  • Born in Italy in 1896, Caesar Cardini emigrated to the U.S. after World War I. He lived in San Diego, but operated a restaurant in Tijuana, Mexico, to circumvent Prohibition. While at this restaurant, Cardini made a salad from scratch using leftover ingredients for a gathering of hungry dignitaries. The salad, made with all its tableside showmanship by waiters, became a sensation.

  • Original rock ‘n’ roll hit-makers The Coasters are coasting into Odell Williamson Auditorium as the next BCCOWA Performing Arts Series show at 7 p.m. this Saturday, Nov. 18, at the Brunswick Community College venue.

    The Original Coasters took off on the musical fast-track a whopping 62 years ago, starting in October 1955 when two members of The Robins group, Carl Gardner and Bobby Nunn, ventured cross-country from the West to East coast to sign up with Atlantic Records, earning their new Coasters moniker.

  • A variety of vendors rev up the fourth annual Holiday Market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 18, in Mulberry Park at 123 Mulberry St. in Shallotte.

    More than 50 vendors will offer local winter farm vegetables and fresh eggs, homemade baked goods (bread, pies, cakes) and artisan items — handmade jewelry, goat's milk soap, crocheted gifts, handmade pottery and painted snowman gourds.

    In the past few weeks we have been discussing the basic tenants of integrated pest management (IPM) and the cultural, mechanical and biological tools you have available to help control garden pests.

    Is your primary relationship a constant struggle? Is it more about who “wins?”

    If so, you may be locked into a power struggle, due to unresolved anger. 

    Not that you scripted any of this. It’s an all too common pattern that sneaks up on couples. Before you know it, hurt feelings drag into long term frustrations that can be damaging — or even fatal — to a relationship. 

  • When I make a beef stew, the first step is batch-searing pieces of chunked beef, usually splattering grease all over my stovetop. It’s messy, but a necessary step when making stew — always brown the meat!

  • It was 2016, the year Richard Gere engaged with the invisibility of homelessness. For him, it was time out of mind. For the homeless ones, it remains enigmatic, a lengthy duration of time, longer than is readily remembered. It is also deeply embedded in a memory bank which gains interest with each passing moment. Homelessness is not a condition; nor is it a learned lifestyle. It is not so much a choice as an accepted reality. It is not desirable or desired yet it persists. Homelessness is truly time out of mind as much as it is a mind out of time.

  • I’ll let you in on a secret: I don’t care for artificial plants. I’ve always found posing plastic plants around a home or office a sign of apathetic artificiality and downright dullness. If I can’t be outdoors, I long to be surrounded by nature where I live and work: vibrant, living, breathing, organic, with a heaping dose of fur and whiskers.

  • Pastor Stephen Nobles and the Sunshine Sisters of New Britton Baptist Church in Ash honor the 84th birthday of Ralph King, born Nov. 5, 1933.
