David and Goliath

When so many negative occurrences receive coverage in newspapers, television, and gossip, many people forget that positives existed and still exist, especially teachers. I shall never forget David and a few others like him who participated in speech and essay contests for which they received no scholastic rewards and expended a great deal of effort. Of course, everyone knows that the most feared activity is public speaking. In fact, I once told my participants that they should always remember that every member in the audience applauded their bravery. When I was the representative of the school for every speech contest ...

Offseason moves will help Braves whip Washington

If the Atlanta Braves are going to capitalize on last season's success, they'll need two key ingredients in 2013. The first will be finding the offensive numbers to replace retired third baseman Chipper Jones. A clubhouse staple since he arrived on the scene in 1995, his 14 homers and .287 batting average in 2012 were obviously down numbers for the future Hall of Famer. However, for a team that ranked 21st in overall batting last season, any player with an average over .250 is considered a gift.

6 February 1983: I board a greyhound bus to Fort Benning, Ga. I am on my way to Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training (AIT). Thirteen and half weeks later I graduate as an infantry soldier. I immediately report to Airborne school just across post. Four weeks later, after earning my coveted Airborne wings, I get orders for Fort Bragg, N.C.

KershawHealth centennial marks a continued sacred trust

The celebration of KershawHealth's centennial year is an excellent time to take stock and focus for the future. As always, the starting point must be our mission -- providing excellent care for everyone in Kershaw County, a mission that has remained unchanged for 100 years. It is a sacred trust, passed down by generations of hospital and community leaders who made the kinds of decisions necessary to maintain and support that mission. It seems appropriate to reflect on some of those defining moments in our history and the ways in which they have shaped how we provide excellent care for ...

Family breakdown goes biracial

I know from past experience that I'm going to upset some folks by saying this, so brace yourselves: marriage is very important and beneficial to the raising of children, but there's little evidence that it fights crime.

His name is Richard, but we called him Chief. No, he was not a member of the police force nor was he a local Native American Tribal elder. He was, and is, a Chief Warrant Officer Four (CW4) in the Army, or "Chief" in the slang terminology of the military.
