Don’t judge a person by their dirty shirt

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column) One of my reader’s comments said it perfectly: “I think that the “mean coaches” need to act in a professional manner and adjust their coaching methods to the people they are coaching.” I do have to say, in my tennis pro’s defense, ...

Do coaches need to calm down?

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column) I ventured over to a second-hand store that sells used clothes on consignment and needless to say, I went home with a “new” jacket, skirt, earrings and a matching necklace. And I don’t care what anyone thinks. Score! Just saying ... Coach ...

Consignment shopping: Fashion for the frugal

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column) Oddly enough, I did not get a lot of response to last week’s column. I do like the chemical-free aspect of raising your own food and knowing where it actually comes from, so I’m not against it, I just don’t like the ...

Pasture Pete on my plate to eat

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column) A dietician told me that it is the contents of a healthy home-cooked meal that makes the difference. Although I lived through the fast-food phase, I can’t really say I’m all that healthy. Maybe there’s more to this that I need to ...

Home-cooked meals aren’t what they used to be

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column) OK, I have to say that I too think I was harsh in last week’s column. I could not get my point across today if I wasn’t, and you know that’s how people talk. I personally think that if you put me ...

What part of ‘No onions’ didn’t you understand?

Untitled document (Last week's response)It seems as though when naming a town, someone simply looked around and whatever they saw, became the name. This would explain Beavercreek, Deer Park or Rocky River. Others were named after people — Boardman was founded by Elijah Boardman, Austintown was apparently named after Judge ...

Should you judge a girl by her car?

Untitled document (In response to last week’s column) Most people today want every penny to count, so if you really need help with the scrubbing and disinfecting of the house (and you can afford this luxury), it only makes sense to have your home somewhat picked up before the cleaning ...

Pick up your room, the cleaning lady’s coming

When it comes to choosing where to sit at a movie theatre, there’s a balancing act that has to be performed. You plunked down your hard-earned cash and deserve to sit wherever you like, but so did everyone else and they deserve to watch the movie without your big head in their way. While there are no rules handed out with your ticket, there are unwritten rules we should all follow: whenever possible, leave two or three seats between you and the nearest person, be aware of whether you’re blocking someone else’s view, and turn off the cell phone. Can’t the world can’t survive without us for 90 minutes? Just saying…

Make your New Year’s resolution count this year

That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.” With a smile from “sticky outie” ear to ear, Charlie picks up his puny Christmas tree and skips happily home, believing now that Christmas is not about perfect performances, materialistic gifts, or brand-name boots. It has a much deeper meaning than any of that. (Although I really do like the boots — “UGHHH”!) I hope a lot of you were able to restrain from overspending and had a beautiful holiday with your families. I had a great Christmas, but was somewhat unsuccessful in taking my own advice. It’s all a work in progress. Just saying…

Don’t panic: You bought enough gifts

As Christmas gets closer, we start to panic. We start to think: “Do I have enough presents?” ”Are all the piles even?” “Will everyone be happy?” “Did I forget anyone?”
