Thank you from Operation Christmas Child

I'm writing to thank Camden area residents for their generosity in helping thousands of suffering children worldwide this Christmas. Through their efforts, we were able to collect over 33,000 shoeboxes-filled with toys, school supplies and hygiene items-for Operation Christmas Child, the world's largest Christmas project of its kind. These simple gift-filled shoeboxes communicate to needy children that they are loved and not forgotten.

Doga - Yoga With Dogs

Downward Dog is no longer something that only humans do during their yoga practice! Finally, the position's namesake can join in with their person and get their Zen on. It's called doga - a cute combination of the words "dog" and "yoga" - and it has been gaining in popularity over the past few years. Created in 2002 in New York City by yoga instructor Suzi Teitleman, doga is a great way for people to bond with their precious dogs while both parties enjoy some stretching and relaxation.

Ralph Alan Schneck, Sr.

Ralph Alan Schneck, Sr., 81, of Lugoff, SC, went home to be with his Savior on January 29, 2014. Alan, as he liked to be called, was born in Weirsdale, FL, May 24, 1932. He owned and operated Alan's Market in Lugoff. Alan's most important decision was made back in the early 70's when he admitted he was a sinner and placed his faith and trust in Jesus Christ. He went from being an alcoholic to a servant of God. His words of encouragement will be missed but his legacy lives on.

Head start

President Obama's plan to expand early-childhood education on a massive scale sounds at first blush like a great idea. After all, who can argue with the fact of helping kids -- especially disadvantaged kids -- get a break early in life, thus helping them gain valuable skills and leading productive lives? The only problem is that the government itself -- the Department of Health and Human Services, in particular -- has found that programs such as Head Start don't work on a long-term basis.
