bin Laden takedown victory for all Americans

For those of you saying that the bin Laden takedown was not an "Obama" win, you're right. It was an American win. However, former President Bush, former Vice President Cheney, senators Graham and DeMint and even Rush Limbaugh have all congratulated Obama. He should be credited for maintaining the policies that continued the search and giving the order that resulted in Sunday night's win for the American people.

A very good year!

A few weeks back, I heard two high school students talking about the upcoming prom and other end-of-the-year activities. It doesn't seem possible, but the year has flown by. In spite of all the challenges our community, state, and nation continue to face because of the economy, it's been a very good year in the Kershaw County School District! I thought I'd spend a little time this month touching on a few of the countless highlights of this year.

Trump's bullying pulpit

Donald Trump stepped out of the helicopter that had his name painted on the side, walked across the tarmac and announced to reporters that he was proud of himself. This would not be news on any day. But on this day, I would not have been surprised to see him start hugging and kissing himself.

Without wind, how can a sailboat reach shore?

In my April column, I touched on what it means to some to overcome incredible adversity and how these people make a commitment to survive in tough times; choosing to ride out the storm rather than sink. So recently, being drawn to titles like "Deep Survival," "Long Distance," "Will to Live" and "The Long Walk," I felt it appropriate to continue exploring this thought-provoking subject of survival; why some can endure hardships at an unconceivable intensity only to emerge as the victor standing strong and tall. They are stories of courage, endurance, and the amazing will to persevere. Further, they ...

Once we were sane

NEW YORK -- If you really, really dislike Barack Obama, his long-form birth certificate, finally proffered in exasperation, is quite simply a counterfeit.

Pandering to the Obamaphobes

When I was a kid way back in the previous century, my favorite attraction at the local county fair was a midway amusement that everyone called "dunk the dimwit" -- or words to that effect.

A voice from above

"That man could crawl through a barrel of fish hooks and not get a scratch on him.'' Troy Stevenson, who retained the wisdom of his mountain upbringing, once used that expression concerning a man we were discussing. The late Highway Patrolman Randy Sanders once described an individual as: "One who could be used to open a bottle of wine."

Why it matters when politicians 'play politics'

In 2006, Barack Obama, then a member of the U.S. Senate, voted against raising the "debt ceiling" -- the maximum amount of outstanding federal debt the US government can incur by law.

Surprise, surprise! Faced with the prospect of Medicare cuts, even Tea Party folks find griping about "big government" to be a lot more fun than actually shrinking it.

Owens: Year in review

To say that 2014 has had its ups and downs would be an understatement. Honestly, I don't know what words or phrases I would use to describe how my 2014 played out. It wasn't the worst year ever, but it definitely wasn't the greatest.

The loss of parents and their wisdom

There are few who cannot say truthfully that they miss their parents after death has laid claim to those loved ones. The parents who taught us, scolded us and, at times, annoyed us are never forgotten, never put away on a shelf to be remembered no more.

Gunn: Partnership drives investment in health

You may have read about the letter of intent to be agreed upon between KershawHealth and MUSC Health/Capella Healthcare. This agreement is about more than simply the leasing of real estate and ownership of property. Ultimately, it is about an investment of organizational and financial resources in this community and its healthcare needs. MUSC Health/Capella Healthcare will invest heavily in programs, facilities, and services at KershawHealth that will increase our patient volume and, in turn, increase revenue. From an organizational standpoint, it will provide access to best practices and strategies to improve the quality of care provided, enhance ...

Phillips: Watch out for the Grinch

The holiday season is traditionally a time for joy and celebration. It's a time when we may be able to see family members and friends who we seldom get to see because of distance or available time. For many of us, it's the time we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. For others, there are options in the form of Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or whatever holiday celebration you may choose.

Joseph: ‘The Christmas Truce’

Earlier this week, as I sat down at my desk stacked high with a rather large "catch-up pile," flipped on my computer and opened up my browser, I was greeted by a plethora of Christmas cheer. You know, the bright pop-up holiday ad-type cheer and the Top 10 gift list-type cheer among others. In my view as well were numerous articles on a variety of topics including "How to Raise the Bar for Your Holiday Decorations," "Picking That Perfect Tree," "Best Free Apps for Christmas Shopping," "Say Cheese: Time for the Dreaded Family Portrait" and the final two but no ...
