It wasn't intended to be a long conversation, but I should have known better than that. No call to Poet is ever abbreviated.

Wilburn: Keep financial, marital stress in check

Myers: A parent’s role is to protect their children

Cole and I went for a drive in my truck the other day. It was in the morning and as we got out on the road, Cole started fussing. I looked over to see him squinting his eyes and turning his head to the side.

Thompson: One more use for candy corn

I hope everybody had a great Halloween. OK, here's one more Halloween tip. (I can't help myself). If you have any candy corn left over, use it in place of chocolate chips when making cookies. It tastes good and keeps the memory of Halloween alive. (By the way, send me an e-mail and let me know if last week's tips were helpful or not).

Thompson: Tricks to get your ghouls through Halloween

I love Halloween. I guess it goes back to when I was a kid growing up in a suburb where there were a lot of small homes near each other.

Cook: Don’t be scared by these classic Halloween reads

I love Halloween. Nothing gets me in the mood for ghosts, ghouls and goblins better than a good scary story, so I wanted to share some of my favorite classic picks.

Skaggs: Landscape perfection requires a good plan

This fall I have received quite a few questions from area residents interested in renovating their home landscapes. Often the conversation starts something like this:

Wilburn: Help kids learn healthy habits

You are the most important influence on your child, and you can do many things to help your children develop healthy eating habits for life.

Rich: A wink may say more than you think

In Belfast, in the stunningly gorgeous building dedicated by Prince Edward in 1932 (he who abdicated), where the Northern Ireland Assembly convenes, I learned why I can never be president of the United States.

Myers: Maybe what you really need is right in front of you

I have recently added a new weapon to my child-rearing arsenal. It's called reverse psychology. Here's how it works: I give Chloe a cup of milk, but she wants juice. She pushes the cup away and says, "I don't want it. I want juice."

Thompson: Find a new use for your credit cards

Do you love brownies? Then this tip is for you. Rather than trying to cut your brownies with a knife, use an old credit card instead. A knife will usually mess up the brownies when you drag it through the pan. With the credit card, you simply push it down into the brownies - don't drag it. Just make sure that you clean the credit card before using it.
