Proceeds from the supper, as well as other contributions being accepted by the Kiwanis Club, will be used to fund the Kiwanis International/UNICEF ...

We think we can place it firmly in the "fun(d)raising" category, in that it not only raises money for the FAC, but raises the fun quotient with folks getting to see some of Kershaw County's notable residents doing their best to shimmy and shake or tango across the stage. Extra congratulations to Tyke Redfearn and Ginny Marshall for winning the technical award for best dance routine, and to Eric Boland and Amanda Smith for earning the People's Choice Award ...
The Kershaw County School Board response in Monday's Chronicle-Independent to Scott Jordan's statement on Zemp Stadium is nothing if not informative.

So, 2014 hasn't lived up to the hype. Sure the usual franchise fodder and gratuitous effect-splendors have pulled in big numbers, but on a whole, this year has been a critical and commercial yawn for the film industry.
