On Aging with Dr. Roger Branch Sr.: 'Dread disease'

The term "dread disease" is not used much anymore. It once was common and applied to disastrous diseases that spread rapidly, caused great suffering and killed many people. A partial list includes smallpox, malaria, tuberculosis, yellow fever, polio, typhoid fever, pertussis (whooping cough) and diphtheria. Effective immunizations, antibiotics and better sanitization have wiped out some of these and brought others under control.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Medication will not change child's misbehavior

Q: Our son is a rising second-grader at a private school. Last year, his behavior was often disruptive and sometimes even downright defiant - problems his first-grade teacher did not have with him. At home, we have no more than typical "boyishness" - nothing approaching serious. Nonetheless, at the school's request, we took him to a private counselor they recommended.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: 4 fresh ways to enjoy sweet Georgia peaches

The familiar taste of a ripe, sweet Georgia peach is the ultimate flavor of summertime. Nothing beats biting into the fuzzy, soft fruit and hearing the sound of the peel break while the juices run down your chin. I grew up in middle Georgia, from which, according to GeorgiaPeachFestival.com, approximately 83 percent of the state's peach production comes. We often visit the popular Lane Southern Orchards, a working farm in Fort Valley, Georgia, where onlookers can watch as peaches are picked fresh and processed on the packing line. My mom and I love going to the Peachtree Caf ...
