Back in the day, when I was newspapering full-time at the C-I and Sheila McKinney was Localife editor, she was a whiz at putting wedding stories together.
We read a lot about people trying to simplify their lives.
The words startled me as soon as I saw them:
I'm a newspaper guy -- been at it for 41 years now -- so I usually come down on the side of the media when there's some kind of dust-up with a politician.

It was good to see dedicated volunteers and staff members recognized at last week's annual United Way of Kershaw County dinner. While there are many, many people who push together to make the United Way the superb organization that it is, a few special people were singled out for recognition.
