Reader supports Burns for county council chair

The military is known for producing leaders of strong character and ethics. Throughout his military career, Julian Burns proved himself to be one of those successful leaders. You don't earn the rank of major general if you're not among the best the military has to offer … and then you don't go on to be successful at an international corporation unless you have the agility and skills to deliver every single day in the tough business world of today.

Zemp Stadium

Zemp Stadium is celebrating its 85th anniversary, making it the longest continuously operating high school football stadium in the state. As we look back at its history -- as we did Wednesday -- it is also worth taking a second look at its possible future. One outcome is replacement, part of a pair of Kershaw County School District referenda on the Nov. 4 ballot. Under that scenario, Zemp would be replaced at the Camden High School (CHS) athletic complex on Ehrenclou Drive, leaving the original facility to a nebulous future. The cost of a new stadium is estimated at $4.6 million ...

Ten things nobody told you about being married

You've heard that marriage isn't easy, that there are going to be trials, surprises and changes of plans along the way. People also tell you it's a blast and the best decision they've ever made. But did anyone tell you being married is also awkward? And sweaty? Being married is a lot of things, some of which no one tells you about ahead of time. Here's a head's up of a few things you probably haven't heard before.

'The Best of Me' saves Sparks' worst for last

Imagine that someone pulled a drain plug on a majestic mountain lake. At first, you wouldn't notice anything amiss, save for a low gurgle echoing from deep under the water. But as the water line dropped, exposing the soggy shore, your heart would drop, and by the time the lake vanished away, leaving sludge and long-forgotten trash and desperate fish flopping around gasping for life, you'd realize the tragedy before you.

Stay-at-home moms: They're doing more than what you think

I have to admit that, before I became a stay-at-home mom, I had some preconceived ideas of what that job would be like: dinner on the table by 6PM, time spent making crafts and cherished pieces of artwork with the little ones, the house completely organized and just general peace and order all around. Needless to say, I was in for a rude awakening when I actually got the privilege of becoming a stay-at-home mom. I would describe my days now as beautiful chaos. As much as I try to have some semblance of order in the home, it doesn ...

Three secrets to a lasting marriage

The reality is marriage isn't always bliss. Marriage is about ups and downs. Some couples are ready to give up on each other when times are too difficult. They believe walking away from the marriage is easier than confronting the problems as a team. But if the love is pure and strong, then love can overcome anything. And if you have children, walking away from marriage without trying to make it work can set a bad example for them.

Three reasons you’ll almost love 'The Book of Life'

"The Book of Life" has been a project I've been pulling for since I first heard Guillermo del Toro was attached to a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) project.
