Dealing with kids during times of tragedy

Devon Morrison’s death touched an entire community. It wouldn’t be uncommon for area children to struggle either from grief over missing a friend or fear about what might have happened.

More no-parking signs to be placed in Greenville

More no-parking signs are going to be placed throughout Greenville, making roads more accessible and safe. During Tuesday night’s meeting, the Greenville City Council approved multiple items on the agenda regarding parking within the city. Traffic-control orders establishing no-parking signs were approved for some streets after the city received complaints.

JULIE STAFFORD: It’s not whether you win or lose …

Yesterday I went to my second middle school track meet ever. I don’t remember track being an option when I was in seventh or eighth grade, but am so grateful it’s available for my kids today. I, of course, am my son’s biggest fan, paying close attention to his events and cheering loudly so he can hear. But it’s the last Greenville girl to cross the finish line in the 3200 meter – or two mile – that I’m silently cheering loudest for. That’s because I was that girl.

JULIE STAFFORD: Conscious eating makes a lot of sense

I’ve been debating with myself for years about whether I want to become a vegetarian — again. And news as of late is pushing me in that direction. There’s the whole issue of the pink slime guck that’s added to beef, recent news of mad cow’s arrival in this country and my forever struggle over what animals go through to get from field to table. Not that I have a problem with other folks enjoying meat. It’s just a personal position and preference.

JULIE STAFFORD: Reconnecting

One of the cool things about Facebook and then moving back to your hometown is that you get to reconnect with folks you haven’t seen or heard from in years — 26 years, to be exact.

JULIE STAFFORD: The local touch goes a long way

I haven’t always been a “buy locally” consumer. After all, those colorful, well-organized catalogs that come in the mail from big box companies are enticing. And it’s so easy to Google the products you need from the comfort of your home and find a great bargain. But after living in Greenville for three months and working the past couple of weeks with a team of locally based businesses to remodel a house, I am fully on board to shop and do business close to home.
