Aha, so you thought the phrase “all for one and one for all” was originated by Alexander Dumas, author of “The Three Musketeers”! No, William Shakespeare, albeit in reverse, wrote it in 1594. Today “all for one, one for all” reigns in the Carolina Core, the region where the Piedmont Triad Pa…

As I hung out on Washington Street last week, I was inspired by the level of community engagement. On Aug. 2, neighborhoods across the city celebrated National Night Out, building the connections between their communities, area nonprofits and the High Point Police Department.

I went to my mom’s recently and she had a box of old photographs for us to look through. There were many family pictures from when my siblings and I were little and all at home. There were many pictures of relatives that I didn’t know or had only met a few times. Mom told me who they were an…

OK, I left off part of the headline; it should say, effortless gardening is not easy. But with the right tools and modern inventions that are time-saving, it can be “easier.” As wise folks have always said, “anything worth doing takes effort.”

Q: Our soon-to-be-5-year-old son enjoys playing with his 14-month-old brother, but there have been three times recently when the baby has started crying and when I check, big brother has a guilty look on his face. So far, the baby has suffered a scratch under one eye, a red mark on his face …

I have written many times about the value of trees, but each year more and more homeowners continue to buy trees and plant them and make major mistakes that result in tree death or unhappy outcomes for the owners.

Some parents, I have discovered, believe in the parenting slot machine theory. They hold fast to the notion that some parents are simply lucky, meaning that chance, and chance alone, determines whether one has easy children or difficult children. This parenting slot machine supposedly pays s…

I love to see Richard Payne, but beware! His smile is endearing and captivating, but I know he is always up to something. I’ll confess, that “something” is always very altruistic. When I first met him at High Point University basketball games, I knew him only as Richard, Toye’s husband, Jody…

High Point native McKenna Farlow — a 21-year-old rising senior at the University of North Carolina School of the Arts, where she’s in the School of Design & Production — has spent much of the summer working a paid internship with an Emmy Award-winning television design firm, J.P. Connelly, in Los Angeles.

DEAR DR. FOX: I was surprised that you suggested feeding high-quality baby food to someone’s elderly Yorkie recently. I stopped adding baby food to my dogs’ meals due to reports of high levels of heavy metals being found in many baby foods. Has that improved, and is it now safe to feed baby …

Q: How can I explain to my kids, ages 6 and 9, that “fair” and “equally” are not the same. They complain constantly that I’m not fair. What they mean is I don’t treat them the same.

He’s 33 now, but Alex Nsengimana still vividly remembers the day — more than 25 years ago — that a shoebox changed his life.

Today’s column is a twofer! I’ll give you a glimpse into just how a friendship played a role in the naming of the Workman School of Dental Medicine at High Point University. Secondly, we’re at the Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist High Point Medical Center open house for the renovated lobby, the final contribution of the High Point Regional Hospital Guild.

Q: We have a 3½-year-old and each night we have a routine that we go through with her — bath, pajamas, brush, choose two books and read them, sing a couple of songs, and pray before lights out. Bedtime typically falls between 7:30 and 8 p.m. each night and she sleeps soundly for about 11-12 …

When attorney Duane Bryant decided to open a barbecue restaurant in High Point, he could’ve chosen any number of locations. Instead, Bryant chose a small, brick building on East Green Drive, just a stone’s throw away from the Brentwood Street office building his law practice has occupied for more than 30 years. Moreover, the new restaurant — named DK Bones Barbeque — stands in the middle of a High Point food desert.

I am not good at fixing plumbing problems. I have fixed leaky faucets, changed shower heads and repaired toilets many times. Those are relatively minor repairs. Some of those repairs might result in a little cup to catch the drip, but the drip will normally stop after a few days.

Think about it! Champion of Hope! We all need a champion of hope, yet we all can be a champion of hope to someone else. In other words, hope abounds. That is exactly what happens at the Salvation Army of High Point and is celebrated at the Champion of Hope Dinner and Auction held at the High…
