Stay home for the holiday

During the Christmas season over the past three decades, presidents of the United States have shown admirable fiscal restraint as well as concern for their staffs when they've chosen their holiday schedules. Most have spent their Christmases either at the White House or nearby Camp David, the presidential retreat in the Maryland mountains just outside the District of Columbia. That has avoided expensive travel to faraway places and has allowed countless government staffers to spend time with their families rather than having to be on the road. Then along came President Obama, who has chosen to pack up -- at ...

Use care with keepsakes

I teach scrapbooking and sell acid-free albums and supplies. Therefore, I was surprised to see the article "Easy ways to reuse and recycle holiday gift wrap" in the Friday, Dec. 30, C-I. One of the uses listed for discarded wrapping paper was to "Use in scrapbooking or as an inexpensive matting for photos." Gift wrap is not acid-free and will cause photos and other paper keepsakes to turn brown and/or deteriorate. The other uses listed sound like really good ideas.

Alzheimer’s hope

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.

Not just guns - Part Two

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.

Former superintendent supports Phase 2 referenda

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 ...

Twelve-year-old athlete cries foul on Dick's Sporting Goods

Notre Dame offers same-sex couples employee benefits

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."

Catholic synod's new openness toward gays represents tremors rather than earthquake
