Young volunteers learn about KershawHeath

Why would more than a dozen teen and college students spend a portion of their summer vacation volunteering at KershawHealth medical center? For some -- especially younger students -- it's a chance to gain valuable work experience. Others are looking for opportunities that can help give life to a medical school applicant's personal statement, or add valuable "points" to school or scholarship applications to give them a competitive edge. For most, though, it's the opportunity to learn more about healthcare and to get that all-important insider's view of the industry.

Real world doesn't offer the same atmosphere as college

Dear Annie: I had a fabulous time in college. I was president of my sorority, a peer mentor at our advising center and active in many organizations. I also was granted many awards and honors. I loved rushing around with little sleep and juggling many things on my plate. Now my life is a different story.

Scrapbook -- Aug. 24, 2011

"Experienced jeans" are back again. Today's young people will call my school days "the dark ages." But way back then, our mothers worked nights to patch our school clothes. And we tried to hide the patches. That is probably where the idea of BIG book bags came from. We wanted something BIG to hide the patches. Patches meant that our parents did not have money for nice clothes.

‘This I Believe’

For the past couple of years, our district has designated one book for summer reading for secondary students. I've really liked this approach. It has generated a lot of enthusiasm and gotten entire families involved. This year's book, This I Believe II, is a collection of personal essays by a very diverse group of people, ranging from legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma to author Studs Terkel. The book got me to thinking; if I was to write an essay about what I believe about education, what would I say?

• Here in Kershaw County, we don't think about bridges much, unless it's the spans crossing the Lynches and Wateree rivers on U.S. 1, I-20 and other roads. Many bridges in our county are small, made of wood or pipes used as culverts. They cross streams and branches of creeks and -- according to our recent two-part story -- not in the greatest shape. Some state-owned bridges are in the process of being repaired or replaced with state and/or federal funds. But many others are owned by the county. All but two currently open bridges that cross bodies of ...
