Absentee father

I never knew my father; he died when I was five months old, leaving my mother with me and my 3-year-old brother. We were not his first family. He had nine children by his first wife, eight girls and one boy -- five little graves attested to the mortality rate in earlier times. Many first wives died before their husbands, not surprising since childbirth was so dangerous and the mortality rate so high. I cannot imagine having more children -- especially since my father was 63 when I was born and my mother was 40. Back then, people just had the number ...

Spotting Venus

Venus appears as a black dot transiting the Sun in this photograph taken Tuesday by Ed Roberts of Dalzell. Roberts -- who plays tuba with the Camden Community Concert Band -- took the photo through welder's glass using a Kodak Easyshare camera with a 21x wide-angle lens. In most pictures published around the globe, Venus appears at the "bottom" of the Sun. Roberts said that is because those pictures were taken through telescopes which flip the photograph. Since Roberts took the picture with a regular camera, Venus is seen traveling across the "top" of the Sun, what someone would see with ...

Mrs. Brazell's ELA classes at Lugoff-Elgin Middle School celebrated Decades Day . Students -- such as (from left) Camille Sullivan, Sarah Hardin, Molli Smith, Tyjah Steele, Kara Hayes, Madison Guthrie and Katelyn Vandevander -- researched different aspects of the 1960s, 70s, 80s, and 90s and created Glogsters to present their research. Students dressed in fashion from their decade or as a famous person from their decade. They created a timeline in the hallway and plotted different events, and created a time capsule to represent items from 2000-2011. In class, students presented their decades' research. It was exciting day for all!
