  • Florida jury failed justice for Caylee

    In all professions, there are some who are excellent, most who are average, and some who are not-so-good. As we have viewed the justice for Caylee in the Florida court, we have witnessed some of the worst on the Casey Anthony defense team.
    The purpose of this criminal trial was to provide justice for Caylee. Under our Constitution and general statutes, it is important for all to understand that all accused of crime are innocent until proven guilty. All trial witnesses and evidence must be open and honest.

  • Dr. Adams shared garden, stories, dreams with resident

    I work at the information office in Kershaw for the Haile Gold Mine. My dad from Tennessee passed away last Christmas.   
    Immediately after, Dr. Ira Adams began coming to visit me. I only wish I had told him how much I enjoyed his visits. He reminded me so much of my dad, how he talked of his gardening. He would come through the door with a bag of collards. He was the one who introduced us to the South Carolina greens.

President Barack Obama, “the anointed one,” has hit the greens more in his first two years than Bush did in his eight years. Not much from the lame-stream media on this.

  • Bottom-feeding journalism's fall can't come fast enough

    The crumbling of Rupert Murdoch’s media empire is a huge boon to mankind worldwide. Imagine that God-awful propaganda machine that redefines bottom-feeding for conservatives and idiots (same thing) silenced. All Fox, NY Post, Wall Street Journal, many others internationally, all gone.

  • More work needed to reduce U.S. obesity rate

    Efforts to reduce obesity in the U.S. are making some progress, but, as a nation we continue to pack on the pounds and put our overall health at risk.

    A report out last week from the Trust For America’s Health and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation noted that every state except Colorado has an obesity rate of 20 percent or more.
