Beyond book learning

One of the many pleasures in life is watching the skills and talents of other people, sometimes seeing things you'd never expect.

Armed, dangerous and dead

WASHINGTON -- So much for the argument that having more people armed in public places will result in fewer gun deaths.

He had a heart of gold

Happy Father's Day! A few weeks ago I wrote the story of my mother here, just in time for Mother's Day. Now, let me share a few words about my father.

Things not to leave in your car during the summer

I don't particularly want to write about makeup today, or any day really, but seeing as how I've burned through four sticks of eyeliner in a month, I thought it might be appropriate. I should start with the basic, obvious fact: it's summer and it's hot out most days and if you leave your bag of makeup in your car during the day, it's going to melt.

A farewell to friends

WASHINGTON -- You know how it goes. You lose track of friends and then one day, someone gets in touch to say the friend has left us to our mortal pursuits.

‘Chronicle’ is now 125 years old

The Chronicle-Independent hit a major milestone in May. We decided not to make a big deal out of it, especially since we're far more concerned about covering the stories of Kershaw County than being a story ourselves.

Mama and her money

It was a couple of years before Mama just up and died without warning and when we least expected it, that I was visiting her one day.

YouAreVital is the story of KershawHealth employees

Early in my healthcare career, a mentor reminded me of the following quote, "We can heal people often times; we can improve their health most times; but we can care for people all times." I've seen that simple wisdom at play in every hospital where I've worked and I see it daily here at KershawHealth.

An old story worth repeating

Seventy years ago today, American soldiers stormed beaches in the Normandy province of France, beginning the painful and deadly blitz that would bring down the Nazis and preserve freedom in Europe.

Bright lights in the city

Brian Mayes arrived in Camden 16 years ago as a rising gospel singer ill from on-the-road food poisoning. In his recuperation he understood, almost as a calling, that he was brought here, he says, "to help the children." With that, he abandoned his career, and for years developed youth programs, with or without funding. He famously manages the fall Step Show, typically packed to the rafters in the Camden High School gym. Now, after his years of improvisational outreach he's the director of the new Boys & Girls Teen Club in the old Jackson High School across from Camden High ...

Rights and responsibilities

This election year is certainly shaping up to be an interesting one in Kershaw County, including, and in some cases especially, next week in the primary. Several races will be determined on Tuesday, as all the candidates for those particular offices represent the same political party. Whoever wins Tuesday will have no competition in the November general election, so they'll already know what they'll be doing the next few years. Well, let's hope they'll know what they're doing.

Some surprises in rural S.C. education

A regular reader of these weekly columns recent noted that it seems like many of my columns are based on a review of a national study that looks at conditions in each of the 50 states about such things as health, education, job creation, etc. She is right, and there is a reason for this.

Stories are good to have

It's not always easy to come up with something to write about for my weekly column. I have a few rules in place. First, it must be something I've genuinely interested in. For me to create something interesting for others, I have to be interested in it myself. I'm a terrible faker, so feigning interest is something you will never see me do.
