  • Turn good lunchboxes into great lunchboxes

    While moms want to make sure their kids eat a healthier lunch at school, it’s not always easy packing lunches that are good for them.

    Food and lifestyle expert Evette Rios has five easy tips to help families pack a healthier lunch and turn a good lunchbox into a great lunchbox:

  • Kershaw man dies after falling from tree

    A Kershaw man died Saturday evening, Aug. 18, after falling from a tree onto several rocks along the Catawba River in the Bell Town community. 

    Robert Nichols, 43, was at Cedar Creek Reservoir’s Stumpy Pond boat landing, with several family members when the accident happened about 6:20 p.m., said Lancaster County Deputy Coroner Tony Broome.

    “He (Nichols) was diving probably 40 to 50 feet out from a tree into the water,” Broome said. “As he was climbing the tree, he fell down against some very sharp, jagged rocks.”

  • It’s a dream we all share

    Morgan doesn’t look too happy in the photo. He’s wearing a long-sleeve dress shirt and tie – and shorts.
    And Michael? He has sort of a why-do-I-have-to-do-this look on his face.
    They’re sitting side-by-side, bookbags on their backs, on the front porch of our new home in Albemarle.
    It’s our traditional “first day of school” photo.
    And it truly is a “first day” for both of them.

  • Celebrate farmers markets during month of August

    What a busy summer it’s been at the S.C. Department of Agriculture. Plus, it’s been a typical South Carolina summer, which can be unbearably hot, sometimes rainy, sometimes dry. We certainly feel sympathy for so many parts of the country that are absolutely parched.

  • Summer heat and drought can cause serious trouble for trees

    Most of S.C. remains in a moderate to severe drought. The effects of drought on trees can be either short term or long term. Short dry periods might cause wilting, leaf scorch (edges turned brown) and possibly defoliation in hardwoods or dropping of yellowed needles in pines. Generally, healthy trees have built-in mechanisms to cope with short term lack of water.

  • Despite Hollywood, the Ringo Kid lives on

    The late 1930’s were the heyday of the Saturday morning cowboy picture shows.

    Just when I was getting big enough to walk from Chesterfield Avenue to the Imperial Theater on Main Street all by myself, the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, changing things forever.

    Our Western heroes of the silver screen were known as much by their attire as their looks.
    All the fellas had their favorites.

    Mine was clean-cut Hopalong Cassidy, who in real life was William Boyd.

  • LCSD creates faculty/staff lip dub
