Skaggs: Feeling contained? Embrace the space

Thompson: Use your filters for more than coffee

Deborah, a regular reader and contributor to this column, recently shared some "coffee filter" tips with me. I'll confess, I never knew there were so many things you could do with coffee filters besides make coffee. For example, you can use them to clean windows and mirrors - they're lint free and don't leave streaks. You can use them to drain used cooking oil and remove food debris. Finally, you can use them to weigh chopped food. (I'm starting to really like coffee filters!)

Rich: A gentle woman and her gentle tales

In the sleepy Southern town of Selma, Ala., there is no denying that history has visited in times past and made its memorable mark. To enter into the town from the interstate, it is necessary to cross the Edmund Pettis Bridge, made famous by the march of civil rights protesters.

Myers: God will never comparison shop

Shortly after Cole was born, I was holding him and watching Chloe play. I turned to Amy and said, "I know this is awful to say, but I wish he'd hurry up and grow up a little, so we can do more things with him like we do with Chloe."
