I teach scrapbooking and sell acid-free albums and supplies. Therefore, I was surprised to see the article "Easy ways to reuse and recycle holiday gift wrap" in the Friday, Dec. 30, C-I. One of the uses listed for discarded wrapping paper was to "Use in scrapbooking or as an inexpensive matting for photos." Gift wrap is not acid-free and will cause photos and other paper keepsakes to turn brown and/or deteriorate. The other uses listed sound like really good ideas.

Having the opportunity each month to write on an array of topics continues to deliver to me absolute satisfaction. Chosen subject matter usually encompasses certain resolute thoughts that have incited my interest or stirred my conscience in some manner. This month has proven to be no different except for, perhaps, the degree in which my awareness and inference of a fastidious topic has been kindled; the painstaking topic of war. Last week, we took in the Stephen Spielberg movie, "War Horse." The story has a universal message; one that portrays to its viewers the horror of war in which men ...

One of the things I enjoy most about what I do is being invited to cities around the country. Whether I'm speaking at conferences, banding birds or taking part in archaeological digs, I look forward to being able to spend time in places that are different from small town South Carolina. One of the draws for me is getting to see the way other places address conservation issues. I absolutely love seeing the various approaches to environmental issues by municipalities and hearing ideas from diverse groups of conservationists. My most recent trip was no different, giving me hope that ...

Attorney General Eric Holder's recent statement that race plays a part in some Americans' opposition to President Obama's policies has stirred strong reaction from both liberals and conservatives, and reaction has highlighted the fact -- no surprise here -- that blacks and whites often look at issues of race differently. We suspect that Kershaw County would mirror the national opinions of a recent Gallup poll in which people were asked whether this country's criminal justice system is biased against blacks. More than two-thirds of whites said no, while about the same percentage of blacks said yes.
