Input from home

I know I should probably write about the current multiple scandals in Washington. And with the investigations into the Benghazi terrorist attacks, the revelation of the Department of Justice pulling the Associated Press' phone records, and the outrageous political vendetta being revealed at the IRS, there would certainly be no shortage of material.

I-5 bridge collapse a warning for S.C.

I didn't get a lot of sleep Thursday night and not because I wasn't feeling well or had a lot of noise to keep me awake. In fact, I actually fell asleep in an office-type chair in front of my computer trying to watch online, live video from a Seattle, Wash., TV station covering the partial collapse of an I-5 bridge over the Skagit River.

On press freedoms, Obama races Nixon to bottom

Despite what you may hear from some of his more fevered critics, President Barack Obama's recent scandal-quakes don't appear to fall anywhere near the level of Richard Nixon's Watergate disaster. But by another Nixonian yardstick, trying to put a muzzle on press freedoms, Team Obama appears to have surged into the lead.

Moment of Nature - May 24, 2013

In countries around the world, the oak tree is the symbol of strength, fortitude and endurance. In the U.S., the oak was designated in 2004 as our national tree. Despite this status as a stalwart of the forest and city alike, oaks in our native and urban ecosystems face tremendous challenges from diseases, insect pests and human-caused disorders.

Life and death with the eagles

A trifecta with little payout

WASHINGTON -- Folks, deep breath time. This is not the end of the Obama presidency. It's a bad stretch with an unfortunate confluence of unfortunate events. None of which will make the first paragraph -- not even the first page -- of the account of the Obama administration in the history books.

A short vocabulary lesson

This past weekend, I had the rare, but always enjoyable, visit from my grandparents. I don't know about you, but anytime I have the opportunity to spend time with them I learn something new; sometimes about myself, sometimes about life, but always it's something.

Seniors reflect

I meet with a lot of groups and committees over the course of the year, and I think it's important for me to do so. One of my favorite groups is Student Cabinet, which is comprised of student government leaders from each of our high schools. We meet four times a year over lunch. What I love and value about students is that they don't hesitate to tell you what's on their minds, but they're also very open to hearing other points of view. Meeting with these students always makes me feel very confident about the ...

A matter of conscience:

In 1929, my family moved from Chesterfield County to a farm adjoining the farm of Donald Holland's parents in the Cassatt community. I was a year old at the time but before many years passed, Donald and I established a friendship lasting until Donald's passing in 2003.
