Rich: The great ones

In those days, I was too young to fully grasp the education I was receiving. That's typical of most teenagers I suppose. At the age of 19, insight, wisdom and knowledge rolled off me like a well cooked egg slides easily over Teflon but somewhere it deposited itself so it bubbled up later.

Teal: The story of ‘Asa Hartz’

Dr. Allen Stokes, the cataloger of the Yates Snowden papers at the South Caroliniana Library, called my attention to a March 7, 1927, letter in the collection from Thomas J. Kirkland. At some point before March 7, Yates Snowden, long time head of the History Department at the University of South Carolina, had received a copy of Historic Camden, Volume II written by Kirkland and Kennedy. Snowden reviewed this work in a letter to Kirkland.

Cahn: Crime reports can leave you in stitches

A week ago, I named first responders as my People of the Year for 2015. Included among them are our police department officers and sheriff's office deputies. In honoring them, I mentioned some of the things they do to help the community and the risks they take in keeping us safe here in Kershaw County.

Scully: What is the Chamber of Commerce?

Many people have no clear idea about the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors' Center at the Mills Court House on Broad Street. It might be time to identify the Chamber and clarify its mission.

Noble: Smoking, Kids and the New Year

The two most often made (and broken) New Year's resolutions are to lose weight and to quit smoking. If you need any evidence of this, count how many ads you see on TV for weight loss and quit smoking products in all the football bowl games.

Parker: Now I lay me down to sleep

Tatum: New year’s excitement lite, reprise

It's been a long time since I have done any heavy duty partying on New Year's Eve. I probably haven't been to a New Year's Eve bacchanal in more than a decade or two and while I am still capable and willing to make really lousy decisions, I haven't done a blithering, whirly-eyed debauch-a-thon at New Years probably since my roaring 20s.

Rich: Good Lord willin’

Cahn: First responders my People of the Year

Choosing my person, or in this case, people of the year was a very easy task. Really, there was no question: Kershaw County's first responders -- from police and deputies to firefighters and paramedics -- are definitively this year's heroes. They are every year, of course, but 2015 showed us why and in a big way.

No plant says Christmas like the beautiful Poinsettia and while technically not a tree, it can attain heights of up to 20 feet in its native Mexico and Guatemala. There it is known as "La Flor de la Nochebuena" (Flower of the Holy Night).
