Adele Elliott: Lent

Posted 2/20/2010 in Columns

I am packing up my Mardi Gras décor, storing ornaments and masks and beads in a well-marked box until next year. It is with great reluctance that I put these things out of sight. Chris and I never get tired of the fleur de lis, or that weird color combination of purple, green and gold.

 

 

Shannon Bardwell: Leaping lizards

Posted 2/20/2010 in Columns

Sometimes you can’t go to the river to fish. It’s too high or too muddy or too cold; it’s too late or too something. That’s when Sam and I started fishing in the prairie pond. I had to learn a different kind of fishing because there’s no crappie in the prairie pond.

 

 

David Creel: The little black dress

Posted 2/20/2010 in Columns

Think Audrey Hepburn in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” as the minx becomes the young lover. Think Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, especially the pre-Onassis period. Think Jane Wyman descending the stairs of Falcon Crest as the grand dame of 1980s television or your own mother preparing for a country club luncheon with the girls.

Shannon Bardwell: To catch an angler

Posted 2/14/2010 in Columns

David Creel: Saving and beauty can go hand in hand

Posted 2/9/2010 in Columns

If green is truly the new black, and since everyone from my 71-year-old mama to my 17-year-old niece begins ands ends every conversation talking about saving money, then 2010 could very well be the year for smart shopping. And that’s nothing to blush about.

 

 

David Creel: Every day can be a good hair day

Posted 2/9/2010 in Columns

With hundreds, if not thousands, of hairstylists chiseling, combing and coiffing the locks of ladies from the small town barber shops and beauty parlors to the swankiest of “citified” salons and image studios, I ask myself the same question that lots of first-time clients have asked me. Underwhelmed or downright displeased with their last cut, they sit in a new stylist’s chair and ask: “Why can’t I get a good haircut?”

 

 

Rob Hardy: A history of service

Posted 2/9/2010 in Columns
