Dick Yarbrough: Centennial celebrations provide a trip down memory lane

You are going to have to give me a little room to reminisce today. I am having an attack of the nostalgias. Going down someone else's memory lane can be as boring as a lecture on the life cycle of guppies, but this has been a reflective few weeks for me.

Dick Yarbrough: A tribute to those feeding a vital community need

Sometimes we forget that there are a lot of good people on this earth doing good things.

(Happily, his health has improved and the oxygen tank is history.)

Dick Yarbrough: Methodists produce new committed ministers

I spent last week helping to assess a group of people for a job I couldn't do if my life depended on it. Actually, what they were seeking is not a job; it is a calling. And my life here and in the hereafter depends on how well they do it.

Dick Yarbrough: Junior Lee says 'LOL' to electing younger Ga. lawmakers

If you watched the Super Bowl a couple of weeks ago - and reports say 114 million of us did - perhaps you saw a portion of the reprehensible behavior of Seattle wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who after scoring a touchdown proceeded to mime pulling down his pants, squatting as if on a commode before dropping the ball to the ground as if he was doing his business.
