Holiday fun

Jackson School hosted a Christmas-time celebration Dec. 8. The chorus began with a Christmas concert followed by a Christmas presentation from Jackson's Lego Robotics team. After the reading of "The Polar Express," Jackson had a special visit from Santa. During the visit Santa posed for photos with students and passed out candy canes. Students also had the opportunity to make Christmas crafts. This was a spectacular event enjoyed by all at Jackson, said Principal Matia Goodwin (second row, center), surrounded by students (first row, from left) Landon Goodwin, Alyson Goodwin, Tobias Miller, (second row) Luis Hernandez, Kathryn Knight, Santa ...

KCSD Christmas memories

Last year at this time, my column was about my own favorite school Christmas memories. Apparently, folks actually read it, because a number of people I encountered during the holidays last year shared their own with me. So this year, I asked staff and community members to share a favorite Christmas memory in the Kershaw County schools with me. Following are ones I received that I especially enjoyed:

Let citizens speak by referendum

A few weeks ago, I read a letter in the Chronicle-Independent that presented a good point. Many of us have strong feelings about the proposed sports complex but we are too busy to take time to express them. The writer specifically mentioned young people with children. We are all bound together as a community and our lives are affected by decisions relating to things within the community; therefore, we all should participate in those decisions.

Letters to Santa -- 2011

Dear Santa,

Help me understand…

I have memorized Lindsey Graham's response to me. He says, "My job as your United States Senator is to represent your interests. While I cannot guarantee we will see eye-to-eye on every issue, I can guarantee you I will give your thoughts and opinions the consideration they deserve." I want to feel encouraged by that promise and to believe that we are still a nation that can entertain different perspectives and debate without rancor or preconceived notions. Since, however, Graham has not responded to my concerns with convincing or in fact any concrete details, most recently about the wetlands ...

Noted and passed -- Dec. 19, 2011

• We observed last week that Republican candidates for president had no reason to subject themselves to a debate moderated by Donald Trump, who has continually threatened to run for the White House himself. They all apparently decided the same thing, and the debate has now been cancelled. Trump, meanwhile, says he's keeping his options open to mount a third-party presidential bid. If he does, we predict it will be met with the same lack of enthusiasm as his proposed debate.
