Your newborn baby is cute, for sure, but it doesn't seem like there is much going on in there. The baby eats. The baby cries. The baby fills diapers. The baby sleeps. However, your baby is quite intelligent for one who is such a novice at life. If he or she could talk, this is what you might hear.

Loss is a difficult part of life. It's connected to us like our skin. It's unavoidable; it's constant; it's never mistaken in the hearts that feel it. And just as skin reveals time passed, loss leaves a mark on our strength and shakes our very core. It follows no schedule. Loss has neither good nor bad timing, as we are unable to make that judgment. It can be swift and random; it can be slow and methodical. It comes in many forms. Loss can be as impalpable as a dream not reached or as tangible as ...

I support building the proposed Camden Sports Complex and contracting with the YMCA to operate and manage it for many reasons, some of which benefit me and some because others in Camden would benefit from having a YMCA in the city.

Some of the facilities proposed for the new YMCA, including an air-conditioned walking track, aerobic and fitness machines and, we hope soon, an ...

Two women close to Adriana Laster hope she is found soon … and have a warning about the man who may be responsible for her disappearance. Her aunt and legal guardian, Dorothy Forston, of Alabama, and Phyllis Horn, the grandmother of Laster's daughter, described the missing woman as a "sweet, little kid" who grew up to be an attentive, if not always present mother. Laster disappeared last September while living with Freddie Grant, 52, who is being held in connection with the disappearance of Columbia teenager Gabrielle "Gabbie" Swainson.

Of course, some of that alienation has come among members of the Republican-controlled General Assembly who are loathe to cede any additional power to a governor -- any governor -- because it might lessen their authority.
