Despite setbacks, Nadal will remain first-rate

It's been more than six months since former world No. 1 tennis player Rafael Nadal has played competitively on the ATP tour, but tennis fans shouldn't be counting out the 26-year-old Spaniard in 2013.

A hidden side to Honey Boo Boo

It was hardly surprising for Time magazine to choose President Barack Obama to be its "Person of the Year." But for a new face that represents the spirit of these times, I believe a serious argument can be made for Alana Thompson, better known to many as TLC's pint-sized reality-TV star, Honey Boo Boo.

The best Star Trek started 20 years ago

My love of science fiction, especially Star Trek, is well known to long-time readers. I have enjoyed every incarnation, from the original, somewhat campy series of the 1960s to the 2009 "reboot" movie by J.J. Abrams. I've enjoyed each series, but -- and this may surprise some people -- none more than Star Trek: Deep Space Nine.

Trends: are they important?

A friend of mine recently commented about his 30-pound overweight problem, "You know, Teal, I looked down at my waist and realized the pounds had just crept up on me over the years." That's the nature of trends. Some develop slowly while some others develop quicker and become more noticeable.

A family history of military service

Ready to travel the world, Ronald Moss joined the U.S. Army in 1946. He went to Ft. Bennon, Ga.; Ft. Louis, Wash.; Camp Stoneman, Calif.; the Philippines; Hawaii; and learned to speak Japanese while in Japan. He was a part of the Pacific Theater of Operations during World War II.

Pigskin love

This past Sunday, I walked into my neighbor's house and was met by a wave of burgundy, gold and white. I quickly wondered how I could hide the obnoxious blue and white scarf I was wearing. Where were the other Dallas fans, I thought. And then from across the room, I spotted a lone comrade donning the Cowboys jersey. Two fans are always better than one. However, three interceptions later, the Redskins are in the playoffs and Dallas goes home. Maybe next year, Tony. I continue to be amazed at the enthusiasm and allegiance of the American football fan ...

Print’s longtime passing

HASHTAG, America -- It is comforting to think of death as a passing rather than an end. In that vein, I prefer to think of Steve Jobs' final words as editorial commentary: "Oh wow. Oh wow. Oh wow."

At city hall

When people ask me, "How's it going?" I tell them, "exhilarating," a new word for me.

Too many people who should not have guns do

On the day after the recent massacre at an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., police in Newport Beach, Calif., took a man into custody for allegedly firing more than 50 rounds from a semi-automatic handgun in the parking lot of a shopping mall. He aimed into the air and no one was hit, though one person was hurt slightly while running away. Police say 42-year-old Marcos Gurrola was destitute and frustrated with his circumstances. Firing dozens of rounds at the sky was his way of venting.

Voters are my People of the Year

When I thought long and hard about who or what to write about for my annual, year-end "...of the Year" column, and when I looked back at what appeared to be 2012's biggest stories in the C-I, the choice was clear: the voters of Kershaw County.
