May we never get that low to assume that just because of a vote that a bailout is owed or is coming to save you. Can you imagine voting for someone just so you can use your vote against them? Amazingly, some councilwoman on the Detroit City Council thinks her Obama vote will cast her area a granted "bailout" vote. This news segment was aired by Fox News December 5, 2012. Some people with positions do forget just where they ...
I enjoyed watching this year's Christmas parade with (Kershaw County School District Superintendent Dr.) Frank Morgan standing in front of Greenleaf Villa. Reflecting on it now, I must share with your readers the fact that there is nothing like a small town Christmas parade. Having personally participated in a more than a dozen, I can honestly speak of the joy and excitement of being in such a parade.

I was handling my emotions pretty well until Patsy Topping picked up my sweet foster dog Lindy and took her inside of the transport bus. That's when I got a little misty eyed. Michael Schofield would soon be driving Lindy and 14 other dogs up north to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons in New York. "Oh, she's a hugger," Patsy said warmly. Lindy, a former short-term resident of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter, loves to be held and snuggled. As a first time foster Mom, the experience couldn't have been any better or more ...

Karl and Kay Allen of Black River Rescue, and Lucy, part of their four-legged family and co-workers, present a special children's program at the Kershaw County Library. The program included information on their dogs' special talents and what the Allens and their dogs do. The Allens taught the children to "hug a tree" if they ever happen to become lost in the woods because body scents populate and remain trapped under limbs and branches, which can help bloodhounds find and rescue them. Bloodhounds not only have super-sensitive noses -- more than 4 million scent cells -- they also have floppy ears ...
