Prepare for the descent of the winged red-eyed ‘monsters’

In the coming weeks, much of Hall County will be invaded by a rare sight; six legged, winged creatures with red eyes. These creatures are not from a far off land or a distant planet, but they are a normal occurrence for our part of the country. Georgia's only 13-year cicada will emerge from the ground.

Eyes of the Father: Do we have God or does God have us?

We were on vacation at the beach last summer and went swimming at the hotel's swimming pool. I don't know about you, but there seems to be something wrong with that. If you're at the beach, why are you swimming in a pool? In spite of the warped logic, that's where we were.
