Teal: Closed school still serves Cassatt

When the Midway High School class of 1965 walked across the stage of the school auditorium to receive their high school diplomas, it was the final class to do so. Yet, 50 years later, this closed high school continues to serve the Cassatt community and Midway area. How can that be?

Noble: Martin O’Malley’s American Dream

He comes bounding out of the Charleston Airport terminal looking trim, sharp and ready. As the early morning sun hits his face, he squints his eyes. He gazes across the expansive sidewalk, jumbled with people, baggage and taxis. He's searching for a familiar face near a waiting car.

Tatum: It’s a fine line we walk

So, I recently read about a guy out in California who is suing the National Park Service because a 16-pound pine cone fell on his head while he was taking a nap under a tree, causing brain damage. The tree is a type of pine tree not indigenous and known for producing these enormous, up to 40-pound seed pods. There were no warning signs posted, according to the story.

Walker: The stranger I will never forget

We knew we were racing the clock. Massive rain had been forecasted and on Saturday, Oct. 3, it started falling. But no one I knew expected the kind of flooding we saw the next day.

Our 7-month-old puppy, Tilly, would have been one of them, if not for a team of caring volunteers and one hero who appeared out of nowhere.

Cahn: The way we do the things we do

Supposedly, one of the worst things you can do in the world is show people how you make the sausage. No one cares -- or they might find it so ugly they run for the hills. All they care about is whether or not the sausage tastes good and is safe to eat.

Gilland: Arborists come for T.R.A.Q.

You know that saying, "Be careful what you wish for?" Well, I recently had two wishes granted. The first was for rain; and that's all I'll say about that. The second wish was to host and attend a Tree Risk Assessment Qualification Seminar, or TRAQ for short.
