Take sunscreen with you to reapply during the day, especially after your child swims or exercises. This applies to waterproof and water-resistant products as well.
Follow the directions on the package for using a sunscreen product on babies less than 6 months old. All products do not have the same ingredients; if your or your child’s skin reacts badly to one product, try another one or call a doctor. Your baby’s best defense against sunburn is avoiding the sun or staying in the shade.
James Hollis and his fiancé, Melinda Howard, wanted to do something great for kids with special needs in the community. The couple, owners of H&H Petting Zoo in Coker, came up with an idea: a petting zoo, allowing children of all ages to get up close and personal with animals.
On Saturday, May 19, their vision came to fruition. Unfortunately, Howard wasn’t there – she passed away recently after a battle with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, a rare brain disorder. Still, the day was a joyful one for all involved. The petting zoo was held near The Lee Anna Grace Cunningham Field at Sokol Park North (Miracle League Field).

What does summer mean to you? Hot days soaking in cool swimming pools, or lounging at the lake house? Trips to the beach, toes in the sand as the sounds of the waves relax you into oblivion?
For some of us, we look forward to reading. We’re often so busy that we can’t get through even one novel we’ve been itching to read. We’re hoping that this will help give you some ideas on which books might suit your fancy as you lie on those beaches and swim in those pools.
