The star of the Food Network shows Paula’s Home Cooking and Paula‘s Best Dishes said the .031-mile course would cover a half block of Whitaker Street in Savannah’s Historic District and would be open to walkers of all skill levels. … “I want to show people that just because you’re diabetic doesn’t mean you can’t get out there and move around a little,” Deen added.
