Parker: Hyping Obama’s Paris fail

WASHINGTON -- If we can be serious for a moment: The president made an error in judgment by not sending someone with a higher profile than our ambassador to join world leaders Sunday at a solidarity rally in Paris.

Cahn: We’re all part of ‘Team Civilization’

I'm having to do it again. It's a compulsion, I suppose, but at least it's a good one, in my opinion. Once again, I see some people on Facebook or other spots on the internet calling for the utter destruction of "Muslims" or "Islam."

Rich: Living through Southern Living with Lindsay

A few years ago, the magazine I have long loved -- Southern Living -- changed. Like most Southerners, I have an aversion to change which is why our traditions have such strangle hold. We never let go.

Scarborough’s Kershaw County ‘Faces’

In 1858, James Chesnut Jr. was elected U.S. Senator from South Carolina. On Feb 15, 1859, this entry was recorded in portrait painter William H. Scarborough's account book, "of James Chesnut Sr., $113.35." The senior Chesnut was paying for the portrait painted by Scarborough of his son James, the newly elected U.S. Senator.

Noble: The worst thing in S.C. politics in 40 years

I have been actively involved in politics in South Carolina for almost 40 years, and what Gov. Nikki Haley and Attorney General Alan Wilson recently did in the Abbeville education case is without question the worst and most outrageous action I have ever seen. The Worst.

Rampell: Consumers are more upbeat

WASHINGTON -- A crazy thing happened while you were recovering from your Christmas food coma, your friends were out buying booze for New Year's Eve and nonprofits were pleading for end-of-the-year donations: Americans finally started saying nice things about their economy.

Phillips: A lose-lose situation

Some time back I wrote a column about "the mob mentality," how society, especially on the internet, will rush to judgment about any number of topics without any real facts or proven truths to back up their opinions. Yes, opinions. Without facts, your opinions (or mine) are all we have. I have heard that we are all entitled to our own opinion, but not to our own facts. Food for thought.

Owens: Starting the year right

Traveling more and seeing more places than I have seen -- throughout the United States and other countries -- is something I declared I would do when I chose my New Year's Resolution.

Jenkins: A helping hand and fortunate feather

This time of year, I am like the hermit thrush, retreating into the woods and intentionally disconnecting in all ways possible. I seem to go through these burnouts with each winter solstice, and the rain only intensified it this year. I've come to accept this cycle and to engage with it in a way which makes it productive. This year, I've used my energy to create habitats for various species. This may seem misplaced. Usually during the Christmas season, humanity reaches out to its own kind. But some days, I have more hope for other species than for ...

Parker: Our bias, ourselves

WASHINGTON -- Recent events from Ferguson, Mo., to Staten Island, N.Y., might prompt an observer to infer American cops are racist and a bigoted white populace tolerates unnecessary lethal force against minorities.

Rich: History is better than fiction

Several weeks ago, I wrote about moonshine runner turned stock car champion, Lloyd Seay, who was murdered in a dispute over sugar purchased to make illegal whiskey.

Tucker: De Blasio needs a better script

There's about as much love between New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio and the city's police department as there is between Sony and North Korea.

WASHINGTON -- Flexible hours. Being your own boss. The glories and self-bootstrapping pride of entrepreneurship.

Phillips: Using technology for good

In the past two weeks, I have written, respectively, about some of the wonderful things we have here in Kershaw County and how often those things get taken for granted. Two weeks back, my focus was on the artistic and cultural offerings we have, along with recreation facilities and programs for participants of nearly any age and the economic boost that gives us when players and teams from out of town converge on us for sports tournaments, equine events and much more.

Rich: What I love about my South

It happened the other day. It's funny how things so simple can remind us of things so meaningful, of those sweets that are tucked inside our hearts and unknowingly treasured.

Morgan: The Abbeville decision

While I was taking a finance class as part of my doctoral program in Virginia in the early 1990s, one of the topics we discussed was a lawsuit that had been filed in South Carolina, now called the Abbeville case, which challenged South Carolina's structure for funding public education. Life takes funny turns. Here I am 21 years later in South Carolina when the case is finally settled.
