Parents deal with racism from family

Dear Annie: My husband and I adopted our daughter at birth. When my mother-in-law found out that "Amanda" is biracial, she informed my husband that we were no longer welcome in her home. Initially, she admitted it was simple racism, but now she says it's because she can never accept a child "not of my own blood." When our daughter was 3, Mom visited and told Amanda that she was a "friend," not a relative.

Debates as un-reality TV

Karl Rove, a star political strategist, is outraged that Donald Trump, a star real-estate mogul and reality show host, is staging a reality show with real Republican presidential candidates and calling it a debate. Yet, with all due respect, Trump is only exploiting a process that political strategists like Rove already hijacked.

Truett Cathy

Folks in Kershaw County were excited a year or so ago when Chick-fil-A opened a store between Camden and Lugoff.

We note that Truett Cathy, the founder of the 1,800-outlet chain, died recently at the age of 93.

Kershaw treasure

About two weeks ago, my son was married in Kershaw County. The Southern hospitality that was extended to our family was exceptional. I have been to weddings in many states and this location here was one of the best venues I have ever seen. The location was Rock Bottom Pond -- they have a great website (rockbottompondadventures.com) that shows what they have to offer. Instead of people going to Columbia, Florence or Charleston, spending their money in another county, I believe they would find it right here. George Speedy and his lovely wife, Donna, streamlined the process with Donna coordinating ...
