Time out, time out, we can still do something about this before we get too much further into the season. It's just been one weekend, so we can stop the madness now. Please, let's all go back to normal football uniforms before something happens that we all regret - if it hasn't happened already. I confess to feeling an uneasy twinge in the pit of my stomach Saturday night when the University of Georgia Bulldogs took the field wearing uniforms that made their offensive line look like 300-pound cardinals.

On Friday, Jan. 6, I had the privilege of speaking during the Battle of Hancock Sesquicentennial Commemoration at the Hancock Performing Arts Center. The four-day event was coordinated by Ms. Lily Wolford and included many activities for young and old alike. My hat is off to her and to the town of Hancock for their efforts. In my view, the Hancock event was a fitting start to Civil War commemorations statewide in 2012. In preparing my remarks, I came across some information that I thought would be interesting to readers along the same lines as my column published last Sunday.

It has turned Harris from walk-on transfer into impact starter in the Terrapins' secondary. But when it comes to direction, Harris gets his game plan from a higher power.
