Dear Annie: My bullheaded 50-year-old daughter has taken gossip from 32 years ago to make my life a living hell. I have four grown children. My older daughter called everyone she could think of and told them I molested my son when he was 5. My daughter never checked to see whether it was true. I have never been arrested for this or had charges filed against me. She further told all the grandchildren and great-grandchildren that they should never stop at my home.

I am constantly hearing that the trees on downtown Broad Street obscure the signs on the stores and for that reason should be cut down and replaced. This has happened entirely too many times, and it would be a matter of time before we repeated the same problem again. My suggestion, following the example of downtown Sumter and downtown Greenville, would be to let the trees grow even higher and remove the bottom branches, ...

People in this country -- no doubt many right here in Kershaw County -- are angry with the Internal Revenue Service and its heavy-handed methods. Of course, the IRS has never been popular, and probably wouldn't be if the agency did everything by the book. But its recent targeting of conservative groups has spotlighted the venom with which overzealous bureaucrats can operate. Adding to it are recent revelations about ...
