Fed up granny

Dear Annie: Normally I'm good at minding my own business, but when I see how my granddaughter, "Susie," manipulates her mother (my daughter), I feel the urge to say something.

Tree Pruning 101 -- Part 1

Nothing irks me more than to see a tree improperly pruned. Well, improper planting and no watering of new trees irks me too, but I'll save that for another time. Today I'd like to focus on the basics of tree pruning and next month I'll talk about utility line pruning. Being a hands-on person it's usually easier for me to show how-to rather explain how-to but I'll try. There's just so much to explain about the subject that there are text books and day-long seminars specifically dedicated to tree pruning so bear with me.

Saddened by all of us

I never failed to get excited after coming home from my travels and seeing the Kershaw County line sign as I'm heading towards home. I have such fond memories of growing up here, being in elementary school in Pine Tree Hill and waiting for the Christmas parade on Broad Street, visiting the Kershaw County Library and being read to by the librarians there, playing tennis at Rectory Square and Hampton Park, swimming, boating and skiing at Lake Wateree, running at Scott Park, eating a burger at BSL or Little Midget or, if you're old enough to remember, even ...

Their fair share

We commented Wednesday on the majesty of presidential inaugurations -- President Obama's, to be specific -- but noted that oath-taking day is one in which all Americans can take pride in the way our government operates. With the exception of Beyonce's rendition of the Star Spangled Banner -- was she lip-synching or not? -- there was little controversy to be observed.

Obama 2.0: the sequel

President Barack Obama's critics are shocked, shocked to hear him sound in his second inaugural address like what he is, a liberal progressive. One wonders what they expected.

Letter: Confederate descendant endorses flag removal

It appears the Confederate battle flag will soon be removed from the South Carolina Capitol grounds and placed in a museum where it belongs. What many believe to be a symbol of Southern heritage has now become a symbol of division. Only the flag of one sovereign nation should fly over the Capitol grounds. I endorse its removal in honor and wishes of my great-grandfather, a former Confederate soldier who wrote in his diary from Shanghai, Chine, on September 17, 1886:
