Joe Dominick called it a career after 70 years of polishing leather in the Upstate. He started off in the 1940s charging 10 cents for a shine, and typically got 3 cents in tips – “maybe a quarter” for shine and tip.
The Pulse nightclub, the gay venue where 49 people were shot and killed last month, has found its way onto itineraries for tourists from around the world who pay their respects and leave handmade memorials.
When it comes to taking care of our hair, many of us just stick to the basics: a little shampoo and a little conditioner. But there are many factors that can cause damage to our hair and require a little extra attention be paid.
Q: We live near the water and four or five pairs of some kind of small heron have built nests in some very large maple trees in the front of our house. The first year they did this there was only one pair and we thought it was kind of cool, but now the mess on our front lawn is unbelievable. Poop and feathers are everywhere and all over our cars if we park them in the driveway. Is there any way we can discourage the birds from living here? Nothing scares them at all; people on our block shoot off fireworks every Fourth of July and it does not faze these birds at all.

On a Friday morning, Rachel McAlister is hard at work. She is methodical, carefully forming balls of dough, weighing each into small, flat, pancakes before filling them with a sundried tomato, spinach and feta mix.
At night, we've started experimenting with keeping our youngest son in a crate. He's 13, and in the early stages of a rough pubescence - is that redundant? Aren't all pubescences rough? Like hurricanes and root canals, aren't they all a little harrowing?
Q: Our son is a rising second-grader at a private school. Last year, his behavior was often disruptive and sometimes even downright defiant - problems his first grade teacher did not have with him. At home, we have no more than typical "boyishness" - nothing approaching serious. Nonetheless, at the school's request we took him to a private counselor they recommended. When that did no good, the school began insisting he had a disorder and wanted him put on medication - something we will not do. Anyway, we want to take preventive steps to head this off before it becomes an issue in the coming school year. Can you give us any advice?
I fielded four calls before I finally found out that my name and number had been posted on a bathroom wall. It's not as bad as it sounds. My contact info, along with my picture, are on a poster on the bathroom wall where one of the grands is potty training.
Sisters Anna, Emily, Grace and Mary Claire Mathias are similar in that they’re all sassy, giggly and sharp, which is in contrast to how they initially gained notoriety. The Lexington girls make up a set of identical quadruplets, one of only about 70 sets in the world and even rarer in the fact that they were conceived naturally. The rising high school juniors turned 16 in February and have the wonders and woes of their late teen years to look forward to, from driving to figuring out career pathways and college.
