Hunger & Homelessness Awareness Week

Each year, during the week before Thanksgiving, Homeless Coalitions throughout the state and nation observe a week of special events to focus attention on the fact that many citizens face hunger and/or homelessness, either chronically or sporadically, and for a variety of reasons. Many of the chronically hungry and homeless are elderly or are persons with mental illnesses or addictions. But many more are facing these concerns this year, often for the first time, because of unemployment rates that are still high, evictions from rental housing and loss of homes to foreclosures, the exhaustion of unemployment benefits, and the ...

Vote

Hurricane Sandy proved once again that Mother Nature is always in charge. In fact, the number of natural tragedies in the last few years has been almost incalculable, emphasizing the point that man has little power when facing natural forces. Though nobody would have chosen it to happen because of a storm inflicting such cruel damage to so many people, it did focus publicity off the presidential race, and that was fortunate; the media coverage had become stifling.

Good Samaritan

I just want to say "thank you." I went to get gas at Circle K in Lugoff Sunday, October 28. I used my debit card. I did not know I had lost it until Monday. My heart fell to my feet. I knew the only place I had been was Circle K. I went back Monday with a very aching heart, hoping that someone had found it. To my amazement, it was there. You found it and I know not who you are, but from a joyful heart, I say God bless you and I know that God will say ...

Editorial: S.C. highways

If you've done any highway driving in South Carolina recently -- and most people have -- then you're aware of the pathetic condition of many roads throughout the Palmetto State. In numerous places, they're literally crumbling, with chunks of concrete or asphalt falling off onto the shoulders. Potholes, which are not only dangerous but also have the potential to cause expensive damage to cars, are common. Everybody agrees something needs to be done to repair the state's highway system, but the government in Columbia is as dysfunctional on this issue as Washington is on many matters.

Parker: Being Bill Kristol

WASHINGTON -- One can understand why The Weekly Standard's William Kristol would try to nullify Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, but smearing all baby boomers in the process seems a stretch of veracity in the service of a blank page.
