We are disappointed to hear of Agnes Slayman's resignation as superintendent of the Chester County School District (CCSD). Kershaw County School District administrators, teachers, staff and students may remember Slayman from her 20 years here as a high school assistant principal, middle and high school principal and, finally, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction. She left the district to become CCSD superintendent in January 2012.
Names have always been interesting and fun when it comes to Lita "Squeaky" Wagensteen. From the horse "Goldman Sox" to the dog "Zsa Zsa Goober," Squeaky and her late husband, Dr. Stephen Wagensteen, have generated hundreds of smiles with their creative dog names. And they've saved hundreds of dog lives by their generosity.
It was somewhere near the end of summer when it just come to me: perhaps my writing days were over. It was time to just give up the ghost and move on from making a living as a writer and just settle into handling daily problems.
Nothing profound or reflected is intended in these brief comments. Rather, a simple observation and a prediction. The observation is simply that our local populace (we) have some of our priorities wrong.

The 19th Annual Carolina Downhome Blues Festival, presented by the Fine Arts Center (FAC) of Kershaw County starts Thursday.
Fire Fest celebrates its 20th anniversary Saturday at the nearly renovated Rhame Arena in downtown Camden. It celebrates this anniversary with much of its traditional fare -- the 9 a.m. parade of fire trucks, ambulances and other emergency vehicles down Broad Street (this year, beginning at Rutledge Street, according to the event's Facebook page); side-by-side burn demonstrations, showing how important residential sprinkler systems can be; the annual Explorers competition; and lots of vendors, food and other fun.
WASHINGTON -- In the spirit of charity prompted by Pope Francis' visit to the U.S., let's not call them bigots.
Last month, I wrote about how the extreme temperatures in June, the current drought conditions throughout the summer and the probability of bugs attacking trees is likely, all of which are wreaking havoc on our community trees. As of this writing, we've had gone 21 consecutive days with no measurable rain fall within the city center. Today (Thursday), it is finally raining, but we are still way behind in adequate soil moisture. Unless trees have been receiving supplemental water via irrigation systems, they are still stressed and susceptible to insect pests and disease.
