  • For the third year, Woodsong, a traditional “walking” neighborhood off Village Road in Shallotte, is celebrating spring and the arts with the Woodsong Porch & Art Stroll from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 21.

    More than 20 local artists and artisans invited by Sunset River Marketplace in Calabash will be on hand to display and sell their work set up on porches of the Charleston-style homes in the community off Pender Road, showcasing art, pottery and jewelry.

    Under the direction of Tom Smicklas and Michael Stringer, the concert will feature favorites including "A Tribute to Rodgers and Hammerstein” and “Frank Sinatra in Concert” along with several Sousa marches.

The show is open to the public with free admission from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. during the week. More than $2,500 will be awarded for a variety of categories.

  • One of the most disturbing, embarrassing and often disgusting disorders a pet can develop is diarrhea.

    Runny stools can distress more than your pet’s tummy. Your pet becomes upset because it had an accident, often on a favorite rug or bedspread. You get agitated because you’ve got to clean up the mess. Many times, you feel helpless and don’t know what to do next. And, if your luck is like mine, this tends to happen on the weekend when most veterinary clinics are closed.
