From the mailbag:
Fearful of being banished from my role as family historian after such a short time in the position and due to a father's acerbic request, I must accurately restate several details before continuing on with this month's column. In June, I wrote about my great-great uncle, Adjutant General John D. Frost, the first man to be accepted and mustered into service of the United States, 1st S.C. Volunteer Infantry in May of 1898. Frost served as major, and later lieutenant colonel in the 1st SC Regiment in the Spanish-American War and was a World War I veteran ...
South Carolina baseball fans have plenty to crow about with the Gamecocks having won their second consecutive national championship, a feat that has been accomplished only a few times prior to this year. In the process, the team swept through the post-season playoffs without a loss, setting a record for consecutive playoff victories. The most exciting part was that USC was not a team that just lined up and mowed down the opposition without pausing; the Gamecocks got themselves into plenty of tight spots along the way and always managed to extricate themselves without major problems occurring. All championship teams ...

It was a good weekend for the Camden-based AAU SC Ballers (11 and under) and the TBallers (14 and under) basketball teams, which traveled to Dallas, Ga. for the Wolfpack Elite Summer Jam AAU Basketball Tournament.

Things started on an ominous note for the Lugoff-Elgin baseball team on Thursday and they would not get better that evening.
Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.
She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.
The road diet -- what a mistake. Even the mayor admits it could be a mistake. When the mayor was running for office he led me to believe that he was against the Broad Street diet. Two years later, he has flipped his opinion about the diet project. The mayor's vote, along with two of the previous council members, is what placed this mistake in motion. The urgency for the vote was to apply for a grant. A grant is federal tax dollars and not free money as some believe. This type of attitude is one of the reasons our ...
