Imagine being a little boy growing up at the Hobkirk Inn when its formal gardens, designed by Scottish landscape architect James Crammond, were in their prime. The garden was laid out in a large rectangle with wide paths to run down and nooks and crannies in which to play hide and seek.

Photo cutline -- A stiff upper lip -- Bethune Elementary School Principal Doby Gordon recently sported a clean-shaven upper lip for the first time in seven years. BES students Timothy Smith, Brandie Freeman and Brad Freeman earned the honor of shaving Gordon's mustache off for having read the most books during the 1991/92 school year. The trio read between 11 and 13 books each. Gordon's mustache is already growing back in.

• A major tip of the C-I hat to newly installed District 5 Kershaw County Councilman Dennis Arledge, briefly hospitalized in recent days and, therefore unable to attend his first council meeting.

Later that afternoon, at the official swearing-in ceremony, those gathered to see others take their oaths applauded enthusiastically when shown a picture of Arledge taking ...
My parents, according to the world's definition of "cool," were not. Neither drank nor did either ever possess a credit card. Groceries and clothing were paid for in cash, utilities paid by check, and the only monthly payments they ever allowed themselves were a mortgage for a house, a short-term loan for another farm, and a couple of cars bought, over time, and paid for quickly.
