Giving Back

Recently, I was listening to a talk radio host railing about how public schools "no longer teach values." This issue seems to be a mantra of sorts for some folks in the media, many of whom I suspect haven't been anywhere near a public school in years. As someone who is in public schools every day, I can't for the life of me figure out what this view is based on. I know it's not based on reality.

Easter Memories and Hope

It is each of the many Easters of my life that I remember more clearly than any other holiday. Christmases blur together with only a few standing out in my memory such as the one when it snowed all day, the year I lost my voice completely, and the two times that I wasn't home – one working in Washington, D.C. and another in London.

Noted and passed - April 21, 2014

** Thomas Ravenel, the former state treasurer who served prison time for cocaine distribution, now stars in a reality television show called "Southern Charm." Ravenel stumbles through the show in a haze of alcohol and bad judgment. He and his girlfriend, who's 30 years his junior, recently had a baby in Florida. Ravenel says he intends to revive his political career by running for the U. S. Senate from the Palmetto State. The guys in Vegas would probably lay some long odds on his chances for success.

Demons’ seventh inning rally comes up short

If there was a recurring theme for Lugoff-Elgin in the Kershaw-Richland Wooden Bat Classic, it was the Demons' having their share of chances to pull out wins in three of their games, only to have nothing to show for those efforts in the win column.

Camden Garden Club to meet Monday

It is a warm summer day as I sit on my veranda sipping sweet tea with a light breeze blowing through the trees. I gaze out over the sweeping gardens and terraces of lush flowering bushes and shrubs and overstuffed pots and containers. Ahhh, life is good! Then, POOF! I open my eyes and face reality! In the shade it is probably 110 degrees, there is NO breeze, the humidity is hovering around 100 percent. I don't have a veranda and I am not sipping any tea. I am guzzling water in an attempt to stay hydrated. As for ...
