The house

The house has always been there. She will, most likely, always be there. She has never wavered from her foundation or from her purpose. She has always endured. She has reared our children, celebrated our joyous occasions, wept for our unfortunate circumstances, helped us bury our dead.

Diversity, tolerance as American as apple pie

The American public air waves have been dominated recently surrounding the controversy involving the proposed building of a Moslem mosque near Ground Zero. The controversy has been vigorously debated on both sides of the religious, racial and political spectrum. It appears that everyone has an opinion about whether the mosque should be built.

Sheheen needs to address critical questions

Mr. Sheheen has not answered questions regarding his positions on two critical issues: 1) How would you treat the attorney general's lawsuit to challenge the Obama health care issue? Would you de-fund the lawsuit moving forward or support it? and 2) Are you planning to reapply for the TARP funds that Gov Sanford refused? There are strings attached to the TARP funds: the states must spend it according to federal government prescription causing South Carolina to be "owned" by the federal government, thereby giving up states' rights?

State has problem with food stamp system

I am so amazed that people who apparently don't need food stamps for food can swap them for money, alcohol and apparently whatever they want, and even more amazed at the proprietors would exchange them illegally.

Noted and passed

• Republican Senate candidate Rand Paul of Kentucky is locked in a close race with Democrat Jack Conway. Paul, a free-market advocate, wants to do away with the Internal Revenue Service and simplify the tax code. He wants to replace the income tax with a national sales tax, an idea that's not bad but will have a hard time getting traction. But he is exactly right in saying the federal tax code is impossibly complex and onerous.

Music education proved to make smarter students

For years, parents have posed the question, "Does music really make my child smarter?" The answer is yes! There have been countless studies conducted to solidify this argument. Music influences humans in ways that are instant and long lasting. Music can not only increase your IQ, but also has an influence on memory and the way people learn.
