Re: “Is Charleston next in line to take a stand on plastic bags?

Ima,

I had a reply going to you, but it might make a better column than reply.

At the very least, can you provide some link to the historical context instead of just your recollection?

Re: “Is Charleston next in line to take a stand on plastic bags?

Yes there are more important issues, but it's also a good idea not to look over the seemingly small ones like this. Paper and plastic mills are a huge part of the issue that I'd like to hear more about, but this is just a brief article, not an essay.
Being able to recycle them from home like we do paper and plastic would encourage the consumer to be more thoughtful. Also, awareness of issues is the first step.

Oh yay. More uptown housing being replaced by commerce. Way to go, rich guys. Thanks for caring about the community.

Re: “We are the Super Fans

Any mention of big local music support should probably include WYLA FM 87.5, which plays almost entirely local music 24/7.

Re: “We are the Super Fans

Wow, an article about music in Charleston and not a single mention of the best venue in the Southeast, The Charleston Pour House? I don't think I've seen any one of these folks there except for Hunter when she was performing

No mention of the jam scene where we are being represented nationwide by Dangermuffin?

Re: “Is Charleston next in line to take a stand on plastic bags?

It's pretty easy to use my cotton net bags that I got on eBay pretty cheaply. Once I forced the habit (to stop forgetting them) it's no big deal. The cashiers don't love them, but I don't mind helping bag because I'm not lazy.

Re: “What to do when there are no more treatment options left

May the spirits of your passed loved ones and ancestors and pets gather around you and help you on your journey. I do not know your beliefs but I can tell that the best is yet to come for a kind soul such as yours.
Much love to you.

PS try the weed oil, why not.

Re: “What to do when there are no more treatment options left

Dear Allison, I have never been fortunate to meet you, but I check Facebook everyday to see if there is an update. You are quite the inspiration, and I'm in awe of you more than I can say. I appreciate how you share yourself with all of us. I send you good thoughts and prayers everyday. Hope to see a photo of Maybelle on her bike soon. Peace to you.

Re: “What to do when there are no more treatment options left

Alison, I don't know you but I do. I also have cancer - incurable cancer. But after 2 failed rounds of chemo, and 3 different radiation regimens, which have left my bowels in quite the mess, I have found remission in more off-the-grid treatment regimes. The universities and standard medical treatment facilities are limited in their prescriptions. Please don't give up because they have said there is nothing more they can do. Go to see Keith Block at the Block Integrative Cancer Institute near Chicago. It's where Dr. Andrew Weil sends all of his cancer patients. I did -- and have now had 3 (1.5 years) NED (no evidence of disease) scans. I thought I was done for also. Now, am told I could be around for 20 more years. Don't give up. Check out 'Radical Remission' by Dr. Kelly Turner. Start your own research. Don't rely 100% on medical doctors from universities - like all of us they only know what they were taught - and there is a tsunami coming from the naturopathic/ayurvedic/alternative medicine fronts for many diseases. Not saying any other techniques will work - but there are many paths that perhaps you are not aware of or haven't been tried. Block can help you find them.

Re: “What to do when there are no more treatment options left

I'm so sorry to hear this Allison - you and I were acquaintances once upon a time at good ole TTU in the journalism program - and yet I have to tell you how much I admire your attitude. Go, be with those who matter. It's the best medicine and the only legacy that matters. Sending many positive thoughts your way.

Re: “What to do when there are no more treatment options left

What a gift of yourself you have given us, one we cannot repay. Your spirit is unstoppable and I must embrace you and your courage. Our lives are sudden and quick, and I don't want to forget your lesson, or your heart. I've not met you, but I love who you are...I wish I could console you and your family.

Re: “Help is the difference between hurt and happiness

Connie, I am so proud of you for taking a stand against depression. So many people will not seek help because of society's stigma of 'mental illness.' Depression is a chemical imbalance that is treatable by prescription drugs and/or therapy. I have taken SSRIs for depression for decades, and I feel good about helping myself. I have always been very open about my depression in the hope that others would see the results and take steps to get the help they need. I am so happy that you are doing well and enjoying your life. Love you, Aunt Linda
