If a season goes along the same lines as a first match, then this could be a special volleyball season at North Central.
In 2005 I was asked to write the history book for my American Legion Post 17 located in Camden. Among the many bits of facts I discovered and wrote into the document was the huge amount of compensation benefits our VA Service Officer and his assistant brought into my home county. At that time the annual amount was a mere $18,375,000 that year. Those benefits are tax exempt. That means every penny/dollar is turned around by the veteran who benefited from the award so they can spend the entire amount back into our local economy for goods ...
On June 15, God called one of his "special angels" home. Barbara was a special needs person. To me she was just a special person. When Barbara was born, she wasn't given much chance to live, but because of God's grace, her parents' and family's love and the care of her doctors, she lived a good and long life.

Don't take this personally, but if you don't like chocolate, you're a little bit weird.
At last there's a hint of hope from Washington -- a tiny but palpable sign that just maybe, lawmakers are getting the message that people are weary of the logjam which prevents decent legislation from being passed. Democratic and Republican members of the Joint Select Committee On Deficit Reduction have agreed to name a longtime Senate staffer to assume the job of running the panel. The man they've chosen is Mark Prater, chief counsel for Republicans on the Senate Finance Committee. We're glad to see him named not because he's a member of the GOP but because ...
Things started on an ominous note for the Lugoff-Elgin baseball team on Thursday and they would not get better that evening.
Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.
She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.
The road diet -- what a mistake. Even the mayor admits it could be a mistake. When the mayor was running for office he led me to believe that he was against the Broad Street diet. Two years later, he has flipped his opinion about the diet project. The mayor's vote, along with two of the previous council members, is what placed this mistake in motion. The urgency for the vote was to apply for a grant. A grant is federal tax dollars and not free money as some believe. This type of attitude is one of the reasons our ...
