    Little League thankful for support

    To the editor:

    The Anderson County Little League Board would like to take the opportunity to express gratitude to the parents, the managers and coaches, the 83 sponsors and the over 100 volunteers who have made the 2009 Little League baseball season a great experience for the youth of Anderson County.

  • COLUMN: Kudos to caring officials

    Last year around this time, I wrote a column praising the efforts of the “behind-the-scenes stars” of the county’s DARE graduation.

    I still stand behind every word of that column, but this year deserves a follow-up.

    For some reason or another, I only attended the picnic at the park portion of last year’s festivities.

    This year, I got to see the other side of the event — the actual graduation ceremony full of accolades and guest speakers.

  • COLUMN: Keeping up with technology, news

    Keeping up with technology is growing more and more important by the day. Unfortunately, I’ve never been the best at staying on the cutting edge. Fortunately, my husband is.

    One of the things he has introduced me to in the past couple months is Google Reader. Basically it’s a centralized place I can go to read news that I pick out by subscribing to RSS feeds. I don’t understand it all or how it works really, but I do enjoy getting news tailored to my interests.

  • COLUMN: Two ways to skin a cat

    Column as I see ’em

    The past week of watching the workings of local government prove that there truly is more than one way to skin a cat.

    While there’s no doubt Judge-Executive Steve Cornish could do very nicely, thank you, without being nitpicked by magistrates over his proposed budget, that it’s happening really is a good thing.

    Cornish says he did his level best in assembling a budget he thinks is fiscally responsible during a poor economy.
