Reality isn’t so ducky

WASHINGTON -- It's Christmas and a strange white-bearded fellow uttering quack-quack-quack has streaked across the continent, dumping a large sack of something on America's hearth.

Done for now

Congress finally made some semblance of an effort to work together a couple of weeks ago in passing a two-year budget agreement which will preclude the possibility of another government shutdown this year. That's the good news. The bad news is that with the agreement completed, lawmakers in Washington appear to be done with serious deficit reduction for the foreseeable future. Those members of Congress who believe the country needs to address the horrid deficits plaguing the country apparently have little leverage against their colleagues, who are apparently satisfied with the plan cobbled together by Republican Paul Ryan and ...

A crashed car, hearse and a safety banner in front of the Lugoff Fire Department (LFD) on U.S. 1 in Lugoff are a way of showing the agency's support for the statewide "Sober or Slammer" highway safety campaign. The car and banner also serve as a reminder to drivers of the dangers of unsafe driving.

Fill a Truck Campaign benefits more than 80 KCSD students

Kershaw County School District (KCSD) partnered with the Camden Walmart and the United Way of Kershaw County to collect toys and coats for needy children through Walmart's Fill a Truck campaign. Volunteers from all three organizations manned the cardboard trucks in the store over three weekends in December to encourage Walmart shoppers to participate. The results were outstanding with enough items donated to benefit over 80 KCSD students as well as others who were being served through the Toys for Tots programs. Walmart employees themselves purchased three shopping carts worth of items.

Kershaw County cares

Many, many years ago, Tom and Cyndi Fussell started a tradition of serving the hungry and homeless on Thanksgiving Day out of their restaurant in Camden. Kelly and I were fortunate to join them some years later, and -- several years ago -- formed a group called Kershaw County Cares to continue the tradition started by Tom and Cyndi. This year, more than 100 volunteers gave up part of their Thanksgiving and Christmas days to come and prepare, serve and deliver more than 1,450 meals to Kershaw County's less fortunate!

Mother and son at odds over religious tradition

Dear Annie: I am 14 years old and facing a dilemma. My father isn't particularly religious, but my mother is a strict Catholic, and my older sister and brother have been confirmed. I have another six months before I am expected to go through the process of confirmation. I do not want to do this. But as the time approaches, my mother has become increasingly forceful on the subject.
