Aging matters -- respite:

"I was tired, but it was a different kind of tired. This kind of tired comes from day after day of constant caregiving with no end in sight -- with no hope and no one to care. Respite allowed me to be with people who care and realize that some people understand what caregivers are going through." Like this elderly gentleman, who is a caregiver for his wife living with Alzheimer's disease, you may have a similar story. In fact, you will be surprised to learn that this may be a typical response from any one of the over 770 ...

Fixing education in South Carolina

Jon Butzon is a big guy and he has some big ideas about how we can fix education in South Carolina. He should know because for years he's run the Charleston Education Network -- he's seen it, lived it and thought about it. He knows where we are as a state; he knows what works, and most importantly what doesn't work.

Beyond the rubble of disaster….

Time and again, I am moved to emotion at the goodness of Americans particularly in instants of unexpected and horrific circumstances - natural disasters, terrorism, and life-shattering violence. It can be difficult knowing how to talk to our children about the loss and the fear surrounding events like 9/11, Hurricane Sandy, Newtown, the Boston Marathon, tornados in Oklahoma, among others. Unluckily, the majority of our kids have seen the disturbing images on television from the collapse of the World Trade Center towers to the devastation in Oklahoma to the unspeakable carnage in Boston. At times, it may seem impossible to ...

Female breadwinners to cause downfall of society?

I'm not typically one to really keep up with the happenings on FOX News or really any other news type channel for that matter. I don't really watch TV all that often so I tend to get my news from a variety of websites. However, sometime Friday as I scanned my Facebook newsfeed I began to see a trend. There appeared to be some sort of hullaballoo regarding comments said on FOX News. The thing that caught my attention were the variety of people who were posting about what happened. It wasn't just those that refer to ...

Wiley Kelley’s role in filling CSA ‘bread baskets’

Along the eastern edge of Kershaw County flow the Little and Big Lynches rivers. European settlers received land grants along these two rivers in the three decades preceding the Revolutionary War. They began to plant and cultivate crops in the rich bottom lands bordering these rivers and during the next half century, several large plantations developed. One such plantation was that of David and Elizabeth Tyner Kelley and their son Wiley Kelley (1795-1873).
