Celebrate Halloween with some spooky favorites

A few weeks ago, a friend and I happened to stumble upon a great old-timey store during a trip up to Clemson. No, we weren't in the market for handle-bar mustache wax or a top hat and monocle, but we did want to pick up something we haven't bought in a long time -- a movie from Blockbuster.

In 2007, just as I was arriving in Kershaw County, the school district began work on Phase I of the Facilities Equalization Program. Phase I was envisioned to encompass eight construction and renovation projects at a cost of $102 million, which was generated through Installment Purchase Plan bonds. Through a combination of excellent management and a favorable construction market, the $102 million has been stretched to complete several more projects beyond the original scope.

Herman Cain’s anti-race card

Tea partiers are delighted that their support for Herman Cain proves they don't hate black people. Unfortunately, judging by some of his statements, Cain doesn't seem to like black people very much, either.

Growing Camden while preserving historic treasures

Over the last few months I have been meeting with people in this great community that I call home. I have been in people's homes, on the streets and in businesses talking about the direction in which the city is heading.

Two leaders lost, big lessons gained

What makes a great leader? While President Barack Obama and his Republican challengers grapple mightily with that question, the deaths of Steve Jobs and the Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, two leaders who shunned political office, tell us the answer.

So I read recently where some New England town has banned sledding, allegedly in the name of safety, but more in fear of possible lawsuits.

Parker: The GOP -- a tragedy in 52 acts

WASHINGTON -- I'm getting that deja vu feeling as House Republicans these past several days have failed to alter the public's perception they're incapable of governing.

Cahn: Net neutrality is finally here

For those of you who believe in an open internet in the United States, the fight is still on. For the moment, though, we can bask in the glory of the U.S. Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) 3-2 vote last week to impose so-called "net neutrality" rules on internet service providers (ISPs).
