Moms need friend-finding service

My attempts at making more mom friends still are failing miserably. At this point, I'd probably try an online "matchmaking" site for women with children who are looking to befriend other women with children. Sort of like eHarmony, but with sippy cups and strollers. Actually, that sounds like a great idea because then I'd get to be very picky with my criteria, thus reducing the chances I'd get "matched up" with another mom I have absolutely nothing in common with, which has kind of been my problem so far.

We did it for four years while I was a member of the planning and zoning board of the city of Pooler. We did it for 11 years while I was serving as either Pooler mayor pro tem or mayor. And we've done it for the past nine years while I've served in the state Legislature.

Emotions run high after homecoming

Homecomings are the stuff of sweet dreams and dessert for breakfast - so perfect and delicious, but often followed by either a rude awakening or a few extra pounds. As a military family member who has experienced distances because of deployment and training, I can tell you it doesn't necessarily get any easier. The families who recently have or are welcoming home loved ones this week have a few battles ahead as they work together to find a new family life balance.

Supports Kingston, Carter

Editor: Every decision by voters should be taken very seriously. It's our role as active citizens in this republic. This year, we have rare open seats for the U.S. Senate seat and our coastal Congressional seat. Our home front faces incredible challenges from a weak economy and illegal immigration to a lack of an energy policy and a broken healthcare system. Add to this a volatile world from the middle east to China and Russia and enemies circling America and Israel.
