Election 2017 a better reflection

There were no votes to be cast Tuesday here in Kershaw County, S.C. Nonetheless, looking at the outcome of Election 2017 across the country affords everyone -- including those of us here at home -- a chance to gauge the direction America is taking.

Charlie, the patriot

It was on the eve of our national election that I ran upstairs to file a couple of things in my office. As I started to leave, a large storage box caught my eye. I had not noticed it before. I opened it and discovered that Charlie Tinker was wanting to talk again.

Six seconds to live

What we didn't know at the time, and only learned a couple of days later after I wrote a summary and submitted both Yale and Haerter for posthumous Navy Crosses, was that one of our security cameras, damaged initially in the blast, recorded some of the suicide attack. It happened exactly as the Iraqis had described it. It took exactly six seconds from when the truck entered the alley until it detonated.

Our fears

In the last month or so, local and national weathermen hourly and daily chronicled over television and in print the paths of hurricanes across portions of the United States, the Caribbean basin and the Gulf of Mexico. One of these hurricanes became very personal for me. You see. It was given my first name, Harvey!
