Camden soldier continues readying for Afghanistan

Greetings again from New Mexico. We were blessed as we arrived in El Paso, Texas, back in October with very nice weather. It was cool during the day, great for training and cool at night, great for sleeping. Well the arctic shift has come our way and today it is in the 30s. Over the last several days we have continued to train and have focused on Unarmed Self Defense (USD), base defense, vehicle rollover training and Pashto language training.

Expressing gratitude is healthy for you

Yesterday, people all over the country gave thanks for the various people and opportunities they have in their lives. In a moment of humility and love, some people probably even recognized that they have all they could ever really need in the present moment.

Romney’s ‘gifts’ gaffe

Mitt Romney finally has it figured out. He knows why he lost. Guess what? It was all President Barack Obama's fault.

What Obama did not need to know

Past CIA officers have been known to withhold information about questionable activities so presidents will have "plausible deniability." In the matter of retired Gen. David Petraeus' career-killing extramarital affair, President Barack Obama is stuck with a deniable plausibility.

Penske could spoil Hendrick’s NASCAR success

Brad Keselowski's gift to Roger Penske on Sunday was nearly 40 years in the making. The 28-year-old Michigan native helped Penske fill his trophy case with his first Sprint Cup Championship after crossing the finish line at Homestead-Miami Speedway, the final race of the year.

Obama’s message: Ante up

WASHINGTON -- As the debt ceiling loomed last year, President Obama believed Republicans had him over a barrel. They had won the midterm election. More important, calling the GOP's bluff seemed too big a bet: defaulting on the debt risked plunging the global financial system into chaos.

Thanks to teachers!!

There's a bumper sticker that I've seen a number of times and saw again just recently. It says, "If you can read this, thank a teacher." That's well said and actually, it's not said enough for many reasons beyond reading. As I thought about what to write for the month of November, a time for giving thanks, I thought it would be appropriate to ask our teachers and other staff to talk about a teacher whom they would want to thank. I sent out an email to this effect and got more responses than I could ...

Military Monday - Nov. 19, 2012

In my first installment I discussed that I was assigned to the 304th Military Police Battalion in Nashville, Tenn. So why am I writing an article for the Camden Chronicle? I am a Kershaw County resident and have lived in Kershaw county on and off since 1972 when my dad, John Baird Sr., retired from the Army here. When someone writes a résumé in the Army, we call it an autobiography. I will give you a short synopsis of my military and civilian career and how I ended up in Nashville as an Army Reservist. I graduated from Lugoff-Elgin ...

Real Generals of Kabul

NEW ORLEANS -- It is tempting, oh so tempting, to unleash the snark as the script unfolds: Real Housewives of Tampa. Or is it Real Generals of Kabul?

‘Person of Interest’ is food for thought

Today's column did not spring from original thought. I'm not the first person to write about CBS' Person of Interest, now in the middle of its second season on Thursday nights. Specifically, I'm not the first person to write about how the show is actually falls into the science fiction genre rather than strictly police procedural or thriller. Nor am I the first to write about why it's such a good show. In both cases, that would fall to Annalle Newitz on io9.com, a blog/website devoted to all manner of science fiction, fantasy and ...

Shall our gratitude sleep?

On November 9, I had the privilege of speaking to a wonderful group of people in the gym of Belin United Methodist Church in Murrells Inlet. I am not often called on to speak in public and although I am not the most gifted orator, I was honored and even excited to be there. This particular event was the Veterans Day Program held by the church in honor of veterans of the congregation and of this wonderful community. I was invited to speak by Charlie Nash who also planned and hosted the event. If you know anything about Charlie, I ...

Odd post-election behavior

The presidential election results have caused some interesting behavior from U.S. citizens around the country.

Sex is a powerful thing

Gen. David Petraeus, his buff girlfriend, that buxom woman from Tampa and the other general, whatever his name is, are proving once again the truth of a saying that's been around a long time:

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.

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.
