The photo for this postcard of Beauvoir was taken between 1926 and 1940. It is believed but not certain that the fountain in front of the home was donated by Walter M. Lampton (1850-1930), whom the newspaper called "a millionaire philanthropist." This seems likely because from about 1910 until his death he was the old soldiers' best friend and Beauvoir's biggest benefactor.
DEAR ABBY: I am a 65-year-old widow and recently started dating a 66-year-old man. I really like him and enjoy his company. However, one thing about him drives me up a wall. He has long fingernails on both hands. He is neat and tidy and otherwise well groomed. I am quite sure he is not a coke user (which some have suggested could be the reason).
Over the course of many years, I have spent a lot of time in hospital waiting rooms, hoping for good news and, at the same time, dreading the bad. I can remember clearly moments of time suspended by a pounding fear resounding in my ears like a thunderous cannon firing relentlessly.
I homeschool my three children, ages are 8, 6, and 5. The older two have a very poor attitude about doing school, especially math, and the younger one is starting to pick up on it. Their poor attitudes make the lessons take longer and they complain and cry about finishing their assignments. I've tried sending them to their rooms until they have a better attitude, but that seems like more of a reward to them because they get to do nothing. They are not working independently yet so I still need to teach them the lessons, but I get so frustrated when they huff and puff and act like school is so hard. They are all working at or slightly above grade level so it isn't that they don't understand, they just don't want to do the work. We do school each morning for about 4 hours, and then they can play the rest of the day. How can I show them they need to have a good attitude about learning?
When you look carefully at the building that houses Handsboro Presbyterian Church, you will notice its detailed wood features and its craftsman design. The church was formed in 1877 and today is pastored by Bobby Tyson.
Dear Annie: In the past five years, I have attended 14 weddings (several were expensive destination weddings), hosted seven baby showers, four bridal luncheons, six wedding showers and purchased 36 presents for various friends and relatives.
DEAR ABBY: My 18-year-old daughter, a junior in high school, is still living at home. She has befriended a 51-year-old man at her first job (a burger place). We have told her that although she is kind to be friendly with him at work, we feel it's inappropriate to do things with him outside of work. She's now upset with us and claims we "don't understand," "nothing romantic is going on" and she thinks of him like a "second father."
GULFPORT -- Rock-N-Roll Sushi doesn't look like many other sushi restaurants. The giant portraits of Jimi Hendrix and Led Zeppelin make that apparent the moment you walk in through the door of the restaurant on 25th Avenue in downtown Gulfport, just south of the railroad tracks.
Amid a presidential campaign season that has seen increased anti-Muslim rhetoric, and in the wake of Islamic State-inspired attacks in California and abroad, a national Muslim-American organization is bringing its annual convention to Baltimore this weekend. It expects to draw tens of thousands for programs aimed at "dispelling destructive myths about the Islamic faith and about Muslim Americans."
