There's no hiding it, I'm a "Twilight" fan. Hey, I don't approve of all the hype. All I know is that while reading Stephenie Meyer's best-selling novels, there were moments where I genuinely felt as if I had been magically transported into Bella Swan's shoes.

Old kitchens hold memories, memorials

The kitchen is the heart of the home. This is as true today as it was 100 years ago. Back then, the kitchen was a separate little building that usually was built before the main house.

Travels with the Courier

Ann Parker and James Blank pose with a copy of the Coastal Courier on May 17 outside the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, Fla. One week earlier, Parker had donated a kidney to Blank.
