Valentine’s Day is almost here, and there are a lot of wonderful local places where you can shop for that special Valentine’s Day gift. We chatted with some of the local shops to see what they had to offer. Some of the items needed to be ordered way ahead of time so for those make a note for next year, but there are many other wonderful things you still have time to go purchase for that special Valentine!

When the High School Musical movie came out in 2006 on the Disney Channel my 13-year-old daughter was obsessed with it, and I enjoyed it too! We even eventually talked her brother into watching it. Through the years we watched all three movies many times, and even now she and I are big fans of Zach Efron and Lucas Grabeel, two of the stars of the movies. So when we heard that the Selma Arts Center’s Teen theatre group was doing a production of the stage version, well of course we were going to be there.

Type of Juice That Can Assist Your Mental Health

by Sarah Miller


Enhanced brain health easily tops the list of the major benefits to be derived from juicing. This is because the body is intrinsically connected to the brain. As such, irrespective of how much people focus on their physical fitness, they can never achieve maximum health until they boost their mental wellbeing.
