Aah, men who cook – we women just love them! The number of men cooking at home is growing. More and more they are the ones doing the sautéing, slicing and dicing. The days of June Cleaver are gone.
Many American citizens do not realize how lucky they are having all the rights that citizenship entails. I am delighted to have a coveted Green Card, but the process involved is mind-boggling.
Regional history buffs celebrated a significant event Oct. 23 at Mallow Plantation at Pine Harbor in McIntosh County. Lt. Col. John McIntosh, best known as the commander of the Continental Troops at Fort Morris in 1778 during the American Revolutionary War, was interred for a third time.
There's a stereotype following young military wives around, regardless of how often one proves it false.
Trash. Garbage. Waste. Rubbish. Refuse. Debris. Whatever you call it, it is a significant problem. Waste that is not disposed of properly can overwhelm our lives. Have you ever seen pictures of places like France, where workers currently are on strike and the garbage is not being picked up? It just accumulates. When you see mountains of uncollected trash on streets and curbs, it is easy to understand how much waste we create every day. ...
By Don Gardner I get a number of calls about how to get rid of moles in the landscape. I guess the best short answer is: with great difficulty. Moles seem to be a recent and rapidly growing problem all along the Georgia coast. I have no idea why that is, I just know that it is.

Autumn means cooler weather, football and homecoming. Although traditions vary by school, homecoming is usually associated with a football game. Homecoming week is exciting – it creates memories that last a lifetime.
Q: My 10-year-old daughter has been asking for a year now to shave her legs. So far I have said no, mainly because putting a razor in the hands of a 10-year-old doesn't seem safe. Though she is small for her age and not even close to starting puberty, her legs really are quite hairy and she gets teased about them sometimes. I don't want to promote vanity, but I hate to see her self-conscious ...
