Lessons from a failed doom

Harold Camping, the religious broadcaster who said Judgment Day would come last weekend, now says he doesn't want to talk about that anymore. I'm sure he doesn't. But I don't believe he has received enough ridicule.

Not realizing until it hits close to home

I am compelled to write this letter after reading the letter that was written by Officer Christopher Phillips in the Chronicle-Independent on Friday, May 20, 2011. He was writing from the standpoint of being a member of the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office staff. I'm writing from a citizen of Kershaw County's view. This has been a hard week for a lot of people, especially our law enforcement officers. I was really grateful, happy and sad after reading his letter.

Statuary to honor citizen, city

The city of Camden is blessed with a rich cultural heritage and an appreciation for the arts, so it comes as good news that a new statuary monument -- a tribute to one of Camden's long-time business and civic leaders -- is going to grace the new Town Green. This comes not long after the announcement that the Camden Archives grounds will be the site for statues of Bernard Baruch, a Camden native and international financier, and Larry Doby, who broke the color line in the American League.

Volunteering at KershawHealth

My wife and I have been volunteering for more than four years at KershawHealth. On Tuesday, May 17, 24 working people were let go. Through no fault of their own they were released of their jobs. My wife and I immediately resigned because we think we are taking jobs away from those workers. The hospital is very happy with their volunteers because it doesn't cost them anything. I loved volunteering at KershawHealth but volunteers should be suspicious that they are not being used by the hospital instead of the hospital hiring workers.

My third failed attempt at breastfeeding, and it's OK

I've come to know the sound all too well -- the unmistakable suction of the breast pump. In fact, my breast pump and I have spent so much time together there are times I think it's talking to me, and sometimes not saying very nice things! Perhaps some are familiar with that distinctive noise as well if they've been as unlucky as me with what I was told would be natural and wonderful.

5 must-teaches to prepare your kids for adulthood

We teach our children to walk, talk, chew 32 times, brush their teeth, pick up their clothes and be kind to others. We teach them to turn off the lights when they leave a room and not to play with matches. We teach them to drive cars and send out thank-you notes. The list is endless.

Top colleges that take rich and poor kids

As students flood the campuses of the country's elite colleges this fall, those schools remain, mostly, enclaves of privilege. This persists despite the fact that there are many high schoolers from low-income families that make top grades and test scores in numbers that are twice the percentage in the general population as at prestigious universities.

Bridging the gap: Can empathy be taught?

Every semester since 2006, Kevin Blair has taught an introductory course on poverty at Niagara University. And every semester, he finds a business student who is only enrolled in the class to fulfill a social science elective, or simply needed three more credits to graduate -- not because the student is interested in poverty.

One little girl learns the true meaning of delete

For little children, it is the small things in life that can completely destroy their day. When one little girl deletes a picture on the camera, tears quickly come.
