Cahn: Random thoughts for a Monday morning

OK, so I'm actually writing this on Friday, but you're reading it Monday, so that's why it's random thoughts for a Monday morning.

Rich: What I love about my South

It happened the other day. It's funny how things so simple can remind us of things so meaningful, of those sweets that are tucked inside our hearts and unknowingly treasured.

Morgan: The Abbeville decision

While I was taking a finance class as part of my doctoral program in Virginia in the early 1990s, one of the topics we discussed was a lawsuit that had been filed in South Carolina, now called the Abbeville case, which challenged South Carolina's structure for funding public education. Life takes funny turns. Here I am 21 years later in South Carolina when the case is finally settled.

Phillips: When duty calls

Last week, I wrote about some of the many cultural and recreational opportunities we have here in Camden and Kershaw County. It's impressive we have so many offerings and they are thanks to the vision, effort and hard work of those involved, be it the Fine Arts Center, the Kershaw County Parks and Recreation Department, the equine industry and so many more.

Gilland: ‘Dung on a twig?’

How would you like to be called dung-on-a-twig? There certainly are worse things in life, but certainly much better things as well. Dung-on-a-twig is one of the root meanings for mistletoe, which grows on trees. This common name comes from two parts of Anglo-Saxon speech. "Mistel" a common word for dung, and "tang" the word for twig, combine to form the word mistletoe or "dung on a twig." This name became prevalent as it was noticed that mistletoe would appear where many birds had landed on branches and deposited their excrement, nice. This puts a whole new context on the ...

Parker: When the pope talks...

WASHINGTON -- Forget E.F. Hutton. It's P.F. (Pope Francis) these days who, when he talks, people listen.

Bierbauer: Charlie Hebdo and free speech

Journalists did not need the atrocity of the attack on Charlie Hebdo in Paris to know ours is a risky business. But it has made the rest of the world aware of the price of exercising free speech.

Noble: The moral test of government in S.C.

Gov. Nikki Haley was recently sworn in for her second four-year term and a new legislature convened in the State House. This seems like an appropriate time to look back on their record over the last four years.

Cahn: Maybe we do need to raise the gas tax

An interesting intersection of circumstances has come up in regards to our roads.

Rich: The world’s view of ‘being cool’

My parents, according to the world's definition of "cool," were not. Neither drank nor did either ever possess a credit card. Groceries and clothing were paid for in cash, utilities paid by check, and the only monthly payments they ever allowed themselves were a mortgage for a house, a short-term loan for another farm, and a couple of cars bought, over time, and paid for quickly.

Tucker: Shareholders keep eye on DuPont proxy fight

Though it's been many years since DuPont Co. maintained a sizeable presence here in Kershaw County, there are no doubt hundreds -- perhaps thousands -- of May Plant retirees who still hold the company's stock in their retirement fund and depend on it to maintain their standard of living.

Rampell: Greece’s long-term debt crisis

WASHINGTON -- Greece looks poised to demand more debt relief, and Germany has already begun dismissing these demands. But if history is any guide, more rounds of restructuring are likely in store, and Greece's creditors should probably brace themselves for more, and bigger, haircuts.

Phillips: Small town doesn’t mean small time

I have written here before about how much I like Camden and Kershaw County. That's not just an attempt to get on and stay on "the good side" of those who have always called this wonderful place home. It really is from my heart, and I've lived in enough different places to be able to make that kind of determination. I know the difference.
