EDITOR'S COLUMN: Connecting puzzle pieces

At back-to-back meetings in Pageland last week, the conversation was about things seldom discussed in public:
◆ Suicide
◆ Domestic violence
◆ Drugs
◆ Depression
◆ Lack of health care
◆ Poverty
Crystal Clyburn spoke about her cousin, who was killed Jan. 1, 2000, in a domestic-violence crime. She was stabbed 39 times. The man who stabbed her was convicted of murder.
The Clyburn family mourned her death and two children lost a mother, she said.
The murder goes beyond family, Crystal Clyburn said.
