Rich: Easter dawns chances for memories

One of the things that always excites me about Easter is that it kicks off the spring and summer season; so Sundays, until Labor Day weekend, will be the stuff of which memories are made. Especially for kids.

Rich: A gentle woman and her gentle tales

Rich: Don’t call it a purse, and don’t mismatch it

Dixie Divas: Loss of parents and wisdom

There are few who cannot say truthfully they miss their parents after death has laid claim to those loved ones. The parents who taught us, scolded us and, at times, annoyed us are never forgotten, never put away on a shelf to be remembered no more.
