Noted and passed -- May 21, 2012

• It's satisfying to see a future generation of leaders in training. Junior Leadership Kershaw County recently graduated its 24th class of youth, who completed a year-long program of team-building and leadership development activities. We congratulate the graduates of this year's Junior Leadership academy, which represents Camden, North Central and Lugoff-Elgin high schools and Camden Military Academy, and commend the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce, Kershaw County School District and Camden Military Academy for their joint sponsorship of this program.

Senior recollections

I meet several times a year with the district's Student Cabinet, a group comprised of student government leaders from all four grade levels at each of our high schools. This group gives me a valuable perspective that I can't really get anywhere else. For example, the Student Cabinet was instrumental in the selection of new technology for our one-to-one computer program. It was actually pretty cool to watch. I asked the members of the Cabinet to come in and work with all the devices under consideration and give specific feedback. Their input was extremely insightful. This is a ...

Colson’s crusade

When Charles Colson, White House legal counsel under President Richard Nixon, went to prison in 1974 for obstruction of justice related to the Watergate scandal, few people could have predicted the path his life would take. Colson, in the vernacular of the day, got "jailhouse religion" and said he would dedicate his life to helping those behind bars. His conversion was met with a great deal of suspicion. Colson ended up surprising his critics by founding Prison Fellowship, an international evangelical Christian ministry, and spending the next 36 years working to spread his message in an attempt to help inmates ...

Give me air!!

Hot, hot, hot! We're on the second day of 99 degrees-plus-the-heat-index weather. I'm on my wide front porch on the shady side of the house with a woven Palmetto frond fan in my hand. Back and forth, waving steadily. It helps a little -- fanning my sweat glistened cheeks and neck. The ladies a century ago would have said they were "glowing." They used these fans too -- in fact my older friend bought dozens of them for her daughter's summer wedding at Salem Black River Presbyterian years ago -- before they put in air conditioning. She gave me this ...
