Celebrating Parents’ Day

Yesterday, Sunday, July 28 was Parents' Day! Designated by Congress in 1994, the fourth Sunday of July is the day each year that we celebrate parents in the United States. Parents are very important to our future because they are the ones raising our next generation of leaders. Here in South Carolina and across the globe, parents are working hard to be sure their children have a healthy start in life and access to all the early learning experiences their children need to thrive in school and in life.

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.
