Glazer: An inspiring athlete’s power of perseverance

When Nicolai "Nico" Calabria was born, his mother phoned her sister. Excitedly, she told the new aunt about the baby's blond curls and blue eyes, that he weighed 6 pounds 7 ounces. Then she added, "He only has one leg."

Glazer: Story closes on iconic local bookstore

I hate when a local business closes. The only exception is when the long-time owners are folding up shop so they can move to the tropics.

Glazer: A mother’s scent, sense live on

Last Sunday was Mother's Day. For me it was a solitary one, the first I've spent alone since becoming a mother in 1986.

Glazer: Kids still need a chance to act the part

It all started when the Harley Avenue Primary School staff decided to cancel the yearly kindergarten musical. It's long been a tradition at this Elmwood, N.Y., school and many parents were understandably unhappy. So much so that one parent even started an online petition to restore the performance.

Glazer: Is it better to confront hatred or ignore it?

It was around 1989 when some permutation of the Ku Klux Klan and a motley group of affiliated miscreants applied for and was - as is their right - given permission to demonstrate in Gainesville. At the time my business was located in the Jackson Building on downtown's Washington Street.

Glazer: Longing for some good ol’ Mayberry justice

Last night, I realized I had failed my daughter. She was home from college for a brief visit and we settled in for some TV time. We flipped through a couple of thousand channels, most of them permutations of various "Law and Order" franchises, until I stumbled across a 1961 episode of "The Andy Griffith Show."

Glazer: Celebrating courage of ‘A Natural Woman’

I came of age in the 1970s. Carole King composed the soundtrack to my early college years. And not just mine, it appears. Her 1971 album, "Tapestry" is, even to this day, one of the best-selling albums of all time.

Glazer: Countering the message in the merchandise

It's not hard to identify with Utah mom Judy Cox's frustration. She was recently shopping in her local mall with her 18-year-old son when she spotted the window display in the PacSun boutique.

Glazer: Bear necessities, and a win-win for all

Every family has its little traditions. When I was growing up, each year from the time I was 4 until I entered high school, there was a birthday trip to the Atlanta Zoo. Every August, I would invite a friend and my parents would take us on a day trip.

Glazer: If you’re cold now, trying living under a bridge

I'm writing this on one of the coldest nights I've ever experienced. I'm sitting at the kitchen table encased in flannel pajamas, a fleece robe, earmuffs, a Chenille infinity scarf and two pairs of socks. Across my lap is a heated throw and a space heater buzzes industriously at my feet.

Tweet heard 'round the world

Let's look at some numbers, shall we? Africa disproportionately bears the burden of the HIV/AIDS pandemic. There are 34 million people living with AIDS worldwide; of those, 69 percent live in sub-Saharan Africa.

Glazer: Finally, a home for Vashti ... uh, Betty

I heard about the abandoned kitten last week. My friend Lisa lives in a trailer community with five or six other families. She told the story with the breathless terror that most folks reserve for relating their encounter with a bear ... or a zombie.

Glazer: Celebrating faith and blended holidays

Ruth Parsons is not a lady one can easily say no to. She called out of the blue one day to ask if I would speak at the ecumenical Thanksgiving Day program she was organizing at Lanier Village Estates, a retirement community in North Hall County.

Glazer: True South is one of many different tongues

Few things irritate me more than hearing a non-Southerner try to imitate a Southern accent. No man has gotten it right since Gregory Peck in "To Kill a Mockingbird." No woman has ever gotten it right. Need an example? Kyra Sedgwick in "The Closer." Case closed.

Glazer: This carrier keeps his appointed rounds

The cellphone video told the story. A U.S. Postal Service van was parked beside a ravine. The driver was systematically taking packages from the back of the vehicle and tossing them down the hill. All in a day's work.
