Latest Columns

My husband, Arthur, and I each write twice-a-month columns for The Times here in Gainesville. His deal with computing and technology issues. Mine deal with whatever strikes my fancy.

Arthur's latest was published on October 2nd. Click
here to read his thoughts about online banking.

My October 1st column is about deer in the city.

Click here to read it.

In the column, I briefly mention the Hunters for the Hungry Program.

After the column was published I received an email from Kent Kammermeyer, a retired Senior Wildlife Biologist with Georgia's Department of Natural Resources.

Kent wrote with some important information: "I am a member of Lanier Branch of the Quality Deer Management Association (QDMA) in charge of our local Hunters For the Hungry (HFH) program. Currently there is no other local HFH program operating in this local area, we are the only one...

We have been operating the program for 5 years and have paid for and distributed over 5 tons of frozen ground venison to numerous local charities! But it all starts with the donation of a field dressed deer carcass at Souther's Deer Cooler in Murrayville! An average deer yields about 40 pounds of high protein venison.

We want all hunters to know this especially those bow hunters and landowners participating in the urban hunt on and around Riverside Drive. To us, HFH gives a real solid final purpose to the hunt besides reducing the high deer population and high risk of deer/car collisions (certainly both are a real public health issue).

Kay Blackstock, Executive Director of the Georgia Mountain Food Bank in Gainesville, has told us that in many cases our donated venison is the only source of high protein low cholesterol meat available to these local charities. This makes our HFH program more important than ever! Please help us get the word out ...Contact Southers Deer Cooler (770-538-0313) about a deer donation. Contact me at 706-878-6159 about a money donation to help fund the program."

Please help put the word out!

Spic and Span or Not?

Here's an excellent resource whether you're eating out in your hometown or on the road. Go to and access scores for EVERY establishment in the state that's had a health inspection!

For example, you'll discover that Paula Deen's Uncle Bubba's Oyster House in Savannah received a disappointing score of 78. Ewwww.

On the other hand, Gainesville's own Collegiate Grill, one of USA Today's 51 great hamburger joints across America, earned a sparkling 100!

Thanks to Bob from West Hall's dad for this link-- and please forgive me for forgetting your name!

It Makes Cents!

In the last couple of newsletters, we told you about the Coupon Cents and More Workshop at the Hall County Library. The first meeting was so popular that it's becoming a regular event. Plans are still being made but as it stands now, there will be a monthly meeting at the library's Gainesville Branch (127 Main St. NW.) There's also the possibility of additional meetings offsite. Even if you're an experienced clipper you'll learn how to new ways to use coupons to reduce expenses.

The next meeting is Tuesday, October 5th at 6 PM. For more information, call 770-532-3311, ext. 114 or email
