Off the Shelves: Ghostly tale for young adults has spirited fun

One part ghost story and one part fairy tale, Lauren Oliver's middle-grade novel "Liesl and Po" takes us into the dark, lonely attic where young Liesl has been locked away by her wicked stepmother (in literature, is there really any other kind?) after the death of Liesl's beloved father.

Eyes of the Father: Salvation is about the message, not the messenger

For several weeks she'd been so close. She knew what sin was, she knew that it separated us from God and she knew that Jesus came to die for our sins. Yet she hadn't quite made the connection between Jesus dying for our sins and us needing to personally accept his sacrifice - and him as savior - in order to receive that forgiveness.

Time for strawberry planting

Strawberries are definitely a spring and early summer fruit, so why talk about them in October? Well, this is the best time of the year to plant them.

Off the Shelves: ‘Night Circus’ showcases a stylish spectacle, but sacrifices depth

I always felt October is a magical month: the transformation of the trees into the warm colors of autumn, the crisp breeze that is a much-needed salve to summer's heat. And my favorite holiday is just around the corner, a night of masquerade and treats make Halloween so much fun.

Gardening with Wanda: Plants to make your garden come alive with fall color

To a gardener, this time of year brings on thoughts of autumn color in our landscape's flowers, shrubs and trees. There is nothing more pleasing to the eye than to look out over a canvas of yellow, oranges and deep reds.

Wheeler: Healthy planting now will keep your tree thriving

Putting plants in the ground is something that I think we have all done in our lives. Most people get a sense of satisfaction by taking a bare flower bed or area and adding trees, flowers or shrubs.

Wine Without Pretense: Napa Valley has a competitor in Georgia

Way back in 1976 a British wine exporter living in Paris decided to shake the trees. His name was Steven Spurrier (no, not the old ball coach) and what he did had a seismic impact on the wine world that reverberates today.

Eyes of the Father: A father's comforting embrace saves us from the darkness

We were visiting Amy's family in Texas. The girls had a sleepover at Amy's sister's place, leaving the men folk to fend for ourselves. We hunted down and killed our own dinner (we ordered a pizza). Then we sat around the campfire (the TV) and told stories of past hunts and tribal victories (we watched a movie). Then we all lay down and went to sleep in our various beds.

Wheeler: Composting: Greens, browns combine to form ‘black gold’

We are getting into the best of year with cooler weather and crisp days that give a bit of excitement because it feels like college football and fall festivals. Even though it is the end of the growing season, everything from plants to animals seems to enjoy a break from the oppressive heat.

Around the Home: Navigating the grocery options

I often walk down grocery aisles and marvel at the vast array of products now available to U.S. consumers. The sheer number of choices confuses even the wisest food shopper.

Off the Shelves: 'Orchard' smells sweet, but tastes dry

I would think out of all the five senses, the sense of smell would be the trickiest to properly portray within a novel.
