Balding no easy task for most macho men

I have several friends who are bald or who are balding, and they are all quite excited about the discovery of a blood pressure medication that actually grows hair as a side effect.

Blue states in for a world of pain

WASHINGTON -- If blue states think they're going to be shielded from the coming Trump tsunami, they're sorely mistaken.

My internship

For more than six years, the city of Camden has been fortunate to have its first certified arborist. Specifically, the job holds the title of urban forestry (which includes arboriculture, horticulture, and of course forestry) and is within the city's department of public works. Liz Gilland is the sole member of this department.

So you think you know South Carolina?

It's no secret that I'm a sucker for all things South Carolina -- our history, politics, people, culture, places, food -- everything. And since we are such a wonderful -- and weird -- state, there's an awful lot to know and always something new to learn.

Foundation stones

It's a little odd to have such a beautiful spring day in January. Not unheard of, not even uncommon, but odd nonetheless.

The trunk

When I was the age of four, Mama's uncle, a kind and successful man, died. The call came late one night that his life was ebbing away so Mama pulled me out of bed, smoothed my tousled red-tinted hair, and hauled me, still clad in pajamas, to sit vigil until her beloved uncle had crossed the river Jordan.

Katie Ard Iseman Hero for Paws Award

Do you know a hero? Heroes come in all shapes and sizes, but they share an electrifying passion to help others, even at their own risk of life.

That's why Fostering Foster Animal Rescue is honored to announce the new Katie Ard Iseman Hero for Paws Award.

Building a better health care system

Eight years ago, then-Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi stated that we would have to pass the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, in order to figure out what was in it. Thanks to that irresponsible logic, the American people were forced into a healthcare system that is unable to keep the promises on which it was sold.

Hosea, can you see?

WASHINGTON -- Republicans can argue until their last breath that Trump objectors are sore losers, but isn't more at stake than "mere politics"? This phrase has been rendered quaint by such serious issues as: Russian hackers apparently trying to tilt the election toward Donald Trump; the FBI's possibly politically motivated practices; Trump's initial resistance to the conclusions of the U.S. intelligence community; Trump's refusal to release tax records, which might mollify concerns about his relationship with Russia.

Celebrate MLK for the right reasons

When I was in elementary school, I used to love MLK Day. Not for the shallow reason that we had the day off, but for another shallow reason. It was my day to watch my favorite animated movie, "Our Friend Martin." It was an amazing movie where a preteen black American male had friends who were white and Hispanic. He never showed reverence for Martin Luther King Jr.'s legacy. Because of a field trip to a museum -- and a mishap -- he somehow was transported to the time when Dr. King was a kid. He then happens to follow Dr ...

Dylann Roof's last act

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- If Death lingers in courtroom corridors awaiting sentences, this historic city's federal courthouse was surely a top destination. On Tuesday, the Reaper's patience was rewarded with the jury's return of the death penalty for Dylann Roof.
