Noted and passed - Dec. 23, 2013

• It's sad to note that 2013 has been an "average" year when it comes to mass killings and victims in the United States. There have been 29 mass killings with a total of 147 victims, which is in line with other years since 2006. A few decades ago, nobody could have predicted such sobering figures; now, unfortunately, we Americans live with the threat of such violence on a daily basis.

Jingle Bella for United Way

Blaney Elementary School (BES) kindergartners, with the help of Jingle Bella the elf, helped to raise $125 for the United Way of Kershaw County. Kindergarten teacher assistant Katherine Rogers got inspiration for the fundraiser after purchasing Elf on a Shelf, Jingle Bella, for her family.

Each student who purchased an autograph would also have a photo taken with Jingle Bella. A check for ...

Nelson Mandela, South Carolina, and ‘A better life for all’

"Imagine you're the head of, say, a big German manufacturing company, and you're thinking of putting a sizable number of jobs here in South Carolina," said a South Carolina business leader to me recently. "And then you open up your morning newspaper and see this kind of knucklehead stuff. Is it an absolute deal breaker? Hopefully not. But it certainly doesn't help."

A moment of thanks

I wanted to take a moment to thank all of the churches, civic groups, businesses, and others that partnered with our schools to provide winter coats, gifts, and food for children in need during this season of giving. There is much to value about this community, but one of the things I value most is how this community always comes together when there is a need to be met. Please know how personally appreciative I am of everyone's generosity.

Parker right on Pope

I want to thank you and congratulate Kathleen Parker on her level-headed column about Pope Francis. She successfully flattened the hysteria that has blown up about some of Pope Francis' admonitions. Christians are not called to defend the free market. Common sense and everyone else calls them do to so. But Christians are called to leave nothing to chance when it comes to human suffering.

The left lane

A Greenville legislator has pre-filed a bill in the General Assembly that would prohibit motorists from driving slowly in the left lane, thus holding up traffic. It would also ban drivers from using cell phones in the left lane and would make it illegal to drive five miles per hour slower than the posted limit while in the left lane. And it would outlaw ever driving in the left lane except for passing other cars.

At the close of the 19th century, a German named Marklin introduced several series of gauged toy train sets that included ready-to-use track sections, locomotives, cars and accessories, plus enticing add-on pieces for future Christmas and birthday gifts.
