Cooking Thanksgiving food with a friend

It started accidentally. Some good ideas and memorable moments are like that. They aren't planned. They're born, bringing with them an ability to nudge a way naturally into our lives and become a tradition.

The start of something (really) big

As a part of writing this column, I go to lots of meetings, community events and conferences all across the state in my never ending search to find out about the people, businesses and community groups that are doing good and important things to make our state better.

Tucker: From the mailbag

• "Glenn," writes my friend Waylon Fortenberry of Chesterfield County, "I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people. I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out."

Pope calls for family resurrection

WASHINGTON -- News that Pope Francis will visit the U.S. next year for the triennial World Meeting of Families brings elation to Catholics, excitement to pope watchers -- and perhaps a little chagrin to some who too soon interpreted Francis' broad compassion as a precursor to doctrinal changes related to marriage.

I don’t celebrate ‘Turkey Day’

This space in the Friday edition of the Chronicle-Independent each week is where I am allowed to share my personal stories, opinions and basically whatever is on my mind as I write this column. I know I complain about a lot of things and, eventually, the time may come when I have covered everything that aggravates me and the rest of the columns in my career won't be the kind where you can imagine me pounding my fist on my desk as you read them. But, if that day ever does come, it's a long way off.

Camden’s African-American corridor

In 2008, a group of graduate students from the University of South Carolina's Public History Program produced a study entitled, "The Camden African-American Heritage Project." It was the product of a student group assignment conducted in 2005-06. The students were assisted by many Camden residents in their search for the history of African-Americans in Camden from the Colonial period through the era of civil rights. Though able to spend only one semester researching and writing, the students pulled together an admirable overview of the lives of African-Americans here. In their final recommendations they suggested, among other things, that an ...

Sheheen: ‘It is the journey that matters most’

I try to live life as a journey full of unknown destinations. And I do believe it is the journey that matters most. During the last year, I was blessed enough to experience a journey throughout our wonderful state of South Carolina. A campaign for governor is a journey through the hearts and souls of many people and places. A statewide campaign is sometimes brutal and sometimes joyful, but never dull. I treasure that journey and thank my friends in Camden and Kershaw County for letting me experience it.

Millennial spendthrifts? Not so

WASHINGTON -- Millennials are foolhardy spendthrifts. But young people basically always are, and that's probably OK.

Low and non-specific expectations

I used to have high and/or specific expectations for everything. I was never cynical. As a matter of fact, I was the most optimistic person I knew.

Playing games teaches good choices

Now the rubber meets the road

November 4 is past, and statewide elections have been decided. As I have discussed in earlier columns, I am always intrigued, and even a little amused, with the amount of rhetoric that is aimed at education during election time. Now that the votes have been cast, there are a lot of important educational issues hanging in the air that will need to be resolved by newly elected office holders. The decisions made will have significant and lasting impact.

Thank you, veterans

Veterans Day was this week and here in Kershaw County, and all across the nation, we paused for a brief time to honor and thank those who have served in the military to defend our way of life and our freedoms and to establish or preserve those same ideals around the globe.

Who is your hero?

Veteran's Day celebrations over the course of this week reveal, in my opinion, some of the best of what rightly defines the love we have for our country and the respect and appreciation we have for our armed forces, past and present. We have all witnessed this week, through various modes, the inspiring tributes depicting heroic actions taken by our brave to protect our freedoms. It is not difficult to view the ones taking part in these gallant efforts to keep us safe as heroes and rightfully so. Our veterans demonstrate behaviors and decisions that are ethically and emotionally ...

Phillips: A Merry Christmas to all

I am a big believer in everyone's right to think and feel however they choose to. It's really what makes us all American and, to make it even broader, it's what makes us all human. If I don't happen to agree with your point of view, I still respect your right to have that point of view.

Camden Archives and Museum celebrates its centennial

One hundred years ago, in 1915, 1314 Broad St. was a construction site. Excavators and bricklayers, carpenters and heating contractors were busy at their task of building Camden's first city library. It had been an arduous journey getting to that point. That journey began in 1914, as best we can reckon, at a lecture to the Kershaw County Teachers Institute. In all of the factors leading up to the acquisition and completion of the Camden Public Library there is one constant: Sarah "Sadie" Kennedy Von Tresckow.

Owens: Year in review

To say that 2014 has had its ups and downs would be an understatement. Honestly, I don't know what words or phrases I would use to describe how my 2014 played out. It wasn't the worst year ever, but it definitely wasn't the greatest.

The loss of parents and their wisdom

There are few who cannot say truthfully that they miss their parents after death has laid claim to those loved ones. The parents who taught us, scolded us and, at times, annoyed us are never forgotten, never put away on a shelf to be remembered no more.

Gunn: Partnership drives investment in health

You may have read about the letter of intent to be agreed upon between KershawHealth and MUSC Health/Capella Healthcare. This agreement is about more than simply the leasing of real estate and ownership of property. Ultimately, it is about an investment of organizational and financial resources in this community and its healthcare needs. MUSC Health/Capella Healthcare will invest heavily in programs, facilities, and services at KershawHealth that will increase our patient volume and, in turn, increase revenue.
