What is The ALPHA Center?

So many people have told me that they don't know what The ALPHA Center, is that I decided to write a column about it. The ALPHA Center, an acronym for "All Life's Problems Have Answers," offers an important response to local citizens wrestling with substance abuse; addictions to alcohol, drugs and tobacco; anger management problems; and a familiar raft of behavioral issues.

What "I hope you like your baby" means

At Christmas close to a year ago in a secure juvenile detention center, a group of volunteers had the residents/offenders assemble newborn packages for new moms. There was a beautiful baby blanket, clothing for an infant and an assortment of simple personal items in each package. Besides putting the various parts into a plastic bag for transport and distribution, the boys were asked to write in their first language, Spanish, some words for the mother. The volunteers provided no script or guidance on what to say. After completion, the packets and the notes were put aside.

Seven years ago -- in response to the death of Camden High School student Michael Smith in Kershaw County's only gang-related shooting -- Mayes said the community had to become "a better gang than the gangs."
