PERSONALLY SPEAKING: A legacy of local news

Today would have been my dad’s 79th birthday. And while he’s not here to enjoy all the things like cards and presents and my mom’s homemade cheesecake to mark his special day, he is still very much celebrated.

Often I find myself sitting in front of my computer at the paper trying to channel him, looking for guidance on a particular decision or wondering what he would do if he was walking in my shoes on any given day. Mostly I wonder what he would think about the way the world has changed today — particularly the world of news. And what he would want me to do in response to those changes.

S.H.E.: Calling the Fashion Police

I broke the law this week.

Well, not really a law like the police would be interested in. At least not the real police. Maybe the fashion police. This was more of a style law. Or a rule, really. An out dated rule, if you ask me.

GUEST VIEW: Go gold in September for Childhood Cancer Awareness

“Your child has cancer.”

These are the words no parent ever wants to hear.

But every day, the families of at least 43 children around the world will hear just that.

S.H.E.: Facing the first of many ‘lasts’

As this month comes to a close, I face another “last” moment. Watching the last high school football game in which my son, Alec, who is a senior, will play.

Dealing with kids during times of tragedy

Devon Morrison’s death touched an entire community. It wouldn’t be uncommon for area children to struggle either from grief over missing a friend or fear about what might have happened.

More no-parking signs to be placed in Greenville

More no-parking signs are going to be placed throughout Greenville, making roads more accessible and safe. During Tuesday night’s meeting, the Greenville City Council approved multiple items on the agenda regarding parking within the city. Traffic-control orders establishing no-parking signs were approved for some streets after the city received complaints.

JULIE STAFFORD: It’s not whether you win or lose …

Yesterday I went to my second middle school track meet ever. I don’t remember track being an option when I was in seventh or eighth grade, but am so grateful it’s available for my kids today. I, of course, am my son’s biggest fan, paying close attention to his events and cheering loudly so he can hear. But it’s the last Greenville girl to cross the finish line in the 3200 meter – or two mile – that I’m silently cheering loudest for. That’s because I was that girl.
