What a great and special time to be this age

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might see us anywhere around town, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

At the State of Mind Reunion Feb. 19 at Oyster Factory Park on the May River, we asked: “What’s the best thing about being the age you right now?”

Bill Bollin, Bluffton: “The best thing is that I don’t have to have my life messed up by social media like some teenagers.”

Lyndee Simoneaux, Bluffton: “I’m so much wiser than I used to be – and I make wiser decisions.”

Jim Taylor, Bluffton: “It’s easy to avoid some of the mistakes I used to walk straight into.”












Glen Umberger, Bluffton: “I’m not dead yet!”

Chris Poschmann, Bluffton: “The best thing is I can enjoy every day to the fullest and be grateful.”
