Fighting two diseases

Two horrific diseases have been brought into the spotlight recently -- ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, which has caught the public eye through an "ice bucket challenge," and depression, brought into further consciousness through the tragic suicide of actor/comedian Robin Williams. Attention in such matters is always beneficial, both in terms of raising money to fight the diseases and in making Americans more aware of the challenges of such maladies.

Taming the wilderness

I jokingly call my backyard "the wilderness." My house, built in 1912, sits fairly close to my downtown street, as is the custom in the Historic District in Sumter.

The deck at the back of my house overlooks a very deep backyard filled with towering oak and pecan trees. Just over the fence at the rear of the yard is a magnificent willow oak which is probably 100 years old. It rises majestically above all and makes a ...

Dealing with depression

There is help, there is healing. Many descriptions describe the downward plunge; the things that hold you down and the things that take you out. The common known things are drugs, alcohol -- addictions to things with chemical reactions that are bad for the body. The body is a chemical reaction chamber; all it needs is a catalyst and it's a brand new chemical which can put that nail in your coffin. The reactions or side effects are the worst. It's reaction and then interaction and reaction and maybe interaction again.

Candidate Clinton?

If there was doubt about whether Hillary Clinton will jump into the 2016 presidential race, it was largely dispelled earlier this week when she conducted a wide-ranging interview in which she spelled out many of her foreign-policy differences with President Obama, who was her boss until she stepped down as secretary of state 19 months ago. During her tenure at the State Department, Clinton remained a loyal soldier, though she now reveals she didn't enthusiastically support all the initiatives that were required of her by Obama.
