Morgan: Shopping locally

Time flies … school starts in August and you blink a couple of times and it's Thanksgiving and then we're in the Christmas season. I had a conversation recently with a long-time member of the local business community, and he suggested I write something about how shopping locally benefits our schools and the community as a whole. I thought it was a pretty good idea. Given the shopping we're all going to be doing over the next few weeks, this seemed like an opportune time to do so.

Joseph: A blank check from our veterans

At the end of World War I, fighting ended when an armistice, or temporarily cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month. For that reason, Nov. 11, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of "the war to end all wars." In November 1919, President Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Nov. 11 as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: "To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in ...

Gunn: Building our future together

KershawHealth was envisioned and built by local philanthropy. It has been sustained for more than a century by the commitment of a community dedicated to caring for its own. And, even as it has grown, decade after decade, it has never lost that sense of purpose that comes from neighbors caring for neighbors. Now, we have joined with our neighbors to take another step on that journey.

Scully: More points of light

One of the population groups many Americans descend from, at least in part, are the Normans. Remember in school, we learned about William the Conqueror (1066) and "The Norman Conquest" without necessarily understanding what that meant exactly. The Normans come up again in popular culture with Robin Hood. Robin and his Merry Men were the noble Anglo Saxons defending the great people of Olde England against the predatory Norman lords, who by then ruled the British Isles, sometimes with arrogance and self-proclaimed superiority. It's also important to note the Norman barons created and signed the Magna Carta, one of ...
