Lively ladies in pink

Hinesville's Suzie Q's, a group of local residents committed to finding a cure for breast cancer, participated in a flash mob dance Friday evening in front of Walmart on Highway 84. Ladies, gentleman and children decked out in pink clothing boogied down to the Cupid Shuffle as onlookers cheered. Suzie Q's founder Deidre Howell said the event was designed to raise awareness for the fight against cancer.

Patience pays off with discipline

The human desire for short-term gratification is satisfied by jet planes that travel coast-to-coast in four hours, fast-food outlets and all manner of new and ever-faster electronic technologies.
