Civics Lessons

Empowered by a community who understood the value of their youth program, a diverse group of area teens set aside other interest to participate in community events. While it was routine – and always fun – for each member of the corps to take part in local activities, those same activities served to teach important lessons about civic responsibility.

Farming and Politics

This column isn't about today's political climate and agriculture. Instead let's focus on the political impact farmers have had on this nation as we celebrate Independence Day, specifically our Presidents. How many of this nation's leaders were farmers? What history and myth surrounds their backgrounds? Maybe more than you think aside from the more obvious ones.

Rebel Flag the Ultimate Dog Whistle

Since its reintroduction on the grounds of the South Carolina Capitol in 1961 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the start of the Civil War, the Confederate flag has been the source of controversy with a regularity approaching that of a Madonna comeback album. Sadly, it has been thrust into the news once more because some kid who loved it went crazy and committed an atrocity. A racially charged atrocity. Yes. Again.
