Volunteer concerned services are being abused

Dear Annie: Four months ago, I joined a nonprofit that provides free tutoring and homework help to elementary-school kids. When I started, the kids coming into our center were from low-income minority and immigrant families. These were kids who would be home alone all afternoon if they didn't come to us.

YMCA important step for city

Our children began swimming competitively at a young age. We lived in Columbia at the time and were members of a community swim club in our subdivision. When we moved to Camden in 1979, the YMCA pool provided them with the opportunity to continue this important social and physical activity. Our son and his wife live in Greenville and utilize their "Y" for work-outs several times a week. He is still a swimmer. Our daughter's family participates in the "Y" in Sumter; both grandchildren play basketball there. Our grand-daughter's school holds their swim team practices and meets at ...

Where’s the truth?

Over the Christmas break, I spent a couple hours cleaning up my office and sorting through all the stuff I've accumulated since the summer. One of the folders I found contained a report from an organization called the South Carolinians for Responsible Government (SCRG). This group is headquartered in Columbia and is reportedly funded in large part by out-of-state money. The SCRG is best known for its advocacy for school choice/tax credit legislation. These folks have a wealth of resources. At a hearing I attended during last year's General Assembly, the SCRG had three staff members, an ...

Noted and passed

• Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich vowed that he would conduct a positive campaign for the presidency, and he did just that -- until his numbers started dropping. Gingrich, who polled well both in Iowa and New Hampshire at one time, unleashed a series of vitriolic ads against Mitt Romney as Gingrich's star began to fade. Other GOP candidates on the right have done the same as Romney has gained strength. These days, a positive message seems to last only as long as a candidate is doing well.

A scorned South Carolina hero

April 11, 2014 was a very important day in the history of South Carolina. Few people noticed that anything much happened – but I would argue that this was the day we as a state did two very important things.
