A little bit of war

WASHINGTON -- Waging a little bit of war is like being a little bit pregnant.

Why we must go after Assad

I'm going to head some folks off at the pass right from the start with this column because I know they'll be fuming just from reading my headline.

American credibility

WASHINGTON -- Undoubtedly you've heard that American credibility is on the line, thanks to President Obama's vacillation on what to do about Syria.

Employees, volunteers play important role at KH

One of the things about being a healthcare CEO is that you become the very visible face of the organization. In many cases, the public believes you are closely involved with everything that happens within the walls of the organization. Unfortunately, that does a great disservice to the hundreds of employees and volunteers and the difference they make in the lives of people every day. CEOs provide vision, leadership and support of the organization's mission, but it's everyday employees who execute that mission.

A Localife/Sports criss-cross returns

Back in the day, when I was newspapering full-time at the C-I and Sheila McKinney was Localife editor, she was a whiz at putting wedding stories together.

When talk isn’t cheap

At the outset, let me stipulate that 99.999 percent -- or more -- of all the words uttered by politicians are thoroughly forgettable, and that they usually are forgotten nearly as soon as they are spoken.

Is the man with the chainsaw real?

Perhaps I should give Miley Cyrus all the credit for my column this month. Besides, she is the proverbial straw I've been waiting for. Suffice it to say I believe Miss Cyrus' repugnant performance on the recent VMA's acted as a wake-up call of sorts for many parents including myself. If you missed the show, don't spend the time viewing it on YouTube or some other social media. It will only add to the number of hits she's received and help prove her notion she was "making history." It's truly worthy of nothing. More, I ...

High school newspaper ink drying up

I was thumbing through my old "Class of 1965" high school yearbook one day when I was stopped dead cold by an autograph left by one of my teachers: "Dear Clarence: All I ask is that you mention my name when you win your first Pulitzer Prize. Don't forget. Mary Kindell."

District staff should get out the vote

I really applaud the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees for taking the initiative to get its school faculty and staff registered to vote and informed about the issues affecting public K-12 education.

The pain of writing … and dating

There are so many adages about writing -- write what you know, write from the heart, show them don't tell them and the list goes on, ad nauseum. I took a fair share of writing classes as an undergrad and I loved those classes. That's the most fun I've ever had as a student in a learning scene, I have no doubt.

Giving back

Business news: in the second quarter, South Carolina outpaced the nation in manufacturing growth -- 2.7 percent, above the national average of 2.5 percent and the Southeast average of 2.1 percent, according to the S.C. Department of Commerce. Columbia is now the hottest high-tech city in the South, recently ranked No. 2 in the U.S in high-tech employment growth.

Mirror, mirror

WASHINGTON -- The president is up early, already showered and preparing to shave. Wiping steam from the mirror, he grimaces slightly at his image.

Miley’s mandate: return to prudery

MOUNTAINTOP, N.C. -- If opinions differ on Miley Cyrus' raunchy performance during MTV's recent Video Music Awards, on one thing we all can agree: Miley loves her tongue.

A Little known Civil War ‘Affair’ at Flat Rock

As a part of the centennial of the Civil War, in 1959 the South Carolina Archives Department published Military and Naval Operations in South Carolina, 1860-65. In the portion of the book treating Sherman's march through South Carolina, the department named a military action with little or no combat, an "Affair." That name describes this event at Flat Rock.

My sons’ Star Trek education

For many pre-teen boys (and those of us who are ... um ... much older) science fiction TV shows and movies are exciting fare that are almost required watching. How can a young man (or older one) get through life without knowing who Capt. James Tiberius Kirk, Han Solo, Marty McFly or The Doctor are?
