As many Camdenites and others did, I had a great summer on The River, or was it The Lake? The River is what many of us aging boomers call Lake Wateree. Fifty years ago, that moniker was associated with everything about "Wateree" Lake. I pondered that thought as I reflected and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon breeze from the shores of Camp Lystra. Today, some changes are quite apparent, and some changes are barely noticeable. In reality, some features that appear to be changed are unchanged. Hidden from the quick eye are many of its unchanged features.
Dear Annie: My relationship with my 22-year-old daughter, "Lana," has become impossible. She is a total slob. She lived here over the summer and did exactly one load of laundry. It was not uncommon to come home and find dishes in the sink because she "didn't have time" to empty the dishwasher. Her clothes and shoes were everywhere. My husband paid rent on her college apartment so she could keep it while she worked here for the summer, and she decided to use her own money to take a weeklong vacation. She didn't pay her car insurance (my ...

We suppose writing editorials about voting can be a recitation of clichés – "the most basic right of Americans," "the cornerstone of democracy," those kinds of things. But however hackneyed they might sound, they're true. Never was the power of the vote more evident than two years ago when Barack Obama energized the American electorate as it had not been energized in years. Obama rushed to a landslide win by exciting people about the prospects of changing America in a positive way. Now, if we are to believe polls showing a sizeable Republican win next Tuesday, Americans are saying ...

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.
Chances are your husband is not expecting a dozen red roses from you. However, he wouldn't mind hearing words of appreciation. Telling your husband how thankful you are for the things he has done or telling him how much you love him is a good start to making his day a better one.
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. We teach them so much more than the schools they attend. We prepare them for life.
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.
Every semester since 2006, Kevin Blair has taught an introductory course on poverty at Niagara University.

I recently flew across the U.S. from Oregon to Massachusetts via California. Spending several hours traveling allowed me to indulge in one of my favorite pastimes -- people watching. And while you might think a cross-country overnight flight would bring out the worst in people, the opposite was true. I observed several moments that proved to me the world is inherently good, and I can be a part of it. Let me tell you about 6 brief experiences that inspired me.
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. It can break our heart to see children cry over the smallest details but do we often find ourselves doing the same thing? Has your mood ever quickly changed because your favorite pair of pants are too tight and you're mad at yourself for putting on a few extra pounds? Do you find that you quickly lose patience when your child constantly whines? Or, do the tears start to come ...
OK, I admit it: I had a crush on JoAnn.
It was a landmark week for the showdown between big cable, who tie online services to network subscriptions, and Millennial viewers, who prefer to watch much of their TV online and a la carte.
It is no secret that parenting is hard. No matter whether your children are young, teenagers or even adults, your children need and deserve a parent who cares. Spending time with your children is important but it isn't just the amount of time you spend that matters, it is the quality of time. By making an effort to truly be present in your child's life, your relationship will grow and parenting may seem just a tad easier.
