Be a pig or be a possum

Mama had great stories. My favorite was the only one I asked often for her to repeat. It has become something of an anthem in my life.

Telling a tragedy in the community

I have said before -- in fact, not that long ago -- that covering tragedies is no fun. This is especially true when the tragedy takes place where you live, or at least close by. When you can say that you either know the people involved, or are friends of their friends, it hits you even harder.

Springing into organization

I recently read an article online about ways to get your wardrobe ready for spring and the one thing it encouraged, above everything else, was organization. It suggested that the time between the end of winter and the beginning of spring was a very important time to evaluate what you need and what you don't when it comes to clothing.

12 candidates, 12 ideas

In the 2014 election, the post of State Superintendent of Education is open. The incumbent Mick Zais is not running again. By my count, to date there are 12 people that are announced candidates -- 10 Republicans and two Democrats.

A somber, but important anniversary

Of all the hundreds of stories I have written for the C-I, perhaps the most gratifying and the most tragic was "Death of a Deputy," a five-part series we published in 2009.

Keeping the dream alive

By chance, we happened upon him in a small gift shop. The clerk recognizing me laughed and said, "What a coincidence! She just bought a copy of your book!" She gestured toward a small woman browsing through a group of men's sweaters.

Should S.C. pay for surveillance?

Gov. Nikki Haley's executive budget grabbed a few headlines for its items on education, transportation and Medicaid waiver programs. One component of the budget was almost completely ignored, however, and it shouldn't be. The governor's proposed spending plan includes $8.5 million in total funds -- $5.3 million from the federal government -- for a Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Fusion Center.

Few today remember The Orangeburg Massacre

If you're now a 60-year-old native South Carolinian, you're unlikely to have any personal memory of the events known as the Orangeburg Massacre. You would have been 14 when it happened on Feb. 8, 1968 -- two years before the deaths of four white students at Kent State University in Ohio.

The Mills Courthouse -- not!

Long before I came to work in Camden, my husband and I would drive up here from Sumter to have a lunch date some Saturdays. As we passed the Robert Mills Courthouse, the historic preservationist part of me would smile in satisfaction that the people of Camden preserved this landmark. Sumter's oldest courthouse, which Mills modified, was torn down in the name of "progress" years ago -- and they built a Maxway in its place! Really!
