Noted and passed

• We're glad to see Davis Love III picked as the captain of the U.S. Ryder Cup team for the 2012 matches. Love, who grew up the son of a highly regarded teaching pro in Charlotte, is one of the best-liked players on the PGA tour and has won 20 tournaments, including the PGA Championship. The 2012 matches will be played at Medinah Country Club near Chicago, and Love will be trying to stem a tide that has resulted in the Americans losing six of the last eight matches to the Europeans, including last fall's defeat in Wales.

Holliday's giving spirit

Professional athletes often seem to make as many headlines for their off-the-field shenanigans as they do for their skill in the playing arena. Sports fans have come to expect that extracurricular news about athletes generally is going to be bad rather than good. That's why it's so refreshing to watch Camden native Vonnie Holliday go about his good works. When you read about Holliday, it's not about a DUI arrest or a nightclub brawl or a dog-fighting incident, but rather about one of his charitable initiatives. All Kershaw County citizens can share in the good news that ...
