ON OUR WAY TO WEALTHY: Lonnie Robinson designs graphics for business cards, logos, stationary and posters. Although I initially viewed him as a graphic designer, I quickly learned that the graphics were only a byproduct of his full artistry.
Carlee McCullough: Tell us little bit about you.
Lonnie Robinson: I'm an artist. I say that first foremost because I have been creating art for most of my life. I've worked professionally over the years as an art director, graphic designer and an illustrator. But I've always made time to create art that stems solely from my internal thoughts and inspirations.

Dear Lucy: I have a co-worker who is very religious. She is always evangelizing and bragging about how blessed she is. That's fine for her, but I don't want to be made to feel like I am somehow less than she is just because she walks around beating up people all in the name of The Lord. Frankly, she uses God's name in vain by always telling us that "the Lord doesn't like this or that" or that bad stuff in our life is God mad at us. How do I deal with this? – Tired of it!

CHEF TIMOTHY We can put a man on the moon, elect an African American as president, legalize same-sex marriage and smoke pot in some states without breaking the law. But we have not reined in the high cost of healthcare, even though President Obama signed the Affordable Care Act into law.
Tens of millions of Americans have some type of medical ailment – such as stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes or cancer. We continue to get sicker and fatter as a nation because of unhealthy diets, dehydration and a lack of physical exercise.
The skyrocketing healthcare prices we are paying each year are mind-boggling. We're spending over $2.6 trillion annually on healthcare, and that amount is increasing daily.

ON OUR WAY TO WEALTHY This month, "On Our Way To Wealthy" probes the business of the arts.
Cities across the country are seeking to strike a balance between the budgets required for public safety – such as fire and police – and those allotted to the arts. The need for solid, well-financed fire and police departments is generally recognized. However, the need for a strong arts community often requires more justification.
Cultural centers clearly offer value to all communities regardless of the levels of crime and poverty. Neither the size of your bank account nor your educational background is the sole factor when measuring appreciation of the arts.
