Population growth and shifts drive redistricting

This session the South Carolina General Assembly addressed redistricting, the process of reconfiguring election districts that is required every ten years in order to reflect population changes reported in the latest U.S. Census. It is a painstaking task to ensure that state legislative and congressional districts are equal in population, guaranteeing each person's vote is equally represented in the state legislature and in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Noted and passed -- Aug. 8, 2011

• We note with sadness the death last week of veteran horse trainer Charles "Charlie" V.B. Cushman Jr., whose name is synonymous with the horse industry both in Kershaw County and abroad. A twist of fate thrust Cushman from race spectator into the saddle at the 1949 Carolina Cup as a fill-in for an injured jockey. He went on to capture third place in that spring classic, and it seemed his fate with riding and Camden was sealed. Cushman built on his expertise, riding for Hall of Fame trainer W. Burling "Burly" Cocks and training such racing notables as Explode ...

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.
