Ariail for Feb. 17, 2014

February 17, 2014 | | Ariail


Noted and passed - Feb. 17, 2014

• We note with sadness the recent death of Bill Few of Liberty Hill, one of the great high school football coaches in this state. Few, who attended Clemson on an athletic scholarship, was a no-nonsense coach who instilled discipline in his players and compiled, over his 26-year career, a 221-68-3 record, including three state championships. His last few years on the field were spent at North Central High School.

Oh dear, bless her heart

She said it, of course, with smirk. Those women who really don't understand the ways of the women of the South seem to always speak about us in words that are vividly cloaked in disdain.

That's a line I hear a lot. It's a good sound bite, especially from politicians and others who don't want to acknowledge the consequences of poor long-term decisions. But it doesn't reflect reality.

Russian roulette

The game of Russian roulette consists of taking a loaded gun, aiming it at your head, firing it, and hoping the chamber will be empty. After I completed my Ph.D., I still lacked wisdom. When my husband wanted to give me a trip for a graduation present, I thought I had earned at least a trip to three locations, so I chose China, Egypt and Russia. Each location was different, but this article concerns Russia. The tourism brochures painted marvelous pictures of an elegant vacation with spas, up-to-date hotels and excursions. The brochures did not lie: the sites were ...
