Noted and passed

Multiple sources are saying Katie Couric will leave her post as anchor of the "CBS Evening News," with the show mired in third place far behind rivals NBC and ABC. Couric was lured away from a long and successful tenure at NBC's "Today" show, and she is said to be eying a syndicated TV talk show. What works on a feature-type show such as "Today" doesn't always translate to success in the anchor chair. But we hope Couric finds success in whatever she does as she seems like a pleasant sort.

Economic development and school choice

A few weeks back, my wife showed me a newspaper article about a television ad running in North Carolina by a group called "NC Together."

At the end of the ad, a picture of a "Welcome to South Carolina" sign is flashed and the narrator says, "There is another way ...

A better way to reform welfare

When President Clinton signed landmark welfare-reform legislation in 1996, he said it would "end welfare as we know it." Wrong verb. More accurately, it changed welfare as we know it.

Freedom to snoop

Conservatives express shock and horror over political correctness, which they roughly define as the Orwellian suppression of any frank discussion about issues that liberals hold dear. But conservatives practice their own PC, too. "Freedom fries," anyone?

Junior prospectors

Midway Elementary School third-graders including Ana Lucena and Jeffry Moody learned about properties of rocks and minerals and how to use those properties (like hardness, color, shape, luster) to identify them as part of a science unit of study. The students were treated to a mobile mining experience to cap their study when Diamond Del's Gem Mining Adventure visited the school. Each student was given a tray which they rinsed and searched for rocks and minerals, taking any that they found back to class to identify. Fourth- and fifth-graders were invited to participate, too. Each child was able to ...

L-EHS student concerned about animal shelter

I am writing this letter about the concerns of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter. Our animal shelter has its pros and cons. The benefits of an animal shelter is it provides protection for those individuals that cannot afford the proper care for their animal. Think about it: what would our city look like if we did not have an animal shelter? There would be dogs and cats running around freely. Every day I ride down Hwy. 1, I see a helpless dog on the side of the rode with its ribs sticking out from lack of nutrients.

Power, divided

We've always believed the United States government works best when power is divided -- that is, with a president from one party and a Congress controlled by the opposite party. As of now, of course, we have a Democratic president and a split Congress, with the House of Representatives controlled by Republicans and the Senate dominated by Democrats. There are multiple forecasting models out there for the upcoming election, with most of them giving the GOP a better-than-even chance of gaining a majority in the Senate while retaining control of the House.
