As I walked down to my mailbox, Clorox wipe in hand, a lone bicycle rider wearing a mask passed by. It felt surreal, like an episode of  “The Twilight Zone” or “Night of the Living Dead.” I never liked the science fiction book club that I joined in college at the urging of my boyfriend at the time...
For the last decade and beyond, many affluent Americans have enjoyed a quality of life that has allowed us to focus on “the finer things.”  The “ME” in us has been treated extremely well. Takeout sushi. Travel ball. Dry-aged $50 steaks. Country club galas. Fine wine. Boats bigger than 2-bedroom...
Since the novel coronavirus first impacted our community in early March, many of the stories in our paper have focused on the impact of the shutdown on businesses and how our community is responding to living life in a COVID-19 world.   Initially, we reported on how restaurants were...
Share the paths safely   Thanks to Susie Peiffer for her recent letter to the editor about bells for bicycles.    I would agree to make bike bells mandatory on DI only if it also be made mandatory that the walkers and runners on the trails and sidewalks not be allowed to wear earbuds or...

The good news is that nearly 23,000 of these 100% government-backed loans were approved in South Carolina and more than 1.66 million nationwide. Unfortunately, tens of thousands of small businesses...
Heading into 2020 I came across a carved wood-block sign on a bookcase in a Costa Rican hotel that implored its visitors to ‘Reinvent Your Routine.’ Given that the average New Year’s Resolution lasts until January 14, I had been patient with enacting this imperative lest it be misinterpreted as a...
DITA and DIBA join as co-sponsors   Last week, like most small business owners, I waited to hear about the status of my Paycheck Protection Program loan. Many of you may have heard that the program got off to a rocky start.   And perhaps it did. But I am actually amazed at how quickly a...
