Column: Different times, different measures

I hate to admit to spending time on the internet, but what can I say -- I surf, happily and mindlessly, just like everyone else.

Column: An afternoon for redfish

Many years it's been since I fished, 40 at least. The drought ended August 22. Out onto Port Royal I went with Beaufort fishing guide, Capt. Tuck Scott, and Tony Royal of Baystreet Outfitters. Out we went in Scott's Hells Bay Stealth, a shallow water skiff. We sought redfish, which go by various names … spot tail, red drum, channel bass, and "red."

Column: House of horrors

The first thing that happened when I moved into my present house is the pipe to the washing machine burst and water flooded one of the downstairs rooms where my office is located.

Column: A house for more than court

During the 1930s, I remember hearing my father, who was born in 1892, sometimes say he was going to Chesterfield courthouse. Being about 10 years old at the time, I just assumed he had gone to the courthouse in the town for some business. I was to learn, many years later, he meant something entirely different. He was going to the town that had been named Chesterfield C.H., S.C., in the past.

Column: Honorable, but complicated

Last week, I made the suggestion that moderate Republicans might want to think about forming a new party since, in my opinion, President Donald Trump and his followers have hijacked the GOP. I suggested that some big names might be among that crowd.

One of the hardest things about traveling in a foreign country, besides not being able to understand the graffiti on the restroom walls, is learning to eat certain native foods.

You probably know that the crying songs of the blues rose up from the flat, silvery cotton fields of the Mississippi Delta.

Column: Beautiful, but deadly

I was driving back from a speaking event in Lake City, the town that reinvented itself thanks to art and the vision and financial support of Darla Moore. Lake City was a tobacco town once, but we all know why tobacco fell out of grace. Well, don't worry about Lake City. What a vibrant town, and when you drive around town you see all these warehouses. Those warehouses make for some fine art galleries now when ArtFields comes to Lake City each spring.

Column: The juror who could save America

WASHINGTON -- Juror No. 0302 may not have sought fame, but Paula Duncan will long be remembered in connection with Paul Manafort, whom she and 11 others convicted on eight counts of financial crime.

Column: What should GOP moderates do?

I make no bones about the fact that I consider myself a centrist, moderate Democrat. When it comes to the country's finances, I don't believe in the pie-in-the-sky schemes of the extreme left-wingers in the party. On social issues, on the other hand, I admit to being pretty liberal, and yet am completely open to finding middle ground with moderate Republicans.

Column: Meeting Tink’s childhood

A couple of years ago, Tink took me to visit the upper scale Connecticut town where his childhood and teenage years were spent.

Column: Moment of Nature - Aug. 24, 2018

Trees provide necessary places for all types of animals and insects to use as a lounge, a home, a nursery and daycare center as well as a restaurant. One such insect that uses trees for one-stop shopping is the fall webworm (Hyphantria cunea), a common native caterpillar. These little caterpillars hatch from eggs that were laid on the underside of leaves in early summer. As they grow they form a protective webbed barrier around themselves and their leafy food source. As its name implies, the 'web'worm forms a cobweb on the ends of twigs, clumping them together for protection.
