Pigskin love

This past Sunday, I walked into my neighbor's house and was met by a wave of burgundy, gold and white. I quickly wondered how I could hide the obnoxious blue and white scarf I was wearing. Where were the other Dallas fans, I thought. And then from across the room, I spotted a lone comrade donning the Cowboys jersey. Two fans are always better than one. However, three interceptions later, the Redskins are in the playoffs and Dallas goes home. Maybe next year, Tony. I continue to be amazed at the enthusiasm and allegiance of the American football fan ...

Print’s longtime passing

HASHTAG, America -- It is comforting to think of death as a passing rather than an end. In that vein, I prefer to think of Steve Jobs' final words as editorial commentary: "Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow."

At city hall

When people ask me, "How's it going?" I tell them, "exhilarating," a new word for me.

Too many people who should not have guns do

On the day after the recent massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., police in Newport Beach, Calif., took a man into custody for allegedly firing more than 50 rounds from a semi-automatic handgun in the parking lot of a shopping mall. He aimed into the air and no one was hit, though one person was hurt slightly while running away. Police say 42-year-old Marcos Gurrola was destitute and frustrated with his circumstances. Firing dozens of rounds at the sky was his way of venting.

Voters are my People of the Year

When I thought long and hard about who or what to write about for my annual, year-end "...of the Year" column, and when I looked back at what appeared to be 2012's biggest stories in the C-I, the choice was clear: the voters of Kershaw County.

A family history of love through sacrifice

Like many of her neighbors, Margarette Cunningham Moss grew up "very poor." Moss' mother, a housewife, taught her seven daughters to do the household chores typical of those who owned a farm and an orchard on Crooked Island in the 1940s. A typical day might include hand-washing clothes; cleaning their one-bedroom home; making homemade bread, accompanied by tea with leaves picked fresh off a tree; spending a few hours in their fields picking pigeon peas, cassava, fruit and anything else her family planted that season; sewing for the Red Cross and herself; and infrequent trips to neighboring "settlements." The family ...

Three lives for Christmas trees

I've always liked Christmas tree farms. There's something nostalgic about them, plus I've always liked the way they look. Like toy soldiers standing at attention, Christmas trees are stately, orderly, dressed for service and have a presence in the landscape. They may also have as many as three lives.

NRA vs. common sense

When the National Rifle Association promised "meaningful contributions" to prevent another massacre like the recent horror in Newtown, Conn., I didn't expect much, but I hoped for more than what we got.

KCSO need more funding

Last year the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office responded to approximately 43,000 calls for service. We did this with at most, 6 deputies per shift. Today as I am writing this we have 4 deputies covering the entire county. Most people in Kershaw County don't know that the Lancaster Co. Sheriff's Department also answered about 43,000 calls for service last year. (Lancaster County is significantly smaller in area than Kershaw County. They have about 10,000 more residents.)The difference is they handled this with 12 deputies per shift. As a result Lancaster's response times ...

Through a lens, lightly

WASHINGTON -- In today's world of social media, where everyone's every little thing is on display, it is sometimes difficult to recall a time when exhibitionism wasn't ubiquitous and was, in fact, not admired.

Getting through the holidays

This is turning out to be one of the tougher holidays for a lot of Americans. The economy continues to be a problem as we nervously wait to see if we'll go over a fiscal cliff, and the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn., has cast a pall over the holiday spirit.

A cry for justice

Well, folks, after more than three months of speculation, of debates, of arguing, bickering and online name calling, a grand jury in St. Louis County, Mo., finally came to a conclusion earlier this week. The 12-person panel was presented with and studied all the evidence in the case of the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in August and concluded there were no indications that Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson committed any crime when he shot and killed Brown.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Yes, I know it's only just Thanksgiving but, admit it, many of you will be getting out the holiday lights and wreaths from the attic this weekend or going to buy your Christmas tree! Here at the city, we've had to start early as it takes time for us to deck the halls for December. Our street and electric department crews have been diligently working to decorate for Christmas. Thanks to their efforts, we'll have embellished light poles throughout the city and a lot of lit trees, too.

WASHINGTON -- By now, most Americans probably have formed an opinion about what comedian Bill Cosby did or didn't do sexually to or with at least 16 women beginning in the 1960s.

Cooking Thanksgiving food with a friend

It started accidentally. Some good ideas and memorable moments are like that. They aren't planned. They're born, bringing with them an ability to nudge a way naturally into our lives and become a tradition.
