But candy canes weren't always the curved and colorful treats they are today. In the 1700s, candy canes were nothing more than straight white sticks of sugar candy used to decorate Christmas trees.

From personal experience, YMCA a confidence-builder

When I was young I was diagnosed with epilepsy. Back then it was not understood, and my parents kept me from physical activities. When I started going to the "Y" I played volleyball. I gained confidence. Eventually I got into the pool. I was unsure about it but my friends pushed me to do more.

Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes

Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.

Beautiful in a different way

She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.

The road diet boon-doggle mistake

The road diet -- what a mistake. Even the mayor admits it could be a mistake. When the mayor was running for office he led me to believe that he was against the Broad Street diet.
