Introducing the Unaffordable Care Act

By Joni Williams   In the past year, I’ve undergone a lot of diagnostics simply trying to get a, well, diagnosis. This included two MRIs, one CT scan and enough x-rays to turn me into a human glow stick. I also had a needle longer than my forearm stuck through my back, kind of like a rotisserie...

I Don’t Care What You Call Me

By Sean Dietrich   I wasn’t going to write this. But I did anyway.   Yesterday, I got accused of being a Christian. It was an odd insult. He said the word hatefully.   I didn’t answer.   So he said it again.   I paid my tab and walked outside to get some air.   The first...

Peace and Love Walk

By Leslie Kolovich   When my eyes open each morning, I’m greeted with the sight of the beautiful marsh grasses of coastal dune lake Camp Creek. I have the privilege and responsibility of living near this rare jewel. My dogs wait patiently for me as I breathe in the morning view before my feet hit...

Willie

By Sean Dietrich   Last week, my wife surprised me with tickets to a Willie Nelson concert, saying, “Pack your bags, Miss Daisy.”   The next thing I knew, we were sitting 400 feet away from the Red Headed Stranger himself.   He played all the classics. One by one. And when he sang “Mamas...

How Do I Love Thee?

By Paula Hilton   A long, long, long time ago, back in the ‘90s, I co-authored a book called When Romeo Wrote Juliet. A friend came up with the idea because he had, in his short 35 years of life, quite a collection of handwritten “love letters” from quite a collection of women.   Yes, he was...

I’m Rich!

By Paula Hilton   No, I didn’t win the lottery, although my family and I do continue trying. Our “corporation,” as we call it, invests each week in the Powerball hoping to bring it home one of these days.   Hasn’t happened yet, but I’m still rich. Because living here in Beachcomberland, I’ve...

Nothing Lasts Forever

By Sean Dietrich   Foley, Alabama. I’m sitting in Lambert’s restaurant. This is the “home of throwed rolls.” Servers stroll the dining rooms, tossing yeast rolls at customers like four-seam fastballs.   A waiter lobs one at me. It hits me square in the teeth. He laughs. So does my wife.  ...

The Bucket List

By Paula Hilton   It’s 2017 and time to pull out that pesky list of New Year’s Resolutions I made last year. You probably have the same list somewhere, right? Tucked safely away so you won’t lose it. Or look at it.   I did look at mine a few times this past year, and at one point got out...

Christmas in Beachcomberland

By Paula Hilton   Christmas is such a special time. Something about all the lights and blow-up snowmen just tickle my fancy. And for me, it’s even more special because I live in beautiful Beachcomberland surrounded by family. My parents, my sister and her family, and my adult children and their...

Give Thanks

By Sean Dietrich   My uncle deep fried a turkey. At age 12, I’d never seen such a thing. He claimed it made the bird taste better.   But I think he did it because he liked sipping Budweiser outdoors.   It was my first Thanksgiving as a fatherless kid. It was going to be a lonely one. The...
