The 4-H Healthy Lifestyles Challenge is modeled after such competitions as the Food Network's "Iron Chef," where they must create a healthy dish. Team members had to prepare a dish, make an oral presentation, interpret a food label, plan a menu utilizing the dish and prepare a fitness plan. The challenge also allowed the 4-H'ers to demonstrate their culinary and food safety skills to the judges. The contest was sponsored by S.C. 4-H, Zest Quest and ...
WASHINGTON -- As the GOP candidates have been thrashing it out in debates that seem to occur every couple of hours or so, one almost misses the iconic wink that enraged or beguiled the nation a political season ago.
• We haven't been very impressed with the "Occupy" protestors at different sites across the United States -- most don't appear to have much of an idea of what they're protesting -- but unless there is something that doesn't meet the eye, police officers at the University of California-Davis used poor judgment in directing pepper spray at students who appear to be passively sitting on the ground. Further examination might provide new evidence warranting the officers' actions, but at first blush it appeared inexcusable.
An old joke says that a camel is a horse designed by committee. That's more than I can say for the congressional "supercommittee." It was supposed to come up with a proposal to cut the deficit. It didn't even produce a camel. Just a lot of the stuff horses and camels leave behind.
Lugoff-Elgin High School has announced its honor rolls for the first nine-week period.
The holiday season is upon us, and while we may see, hear and read admonitions and tips for healthy holiday eating, I'd like for us to think about healthy eating in terms of a healthy South Carolina economy. According to Dana Beach with the S.C. Coastal Conservation League, "…less than 10 percent of what we eat in South Carolina is grown in the state. The rest is imported." For the holidays and everyday, we should be serving up foods that create jobs for South Carolinians, and not send our food dollars out of state or even out of ...

Hydeia Broadbent was abandoned at birth at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada in Las Vegas where Patricia and Loren Broadbent adopted her as an infant. Although her HIV condition was congenital, she was not diagnosed as HIV-positive with advancement to AIDS until age three. The prognosis was that she would not live past the age of five. Now at the age of 27, Hydeia spends her time spreading the message of HIV/AIDS awareness and prevention by promoting abstinence, safe-sex practices (for people who choose to have sex), and the initiative "Knowing Your HIV/AIDS Status."
• It was good, if still mixed, news from KershawHealth a week ago that January's financials looked a bit better than they have recently. The healthcare organization still posted a loss for the month -- as it has every month for some time now -- but only of $84,000. Compare that to $902,000 in losses for October 2013 alone and that is very good news. KershawHealth has a long way to go to combat a projected $32 million in operational losses by Fiscal Year 2018, less than five years away. However, last week's meeting also revealed that the KershawHealth ...
