She was six weeks along and elated by the news.
Then, she found a lump in her breasts.
“I went to the doctor to confirm that pregnancy and inquired about the lump,” said Rickenbaker. “He felt, at that time, that it was probably just hormones, and I went home feeling that everything was probably OK.”

Letter: Reader comments on recent drug bust

Posted on October 29, 2017 1:01 am by Submitted via Email

All of these folks need our prayers and help. I do not know any of them, but to wish harm on anyone for having an addiction is wrong. Drug addiction is a disease; so is alcoholism; so is smoking. While I agree our courts don’t always do what is best, I do think they do what they can in most cases. In our area of South Carolina, you will not find the most qualified judges as in other areas. You also will not find the best facilities to deal with drug abuse or the victims. You won’t find enough places … Read the rest

Blessed to live in South Carolina

Posted on October 28, 2017 9:09 pm by Cindy Risher

If you were born in the United States of America, you hit the lottery in life.
If you were born in South Carolina, you hit it twice.
If you moved to South Carolina and have totally accepted her as your home of choice, without unfair complaint or criticism, you are most blessed. I fall into the last category. I made the move to South Carolina from Ohio more than 30 years ago.
Are there things about our state that need serious improvement? Of course there are.
For instance, take our highways and roads. I don’t think anyone would argue that … Read the rest

Manning woman views breast cancer diagnosis as an opportunity

Posted on October 27, 2017 3:03 pm by Robert Joseph Baker

Lori Dunlap saw her breast cancer differently than most other patients.
Having what she described as a “deep faith,” she came to see the illness not as a burden, but as an opportunity.

A Sumter native and current resident of the Home Branch area of Clarendon County, Dunlap was diagnosed in 2009 after performing a self-exam.
“I pretty much had it in my head when I found the lump … Read the rest
