WASHINGTON -- The squabbling between political campaigns and the harrumphing of pundits were put in proper perspective at, of all places, the White House Correspondents' Association (WHCA) dinner -- the annual Prom on the Potomac where 2,000 or so media members and movie stars gather to honor the president and admire one another.
They grew up playing golf together in Burlington, N.C., and now 30-year-old Matt Crenshaw, a car salesman and 28-year-old Blair Bowland, a restaurant manager, are the 2012 Carolinas Golf Association's 61st annual Four-Ball Championship.
The setting: Ms. Jessica Zeller's English II class, host to Mr. Tony Scully's Monologue Workshop. That would be me, a small presence in a much larger universe of intersecting and overlapping young lives at The Continuous Learning Center (CLC) located at the former Jackson School on Campbell Street.
We don't know whether Kershaw County voters will face a referendum this fall on whether to organize a new county police department -- in the process taking virtually all authority away from the sheriff's office -- but the fact that county council is even considering it is a bit unsettling for both entities. Discord between sheriffs and county council members is nothing new, of course. In the past, going back decades, some sheriffs have been quick to remind council members that they are independent elected officials, and councils have been no less reticent to let sheriffs know they are dependent ...
After reviewing the manner in which I was quoted in the Rock Hill Road Trip article in the May 5th issue of the C-I, I need to clarify my comments. First, let me say that I oppose the notion of the City taking a go-it-alone position on the operation of a sports complex. I support City-County dialogue and recreational cooperation.

Here in Kershaw County there are hundreds -- perhaps thousands -- of people suffering from Alzheimer's Disease, the cruel malady that attacks the brain. There are millions of Americans across the country who have fallen prey to Alzheimer's, yet research efforts to find a cure have been consistently disappointing over the last few decades. But two researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston have been successful in essentially growing Alzheimer's in a petri dish, and scientists hope that's going to be a breakthrough in studying possible new treatments for the disease.

WASHINGTON -- Now, now, let's not panic.
Hollywood's most recent spate of pirate movies, the Pirates of the Caribbean series starring Johnny Depp, illustrates the age-old stereotype of "the pirate." Depp is the perfect swaggering pirate, his full head of dreadlocks wrapped in a cloth, waistcoat belted with heavy leather, on occasion an 18th century skirted frock coat and a tricorn hat. Pistols and swords in his belt within easy reach for a fight. Soft leather boots folded down at the top. Swashbuckling at its best. Depp embodies the definitive pirate style.
One of the best things about being an educator is the opportunity to share in the success of students' educational careers. Watching students learn to read, speak a foreign language or pass an AP exam are highlights that I've shared with numerous young people over the years, but none of them comes close to what I consider one the best highpoints I ever experienced: the excitement that I saw on the faces of the students from North Central High School years ago when I informed them about the improvements being made to their school as part of Phase 1 ...
The city of Camden needs experienced professionals, invested citizens working for everyone; the city of Camden needs Jeffrey Graham elected on Nov. 4. Join me in voting for a man with a proven record:
The probate court handles estates, conservatorships and guardianships among other things, all of which are important because they affect the lives of people.

Debbie Branham is a paralegal with 20 years of experience, handling more than 1,000 probate and estate matters. She has been in the courtroom assisting an attorney in trial. She understands the law, the procedures of the court and the probate process. She has the experience and ...

Sneezing, itchy nose and watery eyes -- each a symptom of allergic rhinitis.
Women have made great strides since Title IX banned sex discrimination in any educational program receiving federal funding. This piece of legislation signed by President Nixon in 1972 encouraged thousands of young women, once sidelined, to lace up their shoes, grab their gear and change history.
One of the nation's most recognized Roman Catholic Church-affiliated universities is extending employee benefits to spouses in same-sex marriages. The move comes in the wake of the U.S. Supreme Court decision not to step into the gay marriage debate and appears to contradict current Catholic teaching that "homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered."
On Monday, news broke that Catholic leaders might be warming up to homosexual church members. Rather than use the language of disorder and sin, the Synod of Bishops on the family's midterm report said that "homosexuals have gifts and qualities to offer to the Christian community."
I've traveled often throughout my life, but my recent 4,000-mile road trip across the West took me through some of the most gorgeous terrain I've ever seen.
