‘Under the Dome’s’ Big Jim

I've always been a physically small person. As I'm sure many of you can imagine, that led to being bullied quite a bit as a younger person. In fact, I'd dare say that it wasn't until my sophomore year of college that most of the folks around me matured enough not to engage in such behavior.

My sons’ Star Trek education

For many pre-teen boys (and those of us who are ... um ... much older) science fiction TV shows and movies are exciting fare that are almost required watching. How can a young man (or older one) get through life without knowing who Capt. James Tiberius Kirk, Han Solo, Marty McFly or The Doctor are?

‘I Have a Dream’ lives 50 years on

Depending on what story you want to believe, I was either named for the bird Martin (likely a purple one) or for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. There's also the more Jewish name origin, in that I may have been named for a female relative whose name was Matilda (or something close to that).

Patch never matched local news

Last week, I wrote about Amazon.com founder Jeff Bezos' purchase of The Washington Post and how the so-called "demise" of print news is something most community newspapers like the Chronicle-Independent have been fortunate to avoid. That's because the C-I and papers like it have been "hyperlocal" before anyone coined the term. We pretty strictly limit our coverage to news that happens inside the borders of Kershaw County. When we tackle something larger, we always "bring it home" by linking it to someone or something in the county.
