In the 1980s, the American Medical Association distributed a widely viewed public safety announcement encouraging parents to teach their children about “Stranger Danger.” In the 30-second clip, a man drives up to a young girl on her way to school. He begins a conversation with her and she responds...
My lead book today is an absolute must read. I feel confident that everyone will love this book. “Ask Again, Yes” by Mary Beth Keane is a true gem. Great story, beautiful writing and I just heard it has been optioned for a series (move over “Big Little Lies”!). By turns tragic, redemptive,...
Roundabouts are good for drivers…and the planet As a longtime resident of Daniel Island, I have noted with some consternation letters to the editor that have expressed opposition to the roundabout. The simple fact is that roundabouts are safer, faster, and more environmentally friendly than...
August is “ABLE to Save Month” (#ABLE toSave), a national grassroots initiative of the ABLE National Resource Center, designed to educate the public about ABLE accounts. The campaign not only brings attention to this important savings resource, but it also demonstrates a positive step towards...

Childhood experiences, both positive and negative, can have a tremendous impact on an individual’s future as it relates to lifelong...
