Earth Day: Mother Earth, the water planet

Mother Earth is a water planet. Being 'green' should include consciousness about our oceans, rivers, estuaries. It is the ocean that regulates everything on our planet, including the air we breathe. Can't relate to the global picture? Let's start with our own backyard…our marshes, rivers, creeks. Trash inland ends up in our rivers – flowing out to our islands and sounds. We need to keep our water clean – void of all pollutants. Wastewater treatment plants, no matter how state-of-the art, cannot eliminate pharmaceuticals prior to dumping their effluents. Government and private entities in this state care little about ...

Before women joined the ranks of motorcycle riders, they found themselves getting excited every time a motorcycle rumbled by. As it passed, they had an urge to jump on!

Thanks, Liberty, for having me

I'll hand it to you, Liberty County - you sure know how to make a person feel welcome. And, apparently, you've decided the old adage holds true: The way to an editor's heart is through her stomach, which is just fine with me.

A majority of the House of Representatives voted this week to approve a $17.8 billion state budget for fiscal year 2011.

Kiddie Kare will never be forgotten

I enrolled my daughter Eva into Kiddie Kare at age 1. She started in the infant room and each year "graduated" to a new classroom. All of her caregivers were loving and attentive, making it easier to leave my child while I worked a full-time job. It also made a world of difference knowing I could talk to Ms. Laverne about any questions or concerns that I ...
