As many Camdenites and others did, I had a great summer on The River, or was it The Lake? The River is what many of us aging boomers call Lake Wateree. Fifty years ago, that moniker was associated with everything about "Wateree" Lake. I pondered that thought as I reflected and enjoyed a wonderful afternoon breeze from the shores of Camp Lystra. Today, some changes are quite apparent, and some changes are barely noticeable. In reality, some features that appear to be changed are unchanged. Hidden from the quick eye are many of its unchanged features.
Dear Annie: My relationship with my 22-year-old daughter, "Lana," has become impossible. She is a total slob. She lived here over the summer and did exactly one load of laundry. It was not uncommon to come home and find dishes in the sink because she "didn't have time" to empty the dishwasher. Her clothes and shoes were everywhere. My husband paid rent on her college apartment so she could keep it while she worked here for the summer, and she decided to use her own money to take a weeklong vacation. She didn't pay her car insurance (my ...

We suppose writing editorials about voting can be a recitation of clichés – "the most basic right of Americans," "the cornerstone of democracy," those kinds of things. But however hackneyed they might sound, they're true. Never was the power of the vote more evident than two years ago when Barack Obama energized the American electorate as it had not been energized in years. Obama rushed to a landslide win by exciting people about the prospects of changing America in a positive way. Now, if we are to believe polls showing a sizeable Republican win next Tuesday, Americans are saying ...

About a year ago, I wrote an article titled, "I didn't marry my soul mate." I was very honest about a period of time in my marriage when both of us wondered if we had chosen incorrectly and even if we had settled. During those times I wondered what my life would have been like had I married "the other guy."

The earth is the third rock from the sun. Ireland and Scotland combined are 84 percent of that chunk. Visiting these grand lands confirms that notion. There are so many rocks in these Gaelic territories that everything is made from them. Walls, roads, buildings, more walls, homes, roofs, castles -- did I mention walls? -- abbeys and monasteries all are rock solid.

Banging your head against the wall and murmuring bad words under your breath is counterproductive. Kids are messy. They just are. They have better things to do than pick up their messes. It's all right there in their owner's manual -- in between learn to walk and never play with matches -- make messes.
