Mainstream media

Like many others across this country, we were surprised -- maybe "shocked" would be a better word -- when Sen. John McCain named then-Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. McCain was already facing headwinds in the general election, and the choice of Palin gave him a quick boost in the polls. But as people found out more about the chief executive of the frozen state, they decided she didn't have the qualifications to stand a heartbeat away from the presidency, as some like to refer to the vice presidency. We shared those views; while we found her an engaging ...

Recent property reappraisal

I recently received my updated property appraisal notice and was quite surprised. I was surprised with the reassessment because the value is higher than previous years. And although we've maintained the property in good shape we have not made any expansions or improvements. This property was acquired in 2005 and, based on my limited understanding of appraisals and reappraisals and the associated state laws, my belief would be that it was based on the so-called and recently controversial "point of sale" appraisal. The increased value is even more surprising since this property was acquired at or near the peak ...

It has become somewhat of an art for me, that of studying Southern culture and deciphering what makes us different from others as well as downright peculiar among ourselves.

The storytellers of Dillon County

Our family has spent many a pleasant summer day with several families from the Dillon area and the experience is always enjoyable and the manner in which they address their friends, neighbors and kinfolk is like taking a step back in the "Old South." Everyone seems to have a prefix or you are a tourist just stopping by.

Team player

Lugoff-Elgin High School Principal Worth Thomasson braces himself for a splash of icy cold water as L-EHS football players and cheerleaders look on. Thomasson agreed to be "dunked" if L-EHS students raised $5000 by Thursday morning to donate to the United Way of Kershaw County. Students ended up raising $5300. "We wanted something that would get the kids involved in with a team aspect ... It kind of goes along with the United Way spirit, you can give a dollar, and that dollar goes a long way," Thomasson said. See more pictures in our Localife section.

Noted and passed - Aug. 25, 2014

• Every now and then a story just makes you want to puff up with pride. We had one Wednesday, and we'll have another this Wednesday, both on the same subject: the renaming of the I-20 bridge over the Wateree River for Kershaw County's three medal of honor winners. Richmond Hobson Hilton, John C. Villepigue and Donald Leroy Truesdell are heroes out of history in no uncertain terms. In our preview story, readers learned that Hilton charged gunners firing at his squad, firing until his ammunition was spent, killing six enemies and capturing 10, but lost an arm as ...
