• We were intrigued by a recent study showing that baby boomer and older women generally earn less, have less money in retirement and are expected to live longer than men, yet they are much more likely to donate to charity and to give more generously then males.

A lot has happened in South Carolina since the State Integrity Investigation ranked our state among the most at risk for corruption. In March I wrote about this report, some efforts that had been made, and some bills that I had filed to improve our ethics laws. Here is an update.

Noted and passed - April 20, 2015

• Last week's seizure by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of Old Armory Steak & Seafood on Rutledge Street marks at least the temporary loss of one of Camden and Kershaw County's premier restaurants.

Locals cheered the Old Armory's opening in 2006 so soon after the closing of the previous tenant, The Paddock. Many people and businesses have celebrated the holidays, proms, anniversaries, engagements, weddings, birthdays and more at the Old ...

Rich: The chainsaw assault

To be honest, I was more than a mite worried. I was plenty worried. My husband, raised not in the South or in the country, wanted a chainsaw. The one farm accessory which has brought down many a man. From an early age, I was taught respect for that chewing, sawing, respect-for-no-man power tool.

Morgan: Challenges

I was extremely pleased earlier this year to be invited with school board Chairman Ron Blackmon to participate in the Kershaw County Council planning retreat. It was a very informative experience for both of us. At the retreat, I was asked to outline what I see as the school district's most critical challenges. I've since been asked by several other groups to do the same presentation, so I thought what I had to say might be of interest.
