Pet talk - June 22, 2012

Evacuating when a hurricane hits the coast is a stressful and scary experience, especially when evacuating with horses. While tornadoes give little warning for evacuation, hurricanes can give enough lead time to actually move people and horses out of the storm's expected path. But even with that time, preparing for equine evacuations can be crucial to the survival of horses.

The essentiality of journalism

In 2005 when their city drowned, the staff of the New Orleans Times-Picayune stayed in it longer than common sense and simple prudence would dictate. People who had lost homes, loved ones, and their city itself concentrated on gathering the news and putting it out. They finally left huddled in newspaper delivery trucks, water up to the headlights, decamping to Baton Rouge, 75 miles away, where they went right back to reporting the news.

Note and passed - June 25, 2012

• Cycling legend Lance Armstrong has again been accused of cheating by using illegal performance-enhancing drugs, with accusations made by the U.S. Anti-Doping Association. Armstrong has been accused of the same offense multiple times in the past though nobody has ever offered concrete evidence that's been proven. If Armstrong is guilty, then he should be punished, but any new charges should be quickly proven or given up.

Retirement choice

When I retired, one of my friends asked me what I was going to do with my time. I told her I was already volunteering and working out. She looked incredulous and remarked, "Well, I don't know what I will do, but certainly will not do those two." She had no idea how entertaining, healthful, and fulfilling these activities are. I have also met many charming, amazing, and different people there. I had the same choice that most have -- vegetate or activate. I chose to activate when family matters allowed. My life is much fuller because of my involvement.

Politician's stories

President Obama and Mitt Romney are criss-crossing the country on their campaigns, making all sorts of claims about what they've done and will do. What they're doing is playing fast and loose with the truth, which isn't unusual for politicians. In trying to enhance their records and cast doubt on each other, they're quoting statistics out of context, making misleading statements about their respective records and generally acting like people who aren't exactly under the influence of truth serum.

Editorial: Medical marijuana

Though the legalization of medical marijuana appears to be a dead issue in this session of the General Assembly, we hope lawmakers won't forget about it and that there will be an attempt to revive the issue next year. It is, of course, an emotional matter for many people, and there are those who believe legalizing marijuana for medical purposes will be the first wave of massive use by people who are trying to skirt the law. Both the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division and S.C. Medical Association oppose the bill, with a former president of the ...

Noble: S.C. profiles in courage
