Long may you run, Bulldogs

Take 10 unassuming athletes, add an untiring and resolute coach, and you have the ingredients of one spirited and determined boys cross country team at Camden High School. For the first time in the school's history, the Region 6-AAA trophy will take up residence in her trophy case. Head Coach Jerry Stokes shares in the team's victory with his accolade of conference coach of the year. Coach Stokes trains, you could say, with old school ideology. He encourages his runners at a distance, giving them the space needed to develop their own style, though nearby to provide the ...

Love for learning should be lifelong passion

The most important thing a high school or college student can do, if they haven't already, is find a focus, in terms of their career. Preferably, this focus is a passion of theirs.

Yes, but ... dude

NEW YORK -- It's always risky to appear onstage with a comedian. Not only are funny guys funny but they're aggressive.

A mysterious season

I don't know if it was unconscious decision on my part due to the Halloween season, but I have found myself enmeshed in the classic mysteries of Sherlock Holmes.

High-tech lynching, redux

NEW YORK -- In 1991, the world divided itself in two camps: those who believed Anita Hill and those who didn't. I fell somewhere in the middle: She may have told the truth, but so what?

Harsh humor

If you're unfamiliar with comedian Daniel Tosh's work, you're missing out on a plethora of racist, prejudice and offensive jokes. You're also missing out on heaps of laughter.

Punished for being honest

Juan Williams' unfortunate firing by NPR raises a question: Can we admit to having our own prejudices while arguing against other people's prejudices?

Bump in the night

So the other day I'm making coffee when I hear something weird. It's this other-worldly voice, not really moaning, but not really articulating anything, either. As I had enjoyed the better part of a large bottle of Malbec the night before, I dimly wondered if I was having some sort of mild DTs.

Many life milestones are out of millennials’ reach

WASHINGTON -- We want to move out. We want to own our home. We want to marry. We want to work.

Musings from a Cardinals, Cowboys, Chiefs, Rams, Panthers, Dolphins and Gamecocks fan

It sure has felt good to have some cooler days lately. After a long, hot summer, it's nice to know the more pleasant breeze of a pre-autumn day. I have heard many people say similar things in the past week or two, and then there's usually also a follow-up comment about how it won't be long until we're complaining about how cold it is or there's snow and ice on the roads. All true.

Give me air!!

Hot, hot, hot! We're on the second day of 99 degrees-plus-the-heat-index weather. I'm on my wide front porch on the shady side of the house with a woven Palmetto frond fan in my hand. Back and forth, waving steadily. It helps a little -- fanning my sweat glistened cheeks and neck. The ladies a century ago would have said they were "glowing." They used these fans too -- in fact my older friend bought dozens of them for her daughter's summer wedding at Salem Black River Presbyterian years ago -- before they put in air conditioning. She gave me this ...

Driving therapy

Music has the power to influence. It has the power to evoke deep thoughts, which ultimately lead to a flow of emotions and feelings. Driving paired with music seems to increase that flow of emotions. Maybe it is the sometimes calm rhythmic movement that the steady turn of the wheels creates that appeal to the mind and body. I make a 45 to 50 minute drive to and from work five days a week, so I get plenty of time to daydream, think and devise plans of action for any situation that is heavy on my mind. No one is ...

More on S.C. snakes

Though the calendar has now been flipped to the month of September and autumn is right around the corner, here in South Carolina it is still very much summer according to the thermometer. Days are getting shorter, but lower temperatures don't usually make it to South Carolina to signal the end of summer until well into October. Birds have begun their annual migrations south, but the heat and humidity that still lingers continues to keep snakes very active. Being exothermic, or cold-blooded as I was taught in elementary school, snakes take environmental warmth and warm themselves to activate processes ...

Mark Sanford’s ongoing saga with himself

WASHINGTON -- As a South Carolinian, it befalls me to examine the peculiarities afflicting our former governor and now-congressman Mark Sanford, who, contrary to decorum and taste, continues to demand attention.
