Smiling faces. Beautiful places.

A friend of mine came through town the other week to stay with me for a night as a sort of rest stop on his current road trip. Naturally, he wanted to see all the many sites and attractions that the area has to offer. As we drove through downtown Camden and I pointed out all the historical houses and then crossed over the bridge separating Camden from Lugoff, he said to me "everyone waves here." I was a little confused by this statement. So I asked him what exactly he meant by that. I mean, I understood the words ...

Input from home

I know I should probably write about the current multiple scandals in Washington. And with the investigations into the Benghazi terrorist attacks, the revelation of the Department of Justice pulling the Associated Press' phone records, and the outrageous political vendetta being revealed at the IRS, there would certainly be no shortage of material.

I-5 bridge collapse a warning for S.C.

I didn't get a lot of sleep Thursday night and not because I wasn't feeling well or had a lot of noise to keep me awake. In fact, I actually fell asleep in an office-type chair in front of my computer trying to watch online, live video from a Seattle, Wash., TV station covering the partial collapse of an I-5 bridge over the Skagit River.

In countries around the world, the oak tree is the symbol of strength, fortitude and endurance. In the U.S., the oak was designated in 2004 as our national tree. Despite this status as a stalwart of the forest and city alike, oaks in our native and urban ecosystems face tremendous challenges from diseases, insect pests and human-caused disorders.

A trifecta with little payout

WASHINGTON -- Folks, deep breath time. This is not the end of the Obama presidency. It's a bad stretch with an unfortunate confluence of unfortunate events. None of which will make the first paragraph -- not even the first page -- of the account of the Obama administration in the history books.

A short vocabulary lesson

This past weekend, I had the rare, but always enjoyable, visit from my grandparents. I don't know about you, but anytime I have the opportunity to spend time with them I learn something new; sometimes about myself, sometimes about life, but always it's something.
