Count Gorsuch

WASHINGTON -- To review the left's reaction to Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch is to infer he's the spawn of Dracula -- a cruel and bloodless beast who shrinks from the light and plays havoc with history.

The bi-vocational preacher

In the months before we married, I sought to show Tink the Southern mountains of my raising. On a colorful autumn afternoon, I was driving him around the curvy backroads and pointing out spots of various interest such as family farms, cemeteries and birthplaces. I turned off the "blacktop" onto a graveled dirt drive.

Across Governor Richard I. Manning’s Desk

As one of his more obscure and less publicized duties, Governor Richard I. Manning served ex officio as a member of the Board of Trustees of the S.C. College from 1824-26. Although an obscure duty, his service would have a far-reaching influence on the Library of the S.C. College and the scholarly communities of the state and nation.

Taking immigration personally

I take the new administration's current immigration policy very personally because it seems to be an attempt to keep people of a particular religion out of our country. I was born, raised and culturally identify myself as Jewish. I was also taught to respect all religions.

The tractor

It was time for spring cleaning around the Rondarosa which seems to always start with a ton of limbs, twigs and branches that have fallen during the winter. For the past several years, as the climate varies between too much rain and drought conditions, the trees have suffered terribly. A few huge oaks have uprooted while others gave up the ghost by breaking in half and falling over.

America is still great

Whichever way our pendulum swings, whether it's to the left or the right or somewhere in between, I think it is a reasonable assumption that many of us as of late have pondered over questions like: where do we go from this point forward, what are the important values we wish to live by, and what roles can we play in our communities to achieve these for ourselves and our families. We can begin by being reminded of the values, the principles, and the traditions that our great country was built upon. We can be reminded of our Founding ...

We are better than we think we are

South Carolina is a unique state. We are not like other states -- partly because of our history, our culture and our politics.

Carl Edwards' retirement

On Wednesday, Jan. 11, sporting a collared shirt and blazer rather than his trademark No. 99 Toyota logo-wear, Carl Edwards announced his retirement from full-time NASCAR competition.

Jack Daniel and his legacy

A while back, a Los Angeles-based producer approached Tink and me to gauge our potential interest in writing a historical mini-series about the life of whiskey maker Jack Daniel. Though most people in Hollywood are incredulous that an accomplished television writer like John Tinker would just up and move to the Deep South, they are smart enough to know that it does, in fact, increase his creative I.Q. He is developing material by simply living among of a region of people so different from Beverly Hills or Pacific Palisades.

Balding no easy task for most macho men

I have several friends who are bald or who are balding, and they are all quite excited about the discovery of a blood pressure medication that actually grows hair as a side effect.

Blue states in for a world of pain

WASHINGTON -- If blue states think they're going to be shielded from the coming Trump tsunami, they're sorely mistaken.

My internship

For more than six years, the city of Camden has been fortunate to have its first certified arborist. Specifically, the job holds the title of urban forestry (which includes arboriculture, horticulture, and of course forestry) and is within the city's department of public works. Liz Gilland is the sole member of this department.

So you think you know South Carolina?

It's no secret that I'm a sucker for all things South Carolina -- our history, politics, people, culture, places, food -- everything. And since we are such a wonderful -- and weird -- state, there's an awful lot to know and always something new to learn.
