Two leaders lost, big lessons gained

What makes a great leader? While President Barack Obama and his Republican challengers grapple mightily with that question, the deaths of Steve Jobs and the Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, two leaders who shunned political office, tell us the answer.

Noted and passed for Oct. 17, 2011

• If you don't think things change rapidly in the political world, you need look no further than Herman Cain, who was a mere blip on the Republican radar a few weeks ago and is now leading the polls. Only time will tell whether his star will fade, and there are many who criticize his "9-9-9" economic plan, advocating 9 percent income tax, 9 percent corporate tax and 9 percent sales tax. But one thing's for sure: the U. S. tax code is so burdensome and unwieldy that it needs a complete revamping. We wish other candidates would give ...

Visiting artists in the schools are sponsored by the Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County's ...

Vanity plates

Years ago, when non-traditional license plates were first authorized in South Carolina, they were called "vanity plates" because many people who bought them put their initials on them. Since then, the specialty plate trend has grown to the point that the Palmetto State has more than 300 different varieties, ranging from NASCAR fans to Boykin Spaniel owners to Jimmy Buffett mavens. Law enforcement officers are finally starting to say enough is enough, the problem being that the plethora of plates is aborting the original mission of having them: to identify cars.

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
