Roommate’s boyfriend makes living conditions unbearable

Dear Annie: My roommate, "Trish," and I are good friends, and we are both attending the same college. Last spring, her boyfriend spent a lot of time at our apartment. He stayed overnight several times, which made me uncomfortable. I spoke with both of them about it and offered to spend one night a week at my parents' house so they could have the apartment to themselves. Trish agreed, but her boyfriend didn't. He continued to hang out at the apartment even when she wasn't there and liked to walk around in his underwear without a shirt.

We agree with that concept. We do, however, find it interesting that 52 percent of Americans are Protestants but there isn't a single Protestant on the Supreme Court, and we haven't heard a hue and cry over that. We're merely pointing out a statistic, and there's one more we'll throw out: every single member of the high court is a graduate of an Ivy League university ...

So much more than 'his' highway

If most Kershaw County citizens were asked this question – "Who is John G. Richards? – a few may remember Highway 97 from Camden to Liberty Hill as the John G. Richards Highway but know little else. Perhaps that may be understandable since he died in 1941, long before most of us were born.
