Having served in children and youth ministries for more than 50 years, summer camps and Bible schools are among my most favorite church activities.
All of the workout classes have been a huge hit in the neighborhood. The activity committee has added more, and changed some times. These new classes and times started last Monday, Aug. 12.
I hope everyone enjoyed our second annual National Night Out block party this past week. Over 100 residents and their families, along with 20 police officers and firemen, attended the party.
According to a recent Gallup poll, Americans today are more closely divided than they were earlier in the last century when asked whether some form of socialism would be a good or bad thing for the country. While 51 percent of U.S. adults say socialism would be a bad thing for the country, …
At the risk of being called a “party pooper” I must question the expenditure of $60,000 of taxpayer money to throw an outing for Horry County employees.
Thursday, July 18, the ladies luncheon was at Brother Shuckers Fish House, 4999 Carolina Forest Blvd., with hostesses Susan Masi, Sheryl Wirtz and Lauren Shore.
It has been a hot week in Carolina Forest, and I’m enjoying our pool in the afternoons. I’ve had a busy week with the Friends of the Library bag of books sale, so I enjoyed the time I had reading a good book.
Someone I know was given the Wonder Bible. This battery-operated device reads God’s word to you; or at least it’s supposed to. This one however had a problem; something in the battery charging portion didn’t work so the device did not read to you. That Bible don’t work no more.
Summertime here in Berkshire brings out the best of the best. Some of the children in our community decided to have a lemonade stand on July 8. Olivia Latham, who has always wanted a lemonade stand, asked a friend to build her a lemonade stand as a birthday present.
As I write my column, we are having another afternoon shower. I’m thinking about all of those people in the track of tropical storm, Barry, who has his heart set on flooding out some homes and lands in Louisiana. I will keep them in my prayers and be glad that we are just getting an afternoo…
One of the things I hate to do is to miss a column. After 10 years, I have only missed about five times. Last week was one of those times.
Someone I know was given the “Wonder Bible” (As Seen On TV). This battery-operated device reads God’s Word to you; or at least it’s supposed to. This one however had a problem; something in the battery-charging portion didn’t work, so try as you might, the device did not read to you. That Bi…
Summer is in full swing, and my garden is producing all kinds of vegetables and fruit. When we got home from California, we had piles of radishes, cucumbers, eggplants, tomatoes, cantaloupes, musk melons, green beans and yellow squash. I made some pickles and gave lots away to the neighbors.…
Something akin to road rage was creeping up on me as the driver in front of me slowed down and sped up, depending on how close I got to his vehicle.
July 4 marks the 243rd anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence, one of the greatest documents ever written by man. Fifty-six patriots signed that document, pledging their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor.
It has been a busy two weeks for me, as Norm and I have been in Long Beach, California, visiting our daughter and son and their families.
Last weekend the Myrtle Beach Bowl invited The Farm residents for two hours of free bowling and free shoes. Christina Stanley put together a group, and 11 lanes were designated for The Farm.
Friday Night in The Farm had a good turnout and much better weather than The Farm’s swim night. About 75-80 residents showed up to enjoy the food from Kurbside Katering and Mr. Softee.
It wasn’t a good day or evening for the family swim night. Thanks to the food trucks Brazuka Bowls and Mr. Softee, the night was not a complete washout. They stayed on site from 6 – 8 p.m. serving the brave hearts who showed up.
Remembering when ‘a beach day’ meant grabbing a paperback book, a bottle of cream soda and a towel, I was amazed at the necessities ready to be loaded into the car for a couple hours of sunny surf.
What do/did you call him? Father (very formal)? Dad? Daddy? Old Man (Never; that’s disrespect)? I called mine “Pop” and it was a very respectful “Pop”. I can say that both my father and my father-in-law — though not perfect — were two of the best male role models” I have ever had, and I woul…
