Now, two years later, he’s well known to many Newtown residents, who call him the "Picture Man" and sometimes allow him to share their most personal […]

Made in Sarasota

Soon the little girl was strolling around her neighborhood selling small pieces of beaded jewelry. When she was 14, Champagne had her first craft show, and she’s never looked back.

The Luxe Bath

Benjamin Franklin reportedly took daily "air baths" by sitting in the buff in front of an open window. If he were around today, he’d surely opt for something more luxurious-a soak in a Zen tub perhaps, or a chromatherapy shower. Yes, there’s more happening in the bathroom now than ever before.

If You Knew Jerry

I’m so confused. You might be, too, if you’d just interviewed Jerry Springer-yes, that Jerry Springer, host of the controversial trash-talkin’ television show that bears his name (and regularly erupts with chants of "Jer-ry!
