  • By Benita Peoples, County extension agent for family and consumer science
    Do you have a son or daughter who is college bound this fall? Prior to heading off to college, it is important that students have a basic understanding of money management skills.
    For many students, college may be the first time they have been responsible for managing their own money. Even if mom and dad are paying all of the bills, they will not be around to help their child make everyday spending decisions.

  • Many of us have gone through turbulent times in our marriage but by working together, communicating and compromising we are able to mend the hurts. Our vows should mean something, not just say so as to be married. Remember the wedding lasts 30 minutes but the marriage is forever.

    Last year in Jackson, Mississippi, a newspaper reported about a man whose wedding ring saved his life.

  • Today I have the heebie jeebies.
    I’ve been listening to a podcast (that’s like a radio program that you download from the Internet) about fear: Why are people afraid? How can they get rid of fear?
    The podcast began with a story about woman with Urbach-Wiethe disease, a rare condition that has three symptoms: a scratchy voice, raised dots around the eyes and absolutely no sense of fear.
    The part of her brain that registers fear is calcified. She can be happy, sad, angry, feel love and feel hate, but she can’t feel fear.
