Every year, more than 600,000 Americans are released from prison back into their communities. And when they are, even a minor criminal record can make it hard to get a job and a place to live.

I was always known as the 'pretty calm one' in my family. Not a lot got me worked up, angry or stressed. But when I became a mom and certain unexpected personality traits came out, and people were ... surprised. Especially my family. Having kids brings out different sides of you, sides you may not have known you even had!

The Fourth of July is tomorrow and revelers across the nation are preparing to toast their independence with family and friends. For many Americans, backyard barbecues are synonymous with the Fourth of July, a day that, in the United States of America, commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776.

While Ben Franklin was key to the crafting of the Declaration of Independence, the other Founding Fathers did not want him to be the main author - as they felt they couldn't trust him not to put a joke in it!
The great, big and wonderful approval of going independent actually occurred on July 2 -- a day which John Adams thought would forever after be celebrated by the newly formed nation. "The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha in the History of America." He was right about the way we honor it though: "It ought ...

Once again, the water levels at Lake Wateree have been higher than normal. Beginning Friday, Duke Energy began releasing updates on the situation. Duke Energy first said that the lake level was not expected to exceed 100 feet, but the number changed rapidly and Duke now says the lake level is not expected to exceed 102.5 feet. Though Duke does not expect the levels to exceed that amount, it does expect it to stay around 102 feet for at least several days due to a rainy forecast for the remainder of the week as well as the basin's ...

One Saturday, my neighbor came into my yard followed by a dog, about the size of a small cow, and carrying a small bag of dog chow. I paid little attention to her, but fixated on the animal that had one dead eye and a perpetually bent ear. He looked fearsome and immediately moved toward me, tail wagging, placing his muzzle on my bare leg. He looked like the Hound of the Baskervilles. Fate has many surprises. The neighbor volunteered in saving kennel dogs about to be put to sleep. She did not accept my refusal, so I became the ...

I recently received an article consisting of a list pinpointing how my generation is different than previous generations. The article was written by Jeff Janssen and within the article he referenced a book called Millennials Go to College by Neil Howe and William Strauss. The generation I am part of is commonly referred to as "the Millennials" and includes those born anywhere from 1980 to the present. The makers of the list came up with seven primary ways in which the millennial generation is significantly different. Those seven aspects were: special, sheltered, confident, team-oriented, conventional, pressured and achieving. The most ...

There's no mistaking it, baby pets are adorable and many grow up to become magnificent companions. Unfortunately pet owners often forget the trouble involved with raising a pet from infancy, and overlook the countless mature dogs awaiting adoption from shelters and rescue organizations.

Celebrating Independence Day always covers a broad gamut of activities for Americans. Many of us observe the Fourth of July with fireworks, parades, barbecues, baseball games, trips to the beach, all the while proudly sporting the red, white, and blue. We will watch our children wave small American flags as the parade rolls by (on North Causeway Road, Pauley's Island!). On their faces, we'll see absolute naiveté as they move about almost as if in slow motion, oblivious to the world around them, worrisome only wondering what fun they'll have next, and realizing in a way their ...
