From the Editor

In this issue, both “Southern Snaps” and “Sasee Gets Candid” focus on education. Our own Connie Barnard does a wonderful job highlighting the amazing Tracy Bailey, and I gained so much knowledge from my visit with Madeleine Ritchie. Both of these women’s passion for helping our children succeed is an inspiration. There are many dedicated […]

Letter from the Editor: The Dirt

Many of you know that I have a soft spot for animals in need and have volunteered for various rescues through the years. My love for dogs, especially, has brought four wonderful little canines into my life who have enriched my world in so many ways. There are many organizations in our community that work […]

Letter from the Editor: Resolutions

My work days are spent mostly in my office, except for the few days a month I’m out on the road. I keep music playing, and the days are full of variety and satisfying work. However, the one thing I have always regretted is my office does not have a window. To compensate, several times […]

Letter from the Editor: Save the Best for Last

I love giving and receiving books, maybe because I’m a writer, but I think I just enjoy the feel of books and the anticipation of the adventure within the unread pages. When my children were little, I spent hours browsing the childrens’ aisles of bookstores, trying to choose just the right ones for each of […]

Letter from the Editor: In Good Taste

It’s time to eat. Yes, dear friends, from now until the end of the year, there are no diets, no restrictions, just the pure pleasure of good food. For years I’ve told my children that the reason they like my cooking is because I make it with love. Which is true, but most anything tastes […]

Letter from the Editor: Thrive

Most people who know me are aware that I love my volunteer work with animal rescue, mainly dogs and mostly Jack Russell Terriers. Unfortunately, it is easy to become overwhelmed with the sheer number of unwanted and abused animals who need homes, so, for the past year or so, I had been taking a break. […]

Letter from the Editor: It’s About Time

My musical tastes have always been varied and eclectic. I still love the loud rock and roll of my youth, but only occasionally when I’m feeling nostalgic. I am still stirred by Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto, and the almost painful beauty found in the music of Miles Davis. There is very little music I don’t like. […]

Letter from the Editor: Playing By the Rules

For me, swimming in the ocean is a spectacular way to spend an hour or so. It’s a great way to cool off and riding the waves is fun – I like boogie boards, too. I used to run with a group every Saturday morning, and, in the heat of summer, we would run Pawleys […]

Letter from the Editor: If You Can’t Stand the Heat…

I’ve always been one of those people who thrive in the heat – the hotter the better has always been my mantra. And, through the years, I have never understood why some people (mostly coworkers) have insisted on keeping it so cold inside during the summer months; I mean really, why have the thermostat set […]

Letter from the Editor: All Dolled Up!

Some of my fondest childhood memories are of watching my beautiful and stylish mother get dressed to go out with my father. I would stare at her while she applied her make-up, and, usually, she would put a little lipstick on me. I think that’s when my love of beauty products was born. This month, […]
