Washington double-speak

Ernest F. Hollings served decades in the U.S. Senate from South Carolina, and he was one of those who were in Washington during a time when politicians from both parties were still willing to step across the aisle and compromise. That seems long ago. But Hollings, despite decades in Washington, never lost his penchant for picturing himself as an outsider. In speeches to Rotary clubs and other organizations across the Palmetto State, he railed against "those boys up in Washington," as if he had never stepped foot in the nation's capital.

America a better place because of men like Charles Murray

Young volunteers learn about KershawHeath

Why would more than a dozen teen and college students spend a portion of their summer vacation volunteering at KershawHealth medical center? For some -- especially younger students -- it's a chance to gain valuable work experience. Others are looking for opportunities that can help give life to a medical school applicant's personal statement, or add valuable "points" to school or scholarship applications to give them a competitive edge. For most, though, it's the opportunity to learn more about healthcare and to get that all-important insider's view of the industry.

Real world doesn't offer the same atmosphere as college

Dear Annie: I had a fabulous time in college. I was president of my sorority, a peer mentor at our advising center and active in many organizations. I also was granted many awards and honors.

Scrapbook -- Aug. 24, 2011

"Experienced jeans" are back again. Today's young people will call my school days "the dark ages." But way back then, our mothers worked nights to patch our school clothes. And we tried to hide the patches. That is probably where the idea of BIG book bags came from. We wanted something BIG to hide the patches. Patches meant that our parents did not have money for nice clothes.

Editorial: Friendship Nine

About an hour north of Camden, nine civil rights protestors from the 1960s are scheduled today to receive a measure of justice after being jailed for staging a lunch counter protest in Rock Hill more than a half-century ago. Known as the Friendship Nine because they attended the now-defunct Friendship Junior College, the men protested a segregated lunch counter at a McCrory's store in 1961; they had decided prior to their actions that after being arrested, they would refuse bail and instead serve jail sentences as a way to spotlight their actions and the injustice leading to the sit-in.
