By Jay Minkin
For the music lover on your holiday list, start with a copy of From The Ground Up, the debut album by singer/songwriter John Fullbright. Add a pair of tickets to see his performance at The Beachland on Saturday, January 12, and you’ll have the ultimate stocking stuffer. The all-ages intimate full band show in the Beachland Tavern is only $10 in advance and $12 on the day of the show.
Only 24 years young, this phenom from Okemah, Oklahoma, with a guitar and harmonica, plays a set of original tunes with a delivery that offers shades of Ryan Adams and Tom Waits. From the same hometown as the iconic Woody Guthrie, Fullbright grew up listening to reco ...

The Power of Proper Planning

By Brent Moore
Q: We are considering an addition instead of buying a new home. How long does your design phase take?—Tiffany M., Bay Village
A: Great question. Many people are choosing to stay in their current homes because they like their neighbors, location, schools, and more. Today, it often makes more sense to make your current home your dream home.
The design time frame varies from one home to another because each is so different. Remodeling—including additions—is completely custom work. At Moore Home Remodeling, we aim to create a concept three to four weeks after an initial meeting.
We will come up with a few ideas that som ...

Choosing a Realtor

By Matt Lasher
Choosing a Realtor is a big decision.  This person will help you sell what is likely your single largest asset.  Realtors offer many different types of services, so be sure to interview at least two potential Realtors.  Here are a few questions you may want to consider asking:
What is the rationale behind your fee structure?
There is no standard fee structure in the industry, so ask an agent why they charge what they do. If you’re paying a percentage of your home’s value (the most common method in our market), ask what services you’ll receive in return.
My program includes a full range of effective, t ...

Is Your Bladder Leaking?

Category: Health & Beauty

By Dr. Jeff Christian
No one likes to talk about urinary incontinence, but it’s a very common problem and it impacts on the lifestyle of active women of all ages. Stress incontinence, leaking urine with coughing, sneezing, laughing or exercising, often limits what a woman is willing to do socially or at the gym.  Women are embarrassed by this condition and often are afraid that treatment for incontinence will require difficult surgery or a long recuperation time.
Newer technologies can put these fears to rest.  
The most common cause of stress incontinence is damage to the pelvic floor from childbirth, but stress incontinence can also occur i ...

We live in a world of endless uncertainty. At every turn, on every channel, we learn of more peril.

Technology and your Teeth

By Drs.Vienna and Bizga´╗┐
While most of us get excited when buying a new high-definition plasma TV, the newly released iPad mini or a cell phone with all the bells and whistles, dentists get just as excited about new digital X-ray machines.
Always keeping up with the latest technology in an effort to offer patients the best in dental care, we have invested in two new digital X-ray machines. One takes a full view panoramic of the patient’s mouth, jaw and sinuses. This digital machine circles the head, zeroing in on all areas of the mouth and parts of the face, and then the images are shown on a computer screen in the treatment room. The second smaller digital X- ...

Help for urinary tract health

by on 12/11/2012 - 03:07 pm
Category: Health & Beauty

The pain and discomfort of a urinary tract infection are some of the most frequent medical complaints among women. The vast majority of UTIs are caused by the common bacteria E.coli. While harmless in the small intestine where it normally resides, E.coli becomes a problem when it migrates up the urinary tract, grabs on to the bladder wall and begins to multiply. The result is the pain, irritation and infection associated with a UTI.
Usually, antibiotics are prescribed to kill the E.coli. And while in some cases it’s necessary, we know antibiotics come with a host of side effects. One problem is antibiotics kill all bacteria, good and bad. However, killing off the good ...

Rescue Tails: Gabby!

By Georjette Thomas
Attention Deficit Disorder is a label often given to children and adults, and, unless trained, our dogs can suffer from it, too. Some of the ways to manage this in human beings is to begin with a structured routine, attainable goals, and positive reinforcement or rewards. When managed properly, one’s life will open widely and good things will come. We use this same approach with our pets.
Dogs want to please their owners, and to know their place in our lives. An organized routine begins when they wake up each day and ends when they are put to bed at night. Giving them structure means they have jobs, and all dogs need, and want, to know thei ...

Rescue Tales: Pumpkin Pie!

Category: Community

Pumpkin Pie and her mom, Thelma, were picked up at the Trumbull County dog pound where they were out of space. The two beauties were the next on the list to be put down. We started them off together in one foster home. Mom Thelma is eating and needs much more one-on-one time. Pumpkin is now living with a fantastic foster family and two other dogs.
Pumpkin would be a great second dog as she is really social. She is learning a lot from the pack of balanced dogs that she lives with. She is 24 pounds and the vet guesses she is about eight to 10 months old. She is as sweet as Pumpkin Pie with gorgeous markings.
She loves to run so a fenced in yard is a must. She also has ...

The Year Will Be Different

By Jeff Cook
No, it won’t. In fact, unless you do something different from what you’ve done for however many years you’ve done it—in this case following through and succeeding in your New Year’s resolutions—you will repeat the same behavior you have repeated for all of your previous years.
So what’s the key to succeeding in one’s resolutions?
The answer is three-fold:
A. Accept reality. If your goal is improved health and fitness, including a loss of weight in the form of body fat, you must make this a priority and make room for it in your life. Wishes do not come true on their own. Carefully thought-out goals and a ...
