The beginning of a beautiful relationship

This past weekend, I participated in the first organized race event of my life and what a special race I chose. The annual Cooper River Bridge Run is in its 37th year of life and saw approximately 40,000 people cover 6 miles of pavement and asphalt to cross its finish line this Saturday.

Let’s talk about sex in S.C.

Now that I have your attention, let's narrow the focus a bit and talk about sex education in South Carolina. It may not be as titillating, but it's still really important.

Demonizing the Kochs

WASHINGTON -- Rush Limbaugh can relax. The popular "demon of the right" has been replaced at least through the midterms by the Koch brothers, Charles and David.

The little girl with red dirt feet

Most husbands, if they carry a photo of their wives, like for it to be one of glamour and beauty. That would not be my husband.

After the death of Dr. Yates Snowden, long time history professor at the University of South Carolina, his papers were placed in the South Caroliniana Library.

Supreme Court gets it wrong again

It seems like every year, I have to write a story about how the U.S. Supreme Court is continuing to make campaign finances worse and worse. In 2010, it was the court's Citizens United decision. In 2012, the court's refusal to even reconsider the Citizens United case. In 2013, I wrote about the arguments made in McCutcheon vs. Federal Election Commission (FEC).

Take a few right-hand turns

It's been a long, cold winter. Too many nights with sub-20 temperatures. Too many days of steady, cold drizzle.

Democrats acting desperately

Bring on the spring

In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of … fishing! With apologies to poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, at this point in my life I think I'd rather feel a tug on my fishing line than on my heart strings. Cynical? No doubt, but at least I'm honest.

The road diet

Council and staff have as their primary goal economic development. We want greater prosperity for the business community. We are intent on creating jobs. We are developing a plan to market Camden to travelers from around the nation, who will find it one of the most appealing towns in the Southeast.

Lighten up on the first lady

Why fake is sometimes OK

When it comes to tanning, fake is OK with me. Wait, let me clarify, fake in the sense of spray tan or self-tanners, not tanning bed fake. I think one realization I've come to over the years is that skin care is absolutely essential as I grow older. This includes moisturizing daily and always wearing sunscreen.

S.C. and missing the future

You may not know the name, but we in South Carolina need to listen to Larry Page. He is a very bright and very rich young man.

Fifty minus one and counting

In 362 days, I will be 50 years old. That means I am already three days into my 50th year of life. In other words, Friday was my 49th birthday.

Merging and purging

For years, I blamed it on those richly royal blue suede high heel pumps. The ones with the ridiculously tall, spiked heel and absurdly pointed toe. I was 22 when I bought them, 36 when I donated them to the Salvation Army.
