By Liz Gordon-Hancock
After interviewing my childhood best friends, Natasha and Theresa Meyer, who were twins, I set out to interview other twins from Bluffton. I managed to interview my first set of identical twins. Allow me to introduce Morgan and Natalie Basinger.

Morgan and Natalia are identical twins, the daughters of Scott and Kate Basinger. They are five years old. For the record, Morgan is older. The girls will start kindergarten in Bluffton this fall. They have one younger sister, Brooklynn, age 4.

Some simple tips to keep in mind when eating out

For starters, eat a healthy snack before heading out

By Christine Schroeder, MOT, OTR/L
We all have that favorite restaurant……that one place we just can’t resist. Our go- to place for special occasions. If you have committed to a healthier lifestyle, does that mean you have to kiss that restaurant good-bye? Not necessarily …….

However, adopting a healthy lifestyle does mean holding yourself accountable.
