Are too many students majoring in STEM fields?

Shortly before he died in 2011, Steve Jobs famously told President Obama that Apple would have located 200,000 iPhone manufacturing jobs in the United States, rather than China, if he could have found 8,700 qualified industrial engineers in the U.S. This exchange and others like it led to a widespread belief that American technology education was in crisis and that the U.S. was hemorrhaging jobs because our students couldn't or wouldn't do the hard math.

Political piety?

Many people here in Kershaw County -- and across the state and nation, for that matter -- are ready to breathe a sigh of relief when election day in November comes and goes. The political hot air has become stifling, with both parties ramping up negative ads and spinning their positions ad infinitum. With so many cable news networks and websites which make their living off political controversy, it's become virtually impossible to escape the constant drone of Democrats and Republicans.

Reader: ballot measures ‘too grandiose’

It is not my intention to belabor a subject I have already addressed in a previous letter. That being, that I personally am opposed to the two November referendums that would allow the Kershaw County school board to borrow $130 million via bonds, and for the imposition of an additional "penny" sales and or use tax to finance it. Rather, I just want to present the subject from a different perspective, that may simplify or clarify it, or at least bring it a little closer to home and see how it might affect individuals.

Five pieces of garbage you should throw out of your life

It seems like everyone is in a race to be the best -- the best parent, the best spouse, the best neighbor, the best PTA president. To become the best, people often lose sight of the things that really matter. Unfortunately, I've even seen this in my own life. As my husband worked toward a law degree, I pushed forward, day after day, trying my best to be a supportive wife -- the best homemaker, the best mom, the best neighbor, etc. But I often found myself burned out and discouraged. At times, I just couldn't do it.
