From the ubiquitous red kettles to the option to round up to the nearest dollar at the register, there are many requests for consumers' charity this season.
It's rare to go through a checkout line without being asked for a donation. At PetSmart it's for animals; at Wendy's it's for adoption; at the Dollar Tree Store it's toys for military kids. And, let's not forget the jingle of the Salvation Army bell that sends many of us digging into our pockets. It's true, needs are increasing yearly. One viewpoint is that if you're out shopping anyway, parting with an extra dollar here and there likely has little affect on your wallet—and if others do the same, the sum of all the small donations can make a big difference. But how do you decide when your donations are enough? Do you have to give each time to feel like you've helped? How do you walk through the cold past that kettle and the ringer of the …

Under the direction of high school student Sammie Barrett, local bands and members of the Plymouth community came together to raise awareness of RSD.
Four years ago, Plymouth South High School senior Sammie Barrett sprained her ankle while dancing ballet. Her doctors thought she must have gotten a small fracture due to the pain she felt afterwards. When an X-ray revealed nothing, however, they diagnosed her with reflex sympathetic dystrophy syndrome, or RSD. “[RSD] is a chronic nerve condition and it can spread throughout the entire body, landing a person in a wheelchair for the rest of their life,” Barrett said. “It feels like a burning, fiery feeling.” While Barrett's pain originated in her ankle, she said it has now extended up to her mid-back. As there is currently no cure for RSD and few people seem to know that it exists, Barrett has held a Rock for RSD concert at Plymouth …
