A stone, a leaf, an empty chair

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Much ponderous, chin-stroking analysis has followed the Republican National Convention's un-highlight -- the 10-minute monologue by the erstwhile Dirty Harry/Blondie/Rowdy Yates when Clint Eastwood conversed with an empty chair.

The two wives’ speeches

I'm going to leave comparisons between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney's acceptance speeches to the big gun pundits. Instead, I believe this was the year of the wives when it came to the Democratic and Republican conventions: Michelle Obama and Ann Romney.

Loss

Loss is a difficult part of life. It's connected to us like our skin. It's unavoidable; it's constant; it's never mistaken in the hearts that feel it. And just as skin reveals time passed, loss leaves a mark on our strength and shakes our very core. It follows no schedule. Loss has neither good nor bad timing, as we are unable to make that judgment. It can be swift and random; it can be slow and methodical. It comes in many forms. Loss can be as impalpable as a dream not reached or as tangible as ...

Rarely a winner

Entering contests has never been something I liked to consider. I know only too well my limitations. My mother, for example, would often look at me, shake her head, and say, "I don't know what I am going to do if you don't keep growing!" I had often thought the same thing and needed no reminder. My older brother spent a good deal of his time instructing me in my homeliness and stupidity. Not having the traits of beauty or family connections, I grew up well aware of my drawbacks and too wise to draw attention to myself ...

Romney/Ryan: Who, me?

TAMPA, Fla. -- Mitt Romney and Paul Ryan have one big problem that must have Barack Obama walking on air: They're running against themselves.

Offseason changes should lead to intriguing NFL season

Kicking off the start of the NFL regular season tonight, the New York Giants will be trying to avoid a fate that hasn't befallen an NFC team in five years.

'A Loving Heart and Caring Hands'

On a memorable day for them in 1920, Luke and Ella Catoe McLaughlin welcomed their fourth child and only daughter, Annie B., into the world. The McLaughlins then lived on their farm in the Sandy Grove area of the greater Cassatt community. Cassatt was their post office.

Decoding Romney’s odd humor

Mitt Romney probably should not try to joke about President Barack Obama's birth certificate. It's potentially offensive and, worse, he's not very good at it.

All hands on deck

Among journalists, there are those stories that show you what you're made of. They challenge you, maybe even drive you crazy as you try to figure out just what the heck is going on. But they also teach you, not just about the craft of journalism, but about yourself.

My friend Waylon Fortenberry of Chesterfield County called me, all hot and bothered, about the big outlaw gang biker shootout a couple weeks ago in Waco, Texas.

Mischner: Glenn Tucker, a helluva newspaperman

After many, many years, today may be Glenn Tucker's final column with the Chronicle-Independent (hopefully, he may choose to periodically write one from time to time when he gets the urge). Additionally, he has written the lion's share of this newspapers editorials and that important duty will now be handled by others at the newspaper.

Phillips: ‘To protect and serve’

Every now and then I revisit a topic I've already written about here, especially when there's new information to pass along or a new observation I've made or conclusion I've reached. Such is the case this week.

Parker: Being Bill Kristol

WASHINGTON -- One can understand why The Weekly Standard's William Kristol would try to nullify Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, but smearing all baby boomers in the process seems a stretch of veracity in the service of a blank page.

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.
