Blame it on the cows

Unless you've been holed up in a basement somewhere for the past few years -- if you seldom read a newspaper or watch a news broadcast on television -- you are aware of global warming and the catastrophic effects it could have upon our planet.

Controlling MIL blames wife for ruining relationship with husband, grandchild

Dear Annie: My mother lives by herself. I have not spent a great deal of time with her, but now that she is aging, I feel guilty for not being around. Mom doesn't have any friends, and my siblings barely speak to her. She is a difficult woman.

Y good for young and older

From the time I was 6 to 12 years old, I was in Mother Mayfield Children's Home on Fair Street. We got to go to the Y and do things that we would not have gotten to do. We even got to do it when we got home from the children's home. It is a good cause for folks who do not have the income and kids who could not do it otherwise. I think it's a very good cause. I'm growing older and it would be a place for me to afford to go exercise.

Wage gender gap might be hurting women's retirement plan

Women save a larger percentage of their incomes for retirement than men, but men end up saving more, says a new study by Vanguard. But no matter the gender, Interest.com found that only Nevada retirees are collectively prepared for retirement.

Poorest in many Third World countries send kids to private school

When the Pakistani Taliban survivor Malala Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize this month, it was widely noted that she was an education advocate and that her father was a "headmaster." But the Western media ignored an intriguing angle on this story, argues James Tooley, a professor at Newcastle University in the United Kingdom.

What reality TV doesn’t tell you about home remodeling

Everyone knows reality TV isn't actually reality, right? We know an hour in real life is never that entertaining. There is a lot of editing, slicing and dicing behind the scenes to put those shows together.

Ariail for Oct. 20, 2014

October 20, 2014 | | Ariail


Noted and passed - Oct. 20, 2014

• Thanks to I-20, two U.S. highways and several state highways, we have a lot of commercial vehicles passing through Kershaw County on a daily basis. While most of those vehicles are likely carrying goods for sale here and elsewhere across the country, there's also a good chance hazardous materials are being trucked through as well. So, it's a good thing Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) and the Kershaw County Fire Service have joined forces to create a Special Operations Team (SOT) to deal with any "HazMat" accidents that may occur. According to LF-R Battalion Chief Chris Spitzer, the team ...

The love or hate of air conditioning

It's a funny thing. That's what Mama used to say when something baffled her. Like Mama, I prefer that things make common sense. Otherwise, I'll ponder, figure, study, and try to decipher that funny thing until it's somewhat sensible.

Soft skills

In early September, I attended a meeting of superintendents in Greenville. A major area of discussion was the development of a workforce that would attract sustainable industry to South Carolina and how K-12 education fits into this puzzle. To underscore this discussion, the meeting included a tour of the BMW plant in Spartanburg. Wow! This facility absolutely reflects what a 21st century workplace looks like and what many of our students will need to be prepared to enter. I talk a lot about preparing students for their future and not our past. The BMW tour reminded me why this is ...

Op-Ed: The penny sales tax

On Nov. 4, Kershaw County citizens will have the opportunity to vote on the Kershaw County School District facilities referendum. Because of legislation passed by the South Carolina General Assembly in 2014, voters will be able to decide whether or not a penny sales tax that would be collected for 15 years could be imposed in the county and used by the school district to fund the projects in the referendum.

Camden residents support Graham for city council

I want to voice my support for Jeffrey Graham in his pursuit of a seat upon Camden City Council. I think Jeffrey is a unique candidate with a perspective we need. He is a family man with young children, and because of this I think he can represent the needs of many other young families in the Camden area. While all of the current council members have important and impressive qualities, the direct representation of our younger generations is imperative, and with Walter Long leaving, we do not have such a voice on the council if not for Jeffrey Graham.

Reader supports Reuwer

I am supporting David Reuwer for probate judge in the coming election. In any election, voters must ask a couple of things: does the candidate know what he or she is doing, and does the candidate possess the proper attitude to best serve the people of Kershaw County. Well, Mr. Reuwer is a practicing lawyer and Elgin municipal judge experienced in probate matters including the new, revised probate code. Mr. Reuwer is a hardworking man dedicated to the protection, conservation, and celebration of the historical legacy of Kershaw County. He has a strong need to help others; it seems to ...
