4-H Challenge winners

Two local 4-H teams won awards at the State 4-H Healthy Lifestyles Challenge Event held at the S.C. State Fair. The 4-H Healthy Lifestyles Challenge is modeled after such competitions as the Food Network's "Iron Chef," where they must create a healthy dish.

The challenge also allowed the 4-H'ers to demonstrate their culinary and food safety skills to the judges. The contest was sponsored by S.C. 4-H, Zest Quest and ...

Noted and passed for Nov. 28, 2011

• We haven't been very impressed with the "Occupy" protestors at different sites across the United States -- most don't appear to have much of an idea of what they're protesting -- but unless there is something that doesn't meet the eye, police officers at the University of California-Davis used poor judgment in directing pepper spray at students who appear to be passively sitting on the ground. Further examination might provide new evidence warranting the officers' actions, but at first blush it appeared inexcusable.

The not-so-super committee

An old joke says that a camel is a horse designed by committee. That's more than I can say for the congressional "supercommittee." It was supposed to come up with a proposal to cut the deficit. It didn't even produce a camel. Just a lot of the stuff horses and camels leave behind.

Creating prosperity with our appetites

The holiday season is upon us, and while we may see, hear and read admonitions and tips for healthy holiday eating, I'd like for us to think about healthy eating in terms of a healthy South Carolina economy. According to Dana Beach with the S.C. Coastal Conservation League, "…less than 10 percent of what we eat in South Carolina is grown in the state. The rest is imported." For the holidays and everyday, we should be serving up foods that create jobs for South Carolinians, and not send our food dollars out of state or even out of ...

The hand that rocks the ballot box

In their denouncements of the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby ruling, Hillary Clinton and other Democrats have been accused of pandering to single women -- the so-called "Beyoncé voter" demographic, as one Fox News commentator sniggered.

A disturbing trend

We wrote recently of the disturbing trend in the White House of spinning every issue through press spokesmen rather than engaging in open questioning about issues of interest to Americans. A lack of transparency isn't limited to the federal government, as the S.C. Supreme Court has recently issued two troubling rulings which limit public access in the Palmetto State.
