Get a double shot of nostalgia with Wii’s Pac-Man Party. One CD ($19.99) hosts ’80s arcade games and Millennial play that looks and feels a lot like Candy Land and Monopoly board games.

Thoroughly enjoying teaching the adults at our church here on the Bolivar Peninsula in our Sunday school hour, we have recently delved into the subjects of salt and light. Common enough sounding topics, but so much information is contained therein that we have had long discussions, wonderful illustrations from real life, and many opportunities to ask questions and to offer opinions. This is what good, quality teaching is all about, in my opinion. It is not necessarily one “expert” standing and giving his or her opinion for hours on end.

Q. I have been living with a man for over 27 years. We have never been married and don’t have a common law marriage. He was married before. What will I be entitled to if he dies?

Tarpon fishing along much of the Gulf Coast usually comes to life in June and gets better as we head in the hot months of August and September. Many are caught in October, or until the cool fronts begin to chill the water. In fact, the Texas state record tarpon was caught on Oct 4, 2006.

So where is the best place to fish for tarpon along the Gulf Coast? Based on personnel experience, you can’t go wrong out of Venice, La. Along the Texas coast, tarpon fishing can be pretty darned good from the Sabine jetties and on down the coast around Port O’Connor.

I was discussing the upcoming archery deer season with Gary Cox, owner of Trophy Hunter’s Archery in Lumberton last week. Cox indicated that each year more and more folks were becoming involved in not only the deer hunting, but also all sorts of other hunting offerings. Feral hogs have become really a top-notch challenge for archers. There is an overabundance of the feral pigs, and archers are chomping at the bit to go after them.

Oscar Mauzy, former state senator and Supreme Court justice, had a large sign hanging on the wall of his senate office. It read, “Forgive and remember.” Unfortunately, too many voters have not adopted the part about remembering. It is my belief too many voters do not necessarily forgive — they simply forget.

We have all heard the common and trite clichés that the only things that are for sure are death and taxes. For computer users, regardless of operating system or brand of computer, there is a third “truth,” and that is that hard drives will eventually fail. Hard drives, regardless of brand and reputation, are electro-mechanical devices with a lot of very fast moving parts, motors and some type of electronic controller that makes it work.

Many thought Richard Patrick was crazy for leaving Nine Inch Nails in 1993, but after millions of fans heard the first album from his band Filter, they applauded him.Filter graced the music world with five studio albums with popular tunes such as “The Best Things,” “Welcome to the Fold,” “Dose,” “Where Do We Go from Here?” and, of course, “Hey Man, Nice Shot” and “Take a Picture.”
