Mischner: Glenn Tucker, a helluva newspaperman

After many, many years, today may be Glenn Tucker's final column with the Chronicle-Independent (hopefully, he may choose to periodically write one from time to time when he gets the urge). Additionally, he has written the lion's share of this newspapers editorials and that important duty will now be handled by others at the newspaper.

Phillips: ‘To protect and serve’

Every now and then I revisit a topic I've already written about here, especially when there's new information to pass along or a new observation I've made or conclusion I've reached. Such is the case this week.

Parker: Being Bill Kristol

WASHINGTON -- One can understand why The Weekly Standard's William Kristol would try to nullify Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, but smearing all baby boomers in the process seems a stretch of veracity in the service of a blank page.

Parker: Who’s the studliest of them all?

WASHINGTON -- Because so many Republicans want to be president -- or at least pretend they do -- debate organizers have decided to eliminate the least popular from the stage based on how they rank in the latest national polls.

Noble: S.C. profiles in courage

As a very young boy of 9 years old, I first became interested in politics when my father off-handedly encouraged me to watch the Kennedy-Nixon presidential debate in 1960. It changed my life -- literally.

Cahn: The news from next door

I don't often get the chance, simply due to my work schedule, but every now and then I like to see what our sister paper in Bishopville, the Lee County Observer, has on its front page.

Rich: The wealth of being poor

My people, as I have long said, were raised up on hard times in the Appalachian foothills. I don't know that I had a grandparent who ever saw the sum of $500 at one time or even held a $100 bill in hand.

Tucker: Prom night

Phillips: All flash and no substance

I am a musician, so I am, of course, also a big music fan. As far back as my memory can stretch, way before I ever learned to play an instrument, I loved to listen to music. Mostly it was on the radio, but my parents and older sister had a few record albums, too.

Moment of Nature - May 22, 2015

Nothing instills fear in the heart and soul of humans as does a snake. Since the beginning of recorded history, snakes have been a symbol of evil, treachery, poison, etc., and because of this perception, misinformation and folklore, most people hate snakes. Personally I have no problem with snakes; roaches and tarantulas are a different story, but a snake? No worries.

Parker: Jeb Bush’s unfortunate honesty

WASHINGTON -- You know we're off to the races when the first slip of the tongue by the presumed Republican presidential front-runner consumes the news for days and launches the primary race in earnest.

Tatum: Memorial Day reflections -- Reprise

I have a picture -- probably my favorite of my parents -- which sits on my desk in my office at home. It was taken circa 1960, give or take a year or two, on the evening of the West Point Founder's Day ball.

Noble: The myth of the lost cause and the reality of S.C.’s future

More than 60 percent of us who live in South Carolina today were born here. As native South Carolinians, we grew up imbibing the history, heritage and myths of the South. And there is no stronger myth of the South than the myth of the Lost Cause, as beautifully and brilliantly portrayed by the 1939 romantic historical film epic, Gone With the Wind.
