Q: My 23-month-old son does well with potty training when we're at home. We use a "potty bell" and he goes every 90 minutes or so. When we're away from home, however, he seems clueless. He pees in his car seat about 5 minutes into a trip and simply will not use a potty anywhere but at our home or at my mother's (she watches him one day a week at her place). Would pull-ups be a bad thing to use when we leave the house?

Mr. Jones, the owner of a small farm on the coast, advertised for a hired hand. But people were hesitant about working on farms in the area out of fear of the terribly destructive storms that so often threatened buildings, crops and the lives of both people and animals. Consequently, the farmer found it almost impossible to hire anyone to help him with the work.

It's mid-morning on a sunny Saturday, after a satisfying brunch and visit to my local farmers' market. Dressed completely casually with nowhere to be, I stroll along East Main Street in downtown Statesboro to find an inviting sidewalk chalkboard and the doors open wide at CAKE Bakery and Cool Beanz Espresso Bar. Upon entering, I discover much more than cupcakes and caffeine. Here two kindred spirits - one culinary artist and one head coffee geek - have joined forces to make their dreams a reality.

What's a shade tree worth? It all depends on how large it is, the kind of tree it is and where it is located. For example, it isn't unusual to place a value of ten thousand dollars or more on a large live oak on coastal property. The value could be higher if several specimen live oaks are strategically located on a given piece of commercial property. Large and smaller shade trees increase the value of residential home-sites substantially versus those sites where trees are non existent. Real estate agents are well aware of this factor when pricing ...

For a long time, manure and other agricultural residuals have been, at best, a fertilizer, and at worst, a liability for farmers. That's no longer the case. In today's emerging world of reuse and bioenergy, farmers can transform that liability into an asset that benefits not only farmers, but everyone who seeks a cleaner and more sustainable environment.
