  • In the heroin fight, there is no ideal world

    Every time the lottery edges toward a multi-million dollar prize, most everyone plays the game of “what if.”
    What if you won $485 million -- or even a million? What would you do with it?
    Oh, I’d buy a new car and a house on the beach. I’d pay off my debts and those of my children. I’d travel. Give a portion to my church and other charities. I’d live it up in the high life.
    Now, switch that up.
    What if your child was a heroin addict? What would you do?

  • What happens to a legacy?

    Dean Smith, the legendary former coach of the University of North Carolina, passed away Sunday just three weeks short of his 84th birthday.  
    Smith was a coaching icon, having been at the helm of the Tar Heels for 36 years from 1961-1997.
    The Tar Heels were perennial national powers during his time, winning two national championships and playing in 11 Final Fours.  
    Advanced dementia was reportedly the major contributor to Smith’s death, which, though there probably isn’t a good way to die, this is one of the worst.
