Oh, the stories of woe

Oh, the stories people tell. Not always good ones, mind you but the kind that will make you fall down on your knees and thank the good Lord up above that you don't have a story like that.

Deputies’ lives touched thousands

I did not know Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) Deputy Rob Evans, who passed away last week. I knew him, but only in the sense that I spoke to him a few times when the two of us happened to be at KCSO headquarters at the same time. Evans certainly seemed like a nice guy; I remember him smiling a lot.

Talking turkey about Bleak Friday

WASHINGTON -- For children, Christmastime may be the favorite holiday, even if their families don't celebrate the birth of Christ. The twinkling lights and aura of magic that suddenly transfigure the most plebian edifices are nearly as seductive as a round-trip ticket to Never-Never Land.

Enjoying it while it’s there

People seem to get nervous when they realize you're past 25 years old and not only unwed, but also not even close to being wed. I don't really understand why it worries people so much, but I try not to let it bother me. Someone, who will remain unnamed and un-described, recently asked me "Haley, when are you going to get married?"

S.C. football, politicians and great expectations

This week, virtually everyone in South Carolina is talking about the Clemson-USC (University of South Carolina) football game. Without a doubt, it's the biggest Clemson-USC game ever. Dating back to 1896, it is the oldest uninterrupted football rivalry in the South and the second oldest in the country. A 1952 state law requires the two schools to play each other.

Our eternal flame

WASHINGTON -- By now, most of the world has digested the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy's assassination, and millennials can sigh with relief that another such re-examination is at least 10 years away.

A Thanksgiving for blessings and troubles

If New Year's is a time to regroup and look toward the upcoming year, then Thanksgiving is a time to gather and reflect on the year that has passed. In our family, it is a time when we thank the good Lord for both the heartaches and the blessings.

Teachers never learn

Teachers, arguably the most influential people in a child's life, receive the poorest pay and little respect. They work in less than acceptable conditions and must deal with many individuals who are intractable, some even mentally unstable. Yet, most parents believe their own children to be paragons of behavior and virtue. Today's financial crisis illustrates this point, but not as much as does the past.

‘A madman with a (police) box’

Back at the beginning of September, in a column about my sons' "sci-fi education," I mentioned that Doctor Who was about to celebrate its 50th anniversary.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Our Public Works Department Street and Electric crews have been diligently working to decorate the city for Christmas. I know it's not even Thanksgiving yet, but it takes time for us to deck the halls for December. Thanks to their efforts we'll have decorated light poles throughout the downtown and several lit Christmas trees.
