Column: ‘Going Bill’

I lost a very good friend three weeks ago. His name "is" Bill, not "was" as I find it too hard and too soon to use the past tense. Some of you reading this may not know Bill but his story is one we can all gain perspective from. His passing was sudden and unexpected, and at the least, a stunning blow to all who knew and loved him including myself, like an incredibly bad dream we can't wake up from. It is a harsh reality that quickly reminds us just how fragile life is. The loss of someone ...

Column: Social media could destroy us

I am convinced that in less than 100 years, historians will conclude that the widespread adoption of social media was the catalyst that ended the great experiment called America. My attempt today is to present a logical argument that supports this dire prediction.

Column: www.k-through-12.com

Column: Having enough

When I was a child growing up, we always had enough. If you asked Daddy, I am sure he would have said that we had an abundance.

Column: Dinner on the church grounds

My back road travels take me by many a rural church. And what do I see? A fellowship hall. Often its architecture is out of step with the church itself but it's not out of step with the times. To have a fellowship or social hall is a trendy thing. Well, it wasn't always this way.

Column: An afternoon for redfish

Many years it's been since I fished, 40 at least. The drought ended August 22. Out onto Port Royal I went with Beaufort fishing guide, Capt. Tuck Scott, and Tony Royal of Baystreet Outfitters. Out we went in Scott's Hells Bay Stealth, a shallow water skiff. We sought redfish, which go by various names … spot tail, red drum, channel bass, and "red."

Column: A house for more than court

During the 1930s, I remember hearing my father, who was born in 1892, sometimes say he was going to Chesterfield courthouse. Being about 10 years old at the time, I just assumed he had gone to the courthouse in the town for some business. I was to learn, many years later, he meant something entirely different. He was going to the town that had been named Chesterfield C.H., S.C., in the past.

Column: Honorable, but complicated

Last week, I made the suggestion that moderate Republicans might want to think about forming a new party since, in my opinion, President Donald Trump and his followers have hijacked the GOP. I suggested that some big names might be among that crowd.
