Family interest in flowers led to 64-year business, Redwood Gardens Florist 

Carol Baker Leither has done flowers for nearly seven decades.

Learning the art from her father, who grew dahlias in Fort Dick, Leither isn’t impressed by flowers in a vase. There’s no character to it, she says. Instead, she gravitates toward arrangements with vertical lines and maybe a stargazer lily or two.

Cory's People: Mary Rogers, taking nothing for granted

“I had been lying on the couch for two weeks and I couldn’t move. If I needed to get up, I had to crawl on my hands and knees. I said ‘God, if you let me live, I’ll never drink again.’ That evening, Jan. 29,1999, I was able to get up from the couch, walk into the kitchen and I never drank again,” adding “Prayer got me better.” 

For good measure, she stopped smoking that day, too.

Mary Rogers was born in Mena, Arkansas in 1938.

Ripe for the Picking

Blackberries, blueberries and stone fruit like peaches and plums are part of the summer's bounty.
Jill Munger’s favorite recipe for canned peaches is the result of an accident.

She was living off the grid and with pounds of the stone fruits in front of her, she needed an ascorbic acid to keep them from turning brown and reached for the only thing she had.

Off the Grid: The art of brewing pourover coffee

Living off grid means living simply. 

I don’t miss my microwave. I don’t miss my vacuum cleaner. I don’t miss a household full of electronic gadgets that are supposed to make life easier.

I do miss using a curling iron for my hair. I do miss ironing my clothes (I feel like I’m always wrinkled). And, I sometimes miss the convenience of a coffee maker.

Church Notebook: Taylor family taps Heavenís Connection with gospel songs

Can an animal suffer from PTSD?

During the fireworks my friend said her dog hid in the shower when she heard them. But it took me a couple of days to realize that Mini— my Tortie cat — was apparently more affected by them than I thought.

Kasia Kugay always knew she wanted to be a singer and a writer. 

But even though she attended a performing arts school as a kid in San Francisco, she was never selected for a solo part. The feedback she received caused her to shut down. Kugay said she wrote a lot of poetry and spoken word but wasn’t a performer. If she sang, she did it in private.

She said she was 17 when she realized that her voice had changed.
