Introducing Oscar Cannon

One Saturday morning, I ran by the bank to pick up a checkbook that had arrived and found the place to be unusually busy. I did a double take when I saw my nephew, Jay, a financial advisor, in an office with clients. He's a family man who devotes weekends to his kids.

A strange series of strange events

Iris Long may have been the only person in the Valley who wasn't surprised by the strange series of events taking place among the various congregations on Bearden's Corner that fateful Sunday in late October. She had a hint something was up on Saturday as she caught a glimpse of Raymond Cooper and his minions making plans in the lobby of Talk Radio 880.

Irma bring Big Ben traditions to mind

As I write this we are under a mandatory evacuation order thanks to Hurricane Irma, but it looks like she is veering westwards, so we watch, wait and pray. By the time this goes to print, old Irma will have passed, and we will all be dealing with the aftermath. I can honestly say that sometimes hurricane season does make me miss the gray but relatively boring English weather!

Remember the elderly in storm preparations

Severe weather is always a major concern for our elderly. If you have older loved ones somewhere in the southeastern portion of the U.S., you should have had at least one phone call with them by now.

Even Sunday service are not sacred

More often than not, Sunday was the most anticipated day of the week in The Valley. It's not because anything earth-shattering took place in the four sanctuaries each week, but most folks like having people and places in their lives that don't change significantly over time, and the Sunday service was just such a place.

Calling the emergency services

As we race towards September, my mind always turns to the somber anniversary of 9/11, and the terrible toll it took on the emergency services. These brave souls headed directly into danger in the burning Twin Towers in New York to save others. I have always had a strong affinity, appreciation and respect for first responders of all kinds, and this tragic event 16 years ago underscores how these outstanding people really do risk everything to protect others.
