• Southern Dressing....New York Style

    I remember when I first picked up my life and made the great migration from New York City to South Mississippi. I packed up my apartment and headed into unknown (but exciting) territory. I had never been to Mississippi and boy, did I have a lot to learn. One thing that I discovered very quickly – humidity. I had no use for my dozens of coats or collection of cashmere sweaters and snow boots that I had curated through the years working in the fashion industry. Don't get me wrong - I was happy to trade in the snow and the slush for fun in the sun.

  • ACS men’s movement sheds some color on breast cancer

    The American Cancer Society is hoping that Pine Belt men will help them “Harness the Power of Pink.”

    The ACS is bringing the Real Men War Pink fundraiser, which has been done across the country, to the Greater Hub City area.

    According to Carla Kyzar, ACS senior community manager, 25 men from all walks of life are being recruited to raise funds for the fight against breast cancer, the most common cancer diagnosed in women, and second only to lung cancer.

  • Piney Woods Picnic - Music To Your Ears

    The Piney Woods Picnic, still in its infancy, but growing rapidly each year, was established to create awareness for preservation of the Bouie and Leaf rivers, and the American music deeply rooted in the region right through the “birthplace of rock ‘n’ roll.”

  • Band takes its name from Walt Whitman poem

    When Americana springs to mind, one thinks about those events and ideas that are uniquely American. However, that can be a broad stroke of the pen. Based on the history of this nation, you would think that the songs themselves (not necessarily just their instrumentation) would encourage both examination and conclusion.

  • Prohibition-era fun comes to life

    It’s not always easy to speak. For children at the DuBard School for Language Disorders, oral and/or written communication does not come naturally. Even some of the simplest sounds and words can be a challenge to master. But there is hope. Through the full-time enrollment program and outclient therapy services, the DuBard School has proven successful in helping thousands of children learn to communicate effectively. However, like the adage says, it takes a village.

  • Putting the pieces together

    The transom above Kyle Baughman’s bedroom door is a stained glass sunrise of his own creation. “That way I’ll get a sunrise every day, no matter what time I wake up,” said the artist. It’s that sunny happy feeling that helps Baughman create – whether it’s a beautiful stained glass piece, music, scenes in a movie or doing hard labor.

    The Hattiesburger is a jack of all trades and he likes it that way, dabbling in a lot, but not tied down by any.

    These days, Hub City Stained Glass is a passion he’s designing and putting together, one colorful piece at a time.

     

  • Putting fun back into learning, playing music

    Learning is not fun. Nine times out of 10, the reason people quit playing an instrument is simply because they’re not having fun. Whether it’s because the songs they’re learning are boring, or because they’re only exposed to theory, unfortunately, many more people attempt to learn an instrument than those who successfully do.

    Some people, specifically husband and wife team Justin and Amie Nunez, are trying to change that.
