From May 16 to 21, the National Guard participated in Ardent Sentry, a major training exercise in South Carolina focused on disaster response and coordination procedures.

Dear Annie: My bullheaded 50-year-old daughter has taken gossip from 32 years ago to make my life a living hell. I have four grown children. My older daughter called everyone she could think of and told them I molested my son when he was 5. My daughter never checked to see whether it was true. I have never been arrested for this or had charges filed against me. She further told all the grandchildren and great-grandchildren that they should never stop at my home.
We were glad to see the Kershaw County Sheriff's Department conduct a sting operation recently that resulted in five area businesses being cited for selling alcohol to minors. People under the age of 21 have many ways to get alcohol, and we don't delude ourselves into believing that such an effort will wipe out underage drinking, but it's one more step that will make it more difficult for people to buy alcoholic beverages illegally.
