Focusing on the Fed

"I'd prop him up and put a pair of dark glasses on him and keep him as long as I could."

Bauer’s track record adds absurdity to state’s delegation

Andre Bauer must be looking for a second life in S.C. politics. Or more precisely, Andre Bauer must be looking for a second shot at a second life in S.C. politics.

It’s not just Halloween, it’s 7B Day

Here's a scary thought: somewhere, sometime today, the 7 billionth living human has or will be born.

Obama's border blues

It may not rank highly in polls of voters' priorities compared to the jobs and the economy, yet immigration has taken on a central role in the 2012 presidential campaign drama.

GOP campaign vs. the world

How the race was won

So here's what one doctor told women runners who wanted to compete in distance races back in the early 1960s:

There’s more to beauty than being ‘pretty’

Several years ago, I visited a plastic surgeon's office to find out what kinds of "work" I needed to have done in order to look my best.

Passing time with good folks

If you are over 50 years old, or were raised in a small Southern community or "from these parts," then you may have a better appreciation of this story than others would.

Celebrate Halloween with some spooky favorites

A few weeks ago, a friend and I happened to stumble upon a great old-timey store during a trip up to Clemson. No, we weren't in the market for handle-bar mustache wax or a top hat and monocle, but we did want to pick up something we haven't bought in a long time -- a movie from Blockbuster.

For protests, simplicity matters

After spending an afternoon with Occupy DC, the District of Columbia's branch of the Occupy Wall Street movement, I now understand why they avoid formal leaders. For one thing, when things go wrong, it's easier to spread the blame around. That's something the young radicals have in common with the folks on Wall Street and in Washington.

It's definitely time to talk about Phase II

In 2007, just as I was arriving in Kershaw County, the school district began work on Phase I of the Facilities Equalization Program. Phase I was envisioned to encompass eight construction and renovation projects at a cost of $102 million, which was generated through Installment Purchase Plan bonds. Through a combination of excellent management and a favorable construction market, the $102 million has been stretched to complete several more projects beyond the original scope. The additional projects included a new Jackson Elementary School (also the first LEED-certified Gold School in South Carolina), an addition and media center renovation at Blaney ...

Camden’s other Native American leader

Perhaps it's because most of my elementary and junior high school education took place in the Washington, D.C., suburbs. Perhaps it's just the too many years since I moved on from high school and college. Perhaps I just didn't pay attention.

Photo giant near sad collapse

When musical great Paul Simon wrote the hit song "Kodachrome" in 1973, nobody could have foreseen that 38 years later, the photographic giant Eastman Kodak would be on the verge of bankruptcy.

New girl navigating the pressroom and Camden

I completed my bachelor's degree the first week of August, so I was thrilled to snag a job at the Chronicle-Independent a little more than a week later.

Corporate tax returns should be public

Tax inversions. Double Irish with a Dutch sandwich. Spinning off tangible assets into real estate investment trusts. Son-of-BOSS shelters.

Pride and humility

It has become somewhat of an art for me, that of studying Southern culture and deciphering what makes us different from others as well as downright peculiar among ourselves.

The storytellers of Dillon County

Our family has spent many a pleasant summer day with several families from the Dillon area and the experience is always enjoyable and the manner in which they address their friends, neighbors and kinfolk is like taking a step back in the "Old South." Everyone seems to have a prefix or you are a tourist just stopping by.

America still has a long way to go

There is no longer any doubt that America still has a long way to go before it can say that it has grown beyond the prejudices and fear and tragic cycle of action and reaction when it comes to relations between blacks and whites.

Mob mentality

I have admitted in this column many times that I have become a "grumpy old man." Well, folks, here I go again. I often blame technology and the instant sharing of news and opinions on many of society's ills, and that's what I'm doing again today.

How to grow grass under a tree

I have many colleagues who are of the turf persuasion and we have come to an understanding to agree to disagree. I think grass is a weed, they think a tree is a weed -- in nature the two aren't meant to meet. This is why only grass grows on the Great Plains and only trees grow in the forest. But since we aren't on the Plains or in the forest, we try and get plants to co-exist in arranged landscape designs we like to see.

When practice just kills time

Last week we spent a few minutes talking about being the best in the world in a particular field.
