Parents at odds with children over gender change

Dear Annie: We have two children and a 13-year-old grandson. Two years ago, our 48-year-old unmarried son very reluctantly told us that he has been diagnosed with gender identity disorder and considers himself to be female. This came as a complete surprise, but we decided to support her wholeheartedly, and we find her to be much happier than before.

Editorial: Sibby’s legacy

We offer our condolences to the family, friends and all of us who benefited from Sylvia Upton "Sibby" Wood's life. Wood, also known as "Sib," supported or was otherwise involved in so many things here in Kershaw County, they are almost too numerous to count. But count them we shall try as we mourn her death last week in Michigan at the age of 81.

Rich: The legacy of light

Many people have crossed the path of my life, but only one crossed it from three different directions. Don Light, one of Nashville's most admired powerbrokers and star makers, was meant to be part of my life. I say this repeatedly because I encountered him through friends in country music, Southern gospel and NASCAR racing.
