The good in life

We had hoped, as no doubt all Kershaw County residents had, that the economy during this Thanksgiving season would be more vigorous than it actually is -- that fewer people would be unemployed, that the housing market would have rebounded, that small businesses would be prospering more than they are and that the stress caused by economic turmoil would have eased.

Maybe elites can make marriage cool again

It's hard to figure us Yanks out, my British friends say. We still go simply gaga over royal weddings like the upcoming nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton. Yet we historically rejected royalty -- and increasingly we're even rejecting marriage.

Students in the protective services, nursing and automotive technology programs collected the most jars and earned a pizza party and ice cream for their efforts. Showing off a portion of the ...

Facilitating children's playtime and events

Recently, I had a couple of sweet granddaughters for a sleepover. It was long-anticipated and long overdue. They were so happy to see each other, one being six and the other seven.

The concept of term limits became popular a number of years ago, but has since waned. Limits were enacted in many states across the country and in many of those, were repealed either through legal challenges or political considerations.

It was passed largely because Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected four times and much of this country felt such longevity wasn't good for the country -- too much power invested in one ...
