This summer we returned to my mom's hometown in the Northwest. One afternoon we stopped by good old Crown Park, a place my mom took me to play when I was a child.

Truett Cathy

Folks in Kershaw County were excited a year or so ago when Chick-fil-A opened a store between Camden and Lugoff. The fast-food restaurant is one of the favorite quick eateries in the United States, especially in the South, where fried chicken has been a staple for centuries. We note that Truett Cathy, the founder of the 1,800-outlet chain, died recently at the age of 93.

Kershaw treasure

About two weeks ago, my son was married in Kershaw County. The Southern hospitality that was extended to our family was exceptional. I have been to weddings in many states and this location here was one of the best venues I have ever seen. The location was Rock Bottom Pond -- they have a great website (rockbottompondadventures.com) that shows what they have to offer. Instead of people going to Columbia, Florence or Charleston, spending their money in another county, I believe they would find it right here. George Speedy and his lovely wife, Donna, streamlined the process with Donna coordinating ...

In 2011, Casey Allred was teaching at a school that he helped start in a small village in India, and he noticed that girls -- especially girls around 12 or 13 -- started disappearing from the rolls. He went in search of them without much luck, until he finally talked to a local attorney.

10 signs your emotional life may need a tune-up

Being emotionally healthy is like owning a well-running car. If your vehicle is taken care of, you can get through construction zones, traffic and bumpy dirt roads with no trouble. If your car is a run-down old clunker, you won't be able to rely on it to get you where you are going on your terms. This comparison also holds true for a well-functioning brain. A good therapist is like your brain's mechanic. Here are 10 signs that indicate a professional might be of some help in tuning up your life:

Terrorists seize home to Iraq's second largest oil refinery

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has recently taken over the Iraqi cities of Mosul and Baiji, the second of which is the home of Iraq's largest oil refinery. The accompanying infographic shows the development of ISIS and its most recent attacks. ISIS pledges allegiance to al-Qaida, and as ABC News reports, it is proving to be the undoing of the United States' decadelong efforts to establish democracy in the embattled country. With the country's oil supply at risk, will the West intervene again? Is the fight against terrorism becoming a lost cause?

Noted and passed - Sept. 15, 2014

• What a boon the S.C. Equine Park has been for Camden and Kershaw County! And now, with word that a second, larger covered arena will be built -- possibly as soon as this winter -- the park should ultimately bring even more people to the area than it already does. Think on this: even with the arena already in place, the equine park has been booked an average of 30 weekends each year, with an economic impact of $4 million. Imagine if, with the second arena, the park could be booked 45 or even 50 weekends each year. How much would ...

What the president said

Last week, I called for going after ISIL (or ISIS or IS, the Islamic State as it wants to call itself now), in full force. Admittedly, I wasn't very specific about that. Some may have thought I meant "boots on the ground," as opposed to only the air strikes the U.S. has already participated in.
