  • COLUMN: The value of irritating people

    Perhaps the best thing about writing a column is having a forum to work out what I believe.

    It’s also a great place to air my petty beefs and hope that somehow I can find a nugget of truth about God and his kingdom to help us all.

    But mostly I just like to publicly tattle about people who irritate me.

    For example, people who invade my personal space. This happens mostly at Walmart while at the register waiting for my grocery total.

  • TOUCHPOINTS: A true friend is loyal - always

    True friendship requires loyalty during all kinds of times. 

    There is a vast difference between knowing someone well and being a true friend.  When loyalty is present a relationship is secure and solid. When it is not, we live in insecurity and fear. 

    As a loyal person we say, “It doesn't matter what happens around us or between us there is nothing that can make me turn my back on you.”

    I Corinthians 13:7 says: “Love always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.”

  • Sammy's Market closes

    Nelda and Sammy Wooten did not have much experience when they began operating the store and gas station that became known as Sammy's Market on East Western Avenue in Sonora.

    A friend had the property available for lease 35 years ago, so the couple took it on and later bought the property, Nelda Wooten said.

    “We just got an opportunity, and we did it,” she said.

  • COLUMN: Late season care for your garden

    As the summer garden season nears an end, don’t let your guard down.  Keeping up with a few basic chores can improve your landscape’s beauty and reduce your workload next season.

    Continue weeding. Removing weeds now before they go to seed will eliminate hundreds of weeds next season. Destroy invasive weeds, those that have gone to seed and perennials that may root in the compost pile. And mulch the soil if you haven’t already done so.
