Husband’s friends over stay welcome

Dear Annie: Recently, my husband mentioned that he wanted to get together with some friends for a project. I encouraged him to invite the guys to our home to work on it. I thought it would be a few hours, but it ended up taking well over 12. They arrived early in the morning and stayed until late that night, taking over our living room.

Campaign cash fuels Camden mayor’s race

The final total won't be known until after January 10, but S.C. Ethics Commission (SCEC) filings by local candidates this year show that Camden Mayor-elect Tony Scully had already outspent incumbent Mayor Jeffrey Graham by a 2-to-1 margin by Oct. 22 when candidates had to file pre-election campaign disclosures. With 15 days to go in the campaign at that point, Scully had received approximately $30,000 in contributions and spent just about $22,800 -- only $700 less than Graham had received in contributions by that time. By Oct. 22, Graham had received nearly $23,500 in contributions and ...

Move forward

Tip O'Neill, the Massachusetts pol who was speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives for many years, once said that all politics is local. That maxim was never more evident than in last Tuesday's election for mayor in which political newcomer Tony Scully unseated incumbent Jeffrey Graham. It was concrete proof that if voters believe their elected officials aren't listening to them, they'll turn them out of office. Scully was a reluctant candidate but turned out to be an effective one, and voters responded to that.

A different Christmas

I guess every child hears how lucky he is from his parents. I am not sure the story is true. My mother, a widow with little education, told me how meager her Christmases had been in a family of 12 children. According to her, she was lucky to get an apple or an orange, a finger-sized doll and a stick of candy. My brother and I, on the other hand, usually got much more. I remember quite clearly that Santa never got the idea right that I despised dolls, so I received one every year. Contrary to the dolls of ...

Ariail for March 23, 2015

Noted and passed - March 23, 2015

• Friday, we reported a grand jury finally indicted 22-year-old Stephen Ross Kelly for his alleged kidnapping, sexual assault and murder of Briana Rabon. We say "finally indicted" because Briana was killed more than a year ago. While we cannot be certain -- grand jury proceedings are secret, and for good reason -- we suspect the indictments were handed down now because the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) only recently completed its forensic examination of evidence it and the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office collected. Briana, by all accounts, was a bright young lady who, at 18, had her entire life ...
