County looking at surveillance system for courthouse
Panic alarms and password controlled alarm system would also be installed
Charles Warner
Editor
In the near future, a thief
or a vandal who manages to
break in to the Union County
Courthouse will find their activities caught on camera for use
by law enforcement in bringing
them to justice.
Union County Council voted
unanimously at its Dec. 13 meeting to authorize Clerk of Court
Freddie Gault and Supervisor
Tommy Sinclair to seek bids
for the installation a new security system at the courthouse
that will includes surveillance
cameras placed throughout the
building. Gault said Thursday
that installation of such a system is the result of a process
initiated at the direction of the
Chief Justice of the SC Supreme
Court.
“Several years ago, Chief
Justice Toal ordered that every
county should have a security
committee responsible for the
security of the courthouse,”
Gault said. “She specified who
would be on that committee and
here in Union County the committee is composed of myself,
Judge Robert Gist, Sheriff David
Taylor, Supervisor Tommy
Sinclair, Chief Sam White,
Emergency Preparedness Officer
Robbie Hines, Solicitor Kevin
Brackett, Public Defender Eric
Delaney, and Chief Magistrate
Jimmy Crocker.”
Gault said the focus of the
committee is determining any
and all flaws in courthouse security and how to fix them.
“The committee’s main purpose is to look at the courthouse
and determine what safety
issues need to be addressed and
then see to it they’re addressed
and the proper procedures put
in place,” he said. “One of the
main concerns of the committee
is the lack of security cameras
or security system in the courthouse. This courthouse being
so big that even though all the
offices are locked and personnel walk through the building
at the end of the day, there are
still places where a person could
hide until after everyone was
gone.”
Acting on the behalf of the
committee, Gault said he and
Sinclair had some security
experts come in and analyze the
courthouse to determine what
systems could be put in place to
properly secure it, both during
and after business hours.
“We had them come in and
see what was best for the courthouse such as the best places
for security cameras,” Gault
said. “Another thing would be
panic alarms in the courthouse
offices that employees could
use to summon help if something happened during the day.
There would also be a security
alarm that once the courthouse
is closed you not only need a
key to get in, but also a security
code to disable the alarm once
you’re inside. All of this would
go directly to 911.”

us — America’s school children.
More than 20 percent of the nation’s counties saw significant increases in
poverty among school-aged children between 2007 and 2010. Nationally, 22
percent of our children are living in poverty.

TODAY IN HISTORY
By The Associated Press
Today is Friday, Dec.
23, the 357th day of
2011. There are eight
days left in the year.
Today’s Highlight in
History:
On Dec. 23, 1941,
during World War II,
American forces on
Wake Island surrendered to the Japanese.
On this date:
In 1783, George
Washington resigned as
commander in chief of
the Continental Army
and retired to his home
at Mount Vernon, Va.
In 1788, Maryland
passed an act to cede
an area “not exceeding
ten miles square” for
the seat of the national
government; about 2/3
of the area became the
District of Columbia.
In 1823, the poem
“Account of a Visit from
St. Nicholas” was published anonymously in
the Troy (N.Y.) Sentinel;
the verse, more popularly known as “‘Twas
the
Night
Before
Christmas,” was later
attributed to Clement C.
Moore.
In 1893, the Engelbert
Humperdinck
opera
“Haensel und Gretel”
was first performed, in
Weimar, Germany.
In 1928, the National
Broadcasting Company
set up a permanent,
coast-to-coast network.
In
1948,
former
Japanese premier Hideki
Tojo and six other
Japanese war leaders
were executed in Tokyo.
In 1968, 82 crew
members of the U.S.
intelligence ship Pueblo
were released by North
Korea, 11 months after
they had been captured.
In 1975, Richard S.
Welch, the Central
Intelligence Agency station chief in Athens, was
shot and killed outside
his home by the militant
group November 17.
In 1986, the experimental airplane Voyager,
piloted by Dick Rutan
and Jeana Yeager, completed the first nonstop,
non-refueled
round-the-world flight
as it returned safely to
Edwards Air Force Base
in California.
In 1991, fire destroyed
a house in Corsicana,
Texas, killing three
young children; their
father, Cameron Todd
Willingham, was convicted of starting the
blaze and was executed
in 2004, although some
experts raised questions
about whether the fire
had been deliberately
set.
Ten years ago: Israel
barred Yasser Arafat
from making his annu-
al Christmas Eve visit
to Bethlehem, the traditional
birthplace
of Jesus. Argentina’s
interim
president,
Adolfo Rodriguez Saa
(sah), was inaugurated.
Time magazine named
New York City Mayor
Rudolph Giuliani its
Person of the Year for
his steadfast response to
the 9/11 terrorist attack.
Five years ago: The
U.N. Security Council
voted unanimously to
impose sanctions on Iran
for refusing to suspend
uranium enrichment;
Iran immediately rejected the resolution. Israeli
Prime Minister Ehud
Olmert and Palestinian
President

LAW & ORDER
Man arrested in connection
with Dec. 10 altercation
Charles Warner
Editor
A Union man was
arrested Tuesday for
allegedly hitting and
robbing a woman earlier
this month.
Ja r v i s
Sentel
Cunningham, 22, 176
S edgefield
Drive,
Union, is charged by
the Union Public Safety
Department with criminal domestic violence,
strong arm robbery, and
trespasing after notice.
The incident report
states that an officer
was dispatched Dec. 10
to 221 Gault Avenue in
reference to a domestic dispute. The officer
met with Lachandra
Charmine Fleming, who
said she’d had a physi-
cal altercation with her
boyfriend, Cunningham,
who she said also took
$180 out of her pocketbook. The report
states the officer noticed
Fleming was bleeding
from the top of her forehead.
Fleming said she’d
been told by Cunningham
to come to the the residence at Gault Avenue
to get him when he was
ready to come home. She
said when she arrived
she knocked on the door
and heard someone say
come in. The report,
however, states that a
witness said Fleming
entered the house without knocking on the
door. Fleming said when
she entered the building she saw Cunningham
was with another woman
and she told him to leave
the apartment. She said
she put her hand to
Cunningham’s face and
that’s when she hit him
in the face, causing him
to bleed. It was then they
had a physical altercation
during which Fleming
said Cunningham kicked
her to the ground, pulled
her pocketbook away
from her, took $180 in
cash out of it, and then
ran to the top of a nearby
hill.
The report states the
officer could not locate
Cunningham but another officer was able to
reach him by phone. The
second officer told the
responding officer that
Cunningham would not
return to the apartment
because of a trespassing notice against him.
A witness state that
Cunningham was at the
property before officers
arrived.
Officers then filed
the criminal domestic
violence, strong arm
robbery and trespassing after notice charges
against Cunningham but
were not able to take him
into custody until late
Tuesday morning.
The incident report
states that Fleming, 33,
219 Church St.,#3A,
Union, was charged with
criminal domestic violence and issued a no
trespassing notice for
221 Gault Avenue. She
was taken into custody
just after midnight Dec.
11.
One year ago: Mail
bombs blamed on anarchists exploded at the
Swiss and Chilean
embassies in Rome, seriously wounding two people. Chicago Board of
Election Commissioners
ruled that former White
House chief of staff
Rahm Emanuel was a
resident of the city and
therefore eligible to run
for mayor.

Secret Santa’s Helpers
Today, Dec. 21, is
Annette Sullivan’s birthday, so this morning we
sang Happy Birthday to
her. Annette was a great
big help, traveling anywhere we wanted her to
go to pick up toys. She
never grumbled. Even
her sidekick Nate was a
good sport, whenever we
asked him to empty a car
with toys, even if it was
raining, he never grumbled either. Annette
and I started working
on Secret Santas about
10 years ago or longer,
at that time she worked
at the power company
and the men that worked
there really enjoyed buying toys and clothes and
couldn’t wait until we
called on them the next
year. But a few of us
just decided to grab the
challenge and go with it,
and as I said before we
could not have accom-
plished all that we had
to do without your help,
and you know who all of
you are.

DMV official: S.C. board used flawed voter data
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP)
— The state Election
Commission knew it was
using inaccurate data
when it released reports
that show nearly 240,000
active and inactive voters
lacked driver's licenses
or ID cards and could
face problems voting in
person under a new state
election law, a South
Carolina motor vehicles
official said Thursday.
The law, now under
review by the U.S.
Department of Justice,
requires the state to
determine how many
voters lack state-issued
IDs so that the Election
Commission can work to
make sure they know of
law changes. The DMV
will issue them free state
photo
identification
cards.
On
Wednesday,
Department of Motor
Vehicles
Executive
Director Kevin Shwedo
sent the state's attorney general an analysis
showing that 207,000 of
those voters live in other
states, allowed their ID
cards to expire, probably
have licenses with names
that didn't match voter
records or were dead.
"It ain't nearly as bad
as was being portrayed,"
Shwedo said in an interview Thursday. He said
the commission created
"artificially high numbers
to excite the masses."
Shwedo said that when
he first saw an Election
Commission report in
September
showing
more than 200,000 people without state-issued
photo IDs, he knew it was
wrong.
Shwedo said he told
Marci
Andino,
the
Election Commission's
executive director, that
the information had to be
flawed. She knew there
were shortcomings in the
analysis of the more than
2.7 million registered voters, Shwedo said.
"The
Election
Commission knew that
some of their data was
inaccurate," Shwedo said.
"If you know, for example, that there are 37,295
dead people in your database and acknowledge
them as potential voters,
you are either stupid or
you are disingenuous,"
Shwedo said.
"Why would you spend
a nickel trying to hunt
them down?" Shwedo
asked.
Election Commission
spokesman
Chris
Whitmire said the agency will eliminate nearly
60,000 deceased people
and individuals whose
names didn't match. For
instance, some records
may show a voter's first
name as Robert, but the
DMV record may have it
as Bob. That voter would
have a driver's license,
but wouldn't show up as
having one in the data
the Election Commission
is using.
Shwedo said he needs
accurate information as
he prepares to issue identification cards for free
to those votes. They cost
about $8 each to prepare.
Andino said in a letter
to Shwedo on Thursday
that an updated list will
exclude people who have
died or whose names
don't match. But the
other information "does
not rise to the level of
allowing this agency to
remove those voters from
the comparison list,"
Andino wrote.
"While there are safeguards in place to prevent
a voter from being disenfranchised, we would
rather err on the side
of notifying more voters
than necessary rather
than missing a voter who
needs this critical information," she said.
But some of the issues
Shwedo raised don't come
into play with the law.
For instance, Shwedo's
analysis showed 91,466
people were dropped
from
DMV
records
because other states
had issued them driver's
licenses. Whitmire said
those people may still live
in South Carolina and be
eligible to vote and the
law requires that they be
notified that a photo ID is
needed to vote in person.
Shwedo sent his analysis to the state attorney
general's office as the
state responds to Justice
Department questions.
Because of past voting
rights violations, all
South Carolina voting
and election law changes
are reviewed by federal
authorities. A decision
could come by Tuesday.
Whitmire said the commission is preparing to
implement the law before
the Jan. 21 GOP presidential primary.
The findings also raise
questions about the commission's information on
voters.
For instance, the DMV
found that the Election
Commission had "sev-

Federal judge halts key
parts of S.C. immigrant law
COLUMBIA,
S.C.
(AP) — A federal judge
on Thursday blocked
several provisions of
South Carolina's tough
new immigration law
from taking effect New
Year's Day, including a
requirement for law officers to check the immigration status of people
they pull over if officers
suspect they are in the
country illegally.
U.S. District Judge
Richard Gergel's ruling
also blocked sections
making it a state crime
not to carry immigration
paperwork or for illegal
immigrants to transport
or house themselves.
"While the Court does
not doubt the good faith
of the South Carolina
General Assembly in
attempting to address
the immigration issue,
the Constitution of
the United States and
the (Immigration and
Nationality Act) have
placed the policy-making
role regarding immigration in the hands of the
national government,"
the judge wrote. "It is
clear to the Court that
Congress did not intend
to allow the state any
further role beyond
arresting persons allegedly harboring or transporting unlawfully present persons."
The
federal
government sued South
Carolina earlier this
year over, challenging
the constitutionality of
the law set to take effect
Jan. 1.

As an added measure
of security, Gault said the
hard drive for the system
would not be kept at the
courthouse but at a secure
location elsewhere. He
said this would ensure that
if someone did break into
the courthouse or remain
behind after hours that
they couldn’t destroy the
system and the footage of
their presence in the building.

he and Sinclair receive
the bids they will present
them to council for consideration. He said he expects

The election commission's Whitmire said
"it's interesting, but
they're not actionable
items." Whitmire said he
couldn't explain all of the
oddities, but the Myrtle
Beach addresses only
suggest that people had
bad addresses on their
voter registration cards.
He noted that state law
allows people in jail
awaiting trial to register
and vote.
Shwedo wrote that the
commission "even told
us that they knowingly
changed Social Security
numbers by a single digit
when they moved from
one county to another
because their computers were incapable of
acknowledging the same
number as part of the
transfer process from
one county to another."
Shwedo said he didn't
think there was an effort
to do anything wrong,
but the practice could
have resulted in people
being counted twice.
Whitmire said he didn't
know details about the
Social Security number
problems Shwedo cited.
The agency is creating a
final list now.
Shwedo told the attorney general’s office he
wants review that data,
too. “We now wait
patiently to see whether
the SCEC will acknowledge our research or
knowingly pass on flawed
data.”

Occupy doesn’t have a
platform — it is a platform
The Occupy movement comes
under frequent attack from the
institutional Left (and, it goes
without saying, from the liberal
establishment) for not offering a
clear list of official
demands — for, in
Kevin
other words, not
Carson
offering a platform.
Contributing
But that criticism
misses the point.
Columnist
Occupy doesn’t have
a single platform, in
the sense of a list of demands. But
it is a platform — a collaborative
platform, like a wiki. Occupy isn’t
a unified movement with a single
list of demands and an official
leadership to state them. Rather,
Occupy offers a toolkit and a
brand name to a thousand different movements with their own
agendas, their own goals, and
their own demands — with only
their hatred of Wall Street and
the corporate state in common,
and the Occupy brand as a source
of strength and identity.
Although the ends are quite
different, the model of organization is much like that of al
Qaeda: An essentially leaderless
organization, a loose network of
cells, each of which adopts the
al Qaeda brand or franchise for
its own purposes. It’s a much
more effective use of resources
to provide a common platform
and then let a thousand flowers
bloom.
A conventional, hierarchical
activist institution wastes enormous resources on administrative apparatus and endless negotiations just to get everyone on
the same page, before anyone can
do anything.
A common platform allows any
number of movements, made up
of voluntary aggregations of individuals with shared goals, to build
on it on a modular basis, and to
act without waiting for permission from the headquarters of
the One Big Movement. And
whenever they do anything that
seems to work well, any other
node in the network can adopt
that tactic as its own without
asking anyone’s leave.
That’s why the glocal Occupy
movement is throwing off innovations like a fission reaction
throws off neutrons. If anything,
it’s done so even more since the
wave of shutdowns in the U.S.
divorced it from occupation as a
primary tactic and scattered its
seeds to the wind.
But let’s go back a ways. The
Pentagon Papers weren’t published pursuant to an official
decision by a nationwide antiwar movement, and Woodward
and Bernstein didn’t try to found
a national political movement to
impeach Nixon. In both cases,
the immediate actors simply
published the information, and
allowed anyone who would to
leverage that information. They
thereby created a free platform
that could be developed by any
number of antiwar and anti-Nixon
activists for their own ends.
Fast forward to Summer 2010.
Julian Assange simply published
the cable dump at Wikileaks. Every
single activist movement that piggybacked on that platform, starting with the uprising in Tunisia,
did so on its own initiative, making — its own judgment — the
best use of the free, common
platform offered by Assange. So
it’s gone from Tunisia to Egypt, to
the Arab Spring, to Madison, to
the demonstrations in Britain and
Spain and Greece, to Occupy Wall
Street, and back out to the global
Occupy movment in hundreds of
cities around the world.
Now, with the Occupy movement (thanks to Bloomberg et.
al) no longer wedded to occupying public squares, the wave
of innovations seems to roll in
on a weekly basis. First Occupy
Our Homes, and now Occupy the
Ports.
According to Lester MacGurdy
at Oakland Occupier, Occupy
Oakland has begun to deal
with police evictions by retreating, waiting until the cops are
gone, then going back. Police are
essentially heavy infantry who
move slowly and ponderously
into place, and can move only as
quickly as their bloated logistical
train moves with them. Protestors
are light infantry who can disperse and reconcentrate on short
notice. “The tactical evolution
that evolved relies on two military
tactics that are thousands of years
old — the tactical superiority of
light infantry over heavy infantry,
and the tactical superiority of the
retreat over the advance.”

Too many American children live in poverty
POLICIES
The Census Bureau
recently delivered some
disturbing news about
how the Great Recession
and its aftermath are
affecting the most vulnerable among us —
America’s school children.
More than 20 percent
of the nation’s counties
saw significant increases in poverty among
school-aged
children
between 2007 and 2010.
Nationally, 22 percent of
our children are living in
poverty.
This poverty increase
has hit large, urban
school systems the hardest, with 96 of the 100
biggest school districts
reporting increases in the
number of poor children.
In Detroit, for example,
47 percent of school children are poor. In New
York City, the rate stands
at 29 percent.
This is a moral outrage. While the debate
drags on in

and
taxes, a real
and preventable tragedy
is unfolding before our
eyes. Through no fault
of their own, millions
of children whose parents have lost jobs need
free school lunches, and
in many cases are going
without health care. As
depicted in a recent “60
Minutes” segment, some
are homeless and living
in cars.
The new Census data
comes on the heels of
news in September that
Mailing address/subscription rates
the number of impoverished Americans has
risen to 46.2 million.
That’s 15 percent of us,
the largest number in 52
years.
Many previously middle-class families are
finding themselves standing in line at food banks
and homeless shelters.
And, according to the
Children’s Defense Fund,
one in three AfricanAmerican and Latino
children are living in poverty. This should be a
loud and urgent wake-up
call to Congress and policymakers.
If Congress fails to
act, already struggling
families face the end of
the payroll tax cut in the
New Year. This would
add about $1,000 to an
average family’s tax bill.

Friend

Dear Annie: My friend
“Candi” regularly drinks
and drives. She often
drinks at a friend’s house
and then drives herself
home. Other times, she
drinks at home and then
goes out. There are even
times when she takes
her teenage daughter in the
car after
she’s been
drinking.
I’ve confronted
Annie’s Candi only
Mailbox to be told
that
she
doesn’t have a drinking
problem and I should
be quiet. But, Annie, I
can’t tell you how many
times her children and
I have found her passed
out in the yard, on the
floor, at the dinner table
or behind the wheel of
her car while it’s in the
driveway.
Candi is endangering
her life and the lives of
everyone around her. I
can no longer idly sit
back and let this continue. What’s worse is
that she has a legal handgun, and I am scared
to death that she will
use it while she’s drunk.
Is there anything I can
do to convince her she
needs help? — Looking
for Some Answers
Dear Looking: Candi
sounds like a tragedy
waiting to happen. We
don’t know whether she
will ever admit that she
needs help, and you can’t
force her. So, if you know
when she is driving
drunk, call the police. If
she is drinking in your
presence, take away
her car keys. Caution
Candi’s daughter not
to get into the car with
her mother when she’s
been drinking. Also contact Al-Anon (al-anon.
alateen.org) and suggest
to Candi’s daughter that
she do the same.
Dear Annie: “Clay”
and I are both 23 and
have been friends for
a while. Lately, I’ve
noticed that Clay is dating younger and younger
girls. He seems to go
for the ones under 18.
His current girlfriend
is going to be 15 in a
month.
Clay has told me that
he meets girls in a chat
room specifically for
teens. I’ve been trying
to find a way to talk to
him about this, and I
finally said that I can’t
support his choices. I
told him if he messes up
his life, it’s his problem
and I will not defend
him. He claims he likes
dating younger girls and
is always careful.
I don’t know what
to do anymore. I don’t
want him to get hurt,
but if he gets arrested,
it’s his own fault. Please
help. — Pennsylvania
Dear Pennsylvania:
Clay is being exceedingly reckless by stalking young teenage girls.
(The term for adults
who are attracted to
teenagers
between
the ages of 11 to 14 is
hebephilia.) If Clay has
sex with these girls, he
can be sent to prison,
though it’s possible the
risk excites him. There
may be underlying reasons for his inability
to be attracted to adult
women, but unless he is
willing to address that,
there’s not much more
you can do for him.

CONCEPTIS SUDOKU
by Dave Green
HAPPY BIRTHDAY for Friday, Dec.
23, 2011:
Your emotions come out more
often than you might like this year.
Sometimes they could be disguised
as anger, especially if you have suppressed the original issue or pain.
Learn to detach when your fuse is
about to blow. This issue will be major,
with the potential outcome of greater
self-control. You are in control of
your destiny, if you so choose. If you
are single, note a tendency to attract
emotionally unavailable relationships.
Be careful! If you are attached, the
two of you benefit from time alone
together as a couple. Plan on a special
vacation or several weekends away.
SAGITTARIUS sometimes makes you
uncomfortable.
The Stars Show the Kind of Day
You’ll Have: 5-Dynamic; 4-Positive;
3-Average; 2-So-so; 1-Difficult
ARIES (March 21-April 19)
HHHH Keep reaching for the stars.
Once focused, you could be stunned
by what you can accomplish. Don’t forget a dear friend at a distance. If someone becomes belligerent, it probably is
the result of envy. Tonight: Light up the
night with music.
TAURUS (April 20-May 20)
HHH Deal with another person
directly. You might feel quite irritated
with this person. Clear the air if you
want to manifest the loving vibes of
the next few days. Avoid sarcastic
comments; they will be remembered.
Center on your feelings. Tonight:
Togetherness.
GEMINI (May 21-June 20)
HHHH Someone knocks on your
door, and yet another person does the
same. Your popularity soars, and you
feel much more connected than you
have in a long time. You will need to
make space to complete a certain task.
Join a partner or friend to finish lastminute errands. Tonight: Say “yes.”
CANCER (June 21-July 22)
HHH You make quite an effort
to make a difference to someone.
Don’t make a comment a reason
to become angry. Know that many
people’s nerves are fried. Stay attentive when around machinery, as you
could be unusually distracted. Tonight:
Completing, not beginning.
LEO (July 23-Aug. 22)
HHHHH Your childlike nature
delights in the holiday celebrations.
Whatever plans you have, you delight
in the moment. Your fiery personality
perks up others. Use care with lastminute items. You easily could go
overboard. A little self-discipline goes a
Horoscope
long way. Tonight: Frolic away.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22)
HHHH Tension builds, and you
have difficulty handling it all. You want
to choose a stress-buster instead of
losing your temper with someone who
doesn’t deserve it. Spend some extra
hours at home if possible. Check in
with a family member. Tonight: At
home.
LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22)
HHH You cannot suppress certain
feelings, and they could come out in
a distorted manner, as in sarcasm or
yelling at the cat. With everything at
such a spin, you need to clear the air.
Listen to what is shared by a close
friend. Tonight: Stop and do some
last-minute errands before partaking in
eggnog.
SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21)
HHH A friend could play a strong
role in your mood. Understanding
evolves as you detach. Be careful
when making an attempt to clear the
air. In some fashion, it could be rather
extreme and, in the long run, inadvisable. Remain appropriate. Tonight:
Start sharing holiday wishes.
SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21)
HHHHH If you can tolerate
being pushed by another person, you
deserve kudos. Keep your cool, and
don’t lose sight of certain priorities.
Others count on you getting the job
done. Touch base with an older but
feisty friend. Tonight: Whatever makes
you smile.
CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19)
HHH Know when to pull back and
let others dominate. You might feel as
if you cannot cover all the bases. Don’t
hesitate to ask a question or two. Ask
for help if you need it. Accept what is
happening right now. Tonight: Just flow
with the moment.
AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18)
HHHHH Make sure you indulge
a little and do less of what you think
you must. Stop and take time to visit
with key friends. Take the opportunity
to share your feelings with a special
friend or loved one. This person appreciates your time and caring. Tonight:
Where your friends are.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20)
HHH Establish your role with your
friends or associates. So many people
count on you, you might not have
room for any slack. A partner or relative could be aggravated that you are
spread so thin. Tonight: Make time for
a special person, in the midst of all the
business.

The Union Daily Times/Union, S.C., Friday, December 23, 2011 7
Derik Vanderford/Daily Times
Dennis Russell, Sherri McCutcheon and Amy Austin present another check for $500 to Heather
Patterson of the Foster Parent Association.
Derik Vanderford/Daily Times
Sherri McCutcheon presents a donation of $150 to Chan Henderson and Amy Austin of DSS.
Donate
From page 1
The organization aims
“to build good citizenship
by providing a volunteer
organization of clubs dedicated to serving individual and community needs
with an emphasis on helping people with developmental disabilities.”
These ideals were
apparent during the
local chapter’s Christmas
luncheon at The Inn at
Merridun as club officers
presented donations to
those in need.
Union
Civitan
President
S herri
McCutcheon discussed
the success of the club’s
recent “Christmas at the
Mansion” fundraiser held
at Nicholson Mansion.
Guests enjoyed tours of
the mansion as well as
Christmas piano music,
refreshments, raffles, a
reading of the Christmas
Story from the Bible by
Santa Claus and pictures
with Santa. Proceeds
from the event were to be
split between the Miracle
League of Union County
and the Foster Parent
Association.
M c C u t c h e o n
announced that $1,000
was raised during the
event, and the two organizations were presented
with $500 each.
“We want to give a big
‘thank you’ to Mrs. Lynn
Mornane for offering
her home to help raise
money for the Miracle
League of Union County
and the Foster Parent
Association,” she said.
“Our efforts and hard
work were a great success, and we are very
proud of all the support
from our community!”
Another donation from
the club was also decided
upon during Tuesday’s
luncheon. Civitan vice
president
and
DSS
employee Amy Austin
spoke to the club regarding Christmas gifts traditionally purchased by
DSS for three vulnerable
adults in Union County.
Austin said one of the
individuals enjoys writing
letters and had asked for
stamps and writing materials. Another of the individuals requested items
such as romance novels,
lipstick and nail polish for
Christmas, and the third
asked for items such as
shoes, a night gown and a
Bible. Without hesitation
the club voted to donate
$100 to DSS for the purchase of the Christmas
gifts, and a club member personally donated an
additional $50.
The final donation was
a special one since the
recipient was present
at the luncheon. Austin
recapped a situation
which had already been
voted upon by club members. She said the Foster
Parent Association had
received a letter about
a foster child in Union
County who was in need
of help with learning in
school due to developmental delays which can
be common in foster care
situations. She said at one
time the state gave computers to every school age
foster child but stopped a
couple of years ago due to
a lack of funding.
“The Foster Parent
Association didn’t have
anything, so I automatically went to Civitan
because that’s what we
do,” Austin said.
Austin then presented
a wrapped gift to the
child, and club members
watched with smiles on
their faces as he opened
it to find his brand new
iPad. The youngster’s
face lit up as he thanked
everyone for his special
gift.
“This is the best part
of my job,” Austin said. “I
came back from the beach
today because I didn’t
want to miss this.”
Civitan meetings are
held on the first and third
Tuesday of each month
at The Inn at Merridun
at 1 p.m.
who just need a helping
hand in today’s vicious
economy.
The youth members
realized this first hand
when they got their
chance to serve last
Saturday.
The youth were also
blessed as they talked
with some of those they’d
come to serve.
“They met a 21-yearold man who we’ll call
Timmy,” said Gallman.
“Timmy spoke slowly, but
was quick to pull out his
Bible and begin reading
scripture to the youth and
one dumbfounded youth
leader as they stacked
soup cans on the shelves
in the pantry.”
Gallman said that
Timmy never asked the
kids if they were living
like Christians. He never
condemned them or
spoke harshly to them.
He told about his life:
estrangement from his
mother, being a troubled
child, and most recently
spending Thanksgiving in
jail. He told the youth
how he had to change his
own life. He told them he
asked for forgiveness and
that now he had to live
like he’d been forgiven
because he was.
When meal time came,
Timmy got in line with
everyone else who came
through the door. He ate
his meal, then said goodbye before he walked out
the door.
“Timmy told the youth
that his dream is to be an
evangelist and tell people what God has done
for him,” said Gallman,
“Well, Timmy should
know he is already an
evangelist. He didn’t have
to speak words to evangelize. He did it through
his actions. He never condemned anyone, he realized his own shortcomings and he asked God to
help him. That attitude is
an attitude of Christ. God
bless you, “Timmy,” and
Merry Christmas.”

Surprise! USC, Clemson take championships
COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP)
— The best surprises
are usually the ones you
don't see coming. And
few would've imagined
when the year began the
stunning accomplishments that filled South
Carolina's sports fields,
arenas and stadiums
throughout 2011.
Who thought the baseball Gamecocks capable
of a second straight
College World Series,
that Clemson football
could rise from a losing
season to the Atlantic
Coast Conference championship or that the
country's No. 1 college
prospect would pass up
the likes of Alabama,
Ohio State and Florida
to join Steve Spurrier's
program?
"Back-to-back,
two
years in a row, are
you serious?" South
Carolina third baseman
Adrian Morales said at
the Gamecocks victory
parade last July. "It's
unreal."
Morales could've easily been talking about
several other "unreal"
happenings throughout
Palmetto State sports:
— Clemson basketball
reaching a fifth-straight
NCAA tournament with
first-year coach Brad
Brownell.
— The Royal Bank of
Canada stepping in at
the 11th hour to keep
the PGA Tour's Heritage
in South Carolina.
— Star-crossed quarterback Stephen Garcia
finally running out of
chances after his sixth
transgression with the
Gamecocks.
— Spurrier's team
excelling to win five of
its final six games after
star runner Marcus
Lattimore was lost to a
knee injury.
There were no bigger
surprises, though, than
the championship seasons of South Carolina
baseball and Clemson
football.
The Gamecocks figured to be strong again
and a good bet to return
to Omaha, Neb. But
recapture the magic of
2010's unexpected run?
Not likely, particularly
with an injury to star
outfielder Jackie Bradley
Jr. that cost him most of
his junior season.
S outh
Carolina,
though, adopted the
mantra of "Win anyway,"
and at TD Ameritrade
Park, that exactly what
happened. There was a
walk-off, ninth inning win
over Texas A&M and a
13-inning thriller to beat
No. 1 ranked Virginia and
advance to the best of
three title series against
Southeastern Conference
rival Florida.
The Gamecocks continued their heart stopping play in game one
of the championship
playoff, getting out of
a bases-loaded, no out
situation in the bottom
of the ninth and cutting
down a Gators runner at
home in the 10th in a 2-1,
11 inning victory.
Star pitchers Michael
Roth and Matt Price took
out much of the drama
in game two, holding
Florida to six hits in a
5-2 win that clinched the
national championship.
"We're
extremely
blessed," South Carolina
coach Ray Tanner said.
"It's been great for us."
Clemson football had a
great run, too, after what
looked like the beginning
of the end for Tigers
coach Dabo Swinney.
The young, upbeat coach
had followed an ACC
Atlantic Division win
in 2009 with the team's
first losing season in 12
years and its first consecutive losses to rival
South Carolina in 40
years.
Swinney told any
Clemson leader, official,
trustee or booster who'd
listen to hang in there
because he was thisclose
to major success with the
Tigers. Turns out Dabo
was right.
Clemson, behind firstyear starting quarterback Tajh Boyd, first
year receiving star
Sammy Watkins and
first-year offensive coordinator Chad Morris, set
a score of school records
on the way to its first
ACC championship in 20
years.
Not that everything
was as smooth as it
appeared. Clemson was
the talk of college football
when it upended national champion Auburn,
Atlantic Division champion Florida State and
ACC champion Virginia
Tech in successive weeks
last fall. The Tigers eventually opened 8-0 and
were part of the national
championship talk until a
November swoon.
Clemson
dropped
three of four games
that month — including a third straight loss
to the Gamecocks —
and the questions that
had disappeared resurfaced, including whether
Swinney was up to the
job.
The positive vibes
returned Dec. 3 after
Clemson's 38-10 win
over No. 5 Virginia
Tech in the ACC championship game. It was
Clemson's first league
crown in 20 years and
clinched a trip to the
Orange Bowl for the first
time since the 1981 team
captured its benchmark
national championship
with a 22-15 victory over
Nebraska.
"There's been a lot of
walls built around this
program over the last
20 years, whether it be
people that don't believe,
doubters,
whatever,"
Swinney said. "Slowly
but surely, we've been
kind of knocking those
walls down."
Spurrier has toppled
plenty of walls the past
seven seasons to turn
South Carolina into a
surprising SEC contender. The Gamecocks head
ball coach may have done
his best job since leading
Duke to a share of the
1988 ACC title in guiding South Carolina to an
historic, 10-win season
this past fall.
Expectations
were
through the roof since

the year began and went
into the stratosphere last
Valentine's Day when
South Pointe defensive
end Jadeveon Clowney,
the country's top college
prospect, announced he'd
play for the Gamecocks.
Then, though, came
enough hurdles to hold a
steeplechase event.
Bruce Ellington came
out for football, touching off a yearlong debate
about whether Spurrier
"poached" the twosport star from a struggling basketball program that coach Darrin
Horn planned to rebuild
around Ellington.
Garcia, the fifth-year
senior, was suspended in
April for his out-of-control antics at a lifeskills
gathering and eventually
dismissed for good in
October.
Clowney was briefly
detained by Columbia
police who momentarily
handcuffed the teenager
because he matched the
description of an armed
robbery suspect.
The NCAA detailed
several violations against
Gamecocks football that
cost Spurrier speedy
freshman
wideout
Damiere Byrd for four
games.
And
star
runner
Marcus Lattimore, who
led the country in rushing the first month of
the season, missed the
second half of the season
with a knee injury.
Spurrier didn't always
handle it well. He ranted
against a local sports columnist last October and
got the city police chief
to handcuff him at practice to show Clowney's
detaining wasn't that big
a deal — but he kept his
players focused on the
field.
Spurrier also made
peace with his team's
winning
combination
of stifling defense and
ground-churning offense.
The Gamecocks finished
short of repeating as
SEC Eastern Division
champs, but Spurrier was
OK with that, too, giddy
about the program's second-ever 10-win season,
its undefeated SEC East
season and its latest victory over Clemson.
Spurrier has pledged
championship rings for
his players if they win
the Capital One Bowl
matchup with Nebraska
on Jan. 2 and finish with
the most victories in
school history.
"Our team has a lot to
play for," Spurrier said.
"It's an opportunity to
have the best record in
school history here going
for that 11th win. We
know it won't be easy,
but we're looking forward to the challenge."

From page 4
You can bet this will be standard procedure for every Occupy
group in America in a week’s
time. The corporate state and
its thugs in black uniforms and
kevlar are big, impressive, and
make lots of loud noise — just
like a T. Rex blundering into a
tar pit. The resistance is small,
agile and resilient — just like a
swarm of piranha.
In the immortal words of Bob
Marley: “The stone that the
builder refused shall be the head
cornerstone.”
Research Associate Kevin
Carson is a contemporary mutualist author and individualist
anarchist whose written work
includes Studies in Mutualist
Political Economy, Organization
Theory:
A
Libertarian
Perspective, and The Homebrew

A
Low-Overhead Manifesto, all
of which are freely available
online. Carson has also written
for such print publications as

Dear Santa,
My name is Callie Crocker
and I am 3 years old. I hope
you have had a good year at
the North Pole. Thank you
for my bouncy castle last
year, Although it took me to
March to jump in it without
being scared, I really did like
it. This year for Christmas I
would like a Princess Kitchen
to practice my cooking skills
in that Aunt Joni has taught
me. I would also like a convertible car to ride around
in with Reese. I really like
playing with my baby dolls,
but I do not have a highchair
to feed them in. If you could
talk this over with the elves
and see if they could put
something together for me
in that department, I would
really appreciate it. Lots of
surprises always make me
smile. Thanks, Santa. I’ll
leave you some cookies and
milk, and the reindeer some
food, too! Merry Christmas,
Santa!!!
Love,
Callie Crocker
P.S. - Please don’t forget
my little doggies, Prissy and
Vera. They LOVE Beggin’
Strips, and Prissy needs a
coat for the cold days. :)
Dear Santa Claus,
My name is Reese-Cup
Crocker and I am 3 years old.
I am really looking forward
to you coming to visit me
this year. I have a surprise
for you at my house, Santa…
A new baby brother!!! His
name is Eli, and he is only a
month old. Right now I think
he likes sleeping, eating and
baths the most!!! Mommy
and Daddy keep telling me
that one day he is going to
be as big as me and we can
play together all the time. I
wonder if he would like to
be the prince when Callie
and I play princesses??? I
bet he will, and if not, we
will talk him into it… This
year for Christmas I would
like a princess dollhouse and
princess dolls to play with in
it. I would also like a Barbie
Pet Vet. Santa, since Eli is
so very small I am sure he
would want me to share with
you some of the things he
would like for Christmas. In
time I am sure he will be big
enough to play with some
Incrediblocks and discover
all the little toys inside of
them. Also, I am sure he
would love to have the EleFun Ball Popper.
The Union Daily Times/Union, S.C., Friday, December 23, 2011 11
I can just see Mommy
chasing all those balls around
now. She loves playing with
us!! :) And Santa, I sort of
figure since he likes bath
time so much, he would love
some bath toys to play with
in the tub! Now Santa, I can’t
forget my doggy Mae Belle.
She’s been pretty good this
year, all except for that day
she went missing and scared
us all terribly. Please bring
her some Beggin’ Strips
and some new chew toys.
Mommy and I will be baking
you some of your favorite
cookies. Have a safe trip and
Merry Christmas!!!
Love,
Reese-Cup Crocker and Eli
Crocker

would like to have an iPad, a
BB gun, possums, a remote
control truck, a little four
wheeler, and a new pair of
boots.
Love,
Ella Genoble

cookies!
Dear Santa,
Merry Christmas. Do you
have any carrots? If you do
not I will give you some at
my house and I will give you
cookies and milk. I want an

trains! There is even a race
track that has cars and little

How is it going in the
North Pole? Are the reindeer

every boy and girl at least

my art set, it’s the main thing
that I want.
Love,

want everyone to be happy!

I am 10 years old. I All I
want for Christmas is some
Xbox 360 Kinect games. I
want “Call of Duty” (the
new one), Dance Central,
and Dance Central 2. I also
want some clothes, chocolate, money, and maybe some
movies too. I would love to
have an Ipad 2. If you aren’t
too busy you could stop by
the hospital and put some
presents under the tree there
or under the patient’s beds.
Merry Christmas!
Love,
Samantha Hughey
Dear Santa,
This is Jenna Bright. I
don’t want much this year
because I don’t want my toy
box getting to full because
then I would have to clean it
all up. So, I am only asking
for a few things this year. I
want four things of Moose
Tracks ice-cream, colored
cones to put my ice-cream
in, Hershey bars, Kisses,
M&M’s, and a new sonic
toothbrush (WITH EXTRA
BATTERIES!). I also want
anything that is zebra print.
I’m talking zebra print
clothes, hoody, cups, socks,
hats, and even zebra converses. It would be absolutely
fine if you got me purple,
orange, blue, green, yellow, red, or any other color
Converse’s. I really, really,
really, would like to ask God
if I can have what I got last
year….snow!! I would love a
white Christmas!
Love,
Jenna Bright
Dear Santa,
How have you been? I
have been waiting patiently
for Christmas. I want my

go with my Wii and my DSI,
and a new phone. That is all
I want for Christmas. Please
get my friends and family
what they want.
Love,
Malayza Lipscomb

Dear Santa,
For Christmas I want
an Ipad, a new shirt, soccer ball, an Under Armor
sweatshirt, and some more
Carolina stuff. I also want
to make all A’s in school, but
I guess I have to do that. I
want to say Happy Birthday
to Jesus. I hope everyone
has a spectacular, wonderful
Christmas.
Love,
Larissa Horne
Dear Santa,
This is my favorite time
of the year because of
Christmas. I have been a
good girl this year. I’m writing you this letter to tell you
that I want an Ipod Touch,
bike, and a HG phone. I also
wish for money for the homeless and poor. I would really
like for my Grandparents to
get better and not be sick.
That is all that I want for
Christmas.
Love,
Deoushia Thompson
Dear Santa,
How do you go from
house to house? Do you like
milk and cookies? Do you
get presents? Do you have
a Mrs. Claus? Do you cut
your hair?
Mrs. Gregory needs some
rest. I love her, but she needs
some rest. She teaches us
a lot. She helps all of us.
Sometimes it is fun. I love
Mrs. Gregory. Please give
her some rest for Christmas.
All I want for Christmas is
Saints Row 3, Call of Duty
Modern Warfare 3; I have
been good this year. I am
doing great in school. Mrs.
Gregory says to tell you that
I deserve lots of surprises
too.
I hope you have a good
time delivering presents.
Merry Christmas,
I love you Santa.
Love,
Harold
Dear Santa,
How are you doing up in
the North Pole? I’m guessing
you’re very busy. Can I ask
you a question? How do you
deliver all of the presents
in one night? I’m so excited
that Nichols came back. Are
you ready for Christmas?
Can you give all the children that don’t get presents
at all some this Christmas?
I would really like that,
because it would be special
for all of the little children.
The thing I want the most
is a new rabbit. I want a
baby rabbit because they are
cute and fluffy. I really love
bunnies. Santa would you
please get me a bunny?
Santa you are very nice
even though I’ve never met
you. I’ve heard about you.
Santa if you would do those
things for me, I would be the
happiest girl in the world,
Merry Christmas!
Love,
Bailey Sanders
Dear Santa,
Are you ready for
Christmas? Do you have a
lot of presents to give to a
lot of kids? Are your elves
working hard this year? How
many elves do you have?
What are their names? How
are you doing?
Can you take presents to
the orphans? I think orphans
are very sweet because
they grew up without their
parents. I could spend my
Christmas playing with
orphans and finding good
homes for them. I would
love to give up some of my
Christmas presents to give
to them because they are
poor! Sometimes I feel bad
about orphans when I see
one because they had to go
through life without their
parents.
I would like an ipad for
Christmas because I really
love to sing, dance, and listen to music. I used to have
one, but my sister spilt drink
on it, and it wouldn’t work
any more
Merry Christmas and
Happy New Year!
Love,
Jada Bagwell
Dear Santa,
I hope you are ready for
Christmas. I also hope your
elves help you. They better get busy! Last year on
Christmas I saw a deer on
the side of the road. My
mommy said it was Dixon.
Also, I looked in the sky
and there was a line across
the moon. Then when I got
home there were presents
everywhere.
I want you to give Mrs.
Gregory everything she
wants. I think she deserves
everything
she
wants
because she is nice and the
best teacher ever. I think her
kids deserve everything they
want too.
I am going to tell you two
things I want. I want a kitten
and a picture of Rudolph.
I will give you cookies and
milk.
My dog Lily that we got
for Christmas tries to bite.
We gave her to my aunt.
Sometimes she is sweet, but
sometimes she tries to bite.
I just want to say have
a good time on your trip.
I also want to say Merry
Christmas!
Your Friend,
Bailey Angel
Dear Santa,
How are you? How many
children do you have toys
for? Bet you have a lot of
work to do. I have a big
batch of cookies. I bet you
can’t wait to bring joy to the
world.
I know you’re really busy
this Christmas. Can you
bring my sister a Barbie van
because she wants one to
play with?
Can you bring my brother
a football so he can play
football with his dad? Can
you bring my little brother a
train set because he has been
begging about it?
What I want for Christmas
is a baby doll. I want a baby
doll because they are my
favorite thing to play with.
I
can’t
wait
until
Christmas! Can you? I bet
you can’t wait until you can
bring joy to the world.
Love,
April Case
Dear Santa,
Why do you eat cookies?
Why do you have elves?
Where is the North Pole?
My little cousin wants a
nerf gun, but not a real one.
I think you should get him
these because he is really
special to me.
What I want for Christmas
is a giant doll. I think you
should get me this doll
because I have been very
good this year. I hope you
have a good flight. Merry
Christmas!
Love,
Jayda Baldwin
Dear Santa,
How are you doing Santa?
I hope I am being a good
girl. I hope I get what I want
for Christmas. When is your
birthday? How old are you
Santa? How are the reindeer
doing? I hope you have a
great Christmas day when
you visit.
I hope you get everybody
a present because I think
everybody will be happy
when you give them a present. You can give a present
to the teachers. I hope everybody has a great Christmas!
I want a Wii for Christmas.
I want two Bratz dolls and
some make up from WalMart for Christmas.
Merry Christmas Santa!
I hope you have a fun
Christmas and a Merry
Christmas Santa. Be safe!
Love,
Asharia Wood
Dear Santa,
How do you feel? Just
to tell you I feel great and
bet you do too. I really am
ready for my favorite holiday. My favorite holiday is
Christmas! I hope you and
everyone else has a great
Christmas! I want the elves
to work really hard and wish
them good luck. I am going
to be good all year. I’m not
naughty, but I am nice. I
wish Mrs. Gregory’s third
grade class can have green
toilet water that the elves put
in. I love you Santa Claus.
Everyone loves Christmas! I
promise to be a good, good
girl. I pray to have a great,
awesome, wonderful, and
excellent Christmas.
Hey, I just want to ask
you a few questions. Do you
think I am naughty or nice?
How many people have been
naughty and how many people have been nice? Those
are a few things that are in
my mind to ask you. It’s terrible for the people who are
naughty. I am so, so sorry
for them.
I had a lot of fun writing this letter. I wish you
a Merry Christmas and a
Happy New Year. Have fun
this Christmas.
Love,
JeMeria Foster
Dear Santa,
I love winter it is my
favorite season. I love when
you get us stuff. I love winter
because it is a good season,
and we night get snow. I love
going to see you. It is cool!
You give us stuff and I love
telling you thank you.
I want you to give my
friend Bowen an electric
bike. He loves bikes. I think
he will love it! He probably
will ride it every day. Please
get him one for Christmas.
How are you doing this
year? I hope that I get a dirt
bike. I love dirt bikes they
are big ones and small ones.
I want a size 60 dirt bike. I
want a 243 rifle too. I love
going hunting with my dad,
Mickey.
I hope you have a good
and safe trip around the
world. I hope that you get
home safe to the North Pole.
Love,

Dear Santa,
How are you doing? I hope
I am being a good girl? How
old are you? Do you have any
brothers or sisters? I hope
you have a safe trip around
the world on Christmas
Eve. Do your reindeer like
Christmas cookies or carrots the best? I would like
to know if you have any
children?
I hope everybody gets
presents and has a great
Christmas this year. I want
people to have a great
Christmas break too. I just
wish our break could be longer! Could you make that
happen?
What I want for Christmas
is an American Girl Doll. I
heard they are helping people with cancer. I feel so sad
for them that is why I want
one to help people with cancer, and of course I want a
nice doll to play with.
I hope you don’t get a
tummy ache after eating so
many cookies on Christmas.
I hope you don’t get sick
from being out in the cold.
I hop you have a safe trip
around the world delivering gifts. Have a Merry
Christmas!
Love,

3rd Grade JEMS Mrs.
Gregory
Dear Santa,
How many elves do you
have? Do you give everybody
presents? What are the elves’
names? Can you really fly
a flying sled? I have always
wanted to know the answers
to these questions.
Santa, for Christmas
please give poor people
things they need like clothes
and shoes. They really need
your help.
Santa, for Christmas I
would like Singing Tori and
Password Journal. Please
give me what I really wish
for because I have never had
one.
Have a safe trip on
Christmas Eve. I hope you
have a wonderful Christmas.
Love,
Ingrid Cruz
Dear Santa,
How are you doing in the
North Pole? I hope you have
a safe trip with the reindeer. I wonder how the elves
are doing. I can’t wait until
Christmas. Santa, how do
you get around the world to
the kids in one night? I like
Christmas. It is my favorite
holiday. When you come to
my house, I have some cookies for you. How are you
and Mrs. Clause? I hope you
don’t get sick in the cold
when you deliver presents.
I hope you have these
things: a Playstation portable and some games for
the Playstation portable. I
would also like an IPOD.
I have been a good boy. I
think I deserve some of
these things.
I want my big sister to get
some WII games. I would
like for you to bring my second sister and IPOD. They
have been good girls too.
I think this is going to be
a good Christmas. I hope
you have a good Christmas
too Santa.
Love,
Derek Thompson
Dear Santa,
I hope you have a good
year this year. I hope that I
get lots of toys. You might
not get your deer ready for
Christmas. I can’t wait for
you to come.
I always wondered if your
deer are cold when you delivered toys at all the houses.
What kind of corn do you
feed your deer? How are you
doing? I want a Moongoose
bike. It is green and white.
I want new shoes for
Christmas. I just want everything for Christmas this
year. I’ll always believe in
you. I hope I get what I wish
for. I wish that you would
bring my mama some shoes
and clothes. She needs new
things because she has bee
sick and lost weight. She’s
the best mom. I hope you
have a good trip around the
world. Merry Christmas and
Happy New Year.
Love,
Josh Morris
Dear Santa,
I hope you are ready for
the other kids. I know that
your elves are doing hard
work on those toys. Do you
like cookies and milk or
would you like something
else on Christmas Eve?
I would like my Aunt Paula
to have a nice Mickey Mouse
ornament. She deserves it
because she does a lot for me
and my sister.
I want you to bring me a
Dragonball character named
Cell and one more thing all
seven Dragonballs. I don’t
have the M and would like
to.
I hope you have a safe
trip. I hope you don’t get
hurt. Merry Christmas!
Love,
Austin Williams

feeling? You are the best!
I want Jemeria and Jada to
get a lap top for Christmas.
I want Jordan, Joshua and
Jacob to get Star Wars toys

wonderful Christmas celebration together. We visit family
at Christmas. I wish for them
a Merry Christmas.
I am going to work hard on
my closet, keeping it clean. I
will put neat clothes that have
been washed in my closet.
Santa, if you would please
bring me a laptop.
I wish everyone would
get what they want for
Christmas. I hope everyone
has a very Merry Christmas.
I hope you have a safe ride on
Christmas Eve.
Love,
Elizabeth
Dear Santa,
How come you don’t let
children see you at night? I
know you’re busy right now,
but why do you eat cookies?
Have I been good or not?
I love you Santa and how
are the elves? Are they really
busy or not?
I want to give earrings to
my mother because she has
been wanting them all year
long and perfume for Granny
and men’s cologne for my
brother and underwear for
my daddy.
So I want a laptop cause
I can go on the internet and
play games like PBS.org and
funny videos.
I wish,
Bethany Hames
Dear Santa,
How are you doing? I heard
you had elves that go back
and tell you if we have been
good or not. By the way, I
believe in you.
I want my grandma to have
some earrings because she is
special to me. She does everything for me. She is the best
grandma ever and I love her.

Dear Santa,
How are you and your
elves doing? I’m doing well.
My name is Rasheed Parker.
How old are you? How many
elves do you have in all?
Santa, I would like for
you to get Derek a present
because he always plays me
and he never gets in trouble
at my house. He likes harass
my big sister Chanda Eison.
He likes to come with me
when I go somewhere. He
likes to talk on the phone
with me. He is a good friend.
Santa, for me I wish my
dad would come back home
from Greenville and stay
with us. I hope we can go
stay with him. I also wish my
mom could get her Navigator
painted white. I wish my
three grandmas were still
alive. I hope I get more presents than last year. I wish
Santa was at my house. I
hope Santa brings me more
presents.
Love,
Rasheed Parker
Dear Santa,
How old are you? How is
Comet? How many elves are
in your workshop? Have you
ever forgotten a kid? How is
Mrs. Clause?
I would like for you to
bring my brother a train
set because he loves trains.
Would you please bring him
a big one? That’s what he
needs.
I want an XBOX and the
game “Call of Duty”. I want
the XBOX to be camoflauge.
I would like some other
games too.
I hope you will hurry so
you can feed the reindeer
and you might be tired too.
Love,
Tyler
Dear Santa,
How are you? Do you feel
great? I hope you do because
you are going to have to
deliver presents soon. Are
your reindeer doing ok?
There is one more thingwhat kind of cookies do you
like? Please tell me so I will
know what kind to fix you.
Santa, could you get my
friend Jenna some Soccer
Bobbers? She would like
them because they are fun
to play with and they are
much more fun than a pillow
fight. Jenna is a good girl so
you can get her some Soccer
Boppers.
Santa, so you know what
I want for Christmas? I want
some Littlest Pet Shop toys.
I want them because I collect them. They are also fun
to play with. Can you get
some Littlest Pet Shop toys
for me?
I hope you have a safe trip
all over the world. I think
you are an amazing man!
Love,
Erin Miller
Dear Santa,
How are you doing in the
North Pole? Santa, how do
you deliver all of those presents in one night? Do you
ever get any presents from
your elves or your wife?
Santa, I would sure appreciate it if you could give
my BFF Akiriya a laptop.
I would like you to do that
because she is respectful,
caring and most important,
my best friend.
Santa, will you bring me
an XBOX Connect. I want the
one where I am the controller. I would like that because
my parents said that if I make
good grades, I could get it. I
did my chores, I listened to
my parents, did my work in
school and did my homework. I don’t talk back to my
parents or run my mouth, so
that is why I should have a
good Christmas.
I hope you were listening
to me because I really want
all of that. I wish better luck
for you next year.
Love,
Niasia Stewart
Dear Santa,
My name is Bowen Gault.
What it is like being Santa of
the whole world? Santa, what
is it like flying reindeer? It
must be fun. How are you
doing Santa? I’ve been wondering what’s been happening at the North Pole. You
better put your reindeer in
training soon for Christmas.
Santa, I would be happy if
you gave my nanny anything
that would help her knee.
She has to fall out of the bed
so she can get up. She hardly
can walk down the stairs or
move her knee easily. Nanny
has a torn cartilage. I can tell
it hurts her so bad. Santa,
please do that for her.
Santa, I want a video ca.
It has a camera on the front,
the back and the bottom. I
can see what it is doing just
like I was riding in it. I need
it because when my brother
isn’t home I can play with it
because I wouldn’t have anything to do. I would be very
happy if you gave that to me.
Santa, I wish that your
workshop will never break
down. One day I want to
have a reindeer. It would be
really helpful for me.
Love,
Bowen Gault
Dear Santa,
How are you doing in the
North Pole? Is it cold up
there? Do you like to read
a lot of books? I like to read
The Cat In The Hat. Santa,
do you drink hot cocoa a lot
when it is cold?
Santa, I know some people that are poor in Gaffney.
They don’t get anything for
Christmas. They do not have
any food or drinks. They
need some money to buy
a house. They live under a
bridge. Could you please
give them a happy Christmas
this year? Give them some
electricity so they can have
TV to watch when they go to
bed. Bring them some games
to play and a car to drive.
Santa, I want a new airplane that is remote control
and some toy people to put
on the airplane. I want a
gator that is real and a rabbit
that’s real and lots of books.
Please bring me a drawing
book for Christmas too.
Santa, I wish that I had a
new gun for Christmas and
some pens. I want to go
to Clemson University for
a vacation for Christmas.
I hope that I have a great
Christmas this year.
Santa, I hope you have
a fun Christmas from Mrs.
Claus and a fantastic present for her. Have a fun trip
at Christmas. You might be
tired when you get back from
your trip so take a long nap.
Love,
Grayson Heatherly
Dear Santa,
How are you doing? Are
you getting your sleigh
ready? Have you received a
lot of letters? Do you like
delivering all of the presents
in one night?
Santa, can you bring my
grandma a Merry Christmas?
She has been in the hospital
three times these past few
months. I love my grandma and she needs a happy
Christmas.
For Christmas I would
like lots of fish. I want fish
because I think they are
fascinating. I also want fish
because I think they look
catastrophic when they swim
all together.
I hope I am able to meet
you some day. Have a Merry
Christmas!
Love,
Isaiah Massey
Dear Santa,
How are you doing up
there in the North Pole with
all of your elves and Mrs.
Clause? Are you having a
hard time delivering presents to people all around the
world? Santa, do you like giving little boys and girls and
also grown up parents great
presents?
Santa, I hope you won’t
mind getting my little brother an awesome Christmas
present. My brother never
had a better present than last
year when he received a play
jeep. He said it was the best.
My mom says Christmas is
always great. Now do you
see why my brother never
had a great Christmas all
this time? Please Santa just
bring him something great
so he can have that experience again.
Santa, do you know what
I want for Christmas? I want
an IPOD for Christmas. I
want it because when my
mom is gone I could face
with her. I really want it
because it is so fun I could
talk all day with my sister.
Santa, I hope you will be
okay all winter. I hope one
Christmas you will get a very
special present from Mrs.
Clause.
Love,
Shekinah Sanders
Dear Santa,
How are the reindeer and
how are you too Santa?
Santa, for Christmas can
you get my grandma a flat
screen TV. They can watch
all of the funny shows and
have some fun. The show
they like to watch is Family
Feud. They need it so they
can see any show they want
to watch.
Santa, I want a phone for
Christmas so I can take pictures and listen to music. I
can call if an accident happens to me. I can also use
it so I can call a friend if I
forget what to do for homework when I get home from
school.
I hope you have a safe
Christmas Santa Clause. I
wish I could see the reindeer!
Love,
Akenya Shippy
Dear Santa,
How are the reindeer?
What do they like to eat?
How is the workshop?
Santa, can you bring my
sister a new doll? She has
one but my sister needs
another. My sister is only
four months old and she likes
to play with dolls.
Santa, can you bring me
four or five things? I want a
Play Station 3, an XBOX 360,
a bookshelf, a laptop and history books. Santa, that is all
I want for Christmas. I want
this stuff because I need it.
Santa, I hope you have a
great Christmas. I will leave
you chocolate chip cookies.
Love,
Christian
Dear Santa,
How are the reindeer and
you doing? How many deer
are there? Do they really fly?
Do you use something to see
if people are sleeping?
Can you get my grand-
mother a flat screen TV so
everyone can see it? They
need it because their old living room TV is little. They
need it to see what the
weather is going to be like.
Santa, can you get me a
Play Station 3. I heard you
can chat with other people. I
also heard that you can play
any Play Station game on it. I
believe they are the greatest
games.
I hope you have a wonderful trip. I wish I would see
you one day.
Love,
LaDanian
Dear Santa,
How are you doing in the
North Pole? Are you having a good time? How are
your reindeer doing? Is Mrs.
Clause coming with you on
your trip around the world?
I want my brothers to
get a flat screen TV. They
really want it. They want to
play their games on it. Will
you please bring them a flat
screen TV?
I want an XBOX 360. I am
so bored during the week.
Well, I guess I can play my
math game where I can learn
multiplication facts.
I hope you and Mrs. Clause
have a good time when you
get back from your trip. You
can go to sleep for a long
time after that trip around
the world!
Love,
Hunter
Dear Santa,
How are you? How cold
is it up there? Do you have
any girl reindeer? How do
you send every child gifts in
one night? How many elves
do you have? Do you and
Mrs. Clause have any presents that came from children
like me?
Can you give my mama a
very special present? I want
you to give her a car. She
needs a new car because
her silver van is really old.
Daddy has an old truck but
he still drives it. She needs it
so she can drive us to school
and back without breaking
down.
I want a pink laptop. I
want it to have designs on
the outside and a pink mouse
too. I just love pink stuff. I
think pink is pretty. I would
love to have a plain pink
laptop. I want it because our
computer is slow.
I think Christmas is the
best day of your life. Some
people don’t even care about
Christmas. I wish I could
ride with you one day. I hope
everyone in the North Pole
is okay.
Love,

rake his leaves, but he said
no. I help my brother catch
his chicken. I deserve one
because I don’t have one but
my brother does. I like to help
people.
Love,

Dear Santa,
Thank you for giving me
stuff on Christmas. You do
a really good job and you do
it really good. I like to hear
from my dad that they hear
the bells of your sleigh. When
I hear that I will know to go
home and go to bed before it
is too late. Now I have some
questions. Are you going to
let Rudolph fly? How is your
family? Have you been good?
Is it cold up north? Am I
on the nice list? Now for
the things I want. I want an
Xbox, IPod, dirt bike or fourwheeler. I hope you have a
very Merry Christmas and a
happy New Year. Have a good
flight and be careful.
Love,
Danny Farr
Dear Santa,
Santa, I want to have a
laptop for Christmas, because
I deserve it. I’ve been good
all year long in school and at
home. Am I on the nice list or
the naughty list? I have never
been bad in school. How is
Rudolph doing? Is he doing
fine? When are the elves coming out Santa? I want to have
a phone for Christmas. I really do deserve the phone. My
behavior is very good Santa.
I really want that phone, but
I don’t know if my mom will
buy it.
Love,
Rebekah Fox
Dear Santa,
Can you get me a new
phone, please? If you do,
how are you and Mrs. Claus
and Rudolph doing? I love
Christmas and it is not just
for presents. It is for God’s
birthday and you should celebrate God’s birthday. I have
a question for you. Will you
tell Rudolph to tell him he
is the best one ever and he
is so cute and he has that
red nose and he leads the
sleigh. You tell the reindeer
to go as fast as they can. I
love when it is Christmas,
because God’s birthday is on
the 25 of December and God
loves you Santa and you love
everybody too.
Love,
Madilyn Howse

nails, some real heals, a DS,
to stay at my Memaw’s house,
and a real internet. I would
like to come to the North
Pole to see Rudolph the RedNosed Reindeer and your
elves too. I want to see Mrs.

your elves still making toys or
cothes too? One more thing
that I want for Christmas is
a trampoline and I want presents from you.
Love,
Grace Kirby
Dear Santa,
I love Christmas so so, so,
so very much!!!!!!!! I want a
TV, Halo Combat Evolved,

I like Christmas because you

and really it’s about God too.
Santa, God loves everyone,
even you. You help him by
making us happy, and I love
you too. You are the best and
you should know that.
Love,
Ethan Lancaster
Dear Santa,
I’ve got a few questions. Is
your belly really like a bowl
full of jelly? Is your beard really as white as snow? Is your
nose as red as a cherry? Is
Rudolph still alive? Am I still
on the nice list? Please write
back. This year I want a DS,
a four-wheeler, a new bike,
one of those babydolls that
really pee-pees, a trampoline,
a skateboard, rollerskates, an
iPod touch, and the movies
Charlie and the Chocolate
Factory and Monsters, Inc. I
think I deserve those things
because I’ve been good this
year.
Love,
Mackenzie
Dear Santa,
I would like you to bring
me anything that you want.
I think you are very special.
How is your family doing?
How are your reindeer and
your elves? I have been very

bunch of things, but I only
want a few. I really want a

Am I on the nice list or the
naughty list? I hope you have
a very very merry Christmas
this year and tell everyone
that I said, “Hey.”
Love,

Dear Santa,
I have been very very nice
this year. If my parents or
teacher tells me to do something I do it. If they tell me to
take a letter to another teacher, I will say, “Yes, ma’am.”
I think I deserve a Nintendo
3DS for Christmas. Also I
want five hang-off the shoulder shirts.
Love,
Marquea Porter
Dear Santa,
I would love you to bring
me a four-wheeler to me for
Christmas, because it is my
favorite holiday. The other
things would be an iPod
touch, Grand Theft Auto,
City 1,2,3, Freddy Kruger
movie 1,2,3, a new Christmas
album of Justin Bieber and
a new Wii with the sports
bike and a Justin Bieber doll
with hair that’s all. Most
importantly of all the reason
I love Christmas is because
it is Jesus’ birthday and I
celebrate it with all of my
love and my whole family
together!!!

dollars in Monarch money.
Love,

Dear Santa,
This year I was a good
boy when my grandma and

Dear Santa,
How are you doing today?
Tell Rudolph I said, “Hi.”
Also, may you bring me an
ice cream maker, an orbez
machine, a CD player, a big
puzzle and a laptop with
internet. The reason I deserve
all this stuff is because I’ve
really been a very good girl
this year. I also have very
good grades. I even made
Teacher Honor Roll. How is
Mrs. Claus doing? Also, all
the other reindeer picked on
poor Rudolph and tell all the
elves to keep up the good
work. So they might even get
a present from you too also.
Is it true you have big red
cheeks and nose?
Love,
Niaria Thompson
P.S. Please bring me $100
in cash. Bye!
