Take in the Fourth this year

By EMILY JACKSON,

Here it is again, staring us right in the face, my second favorite holiday, the Fourth of July. Second favorite because my love of haunted houses, scary movies, and costumes ranks Halloween number one with me. The Fourth runs a close second place though. The year is halfway over and Summer is in full swing.








Sweet Summertime

By EMILY JACKSON,

It’s not officially Summer yet by the calendar terms, but with temperatures crawling into the high nineties and school letting out, sweet summertime has been declared in the South.  It’s officially time for front porch sittin’, creek swimmin’, cookouts, watermelon, and all of the other wonderful things we southerners enjoy this time of year.
