To have or have not -- a baby

WASHINGTON -- The media-created mommy wars haven't just jumped the shark and entered the realm of "Sharknado." Where women once debated ways to balance family-and-career -- a hyphenated oxymoron if ever there was one -- they're now clashing over whether having babies is really all that.

Fitness and funny occurrences

My husband often gave me gifts -- many for no reason at all -- such as trips to foreign lands, jewelry, excursions to New York to see plays, etc. However, one of the gifts he presented to me with delight was not appreciated. I had just retired from teaching and wanted nothing more than to sit in a chair and never hear anyone call for Mrs. Pruett or Dr. Pruett again. Actually, I wanted to vegetate. Instead, my husband, who retired before me, signed us up for a New Life program. (I had no idea how lasting this contract was to be ...

Beyond sound bites

At the end of the most recent KershawHealth Board of Trustees meeting, I was approached by a television news reporter with a number of questions. I couldn't answer his questions at that time because they do not lend themselves to sound-bite answers, so I'd like to take this column to present a reasoned response to the questions.

Pet talk - Aug. 12, 2013

Whether they want it to bark, purr, slither or squawk, there comes a time when a pet appears on nearly every child's birthday wish list. For most parents, this decision can be a bit daunting. Is your child ready to take on the responsibility of caring for a pet? Will the new animal negatively affect his or her health? Though your child may think your wary attitude is unnecessary, these are valid questions for every parent to ask themselves and their family before welcoming a new pet into their home.

Noted and passed - Aug. 12, 2013

• Former president George W. Bush, one of the most active chief executives the country's ever had, was diagnosed recently with a blocked artery and had a stent inserted to correct the problem. We've stated before that Bush might not have been a great president but is a fine man, and he has never said critical things about President Obama despite Obama's constant blaming of Bush for the country's ongoing economic problems. We found it interesting that when a reporter asked Obama spokesman Jay Carney if the president had contacted Bush to wish him well after his ...
