    High fives and jump shots.
    Not necessarily in that order, but they are so uniquely American, they’re woven into the fabric of who we are in athletics.
    Nobel Prize winners to Supreme Court Justices have indulged in hand slaps.
    Jump shooter Michael Jordan could hang in the air long enough for a peanut butter sandwich before letting go.
    Today, the jump shot has inspired internet websites. Among them, Jump Shot Form, Drills, Ray Allen Technique, and How it revolutionized basketball in the 1950s.

  • COLUMN: Sawflies: a species-specific pest

    One of the very first insects that I identified as a young gardener was the pine sawfly. We had planted over a hundred white pine seedlings over 30 years ago, and after a decade or so, we started to lose a couple each year to one problem or another.
    I was charged with inspection duty. Looking for and plucking bagworms; collecting beetles in jars for identification at the County Extension Service; or closely noting the color, legs and chewing habits of the various caterpillars I encountered.

  • COLUMN: The Bible shows the way to salvation

    Two weeks ago I was talking to a person about eternal security and he said he believed people wanted eternal security but they did not want to live it. One thing is for sure, if you do not want to live it, you never got it to start with. I am a Baptist minister and I believe like the old time Baptists.
    They believed and so do I, that if you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior and nothing changed in your life and you lived the same old sinful life you always lived, you did not get anything to start with.

  • COLUMN: Looking for refreshment? Turn to the Lord

    Hard work on a hot day and someone hands you a glass of ice cold sweet tea.  You feel the cold glass in your hand and taste the sweetness on your tongue.  Just a short break in a hard and busy day, but it refreshes and renews your strength.
    I think we have all had those moments.  
    It may be a glass of tea or lemonade, or perhaps stopping for a breather under a shade tree, but we all remember those moments of refreshing.  Sometimes it is something as simple as a fresh breeze cooling us off, or a cool shower at the end of a long hard day.
