A bum year in Washington

WASHINGTON -- What a massively disappointing year, and how slim the hopes for a more productive 2014.

Christmas morning joy

Christmas morning is a time for family, food and tradition. It's such a beautiful and special occurrence and I love that this year we have a new addition to our Christmas morning tradition -- my adorable, precious and perfect nephew, Harrison.

KershawHealth is story of the year

At the end of past years, I've picked out a person or group of the year, sometimes both. This year, I'm not so much highlighting a group as I am an organization. Really, what I'm doing is recognizing the year's biggest story.

Nelson Mandela, South Carolina, and ‘A better life for all’

"Imagine you're the head of, say, a big German manufacturing company, and you're thinking of putting a sizable number of jobs here in South Carolina," said a South Carolina business leader to me recently. "And then you open up your morning newspaper and see this kind of knucklehead stuff. Is it an absolute deal breaker? Hopefully not. But it certainly doesn't help."

Carolina Ladies Aide Society visit Archives

"Camden in the Civil War: The Home Front" exhibit runs through Saturday, January 11, 2014. To cap off the run of this exhibit, the Carolina Ladies Aide Society from Summerville, S.C. will present a program that day from 10:00 until 4:00.

‘What kind of experience…?’

Today is my last day at the Chronicle-Independent, but surely just the beginning of my exploration into the wonderful world of traditional and new media forms. Instead of a good-bye or reflection of my time in Kershaw County, I wanted to leave you with parts of three of my journal entries from a few weeks ago. Thanks to everyone I've worked with throughout the last two years; I've surely enjoyed Kershaw County and I'm sure I will see many of you again in the future.

Dreaming of a penguin Christmas

WASHINGTON -- When, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a miniature sleigh, and eight tiny reindeer.

The world is your runway

I've always admired people who take chances, who step out into the world and do something that seems scary and bold. I'm not always that way, so when I see someone take a step out of their comfort zone and into something new, I'm quite impressed.

Holy suckitude!

WASHINGTON -- 'Tis the season and Nancy Pelosi has given the hands-down best gift to the American people -- her phrase "Embrace the suck."

Wagging the Dog

A few months ago, I was talking with a mother of a private school student, and I asked her if she minded telling me why she chose a private school for her child. I've asked this question to numerous private school parents over the years, and I always learn something. But the answer I got in this case was one that I hadn't heard before. This mother said, "I don't want my child to be a test score." She went on to tell me that in her opinion, standardized testing in public schools had become more important ...

Remembering those who left us this year

As we approach the end of 2013, I thought about those who have left us -- those whose deaths are notable either because of who they were or the circumstances of their passing. While everyone notes the passing of luminaries, what about the people we've lost this year in Kershaw County? My list is not long, although there were certainly a lot of obituaries to go through; some even made the front page.

What was the question?

Verbal communication can be very surprising. Sometimes it can be annoying. It can also be so amazing that the listener hardly has a reply except a gasp.
