The clanging of horseshoes, the whoosh of a badminton racket, the clunk of a croquet mallet against the wooden ball. Do these unmistakable sounds bring back nostalgic memories for you?

Fish Nutrish: Louisiana Seafood Nutritional Values
One of the many reasons we’re lucky to live in South Louisiana is our access to fresh seafood. (If you’ve ever lived in a land-locked location, you know how awful it can taste after it’s been frozen and shipped over long distances.) Not only does it taste great, but it’s a low fat, high protein food source that also provides a lot of health benefits. For instance… Shrimp Four ounces of shrimp contains over 100% of the recommended daily amount of selenium, over 75% of vitamin B12, over 50% of phosphorous, and over 30% for choline, copper, and iodine. Oysters Oysters a good source of essential nutrients, including vitamins A, E, and C, zinc, iron, calcium, selenium, and vitamin B12. Fish Fish is filled with omega-3 fatty acids and vitamins such as D and B2. It’s also rich in calcium and phosphorus, and a great source of minerals, such as iron, zinc, iodine, magnesium, and potassium. Crawfish Mudbugs are high in B vitamins and minerals, such as calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc and phosphorous. If you’re looking for an excellent local source for seafood, look no further than K-Jenn’s Seafood & Po-Boys. Opening in Hammond in July, they’ll be offering fresh, […]
BE the Grill Master
You’ve got the grill, the tools, and the menu — now what? Here’s a list of grilling tips, courtesy of Food Network, to get you started on your way to becoming a true grillmaster — plus, a great rub recipe from Bobby Flay Start with a clean grill. Don’t move the food around. Don’t squeeze or flatten meats. Keep a spray bottle handy for flare-ups. Buy a meat thermometer. Avoid putting cold foods straight on the grill. Undercook foods, just slightly. (Expect food temp to rise about 5 degrees after leaving the grill) Rest all meat for five to 15 minutes after cooking. Don’t over-char to cook through meat with bones. Keep it simple when serving a crowd. (Managing numerous cook times for different proteins and veggies can get stressful) Bobby Flay’s Rib Rub Recipe In a small mixing bowl, combine one tablespoon of each of these ingredients: cumin paprika granulated garlic granulated onion chili powder brown sugar Add one teaspoon of the following: cayenne pepper black pepper white pepper Add 2 tablespoons of kosher salt, mix, then pack the rub onto your rack of ribs, and cook ‘em low and slow in the oven, grill, or smoker.
The Thrill of the Grill
Between the pool parties, outdoor entertaining, and the desire to ditch the hot, confining kitchen — summer is prime grilling season! And while seafood and vegetables are perfectly respectable options, nothing beats carnivorous cuisine. You could certainly head over to your nearby chain grocery store for a basic meat selection, but for those special occasions when you’re entertaining friends and family, here are some of Tangi’s specialty meat markets that are a cut above. Cutrer’s Meat Market & Slaughterhouse (Kentwood) Monday -Friday, 8am-5pm (closed for lunch 12-1); Saturday 8am-noon (985) 229-2478 White Tail Butcher Shop (Independence) Monday-Saturday 8am-6pm (985) 878-2022 Tangi Meats Wholesale and Retail Market (Hammond) Monday-Wednesday 9am-4pm; Thursday-Friday 9am-6pm (985) 386-3104 Galloway Meat Market (Robert) Monday-Saturday 9am-6pm; Sunday 9am-2pm (985) 520-5658
Brawny Blossoms: 8 Flowers That Can Take the Heat
Summertime means lots of outdoor entertaining. If you’re looking to pretty up your patio or beautify your backyard before your next barbecue or brunch soiree, there are two things you should keep in mind: Flowers add color and character to any outdoor space. Summer in Louisiana can be brutal for any living thing, let alone a delicate blossom! Ah, but not all blossoms are created equal. There are some rugged varieties of flowering plants that can stand up to our harsh temperatures and humidity. This list is courtesy of LSU AgCenter: Begonias Cockscomb, also known as Celosia Gomphrena Marigolds Periwinkles Wave petunias Zinnias Where can you find a great selection of plants, and advice on how to care for them?

Recipe: Popsicles for Pets
Peanut Butter Pet-sicles (courtesy of the Humane Society) Refreshing popsicles for pets can be made out of all kinds of things they normally eat, like treats or even watered-down wet food. This recipes calls for peanut butter, preferably unsalted and unsweetened. Be sure it doesn’t contain any kind of xylitol, which is toxic to dogs. Ingredients 1 cup peanut butter half a ripe banana, mashed water, as needed Instructions In a small mixing bowl, combine peanut butter with a little water or half a mashed banana. Line a cookie sheet with wax paper, or use Kong-style rubber toys that have a cavity you can fill. Spoon the mixture onto the tray just like you would cookie dough, or stuff it into the toys. Freeze the tray or toys for several hours or overnight. Serve and, voila! Instant chilly dogs and cool cats!
Summer Safety for Our Furry Friends
As summer approaches, we’re constantly made aware of all the seasonal precautions we need to take to protect ourselves and our family. We slather on the sunscreen, spray for mosquitos, practice water safety, and keep hydrated. But there are also a special set of hot weather guidelines for our beloved pets. The Humane Society suggests the following: Never leave your pets in a parked car. On an 85-degree day, the temperature inside a car with the windows opened slightly can reach 102 degrees within 10 minutes. After 30 minutes, it will reach 120 degrees. Watch the humidity. Animals pant to evaporate moisture from their lungs, which takes heat away from their body. If the humidity is too high, they are unable to cool themselves. Limit exercise on hot days. Adjust intensity and duration of exercise when it’s hot, and limit exercise to early morning or evening hours. Don’t rely on a fan. Pets respond differently to heat than humans do. (Dogs, for instance, sweat primarily through their feet.) And fans don’t cool off pets as effectively they do for people. Provide ample shade and water. Provide plenty of fresh, cold water, with ice when possible. Tree shade and tarps are […]

If you place any stock in what designers and industry magazines dictate, then you may want to update your wardrobe with some of the following items, which are being touted by InStyle Magazine at some of the hottest women’s fashion trends of the season. Printed Shorts. We’re talking bright and eye-catching, balanced with a relaxed and solid blouse. Peek-a-Boo Lace. Playful and feminine, you might’ve seen this flirty style on actress Eva Mendes. Leather Dresses. It seems like an odd choice for summer, but to balance it out, they suggest you keep your silhouette airy and colors light. Cropped Tops. If you’re bold and comfortable baring your midriff, this is a trend for you. Consider pairing it with an A-line skirt. Backless Dresses.

Brush Up on First Aid & CPR for Summer
Summer’s rising temperatures and increase in outdoor sports and activities can present problems on their own, but combine them, and you’ve got a whole new set of circumstances that could lead to illness and injury. According to WebMD, there are the top 7 summer hazards: Lawnmower injuries Boating accidents Dehydration Sunburn Picnic food poisoning Fireworks accidents Insect bites and stings There’s no need to hide indoors all season.

What are the ‘Dog Days of Summer’?
No doubt you’ve heard the phrase “Dog Days of Summer,” but what in the world does it mean? Apparently, the ancient Romans associated the hottest, most humid days of summer with the star Sirius, known as the Dog Star, which is the brightest star in the constellation Canis Major, Latin for “large dog.” Technically, this refers to July and August, but this is Louisiana. Every summer day is a hot, humid dog day in our book! As such, it seems like the perfect time to let our canine companions run a little wild with a trip to Zemurray Dog Park. Conveniently located in downtown Hammond, in the far southwest corner of Zemurray Park, this modest little doggie haven abides by the park’s hours, which are 8am-7pm daily. Water, trash barrels, and bag dispensers are provided, so dog owners are encouraged to pick up after their dogs. It also features a double-gate entry/exit to the large and small dog areas for the safety of both dogs and owners. For more information, visit www.hammond.org or call (985) 277-5900.
Playful Landscaping Ideas for Summer
It’s summertime, and we’re all anxious to get outside and play, right? If you’re limited on travel options, or a bit of a homebody, you’re in luck. Until recently, the only real options for creating a functional backyard space were basically limited to a pool, playground equipment, or an outdoor kitchen. Now, thanks to a new landscaping trend, there are all sorts of creative ideas for aesthetically pleasing, all-ages backyard play. Miniature Golf. A backyard putting green may be nothing new, but mini golf adds a fun twist to an old concept. The size and scope of the green depends on individual taste, space, and budget, but it retains one of the best benefits of a putting green — artificial grass creates a low maintenance zone that requires no pesky mowing or weeding. Giant Chessboards. Whether you repurpose an existing patio or create a board using pavers, what a fabulous, whimsical focal point this creates. Many online retailers offer giant chess pieces, with and without a roll-out mat, which adds a convenient element of portability. Corn Hole. People are not only creating specialized boards for this brilliantly simple bean-bag-throwing hobby, but their own backyard courts, as well. They can easily […]
Caring for Summer Skin
As you enjoy all of summer’s outdoor activities and, heaven forbid, sunbathing — don’t neglect your skin! Summer can be brutal on the epidermis, but you can take some simple steps to protect and soothe your delicate outer layer. Keep skin hydrated with moisturizers and revitalizing toner spritzes Exfoliate for smoother skin that more easily absorbs toners and moisturizers Drink plenty of water Apply — and reapply — sunscreen Wear big-brimmed hats for stylish sun protection Soothe over-exposed skin with soothing botanicals and cooling gels Repair and treat sun damage with skin-nourishing products Get suspicious moles checked by a dermatologist For a more personalized, one-on-one skincare consultation, and to get those suspicious spots evaluated, check out these three Tangi dermatology offices: Northshore Dermatology 1606 S Magnolia St, Hammond (985) 340-4198, northshorederm.com Benson Dermatology & Skin Cancer 180 N 5th St, Ponchatoula (985) 370-7546, www.bensonderm.com Dr. Rebecca Soine, Hammond Dermatology Center 15709 Professional Plaza, Hammond (985) 542-9333

Support Your Local Farmer’s Markets!
One of the greatest gifts nature gives us in the summertime is fresh produce. There’s no better time to eat healthy, and this time of year, there’s no excuse for not at least injecting some healthy food into your usual diet. Roadside stands and farmer’s markets are just teeming with beautiful options. Sure, the chain grocery stores benefit from the season, too, but now is the best time to support your local markets. And here’s why… It’s a great way to support to local farming families. The produce and goods are less likely to be full of pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, and genetic modification. It eliminates the need to irradiate, wax, or gas produce to keep it fresher longer in transit. It’s a lovely excuse to some fresh air, instead of being stuck in a grocery store. Here are some local farmer’s markets you might want to visit: Hammond Farmer’s Market Held every Saturday from 8am-noon in historic downtown Hammond, this year-round, open-air market features plants, locally grown produce, various prepared foods from local vendors, and unique arts & crafts. They also sometimes have special treats for kids, like craft projects or live animals for pictures and petting. 2 West Thomas Street […]
Hurricane Prep Checklist
Hurricane Season is officially here. Are you ready? Think like a boy scout: be prepared! Many items on the Red Cross’s checklist need your attention long before the actual watches or warnings are issued, so take some time to review it in advance. Before the storm: ❏ Be sure your homeowner’s insurance covers flooding associated with big storms! Talk to a local agent or visit the National Flood Insurance Program at www.FloodSmart.gov. ❏ Talk with members of your household and create an evacuation plan. ❏ Get a NOAA Weather Radio for critical information from the National Weather Service. ❏ Learn about your community’s hurricane response plan. Plan routes to local shelters, register family members with special medical needs, and make plans for your pets to be cared for. When the watches and warnings begin: ❏ Check your disaster supplies and replace or restock as needed. ❏ Bring in anything that can be picked up by the wind (bicycles, lawn furniture). ❏ Close windows, doors and hurricane shutters, or close and board up windows and doors with plywood. ❏ Turn the refrigerator and freezer to the coldest setting and keep them closed as much as possible so that food will last […]
Safeguarding Important Documents
After a hurricane, when you’re without power and you’re trying to assess the damage to your home or business… this is NOT the time to start searching for important documents! Now is the time to consider how best to safeguard vital info. To keep an online copy, you can either purchase a scanner or bring your documents to a local FedEx or Staples store so they can do the scanning. To protect the original documents, you can store them in a waterproof safe or use a safety deposit box at a local bank. What types of documents need protection? Personal: Birth and marriage certificates, divorce decrees, passports, diploma and military documents, Social Security card, and copies of driver’s license and credit cards. Home and property: Home deed, mortgage and closing statements; car titles; insurance policies and agent contact info; appraisal documents for valuables. Estate: Will, executor and estate planning paperwork, including names and phone numbers. Medical: Medicare or health insurance cards, prescription records, and doctor contact information. Financial: Stock and bond certificates; IRA or 401(k) account numbers; bank statements; and tax records, including W2s and important receipts.
When the Rubber Meets the Road
‘Tis the season to think about… tires. For real, and here’s why: Hurricane season kicks off this month. About 91% of summer travel happens in personal vehicles. Underinflated or worn tires greatly increase your risk of an accident. When it comes to hurricanes, we usually think about the supplies we’ll need to stock up on in the event of a power outage, but officials may call for an evacuation. And whether you have summer road trips planned out in advance, or you enjoy the occasional spontaneous exodus, preparation is key. The aforementioned scenarios beg one question: How are your tires? If you need your tires checked, balanced, repaired, or rotated — or if they’re beyond help, and you need new ones — Supreme Tires, located at 51501 Highway 51 in Tickfaw, has you covered. They stock an inventory of new tires from top name brands in all different sizes to accommodate sports cars, compact cars, sedans, SUVs, large and small trucks, commercial vans, and buses. They also offer a variety of fast, efficient tire services, working with any size vehicle from compact cars to 18-wheelers.

Before You Hit the Road This Summer
Let’s face it. The “lazy days of summer” can get pretty boring if you’re doing nothing but sitting around the house for the next couple of months. Raise your hand if you’re up for a road trip… but your current ride is a little past its prime. If it’s going to cost you more to get your vehicle travel-ready than it’s actually worth, it might be time to do a little car shopping! Luckily, we have a trustworthy, homegrown automotive group to satisfy your particular needs, whether that’s purchasing a new or pre-owned vehicle for yourself or a recent graduate who will be needing their own reliable transportation, or servicing your current vehicle.

Like the old saying goes, charity begins at home. If you’re looking to give back to your community, here’s a local group that could certainly use your support. Quad Vets is an outreach service of the Quad Area Community Action Agency, based in Hammond, whose programs and services are available to veterans living anywhere in Louisiana.

The Skinny on Summer Insurance
With those temperatures on the rise and school letting out, are you gearing up for a fun summer? Better check to make sure you’re properly insured, so you can actually relax and enjoy yourself. Pull out those policies or call your agent to be sure you’re fully covered on the following… POOL Backyard pools are great, but they can be dangerous and raise your liability risk. Regular homeowners insurance may not provide enough coverage for a pool, and some policies may even exclude pools. BOAT Home insurance or renters insurance may provide all the coverage you require, but you may need a separate marine policy to cover larger, faster boats and personal watercraft, like Jet Skis. CAR Before you accept the rental car company’s policy, check your auto policy and your credit card agreement. They may provide all the car rental coverage you need.
Tis the Season to Sell Your House
Ah, spring. When many people’s fancies turn to — real estate? It’s been a long-held notion that this time of year is the most ideal for selling one’s house. But, is that true? According to a 2015 study, it is. Researchers at Zillow.com found that homes listed in May sold, on average, around 18.5 days faster than other times. Furthermore, homes that sold in the first half of May were also purchased for about 1 percent more than the average listing, which translates to about $1,700. Weather is thought to play a role in this phenomenon, as more people shop for homes when conditions are pleasant. One more reason to love living in balmy South Louisiana! Helpful Tip: If you’re considering selling your home, Zillow.com has a handy “Best Time To List” tool to help pinpoint the optimal timeframe to put it on the market, based on nearby comparable homes and seasonal market conditions by zip code.

5 Summer Safety Tips
As you are well aware, summer is almost here! While, of course, that means tons of fun — it also means shifting gears to protect yourself and your family against possible seasonal hazards. The team of healthcare providers at Total Family Medical in Robert offers up these five tips to help ensure a fun and safe summer: Heat — Try to avoid midday heat, make sure everyone is drinking plenty of water, and never leave anyone, especially children or the elderly, in a closed car, even for a few minutes. Water — Never allow children near water unattended, and watch them constantly. A child can drown in a mere six inches of water. And always wear life jackets while boating. Sunburn — Be sure to reapply sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher every hour, and after swimming or excessive sweating. Sunburns not only hurt, but they raise your risk of skin cancer. Mosquitoes — Mosquito bites are certainly annoying, but they can also transmit illnesses. Drain standing water around your yard, and be sure to wear insect repellant or long sleeves/pants (if you can handle it) especially at dusk and dawn, when they’re most active. Poison Ivy — […]
Pamper Mom with a Spa Day
Mother’s Day is May 14, and we’re going to let you in on a little secret. The vast majority of moms are so caught up in raising kids, running the household, and worrying about everyone else’s well-being (and many are trying to earn a paycheck, on top of everything else) that they just don’t get around to pampering themselves. Flowers and brunch are certainly a lovely way to celebrate Mother’s Day, but why not treat her to a little R&R this year? A gift card to a local full-service spa is like a magical passport to help her escape the daily grind. The beauty of this gift is, you can choose whatever price point you can handle, and mom can choose whatever service strikes her fancy.

Refreshing Watermelon Margarita Recipe
If you prefer a DIY celebration in the comfort of your own home, may we suggest a watermelon margarita? Pick up the popular seasonal fruit at any market or roadside stand to elevate an otherwise standard cocktail by adding freshness and a lovely pink hue. Ingredients 1/2 cup sugar 1/2 cup water 3 wide strips of orange zest 2 cups watermelon cubes 1/4 cup fresh lime juice 3/4 cup white or silver tequila Lime wedges Directions Bring sugar, water, and orange zest to a boil in a small saucepan. Reduce to a simmer and cook until sugar dissolves. Let syrup cool in a bowl. In a blender, puree watermelon cubes until smooth, then strain into a pitcher, yielding about 1 cup juice. Stir in syrup, lime juice, and tequila. Dip rims of your glasses in lime juice, then coarse salt to coat. Fill glasses with ice, add margarita mixture, and garnish with lime wedges. ENJOY!
Cinco de Mayo: Purpose Behind the Party
Quite literally, Cinco de Mayo means the fifth of May in Spanish, but contrary to popular belief, it’s not Mexico’s Independence Day. In fact, it’s a relatively minor holiday in its country of origin, commemorating the Mexican army’s victory over France in 1862 at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. Yet, somehow, the United States wound up turning it into a wildly popular celebration of Mexican culture and heritage. Wouldn’t it make more sense for us to celebrate Mexico’s heritage on their Independence Day? Maybe, but that would fall on the very unfestive date of September 16th, and would be called “Dieciseis de Septiembre.” Doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, does it? Many cities and towns all around the country hold parades, mariachi music performances, and street festivals on this date, but we can at least depend on Hammond’s La Carreta to host a local fiesta! While the indoor bar and dining areas are very cool, this happening hacienda’s outdoor space is definitely the place to be. Quaintly nestled in the historic downtown area, La Carreta’s patio adds a funky ambience to an otherwise traditional-looking area. In addition to its sidewalk seating, the patio has more seating mixed […]
Carnival Close to Home: Mardi Gras on the Northshore
Here we go, y’all! We’re heading into the last weekend of carnival season. It’s the grand finale, complete with the biggest parades and Mardi Gras day itself just around the corner. If you want to be a part of the celebrations, but don’t want to drive all the way into New Orleans and fight the monster crowds, there are plenty of parades still to come in neighboring communities on the Northshore. Friday, February 24 6:30pm – Krewe of Selene – Slidell 7pm – Original Krewe of Orpheus – Mandeville Saturday, February 25 9am – Krewe of Bush Parade Fat Tuesday, February 28 10am – Krewe of Covington Lions Club, followed by the Mystic Krewe of Covington 1pm – Krewe of Chahta Parade – Lacombe 2pm – Krewe of Folsom Parade For parade routes and other details, click here. Also on Mardi Gras Day, from 10am-4pm, the Louisiana Children’s Discovery Center in Hammond will be hosting their own celebration with king and queen parades every hour on the hour starting at 11am. There will also be edible Mardi Gras crafts, a costume contest, raffles and many more fun games and activities. Go here for details.
Tax Season Shakedown: Don’t Get Scammed!
Sadly, in addition to spring, tax season is almost upon us. (Cue the foreboding music.) Whether you’re an organized early filer or a last minute procrastinator, we all have one thing in common: we’re all potential victims of tax scams. Yes, it’s tough enough to prepare the returns and pay the money, but we also have to watch out for savvy swindlers. How do you know if you’re getting conned? Remember these tips from the Internal Revenue Service: It’s a hoax if someone… Calls to demand immediate payment using a specific payment method, such as a prepaid debit card, gift card or wire transfer. Threatens to immediately bring in local police or other law-enforcement groups to have you arrested for not paying. Demands that you pay taxes without giving you the opportunity to question or appeal the amount they say you owe. Asks for credit or debit card numbers over the phone. For more information on tax scams and other tax-related topics, visit the IRS website.
Composting for the Garden: Easy as 1-2-3
Composting: collecting organic waste, storing it and allowing it to decompose, then recycling it as soil fertilizer. It’s a dirty job. So, why would anyone actually do this? Several reasons, actually… It’s free fertilizer Takes the place of unnatural chemicals Yields healthier soil that retains moisture better, requiring less water Reduces the amount of waste in landfills Produces healthier plants with fewer pests Sounds great. Now what? Step 1: Get a container If you want to keep your compost easily accessible in the kitchen, there are small counter composters available, but the outdoor models hold much more material. For the DIYers, you can simply repurpose a plastic container, bucket or an empty coffee can. Lids are important on all these options to maintain the right moisture levels, but also to keep pests out and stink in. Step 2: Collect materials Compostable materials come from many sources around the house, such as food items like eggshells, coffee grounds, tea leaves, fruit and vegetable peels and scraps, breads, pasta, rice, spices, and herbs. (No meat or fish — imagine the smell and flies!) Paper goods you can use include newspaper, paper towels, cotton balls, cardboard, junk mail, and other paper that’s […]
Where to Pamper Your Pooch
While it’s true that the dog days of summer are still a ways away, any dog lover will tell you that everyday is a dog day! Our furry friends certainly enjoy toys, treats, and walks on the leash, but every now and then, it’s good to bump it up a notch with visits to the dog park and/or doggy day care. Previous generations probably would’ve found these concepts completely insane, but nowadays, we like to go the extra mile for our pets. Check out these two Hammond facilities that are dedicated solely to our canine babies. Zemurray Dog Park Conveniently located in downtown Hammond, in the far southwest corner of Zemurray Park, this modest little dog haven abides by the park’s hours, which are 8am-7pm daily. Water, trash barrels, and bag dispensers are provided, so dog owners are encouraged to pick up after their dogs. Given that it covers only about an acre, it’s imperative to keep it clean! It also features a double-gate entry/exit to the large and small dog areas for the safety of both dogs and owners. 400 South Oak Street; (985) 277-5900 Dog Gone Right Dog Day Care, Training & Grooming In addition to offering day […]
The Micro-Camper Trend: Downsizing the Recreational Vehicle
If you love the idea of hitting the open road this spring break or summer in an RV, but the massive size of those behemoths is too overwhelming, you’re in luck. Whether you’re turned off by the gas mileage or intimidated by the thought of maneuvering such an enormous machine through traffic and into campsites, you might be interested in the newest trend — lightweight trailers that can be towed behind cars and smaller SUVs. One example is the 16-foot-long 2017 Airstream Basecamp trailer, which weighs just over a ton. With a resemblance to a space capsule, it’s among the most distinctive on the road. It sleeps two and comes with options like a fridge, microwave, air conditioning, and stove, plus a hefty price tag of about $40,000. If you’re looking for smaller and more affordable options, inTech RV has one for you. It’s built on an all-aluminum frame and has less head space inside, making it easier to store in a residential garage. Despite its smaller size, it can carry a kayak or bike on the roof, and the inside features a queen bed, premium sound system, USB outlets for charging cellphones, and a slide-out kitchen with burner and […]
Declutter & Donate: Charities that Benefit from Your Spring Cleaning
Does the approach of springtime give you the urge to clean? For a lot of people in South Louisiana, this is compounded by the fact that we launch into the Mardi Gras season right after the holidays, so our homes have been festooned with lights, wreaths, and decorations for an awfully long time. Time to declutter! Instead of adding to the overflowing landfills, why not skip the trip to the dump and turn your trash into treasure to benefit those less fortunate? Here are a some local and nationwide charities that are happy to accept your donations of clothes, furniture, and other household items. Many have easy drop-off locations, some have services to pick up donations from your home, and all can provide you with tax write-off slips. Be sure to call ahead to verify hours and items they will accept for donations. On the flip side, if you’re looking for affordable clothes to update your spring and summer wardrobe, or pieces to spruce up your home, charitable thrift stores can be treasure troves — and it’s another way to support those less fortunate while recycling resources. Ginger Ford Northshore Fuller Center Reuse Store (Hammond) This faith-driven non-profit housing ministry, serving […]

A Berry Big Deal – 46th Annual Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival
It’s springtime in South Louisiana, and there’s no better way to celebrate its arrival than experiencing the 46th Annual Ponchatoula Strawberry Festival from April 7-9! The event not only pays tribute to those delectable, homegrown little beauties, but also to the dedicated local farmers who work tirelessly to cultivate them. Highlights of this family-friendly festival include vendor booths, rides and amusements, live entertainment on three stages, a state level beauty pageant, 10K road race, and parade. With all those great features, the fact that it still manages to remain a free event is pretty impressive. Also impressive is that what started in 1972 as a small block party, has grown into an enormously popular three-day event. “It was created by the Ponchatoula Chamber of Commerce and the Jaycees, and it began to grow immediately,” explains Donald Lanier, the festival’s public relations director. “It started with just a few hundred locals having fun. Today, we attract 300,000-500,000 folks. We have people from all over the world come to the festival each year to visit our little town that they heard had the best strawberries in the world.” While the food, fun, and entertainment are the big draws, it’s important to remember […]
When to Replace Your Ride
Ask a savvy consumer and they’ll tell you that the worst investment you can make is buying a car. But, unless you live in a city with reliable, affordable mass transit, it’s tough to live without one these days. So, once you’ve invested in that car, how long should you keep it? People can be pretty divided on this topic. On one extreme, you’ve got those who are addicted to that new car smell or the prestige of driving the latest model. On the other, there are those who hate the idea of a car note, and are willing to drive a vehicle until the wheels fall off. But, there is a sensible middle ground to be considered — when SHOULD you buy a new car? According to Credit.com, there is a specific set of criteria to consider: 1 — Your Vehicle Isn’t Safe “If you fear that it will break down and leave you stranded on the side of the road, you should replace it with something safer and more reliable,” says LeAnn Shattuck with Women’s Automotive Solutions. 2 — Repair Costs Are Mounting “It’s almost always going to be cheaper to keep fixing an old car,” says Gordon […]
Make Way for Mudbugs!
Cajun legend has it that when the Acadians were exiled from Nova Scotia in the 1700s, the lobsters missed them so terribly that they went in search of them. The forlorn crustaceans’ journey was so arduous that when they finally reached Louisiana, they were only a tiny fraction of their original size. And that’s how we got our beloved crawfish! As you’ve no doubt realized, crawfish season upon us, and good news — there’s a bumper crop of great big ones this year! Mudbug lovers are generally divided into two groups: boil-it-yourselfers and pre-boiled buyers. Luckily, there are several local seafood markets that can accommodate both groups. (NOTE: Always call ahead to check on that day’s availability.) Here are a few: B&J Seafood 2504 W. Church Street, Hammond (985) 350-1400 Berry Town Produce 2600 W Church Street, Hammond (985) 345-0048 www.berrytownproduce.com Michael’s Seafood 1795 S Morrison Boulevard, Hammond (985) 543-6871 Chris’s Seafood 54013 Highway 1062, Loranger (985) 878-2030 It’s generally recommended that you buy 4-5 pounds of crawfish per adult, though you can adjust this number to accommodate the appetites of your burly vs. dainty eaters. Whether you’re boiling or purchasing pre-boiled crawfish, be sure to stock […]
Is it Time to Refinance Your Home?
For most of us, our home is the most valuable asset in our portfolio, so mortgage decisions shouldn’t be made lightly. Refinancing is essentially paying off your existing mortgage by creating a new one. Why might you want to do that? According to The Federal Reserve Board… It’s a good idea if you wish to: Lower your interest rate Increase or decrease the length of your mortgage Change from an adjustable-rate mortgage to a fixed-rate mortgage Negotiate an adjustable-rate mortgage with better terms Get cash from the equity built up in your home It may not work for you if: You’ve had your mortgage for a long time Your current mortgage has a prepayment penalty You plan to move in the next few years Keep in mind that if you choose to refinance, you must first get approved by a lender, who will review your income, credit score, debts, assets, and the current value of your property. Also remember that fees, rates, and terms differ from lender to lender, so be sure to do your homework and shop around. For information on refinancing a mortgage, talk with your bank or financial advisor, or get a copy of The Federal Reserve […]
In Search of the Perfect Patio
While we don’t exactly have to suffer through arctic winters here in South Louisiana, it certainly gets rather chilly, right? So, as the weather warms up, many of us are looking forward to our spring “thaw,” and any excuse to get outside.
