More Jim Hendricks
OPINION: Dusty Rhodes celebrated his redneckedness
Dusty Rhodes was an entertainer in a business where entertaining routinely requires the spilling of blood, bruising of flesh, straining of muscles and breaking of bones. We called it rasslin, not wrestling. And there was a time in my youth when I thought it was real.
OPINION: Climbing rock trees just wasnt to be
There’s a lot to see when traveling four days over more than 2,000 miles of America, about half of it Texas. And a lot of it’s desert.
OPINION: Nothing is quite as relaxing as the sound of the ocean
Sometimes you just have to get away from the always-connected, electronic-driven lifestyle to connect with what’s really important in life.
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: Joe Farris is again preparing to cheer up young patients at St. Jude
Joe Farris, “the real Santa Claus,” will be making his final pickup Friday in Albany before heading north to cheer up young patients at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
OPINION: A 82-year-old Thomasville woman helped by stranger in Albany
Calena Bennett, 82, was lost as she drove through Albany until a woman whose name she doesn’t know helped her find her way.
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.
