Old Glory

Several weeks ago, the untimely death of a well-known singer caused a media frenzy of sorts and snared the attention of many. Most of us saw at least one report relating to the death of Whitney Houston and the apparent basis of her demise. In fact, I believe it safe to say, the majority would agree Ms. Houston's death was a sad and senseless loss of life for such a young and gifted performer. Few would debate this veracity. However, in this case, for reasons unknown, there appeared to be a penalty for the fame, fortune, and talent; tragic ...

Casualties of partisanship

The cause of centrism in the U.S. Senate took another nosedive this week when Sen. Olympia Snow of Maine stunned everyone with her announcement that she wouldn't seek another term. Snowe, who won her 2006 re-election bid with a whopping 74 percent of the vote, said she was tired of the partisan bickering in the Senate. "I do find it frustrating … that an atmosphere of polarization and 'my way or the highway' ideologies has become pervasive in campaigns and in our governing institutions," Snowe declared.

State government is ‘atrocious’

I applaud S.C. Sens. Joel Lourie and Vincent Sheheen for having the wherewithal to speak out about our South Carolina government. It is atrocious. Not one layer of government knows what the other layer is doing and doesn't seem to care as long as they receive their paycheck!

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 Victorian cast iron fence and neat little patch of grass in my front yard belie what is happening behind my house. 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.
