Noted and passed - Jan. 6, 2014

• The concept of energy conservation has never been stronger, as the amount of electricity consumed in U.S. homes fell in 2013 for the third straight year. Usage is at the lowest level since 2001. Several factors are involved, in addition to Americans being more conscious of saving power: homes are better built; appliances and gadgets are more efficient; insulation has become better and cheaper; and there are nifty new devices such as smart thermostats. It's all a good thing, of course, for this country.

The way she was

The insufferable whistleblower

WASHINGTON -- Time has not deflated Edward Snowden's messianic sense of self-importance. Nor has living in an actual police state given the National Security Agency whistleblower any greater appreciation of the actual freedoms that Americans enjoy.

Real Christmas spirit

On Christmas Eve my daughter and I set out to do our "last minute" errands which entailed going to at least six different stores. When we returned home, I realized that I had lost a very sentimental piece of jewelry that was handed down to me through my family. Needless to say, I was heartsick, and after scouring my house and vehicle, felt that it was gone forever.

The people of Kershaw County and South Carolina will be the big winners as a result of an agreement that will leave a huge piece of land near Lake Wateree protected from development forever. Sen.
