By Holly Bounds Jackson and Tabitha Safdi

Books

Motherhood is certainly rewarding—but it’s also exhausting!  Playing taxi driver, personal chef, housekeeper, doctor and so much more can zap all of your energy by day’s end.  But a group of moms in Bluffton is going the extra mile to make time for themselves-—and it’s all in the name of literacy.  With the catchy title, I Like Big Books and I Cannot Lie, this book club is all about breaking away from the hustle and bustle, while showing their children that there’s always time for a good book.

Sea Turtle

When a sea turtle is found stranded or injured, SCDNR brings the animal to the Sea Turtle Care Center for treatment. Sea turtles arrive most commonly suffering from debilitated turtle syndrome, shock from being exposed to cold temperatures, or injury from a boat strike or shark bite. Their staff veterinarians diagnose each turtle and work with Care Center staff and volunteers to provide treatments and rehabilitative care. Patients are given IV fluids, antibiotics, vitamins and other medications.
