Teacher unsure how to deal with gun threats

Dear Annie: I am an elementary school teacher. This year I have two 7-year-old students with major behavior issues.

Carolina Cup

Those of us who live in Kershaw County often tend to take for granted the Carolina Cup, which is known across South Carolina and the Southeast as one of the premier sporting and social events of each year. While many natives don't attend the race and might grumble good-naturedly about traffic tie-ups on Cup Saturday, thousands upon thousands of people flock here each year to attend the races, and that is an incalculable benefit for Camden.
