Words to the wise

WASHINGTON -- Words have a way of seeping into our vocabulary and, through overuse or distortion, soon begin to lose their meaning.

Living the American dream

I often offer up in my weekly column my thoughts and opinions on a variety of topics related to entertainment and pop culture. Those are things I'm personally interested in and know quite a bit about, at least in my own mind.

Spontaneous move

Last summer, I made one of the most spontaneous decisions ever in my life. I decided to go to Chicago: a massive city in land size and population that I never visited before. Spontaneity isn't exactly my middle name, so I was pretty nervous before I even paid for the essentials of my trip.

A honey of a year

This year was one of the best for my honeybees. At the beginning of spring, I never would have predicted such productivity. We had several surprises, but I'll discuss one in particular. Each spring, a beehive tends to "swarm." Most of us have heard of a bee swarm, but you may be amazed by the biology behind this bewildering bee business.

Support your newspaper by spreading the news

No, I'm not asking for handouts. I'm merely taking advantage of this week being National Newspaper Week to remind you that whether you're reading this column in print, on your desktop or laptop computer, tablet or smartphone, the Chronicle-Independent is -- as I often state on our Facebook page -- your local hometown community newspaper.

What does a cemetery tell us?

For several thousand years historians and others have known a cemetery indicates a local town or community's awareness of its connection to past generations. This historical awareness imparts a sense of continuity from the past to the present and an expected continuation into the future. They know a cemetery tells one much about the history, traditions, burial practices, culture, etc. of a local area.

A salute to all our homemakers

You know how attics are. They're filled with junk, Christmas stuff and memories that you can't toss away. The other day as I was digging through boxes, bound and determined, to find a dress pattern from 15 years ago, I found a scrapbook from my high school FHA years.

Economic development

When a radio interviewer recently asked a city council candidate about their plans to advance economic development in Camden and Kershaw County, the candidate answered that economic development is rarely a one-man show, but rather a team effort involving the city, the county and private investment.

Whose war on women?

WASHINGTON -- It has long been accepted by the conventionally wise that the Republican Party is waging a "war on women."

My trip to Mayberry

If you read my column very often, you surely know what a fan I am of "The Andy Griffith Show." My 33-year-old son, Bill, who lives in Sanford, N.C., also knows it well. After all, he grew up with it, even though it went off the air 12 years before he was born. Thank God for the video cassette recorder, then the digital video disc player and the TV Land cable channel.

The bad rep of for-profit colleges

For-profit colleges can't get no respect, at least not from employers. Which suggests that maybe they should be getting less generous taxpayer subsidies, too.

Sweet Home Oklahoma

I have always heard that home is where the heart is -- not always worded in that exact way, but it is definitely what was meant.

S.C. won’t be the next Ferguson
