Where did Haiti donations go?

Two years after a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, killing hundreds of thousands, more than a half-million Haitians are still sleeping under tarps, often in camps without enough water or toilets. As another hurricane season approaches, many people are asking, what happened to the generous donations that Americans gave? Congress should make it easier to find out.

Gingrich’s ‘umbrage card’ trick

What do you do when you're a presidential candidate like Newt Gingrich who lugs so much baggage that your baggage has baggage? That's easy. You reach up your sleeve and.... Oh, yes. You play the umbrage card. You fume and fuss with outrage over the question and hope no one demands an answer.

Camden ... my hometown

Hello and Happy Friday! I appreciate you stopping by to see what I have to say in today's Chronicle-Independent, our hometown newspaper. Many might comment that I already say a lot through my photographs as there are many tucked away on my Facebook page.

Change comes very slowly in South Carolina. But this year we have an exciting chance to make a difference for the future. After more than six years of effort, the South Carolina Legislature is on the brink of true reform in the way our government operates. We can change the structure of our state government and move it away from the unaccountable, auto-pilot it operates in currently to a more responsible and efficient model.

The deepest hole

July 27 marked the beginning of the most stressful week of my life. It began with the surprising news of my aunt's passing, and on top of having to deal with that, I also had to get through my last week of two summer classes and do work for two other classes that would end the following week.
