Voter requirements

South Carolina recently passed a law that requires voters to show a photo ID when they go to the polls, and we have said all along those who object to such a move are throwing a red herring into the equation. There's certainly nothing wrong with having people prove who they say they are when they go to exercise the basic right of democracy, and the photo ID law does nothing to prevent people from voting or making it more difficult for them to do so.

Up on the roof

Camden Elementary School Principal Ed Yount spent Monday night on the school's roof as part of an agreement made after challenging the elementary school students to raise $1,000 for the United Way of Kershaw County's campaign. The students actually exceeded the $1,000 benchmark, and raised as much as $1,349 through a variety of school fundraisers. On Tuesday morning, Yount said he knew the students would reach their goal, but was pleasantly surprised they exceeded it. During his night on the roof, Yount said he spent his time in a tent "reading and getting some school ...

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?

Ariail for September 15, 2014

September 15, 2014 | | Ariail


Noted and passed - Sept. 15, 2014

• 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.
