This is about one of those "back burner" issues for some of you. I'd like to see you move it up front and really start something cooking. Let me tell you about an experience I had Thursday afternoon, May 22nd.

Saturday, April 19, 2008, was a gorgeous day. The chance of rain predicted by the "weather man" seemed to evaporate in Schley County, and skies were a brilliant blue. What a great day for a wedding.The Corinth United Methodist Church was packed for the ceremony uniting my cousin, Ann-Marie Phillips Streetman, and Robert Kevin DeVane in marriage. The ceremony itself was the nicest one of its kind I have attended in a very long time. Kevin's parents, Tommy and Susan DeVane, hosted a reception following the wedding at their home acrosss Ga. Hwy. 26 from the church. The bride and bridegroom, accompanied by Ann-Marie DeVane's two daughters, Maggie and Mary Kate Streetman, rode over to the house in a white carriage driven my Ken Adams. The wedding party, directed by Kim Lawhorn, was just as n...
