    Morriston benefit

  • One of the things I'll miss in Georgia is our beautiful springs. In September I met with friends at Rainbow Springs. We go there frequently during the summer, always on a week day.

    For a dollar, visitors can swim, picnic, stroll the scenic paths or just relax for the whole day.

    It's the best bargain in town. The swimming area is a roped off section of the Rainbow River Springs headwater. The water is clear turquoise blue with white sand on the bottom. The temperature of the water stays the same in all seasons, a refreshing 72 degrees or so.

  • As Williston Woman's Club co-president Bunny Sandlin outlines the club's history, the movie "It's A Wonderful Life" comes to mind. Remember the part when the angel reveals to George Bailey what a significant contribution he has made to the community in which he lives?

  • First Baptist Church of Williston will celebrate 150 years with Homecoming Weekend Oct. 10-12.

  • First United Methodist Church of Williston (FUMC) will begin a Focused Living Retreat in October, but prior to that, 45-plus members-young and old, men and women, those who are retired and those who work long hours each week, gathered Saturday morning to spruce up the church's campus.

  • Going back over my columns, I've noticed bugs get short shrift. What to name a particular bug can be a puzzler. Do spiders belong in the bug category? What about butterflies? Is "bug" even a correct term. To help me, I checked out National Audubon's pocket guide to insects and spiders.
