table of CONTENTS

I've learned a lot from my dad. But there's still a lot left to learn. He's who taught me to love football, but I have some work to do when it comes to loving people as much as he does. He taught me the importance of spending money wisely, but I could learn a thing or two about how to better spend my time. He taught me how to hit a softball, but I still haven't figured out exactly how to cope with all the curve balls life throws at me. Although I admit I'm a work in progress, I wouldn't be who I am today without the valuable life lessons he's offered along the way. While just one day in June is set aside to celebrate our daddies, I hope mine knows how much I love and appreciate him every day of the year. This month also brings with it the first official day of sumLinsay and her husband, Matthew mer, but that doesn't mean lazy days are ahead for cover mom Laura Lanier. As local business owners, a weeklong summer getaway isn't practical for Laura and her husband, Joe, but they still find ways to make time to spend together with their two sons, 6-year-old Joe and 18-month-old Ed — and that often includes a quick trip to the beach or a day at the pool. To read more about how Laura and her family make the most of the summer months, turn to page 18. Our Go Girl this month is Lori Wiggins, a woman who, despite a frightening diagnosis, has dedicated much of her time to helping others. Most recently, she served as the 2017 co-chair for Relay for Life of Bulloch County, which has raised more than $120,000. Read more about the difference Lori is making in the community on page 4. Also in this issue, Erinn Cowart offers her expert tips on how to grow healthy, beautiful roses (page 10), and Azure Rountree shares her recipe for mouth-watering Sweet & Sticky BBQ Chicken Drumsticks (page 7). Plus, find everything you need to know about choosing the perfect summer camp for your child on page 12. Here's to fathers, fresh new seasons and plenty of fun in the sun! ADVERTISING DIRECTOR

of the month: Lori Wiggins

Ashlee Hooks Corbin

"It got to where I would choke on food and even water," she said. "He (Dr. Castell) checked me out and said I needed to see a surgeon. Things were getting worse with the acid in my system." In May 2010, she underwent surgery to have her esophagus reattached to her stomach, and the doctors decided she'd need checkups every six months to monitor her condition. Now, seven years later, she remains in the pre-cancerous stage. "I pray every day that it never changes," she said. Lori's esophagus is weakened, and she occasionally has to go in for surgery to have it dilated because it collapses due to the high levels of acid. She has a "silent type of acid reflux," and sometimes it only takes one cough for her esophagus to begin to close. However, Lori, who is an administrative assistant in Georgia Southern University's Department of Teaching and Learning, has not allowed her condition to slow her down. Most recently, she served as the 2017 co-chair for Relay for Life of Bulloch County. "Chris Wiggins, Kay Nay and I started meeting August 2016 to start planning out what we wanted the theme of this year's Relay for Life to be and what different fundraisers we wanted to do," she said. Once a month leading up to the event's kick-off in November, they met with corporate sponsors and different groups from GS, and they planned all the aspects of the relay — the survivor's dinner, Give Back Night and the survivor's cookout. At press time, they had raised $120,000, with more coming in. "I do all that I can for Relay for Life, not for myself, but for others," she said. "This was the first Relay for Life that I experienced as a grandmother, and that feeling — the feeling of seeing my granddaughter brought into this world and wanting her to have

the best life one can offer — that feeling drives me. "The American Cancer Society's slogan of #CelebratingMoreBirthdays says it all — I want others to have the chance to celebrate more birthdays and more amazing years of their lives." Lori credits her family, friends and coworkers for the support they've offered since her diagnosis. Her husband has been there through it all, and her friend Gail Nesmith has been

a tremendous help and support, as has her "family" in the Teaching and Learning Department at GS. "My advice for people who are newly diagnosed is that you are not alone," she said. "There will be days when you want to cry and ask 'Why me,' but always remember that there is someone there to cry with you and to talk to. Lean on your friends and family because they will always be there for you. And remember to put things in God's hands."

arrett's esophagus pre-cancer is a complication of gastroesophageal reflux disease, or GERD. According to WebMD, the condition causes the normal tissue that lines the esophagus to become tissue that more closely resembles the lining of the intestines. In Lori Wiggins' case, it was not diagnosed for almost five years. Lori, 47, is originally from Alma, Georgia, and has lived in Statesboro for the last 12 years. She is married to David Wiggins and has one daughter, Crissy Meeks. Crissy is married to Brandon Meeks, and the couple lives in Nicholls, Georgia, with their 3 ½-month-old baby, Paisley Kate. In 2004, Lori began to suffer from throat trouble and would cough until she lost her voice. She went to several doctors, who all had different diagnoses. She was told that she had laryngitis, a throat infection, even that she'd somehow untaught herself to talk! In September 2009, she went to a gastroenterologist and had tests done to find out what was causing her trouble with swallowing. Dr. Scott Murray asked her to come back in for her test results. "He told me that he thought I had Barrett's esophagus pre-cancer," she said. "He was referring me to a doctor in South Carolina who works with patients with this on a daily basis. I was in shock. All I could think about was 'Why me?' How was I going to tell my husband and my daughter?" In December 2009, she traveled to the Medical University of South Carolina for her first visit with Dr. Donald Castell, who confirmed that she had Barrett's esophagus pre-cancer and told her that the plan was to monitor her esophagus to make sure it didn't turn into full-blown cancer. In January 2010, Lori began having more issues with her esophagus.

How to Maintain Healthy Relationships

moments | June 2017 | www.statesboromoments.com

R

elationships and networking play a large role in our lives and often can contribute to our levels of stress, happiness and overall feelings of life satisfaction. How we choose to connect with others can really aid or even hinder our overall well-being as well as our personal and professional success. Healthy relationships and networking are essential, as they highly influence how we view ourselves and how we view and interact with others. Every connection is different. However, the end result should always produce growth, satisfaction and happiness for both parties involved. When seeking a healthy connection, remember that it takes participation and a willingness from both individuals. Relationships, both personal and professional, always require you to be willing to give of yourself. For example, if you desire consistency, then be sure you are providing consistency.

Ty Johnson Ty's Counselor Corner

This is not to suggest that relationships won't have conflict — but there's a difference between good and bad conflict. Good conflict produces opportunities for growth and positive change; bad conflict produces resentment and feelings of inadequacy. If you are seeking to better the relationships and bonds in your life, the following are a few things to try: • Build, explore and establish healthy professional and personal circles.

• Follow up. • Get involved! For example, attend professional events in the community. • Show appreciation. • Find a common goal and work toward that goal together. • Maximize each other's strengths and use those strengths to produce a profitable outcome. • Accept and respect each other's differences. • Develop trust and honesty. • Agree to disagree and move on. • Know your own self-worth. • Clarify your messages, and discuss one thing at a time. Never communicate serious matters via text or email. • Practice serving each other. • Spend quality time together. Turn

V.I.P Nails

off distracting devices! • Have some time apart, so when you reconnect, you have great things to talk about. • Timing counts! Knowing the right time to share your thoughts and feelings is essential for effective communication. • Forgive quickly. The longer you hold on to a grudge, the harder it is to let it go. • Laugh together often.

Grill chicken for around 12 to 20 minutes on one side, then turn and grill for another 12 to 20 minutes. Grilling time will depend on what type of grill you have. Make sure that the juices run clear when pierced to know that the chicken is fully cooked. When grilling is done, remove chicken and baste with the second bowl of sauce, then serve.

on't let the thorns scare you away! Growing healthy, full roses at home might seem a little unattainable at first, but trust me, it's truly so much fun if you learn a few basic tips on how to care for them. First off, it's important to note that all roses need at least six hours of direct sunlight to really thrive. Roses love the sun across the board, although some cultivars can tolerate a little more shade if necessary. After selecting the right location and placing your bush in the ground, make sure to water thoroughly so that the root ball doesn't dry out and stress the plant. Now let's chat about a few cultivars that are super easy to grow and maintain. Plus, you can find these varieties right in the Statesboro area at your local nursery. Knock Out roses have been called "the best-known landscape rose" by Better Homes and Gardens Magazine, and they're exactly right! Chances are good that you've seen these beautiful, vibrant blooms around businesses or homes as you go about your day, and the reason they are so well loved is because they are so low maintenance. Talk about a bang for your buck! Knock Out roses continually bring forth bright cherry roses all season long, with very little attention or care. They are selfcleaning, which means that the spent roses will fall away themselves, so you don't have to deadhead them — unless you want to. They're so easy to grow, easy to find, drought and heat tolerant, disease resistant and beautiful to boot! If you're looking for a layering rose for your landscapes that won't grow up too tall and hide other foundation plants, you'll probably fall in love with Drift roses, whose graceful, small shape will not overpower a space. These roses offer non-stop blooms

Erinn Cowart The Art of Lawncare

and are disease resistant, and they doesn't have large thorns like many other rose varieties. Drifts can also be used as groundcovers and can make a stunning statement when planted in swaths. Like so many other roses, choose well-drained soil and a sunny spot for these little lovelies. And now, what I've been waiting for! I'm so excited to share with you these new cultivars of roses that I just discovered. Maybe you already knew about them, but in case you didn't, perhaps you'll be as excited as I am! Rose growers have come out with four varieties that are named after characters of the popular TV show "Downton Abbey," and they are called Anna's Promise, which grows peach blooms; Violet's Pride, with light lavender roses; Pretty Lady Rose, whose blooms are bright fushia; and Edith's Darling, with delicate yellow roses. These cultivars have a growing habit similar to most rose bushes except for Drift roses, and they are excellent for cutting once the flowers mature. So if you're feeling a little adventurous, or maybe you need a hardy, reliable perennial that requires little attention, roses may be the next great adventure for you. Happy growing! Erinn is part of the professional team at Ninja Lawns who seek to serve the Statesboro community and make a positive difference in the world around them.

What to Look for in a Summer Camp for Your Child

moments | June 2017 | www.statesboromoments.com

S

ummer camp can be one of the most rewarding, unforgettable experiences in a child's life. As a parent, no doubt you understand the importance of keeping your child active and busy during the summer. With school ending, it is now time to start searching for the best camp for your child to keep their minds energized. Camp provides children with a community of caring mentors who provide experiential education that leads to self-respect and appreciation for life. All the outcomes — making friendships, overcoming challenges, staying healthy and building character — prepare them for bigger, brighter lives down the road. In addition, many important life skills are learned at camp. Finding the best fit for your child may seem overwhelming. There are so many options for the summer, including overnight programs, day programs, weeklong programs and programs that run throughout the entire summer. Researching your top picks will assure that you are leaving your child in the right hands and that your child is safe for the entire summer. The main goal of any wellrun camp program is to make sure children have the time of their lives. Summer camp is a much-needed break from the academic year where creativity, adventure, thrills, smiles and good times are the priority.

Summer Camp Opportunities To try new things. Camp pushes children out of their comfort zones and exposes them to new activities and experiences with which they may not be familiar. Campers get the opportunity to try out different things and discover new hobbies or passions. By exploring various types of activities, children have a greater chance of finding something at which they excel or that makes them happy. Camp lets kids roam and play in a way they rarely do at their own homes. It takes them away from computers, TVs and other high-tech time-suckers, exchanging them for conversation, fun and games in a natural setting.

and become resilient and independent. Camp allows a safe place to take these steps.

Michelle Smith Lank Quality Child Care

To develop social skills. Camp teaches children to communicate, to work together as part of a team and to be leaders. Leadership is developed by asking campers to fulfill responsibilities that may not be expected of them elsewhere, while sharing resources and attention helps foster teamwork and the desire to participate. To face challenges and learn the value of hard work. Because children feel safe at camp, they are comfortable taking healthy risks, setting personal goals and realizing their dreams. At camp, children learn the importance of working hard to accomplish what they want and to never give up, all in a low-stress setting. To build character. On top of making new friends, campers also develop an appreciation for the qualities required to cultivate and strengthen these relationships. Camp provides children with the core values of strong, moral individuals by teaching them about ethics, honesty, caring, respect and responsibility. Parents frequently report that after camp, their children are more kind, understand the importance of giving, are more equipped to stand up for what they know is right and are willing to be more responsible. To foster independence. At camp, children learn the responsibility of making their own decisions with a safety net of insightful counselors and staff in a safe environment. Campers can risk finding out what works and what doesn't, while discovering new facets of themselves. The camp environment provides peer support that allows children to quickly overcome their need for constant parental dependency. Children must learn to separate from their families

How to Choose Hundreds of Georgia summer camps may be operating without state approval. Experts say that when choosing a day camp, parents should ask lots of questions about what types of safety, training and transportation a camp uses. Does the camp conduct criminal background checks on all staff and volunteers that will come into contact with your child(ren)? The best camps always have someone you can talk to before, during or after camp, or will find someone to return your call. Parents should check the Department of Early Care and Learning's website at www. decal.ga.gov to see if a program has a valid license or has been granted an exemption from the state. What should you look for? While there are specific qualities that make some camps better for certain children than others — a kid who loves art, for instance, might not be a good fit at a place that's all about horses — keep an eye out for these key things, according to the American Camp Association: • A history. There are great new camps out there. But some experts — and families — believe that operating a camp for decades, especially with the same staff, does mean something. In today's world, a camp simply couldn't stay in business for generations if it were unsafe or poorly run. • A philosophy. Does it focus on sports? Arts? Leadership? How is this philosophy integrated into its programs? • An emphasis on creating community. Good camps think about how they place kids together to create the most inclusive experience for all. Another hallmark of community: a scholarship program. • A well-trained staff, in adequate numbers for a low campers-to-staffers ratio (about 10 to 1 for kids ages 8 to 14). The staff should be background-checked, too, with references, an interview and a criminal-records search.

• An element of choice. Your child will feel more independent if he can choose some activities. • A communications plan for letting parents know about upcoming events and for notifying them if a child becomes sick or injured. They also should have a consistent policy on camper phone use. Do a background check. You probably assume that all children's summer camps must meet state standards. The surprising truth? States' oversight is spotty at best. Many day camps are not approved by the state of Georgia. Ask camps if they're accredited by DECAL, Quality Rated, the National Association for the Education of Young Children or the American Camp Association, which conducts on-site visits and reviews programs, background checks, facilities and hiring and safety policies. Only the most professionally run camps qualify. If a camp lacks an accreditation nod, it still may be a high-quality program, but you'll need to ask more questions. Ask about additional fees and expenses. Expect one camp's base fee to differ from another's in terms of what is covered. Ask the director for a complete list of additional charges that you will have to pay on top of the base fee. Additionally, ask if your child will need cash on hand for onsite canteens or off-site excursions. Extra fees may include clothing and or equipment, insurance, meals or transportation. Kid's World Learning Center is offering two different camps this summer. The first is a free Summer Transition Program for children who did not attend Georgia's pre-K program this school year and who will be attending kindergarten in the fall of 2017. The second is a STEAM summer camp for children ages 5 through 12 that includes nine weeks of activities in science, technology, engineering, arts and math. Call (912) 764-4298 for availability information. Michelle Smith Lank is the owner and director of Kid's World Learning Center, a three-star Quality Rated and National Association for the Education of Young Children accredited child care program in Statesboro.

FACTS ABOUT SCOLIOSIS

Scoliosis is prevalent, affecting about 3% of the population in the US. It is the most common spinal deformity. In the vast majority of cases, scoliosis has no identifiable cause. It usually starts between the ages of 10 to 15, though is is also possible to have scoliosis as an infant or to develop scoliosis as an adult. Scoliosis is diagnosed both males and females. Females are significantly more likely to have scoliosis curves that progress and need either bracing and/or surgery to reduce the curvature. In recent years, treatment for scoliosis has made significant advances. Both bracing and surgery are more effective and less invasive than in the past. Early diagnosis is important Diagnosing scoliosis in its early stages ensures the most options for treating the curvature and slowing or stopping the progression. Children’s bones are not yet fully hardened, so non-surgical treatments like bracing may be used to prevent progression of the curvature. In severe cases, bracing may also be useful in delaying the need for surgery until the child is older and his or her bones are more developed. In an effort to increase awareness of scoliosis, June has been declared the National Scoliosis Awareness Month in the US.

It is the most common spinal deformity. In the vast majority of cases, scoliosis has no identifiable cause—this is termed idiopathic scoliosis.

In severe cases, bracing may also be useful in delaying the need for surgery until the child is older and his or her bones are more developed. Scoliosis screenings Many students are given the Adam’s Forward Bend Test in school, typically when they are in 5th or 6th grade, to determine whether or not they may have scoliosis. However, many schools do not do these screenings, so it is advisable to make sure the screening is done as part of a child’s annual physical exam with the pediatrician.

Not-So-Lazy Days of Summer Lanier Family Makes the Most of Time Together

moments | June 2017 | www.statesboromoments.com

W

ith endless waves of encouragement and an ocean-sized amount of respect, shaded with an umbrella of perfected communication, the Lanier family swims into summer days with the same gusto they do every other day of the year. They have to. It's the only way Laura and Joe Lanier keep their head above water. Between the two of them, they own four businesses and work for a fifth, manage two online

Julie Lavender shopping websites, write one lifestyle blog and offer political consulting, all while raising two boys. Moments cover mom Laura Jarrett (Loftis) Lanier owns Sole and Dish boutiques and operates their accompanying websites. Her husband, Joe, is the owner of Rainbow Restoration, which provides water, flood and fire damage restoration, mold removal, duct and upholstery cleaning and more. He also works as a roofing contractor for Lanier Roofing and takes an active role at Locos restau-

rant, owned with his parents and two brothers. "We have a great partnership," said Laura of their almost 12-year marriage and busy lifestyle. "We each know where each other is coming from, and we want the other to be successful. "We're sympathetic to each other about our work schedules and needs. We know it's hard for couples who both own businesses," she said. "Joe and I are really good about working out Saturdays, because both of us work almost every Saturday."

One might work Saturday morning at the business while the other watches the kids, then switch off for the afternoon, vice versa the next weekend. That cooperation works beautifully, Laura said, adding, "Joe is a very involved dad." Boys Joe, a 6-year-old Bulloch Academy student, and 18-month-old Ed get plenty of time with mom and dad but also know that both parents have jobs outside the home. "We want the kids to have a healthy respect for work and recognize all the

for then-Gov. Sonny Purdue. She met Joe, who was working on a congressional campaign the same time she was, and the two continued dating after he moved back to Statesboro to work with the family business while she stayed in Atlanta. After the two married, Laura lived in Atlanta during the week and came to Statesboro on the weekends. Eventually, she decided to move to Statesboro full time to be with her husband. In 2007, she opened her first boutique. "I don't have a fashion background, but Joe was very encouraging," she said. "He comes from such an entrepreneurial family, and he was completely supportive." Later, she reciprocated the encouragement when Joe launched Rainbow Restoration. But Laura didn't completely give up her passion for politics after becoming a business owner. In 2013, she worked as a co-chair for then-candidate David Perdue's steering committee during his U.S. Senate campaign. Later that year, she signed on full time as events director, in charge of all

benefits that come with work — and there are many — but there are also plenty of times we turn off work completely and just have family time." Even though summer days are ahead, the Laniers won't be taking an extended vacation anywhere. "Taking a week off is not our reality," Laura said. "Joe gets a lot of emergency calls with Rainbow Restoration. He doesn't want to be more than an hour away." Still, they make the most of weekend getaways on the rare Saturdays both parents are off. The family takes advantage of weekend or even day trips to Tybee, and they enjoy mini staycations when the opportunity arises. "If there's a Saturday that all four of us are off and together, that's great with us," Laura said, adding that those rare treats are often enjoyed outside beside their pool. That love for the water combined with her experience as a boutique owner makes Laura an expert on summertime fashion. "One pieces are back — a very exciting trend!" she said. "Every woman I know is excited that one pieces are back in." She recommended women "think outside the box" when choosing a poolside cover-up: "a man's buttondown shirt; a kimono, not necessarily a pool one; a slouchy sweatshirt; a maxi dress." Laura said jumpsuits are also trending this summer. "It's easy, one-piece dressing," she said. "Every busy mom can appreciate that." Though many are long pants, most jumpsuits are fashioned of light and easy fabric to keep the wearer cool in the summer, and many are creatively designed with cropped legs or side slits for even more comfort. And perhaps her best summer fashion tip is this: "Don't forget your sunscreen!" Besides the commonality of running their own businesses, enjoying time in the sun and chasing after two boys, the Laniers share another passion: politics. In fact, politics is what brought the two together. Laura graduated with a political science degree from the University of Georgia in 2000 and immediately began work for the late Congressman Charlie Norwood, then later worked

fundraising events in Georgia. During that time, she also served as a campaign consultant for state Rep. Jan Tankersley and ran Heather Banks McNeal's successful campaign for Bulloch County clerk of court. After Perdue's victory in November 2014, Laura returned to her boutiques but continued to work as a political consultant. In 2016, she ran Michael

Muldrew's successful campaign for superior court judge, as well as Tankersley's successful re-election bid. Success seems to be synonymous with Laura and Joe, both professionally and personally. Encouragement, respect and communication are musts for smooth sailing — and perhaps an exceptional amount of drive and energy, too!

An Emoji for Everyone Deseret News It looks like we're getting new emojis, and they'll probably match any hairstyle. Jeremy Burge, the chief emoji officer for Emojipedia and member of Unicode's Emoji Subcommittee, tweeted out images of a slew of upcoming emojis, most of which feature a variety of hairstyles, according to BBC. The tweet includes screenshots of bald-headed, whitehaired and red-haired emojis. Burge also shared a document that outlined the changes. "Requests for representation of red hair in emoji have been ongoing, yet prove a challenge to address due to a number of competing implementation options," Burge said in the document.

"This is a proposal to provide for the representation of a red-head emoji, as well as naturally occurring hair colors, features and styles." These changes will please more than 21,000 people who signed a petition to bring redheaded emojis into the Unicode system, which creates and publishes the various emoji faces, BBC reported. Meanwhile, Google recently announced that it will redesign its blobby emojis, CNN Money reported. "Good news, Gmail, Hangouts and Android fans: Google is (finally) revamping its emoji lineup. They'll no longer look like mutant lemon gumdrops that spent too much time in the sun," CNN reported.

Connecting Through the Arts

A

Ashley Whittemore

that is often overlooked, but acting builds self-esteem and self-confidence, developing poise and learning ways to overcome anxieties. The performing arts also promote and develop certain skills and characteristics such as empathy and compassion for others. The creativity involved in performing arts extends to emotional creativity and can open children to new ways of seeing the world. On May 29, the Painting with Masters art camp will teach campers how to transform something old into something new. Participants will learn the value of self-discipline and reuse supplies as they create their own unique piece of art décor from something that some may have considered to be trash. Campers are encouraged to bring their own worn items to camp to repurpose as a functional work of art. From broken chairs to cracked windows, nothing is off limits! "I love taking my little boy to the holiday art workshops that are offered at the Averitt Center," Statesboro resident Kelly McAfee said. "As a toddler, he naturally loves getting dirty, so getting to play while making

something that Mommy can keep forever is an opportunity I never want to miss." Other adult/youth summer camps offered at the Averitt include Group Suzuki Lessons (no experience or instrument required); Crochet Happy Hour; and Preserves, Jams and Chutneys. Looking for other ways to connect with your child through the arts? Here are some simple ways that art can bring parents and children closer together: • Make art together at home: Let your child know that art is not something that has to be done in school or at an arts center; creativity extends well beyond professional and educational establishments. Don't be afraid to experiment with unconventional materials, such as shaving cream or food coloring with bubbles! • Utilize holidays: Teach children the importance of history and culture

by creating special themed projects for each holiday your family celebrates. • Visit museums as a family: It does not have to be an art museum to have art, as the preservation of history is often documented in art. Your child can learn about important historical events, as well as the value of art, while admiring dinosaur fossils and Camp Lawton artifacts at the Georgia Southern Museum. Hands-on workshops and storytelling programs are also offered at most museums to further expand your child's creativity. Encourage your child's participation in the arts and play a vital role in the integration of imagination and creativity in your child's education.

parent's worst nightmare is having a child that is bored during the summer. But this grueling time of boredom is when parents can discover what truly interests their child. With summer vacation around the corner, it is time to sign them up for activities, clubs and camps to keep their brains ticking with creativity and their bodies active. This summer, for the first time in Averitt Center history, summer art camps are being offered for parents and their children — both adults and youth — to explore their creative abilities and learn together. Parents have this new opportunity to spend quality time with their child and make lasting memories. The Averitt Center wants to be a part of those moments by offering endless opportunities to keep you and your child entertained. For aspiring actors, Averitt Center Youth Theater Director Bethany DeZelle offers the Fundamentals of Acting for the Camera camp, July 17–21. For parents and adults who have always wanted to experiment with acting, this class is for you! "There are so many adults who haven't tried any form of acting because they were afraid, and this is the least scary way for them to try something that they've always wanted to," she said. "In film, there is no live audience, so the fear of having a hundred people staring at you or the pressure of performing the perfect act because there are no retakes just isn't there — it's less-intimidating than live theater." Actors will study the beginning of drama in ancient Greece and the development of film acting. The different approaches to each technique and how to overcome the challenge of switching between stage and film acting will be explored in this new camp. "Acting for the camera is all about subtlety, so, for some, it's not as difficult as stage acting," DeZelle said. The performing arts help to develop positive social interaction and cooperation skills for impressionable youth. Conversing with adults in a mature manner is an important ability

Tomato Brodo with Tortellini

Tomato broth, or brodo, is extracted straight from the tomato. It makes a delicious liquid for cooking pasta, poaching fish, or making soups that can be served hot or cold. Plus, the work is mostly hands off, which makes for more time for summer fun. Pick large, ripe, juicy tomatoes for making brodo (If you see any of those weird purplish tomatoes at the Market, be sure to snatch them up!) and jazz it up with some basil and fresh corn.

3 large tomatoes from Market, preferably heirloom, cut into large pieces, plus 1 additional tomato, diced, for serving 1 clove garlic, from Market 1 cup basil leaves, from Market

1 tbsp lemon juice 9 oz tortellini Georgia Olive Oil from Market 1 cup shucked sweet Corn, from Market Salt and Pepper

Put cut-up three large tomatoes in food processor with the garlic, basil, and lemon juice. Pulse until ingredients are just chopped. Add a little salt to mixture wrap in a square of cheesecloth. Tie ends together, and hang from a wooden spoon suspended over a nonreactive bowl. Refrigerate overnight and allow liquid to drain. When ready to serve, boil tortellini according to package directions with corn. Warm tomato broth and season with salt and pepper to taste. Add cooked tortellini and corn to warmed broth. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil, chopped tomatoes, and additional basil.

ear Jill, I love to use coupons. The problem is that I don't know where to find them other that the ones that we get weekly. I use digital coupons and manufacturer coupons that come with the paper. I would love to use coupons the way you do. I think the fact that I can't find enough coupons and don't know how to combine them is my problem. I read your words and I think to myself, "How do I do that?" I don't know what you mean when you talk about "$2-off-two" coupons, and on top, you get money back. How? Thank you for educating us! —Paula G. You're already on the right track by looking for coupons both online and in the newspaper. Getting inserts from the newspaper is important to being a successful couponer. These coupons often have higher values than their digital counterparts, and the newspaper is one of the most economical ways to get a steady supply of coupons every week. The internet also is a great source of coupons. Coupons.com, SmartSource.com and RedPlum. com are three of the most popular and reputable websites for printing coupons, and they offer different coupons than you'll find in the paper. Typically, each coupon on these sites has a print limit of two. Take advantage of this! It's always nice to have multiple coupons on-hand to stock up during a sale. Your store also may have coupons available on its website or via a store app. There are two different kinds of

Jill Cataldo coupons. Manufacturer coupons are issued by the brand itself. A retailer, as the name indicates, issues store coupons. When a shopper redeems a manufacturer coupon, the store can send it in to receive reimbursement for that coupon's face value. A store coupon, however, grants the shopper a lower sale price within that specific store. This is the reason a shopper can combine a store coupon with a manufacturer coupon — what shoppers call "stacking" coupons. While a store and manufacturer coupon can be stacked together, it's important to remember that you cannot stack two manufacturer coupons together on the same item. This is a violation of a coupon's terms, and the register will not accept it. While many coupons are for one product, such as $1 off laundry detergent, others are valid on multiple products, such as $2 off two bottles of juice. In couponer shorthand, these coupons may be referred to as "$1-off-one" and $2-off-two." To use a $2-off-two, you'll have to buy two of the same item. A common question I often hear from new couponers is this: If I have two $2-off-2 coupons, can I use both of them on two items? The answer is no. To spend two $2-off-two coupons, you'll need to buy four items, because each coupon requires two qualifying items to scan correctly at the register. To save the most money, I like to pair high-value coupon offers with cash-back offers in the store. Both supermarkets and drugstores offer these sales. For example, a national pharmacy
