Read a textbook in 2013?

A couple of months ago, I "rejoined" LinkedIn, the social network for business professionals. I got back in to it because the network was beginning to expand from simply helping people network for that next big job to helping them with their current jobs.

The $1 million man

Meyer, who's designed airplanes for most of his adult life, figured the new jet could get him -- or anyone else, for that matter, where they were going just a little faster. It would just take a bit of engineering … and a few million dollars.

Gang shooting was ‘shock to system’

I shivered slightly when I realized that this Friday night, Dec. 7, is the exact five year anniversary of the night 17-year-old Camden High School student Michael Smith died of a single gunshot blast to the chest, the first and so far only Kershaw County victim of a gang-related shooting.

Some drama, a "sermon" and a tearful good-bye highlighted Mayor Jeffrey Graham and Councilman Pat Partin's last Camden City Council meeting Tuesday night.

C-I profile: Camden’s new mayor

The nation's capital is the place those with political aspirations usually aim for as an ultimate goal. There's a reason the classic James Stewart movie is called "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington." But what if you were born in Washington, D.C., and your main aspiration was to see your plays produced on stage?

‘Person of Interest’ is food for thought

Today's column did not spring from original thought. I'm not the first person to write about CBS' Person of Interest, now in the middle of its second season on Thursday nights.
