Civil lawsuits

When Gov. Nikki Haley delivered her State of the State address recently, she promised to try to create more jobs in South Carolina, block unions from expanding and a few other things. As you might expect, her speech was generally met with approval from fellow Republicans (though there's no love lost between Haley and many GOP legislators) and criticism from Democrats. But of all the things she mentioned, the one with the most potential for improving the climate in this state was her proposal for a "loser pays" system of civil lawsuits.

• The concept of youth and job shadowing has been around for years now, and its merits are as valuable as ever. Kershaw County middle-schoolers will be allowed to accompany a parent, relative or neighbor on the job Thursday to learn more about the workplace. The primary goal is to allow these seventh- and eighth-graders to find out about careers and jobs and the expectations that come with them. For students who are unable to participate, the Kershaw County School District provides virtual job shadowing activities in the classroom. The job shadowing experience can be an enriching one, and we hope ...

Gingrich’s ‘umbrage card’ trick

What do you do when you're a presidential candidate like Newt Gingrich who lugs so much baggage that your baggage has baggage? That's easy. You reach up your sleeve and.... Oh, yes. You play the umbrage card. You fume and fuss with outrage over the question and hope no one demands an answer.

10 signs your emotional life may need a tune-up

Being emotionally healthy is like owning a well-running car. If your vehicle is taken care of, you can get through construction zones, traffic and bumpy dirt roads with no trouble. If your car is a run-down old clunker, you won't be able to rely on it to get you where you are going on your terms. This comparison also holds true for a well-functioning brain. A good therapist is like your brain's mechanic. Here are 10 signs that indicate a professional might be of some help in tuning up your life:

Terrorists seize home to Iraq's second largest oil refinery

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has recently taken over the Iraqi cities of Mosul and Baiji, the second of which is the home of Iraq's largest oil refinery. The accompanying infographic shows the development of ISIS and its most recent attacks. ISIS pledges allegiance to al-Qaida, and as ABC News reports, it is proving to be the undoing of the United States' decadelong efforts to establish democracy in the embattled country. With the country's oil supply at risk, will the West intervene again? Is the fight against terrorism becoming a lost cause?

• What a boon the S.C. Equine Park has been for Camden and Kershaw County! And now, with word that a second, larger covered arena will be built -- possibly as soon as this winter -- the park should ultimately bring even more people to the area than it already does. Think on this: even with the arena already in place, the equine park has been booked an average of 30 weekends each year, with an economic impact of $4 million. Imagine if, with the second arena, the park could be booked 45 or even 50 weekends each year. How much would ...

What the president said

Last week, I called for going after ISIL (or ISIS or IS, the Islamic State as it wants to call itself now), in full force. Admittedly, I wasn't very specific about that. Some may have thought I meant "boots on the ground," as opposed to only the air strikes the U.S. has already participated in.
