Move forward

Tip O'Neill, the Massachusetts pol who was speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives for many years, once said that all politics is local. That maxim was never more evident than in last Tuesday's election for mayor in which political newcomer Tony Scully unseated incumbent Jeffrey Graham. It was concrete proof that if voters believe their elected officials aren't listening to them, they'll turn them out of office. Scully was a reluctant candidate but turned out to be an effective one, and voters responded to that.

A different Christmas

I guess every child hears how lucky he is from his parents. I am not sure the story is true. My mother, a widow with little education, told me how meager her Christmases had been in a family of 12 children. According to her, she was lucky to get an apple or an orange, a finger-sized doll and a stick of candy. My brother and I, on the other hand, usually got much more. I remember quite clearly that Santa never got the idea right that I despised dolls, so I received one every year. Contrary to the dolls of ...

False tweets, future jailbirds?

I have never been quite as wrapped up with Twitter as a lot of my colleagues are, although the 140-characters-or-less medium appears to be ideally suited to today's shortened attention spans.

Gray Vincent

Gray Vincent died suddenly on October 21st at her home in Columbia, SC. Gray knew life intimately and she faced it squarely-both the darkness and the light. For most of us mortals, we could not have lived as intensely and as honestly as she. She brought all of her past to every present moment. She was unprotected from pain-both hers and the pain of those she deeply loved. She lived true to herself-without pretense or deceit. Her family was her constant concern-her sister Harriet, her brothers Thad and Charlie, and her two generations of nephews and ...

Editorial: Improving the city

There have been many great additions to the Camden landscape in recent years -- to name a few, the statues of Joseph Kershaw and King Haiglar at the Town Green; the Bernard Baruch and Larry Doby statuary at the Camden Archives; and the new pocket park where the former Maxway building stood. All these have added to the town's appearance and ambience.

Arrants: ‘So, how’s Texas?’

"So, how do you like living in Texas?" Overwhelmingly, that is the question I've been asked repeatedly by both people I interact with here and back in South Carolina. Most pose the question in an uncomplicated way, often wanting to know what I like about Texas and what I might miss from South Carolina. Some follow up with another, more in-depth question about what I think is similar and/or different about the two states. Well, let's start with at the top and work from there.
