• President Obama’s approval rating is at its lowest point since he took office, and positive public opinion of Congress is barely a blip on the screen, yet Democrats and Republicans continue to hold the country hostage in their political game of one-upsmanship. The term “crying shame” isn’t used much anymore but is appropriate in this case.

• While Camden High School won its recent football game with Lugoff-Elgin, both schools were winners when it came to their fund-raising effort for the United Way of Kershaw County. The two schools, as part of rivalry week, continued a tradition they’ve had for several years and the effort paid off with nearly $39,000 for the charitable organization. Students and administrators of both schools should be proud of their efforts.

• Human activity -- cars, power plants, burning of fossil fuels and other such things -- is responsible for at least half of all climate change that’s taking place now, including hotter temperatures and warming oceans. That’s the finding of a respected group of scientists studying the situation, but of course there’s no easy fix with many developing nations such as China being among the primary culprits. The United States needs to do its part in addressing this, but it is not this country’s problem alone.
