Beckham: The local Valentine, Cupid

WWII brought about the greatest migration of U. S. citizens. Millions joined the Armed Forces and went to training facilities outside of their local area and many were transferred overseas, while the need for mass production moved countless citizens to new locales to find jobs in industry.

Joseph: Thank a teacher

At the close of this school year, I will have spent 16 consecutive years at Camden Elementary School, yet in four-months, I will no longer have children meandering through its halls. It will mark the end of countless bagged lunches, signed report cards, book bags and hours of recess.

And in my genuine reflections, what (or who) has made the most significant imprint on my mind? My thoughts ...

Arrants: Learning to fly

Leaving Kershaw County after living here for more than 25 years has brought a great deal of excitement about the wonderful road ahead and, as with times of change, a touch of nostalgia. I'm not nearly as prone to staring back at the past as I once was. I'd much rather focus on where I am and what lies ahead than sit around and wax nostalgically about high school days. I'm nothing like the bumpkin inside a tiny world I was then and I take a great deal of pride in that. I'd also like to ...

Gunn: LiveWell Kershaw

Partnerships are powerful, and I can think of few better examples than LiveWell Kershaw. This collaboration connects KershawHealth, the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina, the Community Medical Clinic of Kershaw County, Access Kershaw, and a host of other local agencies in an innovative initiative to make Kershaw County the healthiest county in South Carolina, and to become a model for other communities across South Carolina and the nation.

Scully: Black History Month

This community witnesses all-encompassing friendships among people of different educational backgrounds, income levels, and races. For some people, however, when it comes to race, the glass remains half-empty; they find it hard to move on from a difficult and painful past. Many others, to the contrary, celebrate our emergence as a nation that reflects all God's children and gives hope that persons from different backgrounds can combine energies and ideas to create a spectacular new culture, as we are doing.
