Carrie Ann Baade: 'Piece and Pieces'

It's been a summer of artistic exploration for local children at the Averitt Center for the Arts, and many of them have learned the art of collage. Composed of fragments of found imagery from magazines, books and fabric, collage is an art that reorganizes these elements into new, startling compositions.

Some Kinda Good with Rebekah Faulk Lingenfelser: Summer road trip to remember

As a final ode to summer's end and in celebration of our one-year wedding anniversary, my husband and I took a road trip to visit family on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, a little slice of Southern coastal heaven. Before last week, I had never been to the Magnolia State. I've been missing out!

Kathy Bradley: Marco Polo, Magellan and me

Late in the day, when the light has bloomed lavender and the audible heartbeat of the earth has faded to a quiet drone, when the heat of the day is old and settled, I walk outside to meet the dragonflies.

Parenting Advice with John Rosemond: Stepparents should have disciplinary discretion

Q: The woman I've been dating - a single mom with two young boys - and I have decided to get married. My only reservation, and I've told her this, concerns the stepfather thing. I'm not clear, and really neither is she, on the proper role and responsibilities of stepfathers, especially in the area of discipline. She reads your column religiously and told me to ask you for advice. It would be most appreciated.

Fun with the Family with Julie Lavender: Enjoy some last-minute summer fun

Large, yellow children- and teen-movers on the highways in the early hours of the morning and again in the mid-afternoon can only mean one thing: School is back in session. And though most parents and children believe that signifies summer's end, technically and calendar-speaking, almost six weeks of summertime remain.

Thinking of God with Larry Sheehy: Pay attention to your inner self

Cosmetic surgery has been a booming business for many years. An amazingly high percentage of people have had one, two and in some cases several operations to correct things they believe are wrong with their bodies. Many of these are not abnormalities or dangerous growths but the natural effects of aging and the results of abusing the human anatomy. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reported that 15.6 million cosmetic procedures, including both minimally invasive and surgical, were performed in the United States in 2014. In addition, 5.8 million reconstructive surgery procedures were performed.

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 ...

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. When that did no good, the school began insisting he had a disorder and wanted him put on medication - something we will not do. Anyway, we want to take preventive steps to head this off before it becomes an issue in ...

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: Commonsense rules for taking kids to restaurants

The Wall Street Journal recently interviewed Daniel Eddy, a New York City chef, on how to have a mutually successful experience with a young child in an upscale restaurant ("How to Take Your Kids Out to Eat and Actually Enjoy the Experience," July 14, 2016). The WSJ obviously thinks that being a chef qualifies one as an expert the subject; it seems to me, however, that a waitperson would have the better perspective.

Kathy Bradley: Heat to boiling

It is so hot. So hot that, by 7:30 in morning, the basil on the deck droops like little green flags on a windless day. So hot that, at 7:30 in the evening, it takes less than 10 minutes to be damp with sweat and sticky with salt and for gnats to be going after my eyes like children on parade candy.
