Jenkins: A helping hand and fortunate feather

This time of year, I am like the hermit thrush, retreating into the woods and intentionally disconnecting in all ways possible. I seem to go through these burnouts with each winter solstice, and the rain only intensified it this year. I've come to accept this cycle and to engage with it in a way which makes it productive.

Feature photo: Gas under $2 brings smiles

Joe Sparks of Elgin is all smiles as he prepares to fill his pick-up with sub-$2 gas at Murphy Express in Camden, one of several Kershaw County stations which dropped the cost of a gallon below $2 on Tuesday morning. Though plummeting oil prices are causing havoc in financial markets, they're producing big grins for local motorists, who six years ago were paying about twice that much for fuel. The price on the pump for regular unleaded gasoline reads $1.989.
