    Tucked away in the new subdivision College Place, John and Audrey Hadvab found just the right setting for their home seven years ago. As their home evolved so did their yard.

    Working with a landscape designer, they developed a plan filled with low maintenance shrubs and trees. Even after seven years of growth the shrubs, along with perennials they have added, through the years still create a beautiful look.

  • Today I am going to include four card exercises for men and women, because at some point in our training we all fall short of understanding how important it is. 

    Most reasons are the same, universal excuses we all use. 

    I hear you saying it now – “I don’t have the time” and the famous line – “It is so boring to walk on a tread mill. I hate it.”

  • When counting blessings, it’s easy to take for granted the five senses – taste, touch, smell, sight and hearing – if you’ve never been without one of them. Lancaster resident Tara Steele is counting having restored hearing in her left ear as a huge blessing, thanks to a surgery performed back in May.

  • A staple side dish at my summer cookouts is baked beans. I have a traditional recipe that my family loves, but lately I’ve been trying to switch things up a bit. I think these baked bean recipes may be just what I’m looking for.

    Every parent knows, it can be hard to please the taste buds of everyone at the table. But, it seems like Cindy Ferguson does just that with her Spicy Apple Baked Beans.

  •  Drivers on Craig Farm Road in Lancaster County may have gotten a bit distracted on Saturday, July 12, by the row of shiny Mercedes-Benz automobiles parked neatly in front of Kilburnie, the Inn at Craig Farm.

    The Haires built their home in 1970. Many of the original boxwoods and hollies kept neatly trimmed continue to thrive in the yard – a direct result of Judy’s green thumb.

    “Growing plants has always been easy for me,” Judy said. “Many times I have just stuck a small cutting from a plant in the ground and it really takes off.”

  • In another realm, I was a ball of fire, always full of energy.

    Why, I took on all kinds of projects and tasks of all sorts and sizes around our Charlotte Road Camelot.

    Now, I get up in the morning with the best intentions of getting our yard in better shape.

    No, I don’t mean that blue ribbon, Yard-of-the-Month frenzy.

    While I enjoy lookin’ at the pictures, once you win that distinction, you are under pressure and the lawn is under neighborhood microscope.

    Jimmy Wood knows what he loves about sailing.

    “The sound of the waves, the feel of the wind and the smile on my wife’s face.”

    And Wood – the acting commodore of Lake Wateree Sail Club – wants other people to experience those things and understand why the Lake Wateree Sail Club is a great place to share experiences.

    When I learned about the Southwest Florida Honor Flight, I quickly contacted Don Vecoli, founder and organizer.

    He and his staff organize the trips for World War II veterans and volunteers to visit the World War II memorial in Washington, D.C., two or three times per year.

    Barbecue.

    Perhaps nowhere in the country more than in South Carolina does the word evoke a sense of history as rich as the smell of meat in the smoker.

  • A few years ago, when I did some frequent work-related traveling between Springs’ Customer Service Center and their New York office, several of those “real city boys” used to chide me about one of my neighborly tendencies.

    For some strange, inexplicable reason, they perceived my inclination of nodding and speaking to people on the street as a “bad habit.”

    Folks in midtown New York City, they said, never make eye contact with total strangers.

    If you did, you were asking for trouble.

    More than 200 people came to the first Tribute to the Golden Legacy event at Mt. Zion AME Zion Church on Sunday, May 4.

    The purpose of the night – honor those who worked at Barr Street before it closed in 1970, said secretary of the BSHS Foundation, Dr. Charmaine Stradford.

    One girl is popular and comes from an affluent family. One girl is reserved and comes from a middle class family.

    Both give no indications that anything’s wrong, even though they are both harboring heinous secrets.

    Both are victims of teen dating violence.

    School district youth/peer counselors Deborah Boulware and Sarah Woodring know this tale all too well after hearing it time and time again.

    Nature lovers can become certified S.C. Master Naturalists and join a regional corps of citizen scientists by attending a weekly environmental training course beginning in March at the Anne Springs Close Greenway in Fort Mill.

    The Catawba Master Naturalist Program teaches participants how to explore the world around them, identify plants and animals, and better understand ecological concepts they can apply through volunteering in their communities.

    Nearly one hundred people met to present their views on the subject “Crime Watch:  Saving Our Youth.”

    It’s a cool fall morning in October, and once again streets are closed across South Carolina as runners race another 5K.

    These runners rise with the sun to run in one of the many races available on any given weekend. They run to exercise, lose weight and even make friends.

  •  With the holidays and the fun family times along with delicious dinners and deserts that we are destined to eat, I’m going to give you a few extra treats on how to keep your abs and waist line in tip top shape and still enjoy eating your favorite foods. 

  •  Whether dashing to visit family or just getting away for a leisurely trip, families spend the winter holidays away from home for different reasons.
