Let voters decide

I've always been proud to say I'm a Camdenite, even though I haven't lived there in more than four decades. My dad, Everett "Skip" Ring, was among the first wave of out-of-staters DuPont transferred in during the early 1950s. We moved to Camden the week of my 5th birthday and resided there until the summer after I graduated Camden High. Although I have lived numerous other places, in my heart Camden is my hometown. Over the last 12 years, business trips have afforded me the opportunity to periodically visit Camden as I've passed through. I have ...

Entrepreneurs as economic heroes

Last month's column focused on South Carolina's abysmal, fourth-highest in the nation unemployment rate. I have come across some information in the last couple of weeks that has given me a lot to think about as I look for ways the state can encourage job creation in South Carolina.

Wanted: a GOP dating service

My third failed attempt at breastfeeding, and it's OK

I've come to know the sound all too well -- the unmistakable suction of the breast pump. In fact, my breast pump and I have spent so much time together there are times I think it's talking to me, and sometimes not saying very nice things! Perhaps some are familiar with that distinctive noise as well if they've been as unlucky as me with what I was told would be natural and wonderful.

5 must-teaches to prepare your kids for adulthood

We teach our children to walk, talk, chew 32 times, brush their teeth, pick up their clothes and be kind to others. We teach them to turn off the lights when they leave a room and not to play with matches. We teach them to drive cars and send out thank-you notes. The list is endless.

As students flood the campuses of the country's elite colleges this fall, those schools remain, mostly, enclaves of privilege.

Bridging the gap: Can empathy be taught?

Every semester since 2006, Kevin Blair has taught an introductory course on poverty at Niagara University.
