Replace recreation office

As a long-time citizen of Kershaw County, I am embarrassed by the condition of our recreation department office.

The awesome English language

The rules for correct grammar usage are many. They, however, are equaled to or exceeded by the exceptions. No one believes me when I tell them I never write without a dictionary and thesaurus by my side; after all, I taught English for many years. One student asked me, "When are we going to do something else except grammar?" I am not sure I consoled her when I replied, "We will soon study literature and composition." She sighed with relief until I said, "However, grammar plays a part in both of these." I should have mentioned it is also a ...

The stories they told

My parents told great stories. I've told you that. How they would both weave long, intriguing tales from not much of a story or one that was so good to begin with that it took little embellishment.
