Scrapbook - Jan. 12, 2011

Last week an airplane flying from Chicago to Germany hit a bit of rough air. One of the crew spilled his drink. The stuff trickled down into the instruments. There it set off the hijacking alarm.

Hypothermia a concern for hunters, outdoors enthusiasts

With recent freezing temperatures across South Carolina, hunters and outdoor enthusiasts headed to the field should be aware of the threat of hypothermia and how to combat it. Hypothermia occurs when exposure to the wind, cold and wetness drain heat from the body faster than it can be produced.

A tragedy, plain and simple

The tragic and senseless shooting of Arizona Rep. Gabrielle Giffords is just another in a long line of such incidents that occur with too much regularity. The Giffords shooting generated a great deal of publicity because she is a United States representative, but such mass violence has become so common that it's hardly shocking anymore. That's a shame and a sad commentary. When Richard Speck broke into a Chicago apartment in 1966 and murdered eight nurses, this country was shocked and incredulous, just as it was when Charles Whitman climbed a University of Texas tower that same year ...

What can we expect from our new sheriff?

I recently came across the following statement, "The Law in the U.S. requires three elements to be present in any crime: the Act, Intent and Damage (mens rea -- willful intent, actus reus -- act or crime, corpus delicti -- body of the crime, the actual damage). It is estimated that 90 percent of the people prosecuted by the courts in the U.S. committed no crime." That is a very powerful statement. Basically what it is saying is that most people in prison today are there because we simply refused to accept their behavior. It has become the norm in America ...

A palace for kings and queens

The kings and queens who rule over the education of our children and spend 42 cents of every dollar they receive on them are building a new and wonderful palace. Their kingdom is vast as they are the largest employer in all of Kershaw County. They purchase property across this land, sometimes at higher than market value. The kings and queens lay off teachers first while keeping the palace staff; after all, they must have a large staff to look over their vast kingdom. Now that their subjects have denied more funds, they have decided to show their subjects that ...
