Depth of the ocean water

I believe it to be a true assumption that the role-reversal between parent and child appears suddenly and is generally preceded by few warning signs. Described as an extremely challenging family dynamic, the exchange of roles often comes in the form of a caregiver. Many of us are likely care for a parent or other significant person at some point in our lives. More than 65 million people, about 30 percent of the U.S. population, provide care for a chronically ill, disabled or aged family member or friend during any given year and spend an average of 20 hours ...

Council last week approved such legislation.

Reader: focus on dog owners, not breeds

Regarding your editorial in the Nov. 14 C-I regarding "Pit Bulls," I was disappointed that you chose to use the two recent incidents in Kershaw County as an opportunity to condemn a particular breed of dog, instead of focusing attention on the actual problem, which is the lack of responsible pet ownership. This would have been an appropriate time to support the passage and vigorous enforcement of laws that focus, not on breed, but on people's responsibility for their dogs' behavior. These include measures that hold owners of all dogs accountable for properly housing, supervising and controlling their dogs ...
