  • Meatloaf is comfort food at its very best

    There are millions of meatloaf recipes, including the fool-proof one your grandma came up with years ago.

    Regardless of ingredients, two factors make meatloaf the ideal comfort food.

    First, it’s quite economical and can feed a family of six for less than $10.

    “The Big C” – cancer – is no respector of age, race, or gender.

  • Those who are struggling need our help

    There was a story about the unemployment rate in Lancaster County dropping from 15.6 percent in December 2010 to 14.6 percent in January in the March 20 edition of The Lancaster News.
    Statistically, that appears to be good news – that our county’s jobless rate dropped 1 percent. But those statistics mean nothing to those who’ve lost their jobs, exhausted their unemployment benefits and drained their 401k and bank accounts.

  • Open government promoted on Madison’s birthday

    I was recently honored by the S.C. State Library for my work in creating the state’s transparency website. It was part of an awards ceremony recognizing individuals and government agencies that advance the cause of open government.
     The ceremony was held on March 16, which was quite fitting. For one thing, March 16 is the birthday of James Madison, one of our nation’s earliest advocates of government transparency.
