many folks would like to forget about the holiday season, at least one part of it is worth holding onto the year around.
