I have to admit that, before I became a stay-at-home mom, I had some preconceived ideas of what that job would be like: dinner on the table by 6PM, time spent making crafts and cherished pieces of artwork with the little ones, the house completely organized and just general peace and order all around. Needless to say, I was in for a rude awakening when I actually got the privilege of becoming a stay-at-home mom. I would describe my days now as beautiful chaos. As much as I try to have some semblance of order in the home, it doesn ...

The fall television season is flush with comic book adaptations, including the premiere of the Batman prequel "Gotham" and the latest version of "The Flash," and returning favorites "Arrow" and "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." I've seen them all, and they're all chock full of geeky goodness.

The Halloween season has already served up one macabre option for kids and animation fans in the creepy Olde English quirk-fest "The Boxtrolls." Now there's a second option on the table, this time with a flair of south-of-the-border bravado -- a visually captivating trip to the underworld and back called "The Book of Life."

Recent studies show too much screen time can be more harmful to children than many people thought. But how much is too much, and how can parents best reduce it if they need to?

Most people love and appreciate their parents. We don't doubt that. The problem is, parents can't tell this unless you show it by the way you treat them. Sometimes adult children can bring heartache to their parents without realizing what they're doing. We've boiled it down to 5 main ways this happens. If you are a parent of adult children, you may recognize some of these. If you're the adult child, you may be in for an awakening. As parents age, their physical needs may change but their need for your love never does. Check ...

The reality is marriage isn't always bliss. Marriage is about ups and downs. Some couples are ready to give up on each other when times are too difficult. They believe walking away from the marriage is easier than confronting the problems as a team. But if the love is pure and strong, then love can overcome anything. And if you have children, walking away from marriage without trying to make it work can set a bad example for them.

"The Book of Life" has been a project I've been pulling for since I first heard Guillermo del Toro was attached to a Dia de los Muertos (Day of the Dead) project. The colors and beautiful philosophy behind the holiday have always felt like a great setting for storytellers, and del Toro's history of fantastical visuals and his own personal love for the traditions set up all the right ingredients for a potentially amazing animated adventure.

• We're seeing some good business and other news here in Kershaw County, showing signs that, perhaps, the community is beginning to climb out of the economic doldrums that have plagued us for too long now. The highlight of the week, of course, was word that Hengst is going through its third expansion, announcing it will invest $8 million into the Steeplechase Spec Building and bring 20 new jobs during the next three years. In the meantime, we've seen new small businesses spring up, or new life bloom in older ones, across the county. There are also still rumors ...

There have been times when the awarding of the Nobel Peace Prize seems political at best, pandering at worst. Nobel prizes, in various categories, including peace, are supposed to be awarded to the person or persons the Nobel committee believes have "done the most or the best work for fraternity between nations, for the abolition or reduction of standing armies and for the holding and promotion of peace congresses."

KershawHealth's Strategic Plan, approved by the board of trustees earlier this year, makes it clear that various alliances are essential to the organization's future success in caring for our community. We must recognize that there are 13 not-for-profit and investor-owned hospitals within a 50-mile radius of Kershaw County and that, more specifically, KershawHealth competes with large healthcare systems in the Columbia metropolitan area. An openness to new ideas and new ways of partnering in a rapidly-evolving healthcare environment is the only strategy for success.

Westbound I-20 traffic was stop and go for several hours Friday after a one-car crash near mile marker 96 took the life of Lisa Marie Munn, 25, of Camden. The S.C. Highway Patrol reported Munn drove a 2007 Honda Acura onto the median between the westbound and eastbound lanes and struck a "low boy" trailer the patrol said was legally parked.
