Skaggs: Boxelder bugs invade

Almost every fall, county extension offices across North Georgia receive questions about the boxelder bug (Boisea trivittatus). Generally not noticed in summer, boxelder bugs often become an issue when they try to move into homes during fall as they search for overwintering sites

Rich: A story told well can be timeless

When I was a child and given to daydreaming as children often are, I dreamed of what I would be when I grew up. I wanted to be strong, courageous, glamorous and well-traveled. And more than anything, I wanted to tell stories.

Thompson: Try office storage items in your kitchen

Here's a great kitchen storage tip. Use a slotted metal file holder from your office to store thin items like baking sheets and cutting boards. It actually looks kind of cool on your kitchen counter. Just make sure you remove it before your boss comes to visit.

Thompson: Safe hunting requires a harness

If you're a deer hunter, please make sure you wear your safety harness when climbing, hunting and descending a tree.
