Dot-com bust again?

Most Kershaw County residents will no doubt recall the dot-com bubble of about 15 years ago, when a host of new Internet-based businesses saw their stock prices soar to stratospheric levels, only to come crashing violently to earth a short time later.

The investing world declared that such a thing would never happen again, that investors had wised up to such pie-in-the-sky behavior.

Painting with a purpose

Two fourth-graders from Malvern Hill Baptist Church and Camden Elementary School had a goal: revamp the visitation room at the Department of Social Services (DSS) to make it more child-friendly for foster children who come through. McKenzie Taylor and Madison Williams ran two lemonade stands to raise the money. They also received two gift cards donated by Wal-Mart totaling $125, a can of paint donated by Lowe's and the hard work from the Malvern Hill Baptist Church youth group to complete the project. The group, including the two girls, sanded, painted walls and bookshelves, cleaned, steam cleaned the furniture ...

For protests, simplicity matters

After spending an afternoon with Occupy DC, the District of Columbia's branch of the Occupy Wall Street movement, I now understand why they avoid formal leaders. For one thing, when things go wrong, it's easier to spread the blame around. That's something the young radicals have in common with the folks on Wall Street and in Washington.

It's definitely time to talk about Phase II

In 2007, just as I was arriving in Kershaw County, the school district began work on Phase I of the Facilities Equalization Program. Phase I was envisioned to encompass eight construction and renovation projects at a cost of $102 million, which was generated through Installment Purchase Plan bonds. Through a combination of excellent management and a favorable construction market, the $102 million has been stretched to complete several more projects beyond the original scope. The additional projects included a new Jackson Elementary School (also the first LEED-certified Gold School in South Carolina), an addition and media center renovation at Blaney ...

Boston Strong

No city is more inextricably linked to this country's quest for freedom than Boston. From an early age students learn about the Boston Tea Party, the Boston Massacre and all the other historic events that helped set the colonies on the road to freedom. So it was especially fitting Monday that the city showed that it's indeed "Boston Strong" by completing its famous marathon. Of course, the race came a year after bombers killed three and wounded hundreds during the running of this country's most storied 26.2-mile race.
