CLINE: A story worthy of dessert status

I’m not sure how you read a magazine, but I approach it like eating a meal.

CLINE: Return of World War II keepsakes proves some stories do end well

I don’t know about you, but I’m always up for some good news. In this line of work, we see plenty of the bad stuff so it’s refreshing when a story comes through that has a happy ending.

Atherton’s work on Dacula Memorial Day parade comes from the heart

It’s funny how often people who sincerely don’t want kudos are exactly the people most deserving of them. But that doesn’t mean heartfelt efforts shouldn’t be recognized.

CLINE: A reminder to be safe on the lake

One of the ways to prevent boating tragedies is awareness, which is where National Safe Boating Week comes in this week.

CLINE: This weekend make it a ‘Day’ out at the park

From Gwinnett’s award-winning parks to the many fine parks in its respective cities — from Suwanee to Duluth to Snellville to Sugar Hill — residents don’t lack for great facilities and amenities, everything from walking trails, to skate parks to soccer fields to dog parks. There’s no better place to hook a child on the fun of playing at the park than here.

CLINE: An ode to the month of May

Some months just hit you better than others. But there’s something about May that makes me feel good.

CLINE: A stroll down memory lane

My mother is Beverly Goldberg. I realized that this weekend while going through boxes of my old stuff that I cleaned out of her house.

CLINE: Greater Gwinnett Championship more than just golf

While the golfers are the focal point of the Greater Gwinnett Championship (hard to have a golf tournament without them), the event also raises money for charity while utilizing a dedicated and talented group of volunteers. This year, charitable proceeds will go to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and the Gwinnett Medical Center Foundation,

CLINE: Relay a Gwinnett tradition like no other

There are many traditions in Gwinnett County, but today we are a month out from one of the biggest and most successful. Here in Gwinnett we like to tout the many merits of the county, but there’s only one thing that I know of that can bill itself as best in the world.

CLINE: The selfless act of rescuing a dog

People who help rescue dogs are amazingly selfless. We see it in all walks of life, from people who volunteer at food pantries or Habitat for Humanity or for their church or at the local shelter. It seems only fitting to remind people of that selfless way of thinking during the week of Easter.

CLINE: If sideline reporters worked in the real world

As you drive toward the restaraunt, you can’t help but thinking what a waste of time the questions were. How they didn’t particularly provide any insight or accomplish anything other than taking up time. At that moment, you may have a feeling shared by any coach whose game has appeared on national television.

CLINE: The road to nowhere sometimes isn't all that bad

There are a lot of hypothetical questions people like to pose, but we don’t usually ask about not-so fun things, like: Where would you prefer to break down if your car decided it wasn’t going to run?

CLINE: Building the foundation of volunteering

I think we’re all up for good deeds. It’s direction where we often need help. Most of us are willing to help out, we’re just not sure how or when or where

CLINE: Read Across America event sets perfect foundation

As birthday celebrations go, it’s a pretty good one. In honor of Dr. Suess’ birthday, March 2 has become Read Across America Day, where children are encouraged to continue reading and learning. In Gwinnett, the celebration is usually extended for the entire week, and in fact, March is also Read Across Georgia month, which supports child literacy in the state.

CLINE: A whole lot of nothing

It was good enough for “Cool Hand Luke” to make into a winning hand, so maybe nothing is good enough to make into a column.
