Parker: Farewell, prince of tides

Rich: The melody of our words

It has taken a while but I have come to know writers are shaped dramatically by the places from which we come. Those places -- the ones we call home -- are the underlining, unsung melody to our words. It enlivens the compositions we create.

My Brain on NASCAR - March 8, 2016

Jimmie Johnson's victory at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Feb. 28 perfectly illustrated the fact, even though 15 years have passed since a tragic accident at Daytona International Speedway took his life, all roads still lead to Dale Earnhardt.

Cahn: I, Google

Have you ever "Googled" yourself? Yes, I have just enough of an ego to do so now and then, just to see if any of my articles have ended up where I least expect them.

Scully: Choosing not to run for second term as mayor

Tatum: Out of the blue

It is said paradox is the way of the world. One cannot have good without evil; light without darkness; fresh dog doots without clean Sunday shoes -- OK, that's a stretch, but you get the point.

Rich: Dead Confederates and live Yankees

A speaking engagement in the Chattanooga area landed us within a few minutes of Chickamauga, the site of one of the Civil War's bloodiest battles, so I insisted we take a side trip to the historic battlefield. Since we lost the war, I have to celebrate our victorious battles.

Teal: The ‘Banging Hammer’

In 1868, the auctioneer's voice often intoned "going once, going twice," and then "sold" as he banged down his hammer or gavel from the front steps of the old Robert Mills Courthouse. Thus, a Kershaw County tract of land, house, town lot or some other piece of real estate was sold at the hammer price by Sheriff E.E. Sill or Dept. U. S. Marshal Joseph M. Gayle.
