Disaster and tragedy in our world are common. Sometimes it seems that, "like bananas, they come in bunches!" Floods, earthquakes and storms affect populations over a wide area. Accidents great and small bring sorrow and heartache to people everywhere. But valuable lessons can come even from tragedy.
Q: We are looking for a private school for our 4-year-old. Regardless of the school we ultimately choose, we want to keep him there through eighth grade at least. We live in an suburban area, so we have a lot of options to choose from. Our son is intelligent, creative and very imaginative. Do you have a recommendation?
The bride was as lovely as I have ever seen, the groom as serious. The bridesmaids floated down the aisle like mermaids, the groomsmen lumbered like the men they were. Summerall Chapel was majestic, the flags of the
With classes starting Monday and the excitement of the upcoming football season adding to the enthusiasm, Georgia Southern University welcomed a new academic year Monday night with a raucous Day One celebration.

Greg Fulton thinks his teenage daughter, who's already hit three solid objects with her car - thankfully, no humans or other moving vehicles included - would do better with a car that comes equipped with a blind-spot/lane-change alert (notifies the driver when another vehicle is approaching on either side), lane assist technology (gently guides the car, if it begins to drift, back into the proper lane), a backup camera display, backup alerts, a pedestrian sensor, automatic braking and a radio that won't come on unless everyone is buckled in.

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.

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!
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.

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.

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.
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.
Up ahead, where the hard flatness of the highway drops off to a ragged edge, a large bird sits with his back to the white ...
