In What Would Andy Do? 

Wouldn't it be great if we could all live in quaint Mayberry, N.C., where great aunts bake pies all day, folks can yell for their little ones and they come a-runnin', and the roots of the ugly tree run deep? If you're a fan of The Andy Griffith Show and feel Sheriff Andy Taylor and company exemplify values that can teach contemporary society a thing or two, you'll be in good company at the Brooks Avenue Church of Christ in Raleigh Sunday evenings at 6 p.m., when they present Lessons from Mayberry: Values Learned from a Simpler Time. Each week , their celebration of the '60s TV show will begin with a screening of one episode, followed by a discussion of the life lessons it shares (community building, caring, love for neighbors, whatever), and an ice cream social! If you'd love a Sunday oasis of niceness before your office Internet connection starts belching forth unrequested links to online porn sites come Monday morning, stop by and whistle along with Andy. Call 821-2400 for details. --Laura Hatmaker
