To this conclusion I have come: the most deadly years of our lives are the ages 16 to 21. Those years give us a headiness that comes from new freedom -- a driver's license -- and the passing of the torch from strict childhood rules to more trust, different restraints and relaxed curfews.
While a small child and later, my parents tried to teach me the moral and religious principle, "One gets by giving." The lesson didn't "take" until later in life when I came to understand more fully the principle, "It is more blessed to give than to receive."
• For more than a century, KershawHealth's underlying mission has been to provide quality healthcare to all citizens of Kershaw County regardless of socioeconomic status.

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.

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 ...

It's reaction and then interaction and reaction and maybe interaction again.
