Column: Born to fly, bound to run

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- Republican Ashley Nickloes is the only woman in a seven-way primary race to fill a congressional seat held by one family for five decades. She's also the only military pilot in the race, running against a litany of odds, including the strong possibility that she'll lose to a popular career politician who hunts Bigfoot and made it easier for Tennesseans to eat their roadkill.

Column: Everybody’s dog

In many cases, who rescued who is a pretty good question, but in the case of one recent rescue dog, the better question is how many people did it take to get a dog to safety. Calls, emails, and texts were all pouring into my phone. All about a dog that was roaming around at one of Kershaw County's recycling and trash convenience centers or as some people refer to it, "The Dump." Lots of people were seeing her, a few were feeding her, some could pet her, and others she was following around as they unloaded their trash ...

Column: A folk artist preserves the past

Every community needs a Harold Branham. In a time when things old and quaint fall to modern ways, it's good to have someone with heart, talent, and memories preserve the past. That would be my friend, Harold Branham, a true folk artist. I first heard of Harold from Michele Jackson, the editor of the Blythewood Leader, back in 2008.

Letter: Who is responsible?

Editorial: John Meadors

Readers will notice a story by senior writer Martin L. Cahn about former 5th Circuit Deputy Solicitor John Meadors finishing up a write-in campaign to run for that top slot. In fact, he has obtained more than enough signatures to run, although he has several more hoops through which he must jump before his name can actually be placed on the ballot.

Column: The legacies

When Daddy and Mama died, there was no great wealth left behind -- though what they were able to leave was truly remarkable for two refugees from mountain poverty: a few pieces of property, including a small farm, some money in the bank, and not one penny of debt. Neither had ever possessed a credit card.

Column: Lyman Draper hits close to home

Last month's column discussed Lyman Draper and his manuscript collection at the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. And as I wrote last month, "thank heavens Draper never came to Camden." Draper crisscrossed the South from the 1838 until the 1880s "borrowing" original manuscripts and documents from the descendants of Revolutionary War veterans and early settlers, telling their descendants he was going to write their ancestor's history. Unfortunately, he never got to the writing phase -- he just kept talking about it and convinced many hundreds of families to allow him to take their documents as research for his books ...
