Never name anything you're going to eat

Dealing with online music overload

An interesting personal statistic (one I didn't realize until a few days ago): I have been out of the radio broadcasting business for longer than I was in it. I actually passed that landmark more than a year ago. I worked at radio stations, on and off, for 14 years, ending in the summer of 1995. That was 16 years ago. Where has the time gone?

Look what we've 'Made in Taiwan'

As I write this column, my plane is taking off from Taiwan's Taoyuan Airport to bring me back home. It was a special visit to Taiwan -- one that helped put so many earlier visits into a larger perspective.

School 'historians'

On Feb. 4, 1904, the Camden Chronicle and the Wateree Messenger were joined by a third newspaper in Camden, the People, whose editor was J. A. Shrock. In his first issue editor Shrock introduced a serial feature, "Graded School Compositions," which appeared in almost every issue until late May 1904. Shrock explained, "The editor was unfortunate … to secure only a limited education, and feels the keenest interest in assisting others who were more fortunate than himself."

A cry for justice

Well, folks, after more than three months of speculation, of debates, of arguing, bickering and online name calling, a grand jury in St. Louis County, Mo., finally came to a conclusion earlier this week. The 12-person panel was presented with and studied all the evidence in the case of the death of 18-year-old Michael Brown in August and concluded there were no indications that Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson committed any crime when he shot and killed Brown.

It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

Yes, I know it's only just Thanksgiving but, admit it, many of you will be getting out the holiday lights and wreaths from the attic this weekend or going to buy your Christmas tree! Here at the city, we've had to start early as it takes time for us to deck the halls for December. Our street and electric department crews have been diligently working to decorate for Christmas. Thanks to their efforts, we'll have embellished light poles throughout the city and a lot of lit trees, too.

Cooking Thanksgiving food with a friend

It started accidentally. Some good ideas and memorable moments are like that. They aren't planned. They're born, bringing with them an ability to nudge a way naturally into our lives and become a tradition.

The start of something (really) big

As a part of writing this column, I go to lots of meetings, community events and conferences all across the state in my never ending search to find out about the people, businesses and community groups that are doing good and important things to make our state better.
