I think my husband and my daughter's pediatrician are in cahoots. Before I elaborate, let me stress that I like our pediatrician very much. He's been practicing for more than 20 years and has raised five healthy children of his own. He previously served as chairman of Memorial University Medical Center's Department of Pediatrics and definitely seems to know his stuff.
I'm not cool. I listen almost exclusively to classic rock, and I cannot pass up a "Golden Girls" rerun marathon. I don't have a sophisticated cell phone, iPad, mp3 player, gaming console, GPS, TiVo or any other trendy electronic devices. Now, I'm not a total cave-dweller; I do have a computer, a simple cell phone, a television and a DVD player, but that's about it. And I'm fine with that.
Raising a baby is tough. I doubt that comes as a surprise to the hardworking parents out there. What many people fail to realize is that having a baby is even harder when new parents have no support network.
Coastal residents and out-of-state visitors alike converged on Riceboro to learn about the Geechee culture Saturday through exhibits, demonstrations, performances and music.
Savannah Feed the Hungry made an encore visit to Liberty County on Saturday and the charitable food distribution organization brought along a special guest: Naomi Barber King, sister-in-law of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Liberty County Chamber of Commerce members put business matters aside for a few hours Friday night and enjoyed fresh food and the company of friends during the annual membership appreciation Lowcountry boil.
My husband and I have really been trying to watch our budget lately, which means no eating in restaurants or ordering takeout. I've always enjoyed cooking so, if time permits, I don't mind preparing dinner at home most nights. The thing that deters me is actually the cost.
The delectable smell of perfectly smoked and sauced pork, ribs and chicken lured area residents to downtown Hinesville on Saturday evening, where the ninth annual Blues & BBQ festival ran from 5-11:30 p.m. in the Liberty County Justice Center parking lot on M.L. King Jr. Drive.
Many things about government make no sense to me. That may just be because I'm not a government policy scholar … or it may be because some government guidelines really are, well, senseless.
The United Way of the Coastal Empire's Liberty County branch kicked off its portion of the organization's annual campaign Thursday evening by announcing a slightly increased fundraising goal of $181,000 - $1,000 more than last year's $180,000 goal.
I think I know why society is a bit screwed up – and it might have something to do with the Kardashian family and people like them. No, I am not an avid Kardashian fan. Until recently, I didn't even know the first names of the Kardashian family members (well, except for Kim because everybody knows her). But after seeing a clip of their ridiculous show, "Keeping Up with the ...
Lisa Marra, owner of FraLi Gourmet, talked with a customer at the farmers market about her all-natural pasta and marinated vegetables, which she sold Thursday evening in Bradwell Park. Marra had never before set up shop at the Hinesville Farmers Market, but said she was enjoying her experience and plans to return.
I recently bought a new hair straightener (or flat iron - whatever you call it). It came with a pamphlet of info that included tips, suggestions, hairstyles and a 1-800 number to call in case the user runs into problems. The pamphlet didn't specify what kind of problems, which I found amusing. Do they mean if I have mechanical problems with the straightener? Or do they mean if I have ...
A member of Rogers Tree Service's crew takes down limbs from a large willow oak tree Tuesday morning in downtown Hinesville's Bradwell Park. A portion of the park near the tree had been closed to the public as a safety precaution after the tree was struck by lightning last week. Liberty County Extension Coordinator Robert Bell and an arborist assessed the tree and advised the city to take it down because the structural integrity of ...
OK, first I'll apologize because it has been so long since I've written a blog. I have lots of special sections and projects going on at work these days - no spare time for fun stuff like blogging.
Although you, my devoted readers and fans, likely are reading this on Mother's Day, it was written several days ahead of time, so I have no idea what kinds of surprises this special day will hold for me.
This column almost didn't happen. I didn't think I'd have time to write it.
I can't stop going to Publix. I want to stop. My wallet wants me to stop. And I'm sure "the other grocery store" would welcome my return. I've thought about quitting Publix many times. I've even formulated plans. But the thought of braving the overcrowded, messy "other store" and putting up with their ... ummm, less-than-polite employees when I could be shopping at clean, organized Publix while being greeted by their courteous, thoughtful staffers keeps foiling my plan.
