Friendships

My friendships have always been important to me, but as I get older and can see how easily relationships can fade, they've become even more of a priority.

I’m George the VII, I am

Once the United Kingdom had a new royal heir, Brits were all atwitter to see what Prince William and Princess Kate were going to name the little fellow -- little being a relative term, as he weighed about 8 and 1/2 pounds.

Moment of Nature - July 26, 2013

I do not consider myself an alarmist nor do I normally get overly excited about things, but there is definitely cause for concern regarding a recent find in town. In late May, I performed a residential tree check in the Kendall Lake area. As a general rule, I do my best not only to look at the tree of concern but also to walk the property to make sure other trees are OK as well. In doing so at this particular property, one tree caught my eye. Then I saw another and another and another. My first thought was, "Uh-oh ...

Doubling down on double standards

WASHINGTON -- Redemption is in the air, we keep hearing. Americans don't care about a person's sex life because, well, they have one, too, and, hey, we all have weeds in our garden.

Dream job no more

There are few things more startling than seeing the face of an infamous bomber on the cover of your favorite publication (ex-favorite publication, I should add). When I pick up an issue of Rolling Stone magazine, I expect to see a well-known artist or up and coming one, not the face of a terrorist. But, not the latest issue. Instead, Rolling Stone chose to decorate its latest cover with the face of accused Boston bomber, Dzhokhar Tsarnaev.

SC’s Trayvon Martin and the Civil War

As this was written, no one knew how the jury would decide the Trayvon Martin case. And no matter what the jury decided, the verdict will surely arouse strong emotions and debates about race, violence and American society.

SC Supreme Court makes right call

‘It’s a WHAT?’

There are rewards for diligence. We have been rearranging the collections storage stacks at the Camden Archives and Museum for the past month. Three of us going through each box, each folder, each book and object making sure that it is listed in the collections database correctly. My task is to check the oversized materials -- the things that need to go in a map case and the large books stashed around the stacks. It's not scintillating work but it has to be done -- so we plod through one more stack of books and the next shelf of storage boxes ...

The Mt. Rushmore connection

My only personal reference to Mount Rushmore was a background to Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest and an American icon. But after my three-year involvement with "tourism," both from Historic Camden's perspective, as well as city/county "tourism initiatives," when I toured Mount Rushmore last week the answer to "Why Mount Rushmore?" was startling. I naively assumed this National Monument was created as a tribute to presidents and homage to our nation and that Mount Rushmore was the ideal location. But that's not the core reason. Surprisingly, the answer was simply, "tourism."
