A special delivery for Hailey recently showed up at the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO). A $100 check -- in the form of a donation -- for Hailey the bloodhound.
It's been a week, and my forehead is still peeling.
WASHINGTON -- It is perhaps time to stop wondering what The Donald's got the others ain't got.
About this time every year, there are three words that mean different things to different people: "Back to school!" I noticed several days ago where someone on Facebook posted that very amusing Staples' back to school commercial, "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year." I have to say it's one of my favorites, though not necessarily because of the obvious. It's because of the manner in which the dad is frolicking through the aisles of Staples as he tosses miscellaneous school supplies into his shopping cart as his rather unhappy kids stand by and watch.

WASHINGTON -- It took three videos showing Planned Parenthood doctors and executives discussing the culling and retailing of aborted baby parts, but Hillary Clinton finally managed to say that she found the videos "disturbing."
Most people want recreational walking and hiking trails in the city and county. Many are not aware of the 2013 Greenways Plan (Kershaw County Bicycle, Pedestrian, and Greenways Plan) which envisions a county-wide network of safe, well-planned walking and biking trails for the whole family, trails to eventually connect with the statewide, 425-mile Palmetto Trail.
It was a perfect fall Friday night in October of 1962 and Zemp Stadium was packed as fans eagerly waited for the contest between the two best programs in the state. Unfortunately the fans had to sit through the first half of a football game between two less than mediocre teams before seeing the Brooklyn-Cayce and Camden bands perform. B-C and Camden would soon clash in the state's band championship for the first place trophy, but an ugly incident at the end of the first half caused the football coach to be fired that night.
WASHINGTON -- No doubt you have butterflies just thinking about Thursday's first GOP debate.
For awhile there, the older I got, the more I wondered how that happened.
WASHINGTON -- One week, Beirut and Paris; the next week, Mali. The nightmare is young. Where next?
