Parker: Oh, Donnie boy

Rich: Some things old are new again

In my childhood home, I did not grow up surrounded with literature or commercial novels. What I did grow up with were two items read daily by my parents with strong interest and complete devotion: The Bible and the daily newspaper.

Cahn: My six weeks in a wheelchair

I read a fairly horrifying account of a man who, back in February 1979, found himself paralyzed over the course of just a few days. Thankfully, his condition was temporary, but it took Ralph Neas -- who wrote a first-person account in the Washington Post on Jan. 11 -- nearly two years to fully recover.

Parker: Clinton’s cracked credibility

WASHINGTON -- The first question to Hillary Clinton from an audience member during Monday night's Democratic town hall in Iowa must have been a blow from one so young -- a potential new voter -- this close to the caucuses.

Tatum: Darwin is watching

I recently read a news item about a guy, described as an amateur scientist, who has been keeping extremely venomous snakes and goading them into biting him as part of an ongoing home research project into snakebite vaccine. In fact, he has allowed his snakes, including a couple of rattlers, cobras, a taipan and black mamba, to bite him something like 160 times during the past several years.

Walker: Paul Anderson a gentle giant at the CTC

Driving into the Camden Training Center on Chestnut Street in Camden felt like the first day of school when you know no one and know nothing about the class, the school or the teacher. As many of you know from my previous columns, I'm a dog person. I know them, love them and can read them from a distance. A horse? Well, that's a whole different story. I can barely find the barn, let alone identify a breed of horse. So, on this brisk day in January, I brushed off my nerves and proceeded on the adventure to ...

Cahn: ‘Responsible journalism’ bill license to censor

Every now and then, some elected official who feels they've been wronged by the press stands up, shakes their fists and calls for journalists to be licensed. Perhaps they're upset with the "liberal" (or, occasionally, "conservative") slant of their boss' editorials.

Gilland: Tree City USA -- what does it mean?

Last month, S.C. Forestry Commission (SCFC) Pee Dee Region Urban Forester Lois Edwardspresented our Tree City USA Award to Camden City Council.
