Proper etiquette for taking wedding cake home from reception

Dear Annie: My husband and I recently attended my niece's evening wedding. We are not well, and I told my sister that I didn't know how long we could stay. When she told me the wedding cake would be cut at 11:30 p.m., I asked her to bring a slice home for me.

Young STARS

Safety of all kinds -- Internet, boating, fire and highway -- was a key topic for youngsters attending the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) STARS Camp. The campers also learned about bullying/cyber-bullying, basic first aid and alcohol and drug abuse prevention. In addition to a visit from the KCSO K9 unit, the youngsters met a special guest, Marine Lance Cpl. Kyle Carpenter of Gilbert (standing, fourth from left), who was severely injured in Afghanistan when he threw himself in front of a grenade to protect a friend. Carpenter, who has been nominated for the Medal of Honor, spoke to the ...

Priester comes to aid of travelers in distress

Some people deserve recognition for going "above and beyond" and Al Priester, who runs AAA Towing in Lugoff, is one of them. My family and I were traveling from North Carolina to Georgia on Memorial Day when the transmission burned up in our car. We were on I-20 in Lugoff and Al was there a few minutes after calling roadside assistance. We weren't able to get a rental car so he took us to a hotel and said to call him if we needed anything. That meant a lot to us, being in a new place without a car.

Noted and passed - April 14, 2014

• The news that the city of Camden plans to install an elevator at Camden City Hall is quite welcome. It is especially so to the city's disabled citizens who have found it difficult to come to court or attend Camden City Council meetings, both of which take place on the second floor. Many years ago, the city installed a chair-lift system attached to a railing of the building's main stairwell. It hasn't always worked and some people find its appearance a bit daunting. Installing the elevator -- which will also allow employees and visitors to reach offices and ...

Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes

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.

The road diet boon-doggle mistake

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 ...
