Mummy, dearest

Sixth-grade students at Camden Middle School recently enjoyed Mummy Day, the culmination of an Ancient Egyptian unit. Students spent the day engaged in Egyptian activities across the curriculum. They mummified chicken drummettes, made life-sized sarcophagi, created pyramids, virtually mummified a pharaoh and played Ancient Egyptian games. Here, students Avery Barnes and Zoe Smothers use a triple beam balance to mass their chicken drummette before the mummification process.

How WikiLeaks can make us less free

It is symbolically appropriate that among other charges in Sweden WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange is accused of having unprotected sex with two women in Stockholm. I don't know whether the world-famous Internet whistleblower is guilty or not, but the allegation certainly fits his reputation for world-class recklessness.

Tax facts

Voters in Kershaw County and nationwide have been bombarded with news during the past few days regarding the compromise between the Obama administration and Congressional Republicans on tax policy. Democrats in Washington, who for nearly two years have been accusing the GOP of obstructionism, are the people in this instance who are throwing up roadblocks. To listen to them tell it, lower-income Americans are being saddled with a lion's share of the American tax burden while upper-income citizens walk away on April 15 scot-free. So here are a few facts:

KershawHeath provides outstanding care

Having recently had surgery at KershawHealth, I would like to compliment our hospital and staff. How fortunate we are in Kershaw County to have a facility that provides excellent, compassionate care. What could have been an uncomfortable Thanksgiving Day was actually a pleasant experience thanks to the staff at KershawHealth. Each person I encountered was careful and caring, and each was absolutely committed to the job at hand, and certainly to the patient. As a matter of fact, several friends and family members visiting from Columbia remarked that when they need hospital care, they will come here … and with pride ...

Christmas carols offer more than just a catchy tune

I love this time of the year! Riding through town, seeing the Christmas Lights, and seeing the hustle-and-bustle of holiday shopping, but most of all, I love the Christmas music. I don't know what it is about that type of music, but it seems to always put people in a better mood. After doing some reading on traditional Christmas music, I found some very interesting facts.

Bush was notified, the exact time that the second plane crashed into the towers, the exact time that the Pentagon was struck and more events that occured on that day. Pine Tree Hill students observed 9/11 by wearing red, white and blue, and they had special lessons about the importance of that day.

I didn't marry my soul mate, Part 2

About a year ago, I wrote an article titled, "I didn't marry my soul mate."

During those times I wondered what my life would have been like had I married "the other guy."

The role of rocks in the Gaelic nations

The earth is the third rock from the sun. Ireland and Scotland combined are 84 percent of that chunk. Visiting these grand lands confirms that notion.

Tips to get your kids to clean up after themselves

Banging your head against the wall and murmuring bad words under your breath is counterproductive. Kids are messy. They just are. They have better things to do than pick up their messes.
