Welcome to “Just Ask Laura”

Welcome to the Scioto County Candor’s Advice Column, “Just Ask Laura.”  Have you ever needed some advice, someone to tell it to you straight, with a little humor and tact?  You have come to the right place.

Let me introduce myself, my name is Just Laura, I am 54-years-old, and I have lived a lot of life.  I am a mother and a grandmother.   I was married for 23-years and have been divorced, engaged, dated and single.  

I have lived through almost everything that life has to throw at you.  Life has given me lots of lemons, and I learned to make some tasty lemonade.   I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Business and a Master’s degree in LIFE.  On a daily basis, someone asks me for advice, from love and romance to parenting and stain removal.

I will make you, my readers, 3 promises.  First of all, if I do not know the answer, I will find an expert that does.  

Second, I tell it like it is, I am not going to sugar coat anything.  

And third, I don’t want to spoil the ending but everything will be ok.  We will survive. Everything will be ok. And, we will be better for the experience.

I look forward to hearing from you. Please, send your questions, comments and even your opinions to the Scioto County Candor at Please, put “Ask Laura” in the subject line.
