Martin Luther King Jr. once said he had a dream “…that one day on the red hills of Georgia the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit down together at the table of brotherhood.” Brotherhood is another name for community and it is a need at the core of every human being.

Hunting for Bargains – Are They Really Out There? by Deon Cannon

It’s in our nature to search high and low for a good deal, especially in real estate and the stock market.  We’ve all heard the comment, “Buy low, and sell high.” Of course, that’s just common sense.

That’s the time many sellers who are holding multiple properties may be more inclined to accept a lower purchase price.

If you've driven by the shopping center at the intersection of Old Salem Road and Highway 138, you've probably seen a new fresh bakery called The SugarMill, Inc.! We love The Sugar Mill and we can't get enough of their fresh pastries, cakes and cheesecakes. In fact, when we were out distributing the new edition of The Metro Times, we stopped by for a slice of one of their delicious cakes. Stop in and have some friendly conversation, while enjoying some coffee and a giant cinnamon roll. ... See MoreSee Less

The loud morning cries outside my tent are the most peaceful noises I’ve heard in months. ...
