My husband ruined me. Yes, he completely ruined me. Growing up, I was quite the independent girl. I could stay all alone overnight without grasping a baseball bat at every little sound. I was even able to put together a bookshelf all by myself — with tools. However, once I married, I began to rely on my husband for so many things that I use to do myself. Even after five years of marriage, those feelings haven’t changed. In fact, I realize I need him more than ever.

You don't have to be a marriage counselor to hear stories of frustrated men who just wish their wives would say what they really wanted. This happens all the time. Birthdays, Christmas, vacations ... Your wife says she wants one thing and then gets upset because she really wanted something else.

• We hope you had as much fun reading our recent front page story on the 2015 Junior Leadership Kershaw County's etiquette class as we did putting it together. The entire Junior Leadership program -- taking some of Kershaw County's brightest and most promising students and giving them the opportunity to interact with a variety of leaders from across the county -- is one we're lucky to have in our community. The etiquette class, held at Boykin's Mill Pond Steakhouse, taught these already well-mannered teens the finer points of moving through society, especially at a fancy restaurant. Parents often ...

While I was taking a finance class as part of my doctoral program in Virginia in the early 1990s, one of the topics we discussed was a lawsuit that had been filed in South Carolina, now called the Abbeville case, which challenged South Carolina's structure for funding public education. Life takes funny turns. Here I am 21 years later in South Carolina when the case is finally settled.

Oh, sure, everyone's been complaining a bit about the bitterly cold weather we've been having here in Kershaw County this week. And, yes, it's been unseasonably frigid, with the temperature nearly reaching single digits Thursday morning, with a wind chill considerably lower than that. But a few days of shivering are a small price to pay for a climate that is superior to most others in this country.

Some time back I wrote a column about "the mob mentality," how society, especially on the internet, will rush to judgment about any number of topics without any real facts or proven truths to back up their opinions. Yes, opinions. Without facts, your opinions (or mine) are all we have. I have heard that we are all entitled to our own opinion, but not to our own facts. Food for thought.
