Oct. 27, 2005, column:
'Renaissance' woman leads marriage therapy group
Note: This headline that was in the newspaper doesn't reflect what the column is about. It should be something like "Creepy novel writer got spiritual start in Amarillo." --Mike H.

Another note: The following was cut from the column. Some of you might want this information:
Just wondering
* * *
Just wondering whether Dwight Huber, chairman of the Amarillo College English department, recalls his nickname, “Fightin’ Dwight, the White Knight of Right,” from Melanie Wells’s formative years at Amarillo High School. His department is sponsoring a free appearance by author Wells and her friend and fellow former Sandie, Austin musician Trish Murphy, at 9 a.m. Nov. 3 in the AC Concert Hall Theater.

Sept. 24, 2005, column:
Christ in action in Ellwood Park
(This was supposed to run in the paper Sept. 10, but the Globe-News people said it got dumped in order to include more Katrina news. A few sentences were cut from this version for space purposes. Here's what the last paragraph was supposed to be:
The look back at Elwood Park and the look forward at Hillside and Soncy are just two of the many faces of the Christian church. If you don’t like what’s going on in one congregation, I’d suggest trying another.

(Also, the headline above was in the paper, but it's not very descriptive of what the column's about.)

Articles misguided on Christian beliefs

[This column was cut to make it fit into the newspaper. Near the end, where it mentions Jesus, the following two Bible verses were in the original. The first one quotes Jesus:

“I am the way and the truth and the life,” he said. “No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6, NIV) Peter added, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.” (Acts 4:12, NIV)]

Note: The April 9 column didn't make it into the April 9 Amarillo Globe-News. Because of the pope's death, the entire front page of the Faith section was about his funeral, and coupled with a lot of ads, there wasn't room for my column. I'm not happy about that, but I understand. Stay tuned; the same column probably will run (and be linked here) April 23. --Mike H.

FYI: My column that was supposed to run in the Jan. 29 Amarillo Globe-News was delayed because of a last-minute ad on the page that took away the space. The column now is scheduled to run Feb. 12. --Mike H.
