WASHINGTON -- Barring a terror strike or an Ebola outbreak to distract us, the 2016 presidential election seems headed for a gender identity showdown.
OK, the headline got your attention, so now hopefully you will read the whole column -- and no, it's not technically true. Andy Griffith died in 2012 and he was from North Carolina, not South Carolina.
There are times when folks ask me questions about NASCAR and I find myself at a loss for words -- which is the rarest of occurrences, believe me -- and then there are other times when folks ask me questions about NASCAR, and I can't say enough.
Whoever said "money can't buy happiness" either never had it or just took it way too seriously. With enough money, you can, in fact, buy a lot of happiness, or rather, peace of mind, which is a very clearly marked and well-paved route to happiness.
Carrie called the other day and I grabbed the phone just as I was coming in from the garage. I dropped my purse at the foot of the stairs and sat down on a step to talk. No conversation with Carrie is ever short. Even her voicemails run three to four minutes.
Healthcare is undergoing a fundamental transformation, and nurses are in the midst of many of the changes taking place.

In visiting towns across South Carolina, I see unprecedented progress. Everywhere, it seems, city and county residents are organizing to improve their downtowns, their schools and their industrial parks to attract new business and ramp up economic development.
The scruffy gentleman terrier mix had been at the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter for almost six months. Walter Crowe's team knew he was a great dog, but so far, Bob had always been passed over for other available dogs. Then, one loving Walter Crowe caretaker suggested Bob be sent up north for adoption through the local rescue Fostering Foster. That one suggestion leads to a happy ending. But first, some details.
WASHINGTON -- Several years ago, I heard Republican strategist Karl Rove give a most eloquent answer to a question about his faith, rendered here from memory:
Once again, I turn to the headlines of the day in my search for subject matter for this weekly column. By the way, hello again and welcome to my first column to appear in the Chronicle-Independent on a Wednesday. The "retirement" of Glenn Tucker has caused an adjustment in scheduling for our editorial columns, so mine has been moved from Fridays to Wednesdays. That's not a problem for me, but I will miss reading Glenn's work each week, as I'm sure you will, too.
Every year brings something new, but, for me, 2015 is turning into one of those with a lot of changes. Of course, No. 1, I turned 50.
Coming home one Sunday from the family dinner after church, I said, out of the blue, "I feel like we should volunteer for Vacation Bible School."
It occurred to me after I watched the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 16, I have spent precious little time this season talking about the "all-stars" of our sport.

I think I may have a new hero.
