Remembering Sept. 11

Ten years ago, I strolled into the offices of the Beaufort Gazette around mid-morning. I had been up late covering some government meeting or another, and had slept in, so I really didn't have a clue as to what had happened less than an hour and a half prior.

Publisher's comments: Horse industry benefits Camden

In the Aug. 31 Chronicle-Independent, we announced the launch of The Camden Horse magazine. In one short week, the positive feedback from those in the horse community has been nothing short of astounding. Due to the extremely close ties this newspaper has shared over the years with the local equine industry, this reaction is particularly gratifying. Incidentally, the Chronicle-Independent traces its roots back to its founding in 1889, 122 years ago. Coincidentally, this time-frame occurred almost exactly with the arrival of the horse scene here in Camden. As a result, we have always made it a part of our business ...

City takes step in right direction on work sessions

Seven or eight years ago, I spent a good chunk of time following a legal fight involving the city of Camden over Kirkwood Common. At one point, I'd attended a circuit court hearing on the matter and then waited months to learn the judge's decision.

Why class reunions matter so much

Facing a class reunion can be daunting enough to make a teetotaler crave a bracing cocktail. But fear not. It's worth the effort. For at least one sweet, nostalgic night you can revisit the best parts of high school without worrying about the silly stuff.

No such thing as bad chocolate

Don't take this personally, but if you don't like chocolate, you're a little bit weird.

Laugh, don't cry

Is she still here? I can't say for sure. What odd map does she follow? Does she feel secure?

Give the King Memorial a chance

It is poignantly appropriate that the Martin Luther King Memorial has stirred controversy. After all, so did Dr. King.

Planet of the godly

WASHINGTON -- Rick Perry's rapid lead over previous Republican front-runner Mitt Romney was predictable. But it is not a good sign for Republicans hoping to reclaim the White House and further highlights the crucial battle within GOP circles: Who is the godliest of us all?

Decay in the art of political insults

With a presidential contest on the rise, so is the heat of the umbrage wars. That's what I call the endless contest to see which political side can express more outrage about what the other side has to say about them.

Owens: Things we take for granted

As much as I love Christmas, I have to give Thanksgiving just as much acknowledgement -- unlike a lot of television networks.

Gov. Haley in India -- good, travel more

Gov. Haley recently took an 11-day trip to India. There are some who are grumbling, calling her trip just another post-election junket by a politician.

Parker: The Cosby Show

WASHINGTON -- By now, most Americans probably have formed an opinion about what comedian Bill Cosby did or didn't do sexually to or with at least 16 women beginning in the 1960s.

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.

Pope calls for family resurrection

WASHINGTON -- News that Pope Francis will visit the U.S. next year for the triennial World Meeting of Families brings elation to Catholics, excitement to pope watchers -- and perhaps a little chagrin to some who too soon interpreted Francis' broad compassion as a precursor to doctrinal changes related to marriage.

I don’t celebrate ‘Turkey Day’

This space in the Friday edition of the Chronicle-Independent each week is where I am allowed to share my personal stories, opinions and basically whatever is on my mind as I write this column. I know I complain about a lot of things and, eventually, the time may come when I have covered everything that aggravates me and the rest of the columns in my career won't be the kind where you can imagine me pounding my fist on my desk as you read them. But, if that day ever does come, it's a long way off.

Camden’s African-American corridor

In 2008, a group of graduate students from the University of South Carolina's Public History Program produced a study entitled, "The Camden African-American Heritage Project." It was the product of a student group assignment conducted in 2005-06. The students were assisted by many Camden residents in their search for the history of African-Americans in Camden from the Colonial period through the era of civil rights. Though able to spend only one semester researching and writing, the students pulled together an admirable overview of the lives of African-Americans here. In their final recommendations they suggested, among other things, that an ...
