A Hairy Situation

By Paige Tucker PHOTO: Sophia Bush, age 5 It’s a rite of passage for many children, cutting their own hair! It all too often happens before something important like, oh you know, family pictures or a portrait sitting. I have seen pictures and received several texts over the years of “new haircuts” that my friend’s children have given themselves. The best is when it’s a group text and several friends weigh in with a hair horror of their own. The trims are usually memorable and a few of them have made me laugh out loud, with the unintended bangs, choppy...

Cousins Book Club

By Karen Gordon VERY TIME @SayWhatScooter spends time with his cousin Jamil, they come up with a new “thing.” First, there was the boiled peanuts which they sold for a spell at the Saturday Market. Next, was a brief stint with slime. #CousinsPeanutsAndSlime has an interesting ring to it (not to be confused with Jones BBQ and Foot Massage).

Augusta is the Garden City, golf central, the birthplace of soul and the Silicon Valley of the south. For me, this is where I grew up and where I choose to call home. Augusta is home to my family and to an ever-expanding creative class and collaborative community and downtown is the epicenter of it all. Yes, downtown- the diamond in the rough. The place where...

By Paige Tucker Tibi gave us plenty of heart attacks over the years, but this time our hearts were broken. Tibi crossed the Rainbow Bridge on, of all days, the 4th of July.  Tibi, short for Trial Basis was our  “trial dog” for all of 12 hours before she became a full-fledged family member. I was anchoring a newscast back in 2010 when my husband Jack told me about this black Labrador he rescued off the side of the road. Jack saw a truck hit her, and the driver did not stop.  Jack was out of town but drove Tibi...
