CACCE meeting was enlightening, informative

I have recently returned from a Carolinas Association of Chamber of Commerce Executives (CACCE) conference. I thoroughly enjoyed the content of the learning sessions as well as time spent with other chamber leaders, most of whom have been working in this field from five to 35 years. There are a couple of topics that were discussed at the conference that I'd like to share with you.

Schools can’t develop workforce alone

Every time there's a societal, economic or other crisis issue of some sort, public schools are usually expected to solve it … oftentimes without any additional funding or inadequate funding at best. The history speaks for itself. Name the problem, and public schools are tasked with fixing it.

The big fish

Life hosts so many things to ponder. Have you ever pondered what 211 pounds of fish looks like, or better yet, what 1,540.08 pounds of fish looks like? Well, neither had I.

My Brain on NASCAR - Oct. 13, 2017

It's October, and only seven races remain in NASCAR's playoffs. (On a side note, I'm still stymied regarding the reason why NASCAR changed the name of its post-season competition. The Chase was a pretty cool moniker, once you got used to it. The Playoffs, well, that name is just done to death.)

Distracting ourselves to death

WASHINGTON -- When President Trump said a few days ago that now isn't the time for a debate about gun control, presumably he meant that we should respect a decent interval of time for mourning after the Las Vegas shooting before launching into a political discussion that historically has led nowhere.

Join the team for child car safety

Our children are the most precious parts of our lives. My own kids mean the world to me, and not too long ago I was blessed with one of the most important titles I've ever had: "Granddaddy!" With this joy of children in mind, I'd like to steal the spotlight of your family dinner conversation tonight and ask you to discuss the topic of child vehicle safety. It's imperative that everyone visit and re-visit this topic, as technology, travel, recreation, and materials change and advance with every breakthrough and discovery. To start off, I'd like to ...

I think not…

Most of us awoke Monday morning to the horrific news coming out of Las Vegas of a lone gunman killing 59 people at a country music concert Sunday night. The incredibly sad and tragic event continues to dominate our conversations and the news. How could it not? If it hasn't affected you directly, surely it has indirectly, moving anyone with a heartbeat in a deeply emotional way. We have heard story after story of people dying in their loved one's arms; friends saving friends as they ran for cover from the spray of bullets; strangers driving as many ...

The people of the mills

In his book "The Most They Ever Had," the Southern writer and Pulitzer Prize winner Rick Bragg writes, "As a boy, I was a little afraid of the people of the mills. They had the look of a people who had not lived as much as endured it, as if they had walked out of a fire."
