Noted and Passed

** Pete Seeger, who died recently at 94, had a profound influence on the American musical scene; the folksinger-songwriter was a catalyst for the folk music revival of the 1960s and he penned some of the great songs of that genre, including If I Had A Hammer, Where Have All The Flowers Gone and Turn, Turn, Turn.

Warning: this column may include warnings

If you're like thousands of other people in Kershaw County, you got a Christmas present Wednesday that you don't fully know how to work. Chances are good it was some sort of electronic device -- a new smartphone, iPod, video game or some other miracle of modern technology.
