Democrats acting desperately

Bring on the spring

In the spring a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of … fishing! With apologies to poet Alfred Lord Tennyson, at this point in my life I think I'd rather feel a tug on my fishing line than on my heart strings. Cynical? No doubt, but at least I'm honest.

The road diet

Council and staff have as their primary goal economic development. We want greater prosperity for the business community. We are intent on creating jobs.

Why fake is sometimes OK

When it comes to tanning, fake is OK with me. Wait, let me clarify, fake in the sense of spray tan or self-tanners, not tanning bed fake. I think one realization I've come to over the years is that skin care is absolutely essential as I grow older. This includes moisturizing daily and always wearing sunscreen.

S.C. and missing the future

You may not know the name, but we in South Carolina need to listen to Larry Page. He is a very bright and very rich young man.

Fifty minus one and counting

In 362 days, I will be 50 years old. That means I am already three days into my 50th year of life. In other words, Friday was my 49th birthday.

Merging and purging

For years, I blamed it on those richly royal blue suede high heel pumps. The ones with the ridiculously tall, spiked heel and absurdly pointed toe. I was 22 when I bought them, 36 when I donated them to the Salvation Army.

Let’s fill up ‘The Cup’

What I am told is the biggest annual event in Kershaw County is tomorrow, and I get to experience it for the first time. The 82nd Carolina Cup is here, and as the newest member of the Chronicle-Independent staff, I get the honor of attending and documenting the event.

Frosts and Freezes not over, oh my!

To say these past few months have been cold is an understatement and while my northern roots have relished getting my wool sweaters out of the cedar chest, our trees and other plants have not had the ability to bundle up for warmth. No matter how you slice it, our woody friends have been exposed to dramatically cold temperatures this winter and even though spring is officially here, we have yet to see how Mother Nature's wintery touch has affected (or may still affect) all things green.

WASHINGTON -- When it comes to tackling complicated legal issues, one would be hard-pressed to conjure a less likely partnership than Harvard law professor Alan Dershowitz and Baylor University President Ken Starr.

Basketball prowess

When I listened to the news yesterday, I heard that a school resource officer (and part-time policeman) was in trouble for a problem concerning a basketball and lack of respect from a student. While I do now know what happened -- just that, according to the news, the gentlemen shoved a 14-year-old male. I also had a problem concerning these two, except my male student was older. I did not receive coverage in the newspaper or the television. Here is what happened.
