Column: The bi-vocational preacher

In the months before we married, I sought to show Tink the Southern mountains of my raising.

I turned off the "blacktop" onto a graveled dirt drive.

Column: School bus experiences

On a morning in early September 1934, an older brother and I left our home on what is now Teal Road and walked one-half mile to Porter Road. There, we boarded a school bus headed for Midway School. A picture of that bus accompanies this column. The bus was a Model "T" Ford with pull down shades and its battery sitting on the running board. The driver was C. L "Buddy" McGuirt.

Column: Stand up to bullies, don’t be one

Halfway through the first semester of the new school year, and I've been reminded that bullying happens, every school year, every day. Recently, and without going into detail, I read about an instance of bullying on Facebook and decided to respond.

Column: Chamber will focus on workforce challenges

In meeting with and talking to chamber members and other businesses, I hear time and time again that their biggest challenge is workforce. Their challenges can range from finding people to fill open jobs to finding people who can meet expectations to stay on the job. Because of the significant need, the chamber is going to place greater focus on businesses' workforce needs this fiscal year.

Column: Saving lives together

Last week, South Carolina was confronted with the threat of devastating weather as Hurricane Florence took an angry path straight towards the Carolinas. There is nothing like the threat of a natural disaster to bring a community together, and Kershaw County residents proved just that. Hundreds of people were affected, leaving countless numbers of homeless animals in need of urgent care. Thanks to an army of caring people, Fostering Foster was able to answer the desperate plea from Horry County Animal Care and Control to help them evacuate their shelter. As a result, today there are 25 canine evacuees that ...
