Tootsie Roll drive

The local Knights of Columbus Council is conducting its annual Columbus Hope Drive through Oct. 7. During the drive, the knights are giving away Tootsie Rolls in front of Kershaw County stores and accepting donations for people with intellectual disabilities.

Pictured from left are Mike Williams, KOC, Elgin Mayor Melissa Emmons, who received the first Tootsie Roll and made the first donation this year, and Fred Florian, KOC.

Have a successful school year

High self-esteem: Self-esteem is how you feel about yourself. Having high self-esteem means you like yourself and feel confident in your ability to meet life's challenges. Low self-esteem means you do not feel good about yourself, and you are most likely to be influenced by negative peer pressure, not positive peer pressure.
