Rap in class

In an effort to improve literacy at Lugoff-Elgin Middle School, students spent the last 30 minutes of each day in enrichment. For several weeks, students read aloud "The Bully" and participated in activities related to the book. Students kept a journal and discussed the book with their teacher. A few students in Lynn Weeks class – including Kedar Jennings, Parker Gogan and Ryan Bland -- decided to "rap" the story to their classmates. It was exciting to see every student actively engaged and participating during the activities.

Healing the community

County Councilman Stephen Smoak is to be commended for his comments, on recreation facilities, at the Jan. 24th council meeting. Based on what he and the chairman of council said, I believe Councilman Smoak understands both the recreational and economic needs of the community. I believe that the members of the County Council Recreation Committee will also support a cooperative effort with the City of Camden to provide new and improved recreation facilities.

RIP, Joe Paterno

I enjoyed reading Tom Didato's article on the late Penn State coach, Joe Paterno. When we met with him on a warm August morning in 2008 I was impressed by his genuine interest in Henry DuRant and myself and the compliments he had for Steve Spurrier. I also learned that PSU and South Carolina administrators had collaborated on the lettermen's lounges at both schools' stadiums and had a very cordial relationship. He greeted Paul Hrabovsky with the type of warmth a father greets a son.

Civil lawsuits

When Gov. Nikki Haley delivered her State of the State address recently, she promised to try to create more jobs in South Carolina, block unions from expanding and a few other things. As you might expect, her speech was generally met with approval from fellow Republicans (though there's no love lost between Haley and many GOP legislators) and criticism from Democrats. But of all the things she mentioned, the one with the most potential for improving the climate in this state was her proposal for a "loser pays" system of civil lawsuits.
