RIP, Joe Paterno

I enjoyed reading Tom Didato's article on the late Penn State coach, Joe Paterno. When we met with him on a warm August morning in 2008 I was impressed by his genuine interest in Henry DuRant and myself and the compliments he had for Steve Spurrier. I also learned that PSU and South Carolina administrators had collaborated on the lettermen's lounges at both schools' stadiums and had a very cordial relationship. He greeted Paul Hrabovsky with the type of warmth a father greets a son.

Civil lawsuits

When Gov. Nikki Haley delivered her State of the State address recently, she promised to try to create more jobs in South Carolina, block unions from expanding and a few other things. As you might expect, her speech was generally met with approval from fellow Republicans (though there's no love lost between Haley and many GOP legislators) and criticism from Democrats. But of all the things she mentioned, the one with the most potential for improving the climate in this state was her proposal for a "loser pays" system of civil lawsuits.

Noted and passed -- Jan. 30, 2012

• The concept of youth and job shadowing has been around for years now, and its merits are as valuable as ever. Kershaw County middle-schoolers will be allowed to accompany a parent, relative or neighbor on the job Thursday to learn more about the workplace. The primary goal is to allow these seventh- and eighth-graders to find out about careers and jobs and the expectations that come with them. For students who are unable to participate, the Kershaw County School District provides virtual job shadowing activities in the classroom. The job shadowing experience can be an enriching one, and we hope ...

Gingrich’s ‘umbrage card’ trick

What do you do when you're a presidential candidate like Newt Gingrich who lugs so much baggage that your baggage has baggage? That's easy. You reach up your sleeve and.... Oh, yes. You play the umbrage card. You fume and fuss with outrage over the question and hope no one demands an answer.

To be or not to be a working mother, that is the question

Best-selling Christian author Jen Hatmaker probably meant well when she said, "You will never have this day with your children again, tomorrow they'll be a little older than they were today. This day is a gift, breathe and notice, smell and touch them; study their faces and little feet and pay attention. Relish the charms of the present. Enjoy today, mama. It will be over before you know it."

The passion of U2

Debating who deserves the arbitrary title of "The Greatest Living Band in the World" is futile, principally because tying down such a subjective distinction on a group that all music fans agree with is impossible. There is, however, a canon of contenders. Whether judged by influence, record sales, concert revenue or critical acclaim, certain bands routinely appear atop examinations of "The Best Ever."

Elgin’s spirit

Elgin is certainly not the same community that it was a few decades ago. The sleepy little crossroads that existed then has now become the primary growth area in Kershaw County, with housing developments having sprung up all over West Wateree. The area is populated not only with citizens who were born and raised in Kershaw County but many who have moved across the county line from neighboring Richland County, and others who have found their way there from throughout the United States.
