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.

Jenkins: Diversity

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to join the Martin Luther King walk in Sumter. The truth is, I had the opportunity to join it in the past, too, but I did not.

Rich: Glorious Grant

It happened a few months back. My father-in-law celebrated, to our great joy, his 88th birthday. There was no pomp or circumstance involved. He abhors that.

Phillips: Using technology for good

In the past two weeks, I have written, respectively, about some of the wonderful things we have here in Kershaw County and how often those things get taken for granted.
