Study proves dogs understand our words and intonation
“It’s not only what you say, it’s how you say it” is equally true for both humans and dogs, according to new research. Hungarian scientists have proven something most dog lovers, including me, took for granted: Our dogs understand our words and tones. This exciting study holds many valuable lessons for how we can better study, train, and interact with our beloved canine companions.

One of the most heartening things I’ve seen in the wake of Hurricane Matthew is the outpouring of assistance people are offering others in need. After the storm passed and the sun shone again Sunday, teams of residents gathered in the hardest-hit areas of the county to cut away fallen trees and lend a hand.

The LEDC sent the survey to 352 businesses in July in an effort to learn more about the business community, the hurdles business owners have faced and opportunities available and what is needed for the business environment to grow.
ASH — Today, Marc Mero is a professional wrestler and former WWE star, with fights against the likes of The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin under his belt, and another successful career as a motivational speaker.
But in the early 1960s, Mero lived as a poor kid in Buffalo, N.Y., with his divorced mother in an apartment, writing down his hopes and dreams in a notebook he kept in a broken desk in his room, including his desire to become a rookie of the year in pro sports as well as a published author.
Hurricane Matthew ripped through our county a couple weeks ago and with it came record-setting flood waters to inland areas and destruction to properties along the beach. Aside from the horrific damage Matthew caused, folks who suffered minor damage or none at all began to wonder how the storm would affect the fishing. Before the storm, fishing was in full swing with fish biting from the surf to the Gulf Stream. However, once Matthew made its presence upon the Carolina coast, our fantastic fall fishery came to a screeching halt.
