The Wheel of Time never really ends

Since last October, I've spent part of my time in another world. For about three months, I reread the massive fantasy series The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. The final book, A Memory of Light, came out Jan. 8 and I was smart -- and loyal -- enough to pre-order it from our local bookstore in order to take advantage of a pretty great sale price.

Enough about Beyonce

I'm not a Beyonce-hater … but I'm tired of Beyonce. I think she is a great performer and singer and I love some Destiny's Child, but I'm over her.

Tree Pruning 101 -- Part 1

Nothing irks me more than to see a tree improperly pruned. Well, improper planting and no watering of new trees irks me too, but I'll save that for another time. Today I'd like to focus on the basics of tree pruning and next month I'll talk about utility line pruning. Being a hands-on person it's usually easier for me to show how-to rather explain how-to but I'll try. There's just so much to explain about the subject that there are text books and day-long seminars specifically dedicated to tree pruning so bear with me.

Obama 2.0: the sequel

President Barack Obama's critics are shocked, shocked to hear him sound in his second inaugural address like what he is, a liberal progressive. One wonders what they expected.

Why I voted against the fiscal cliff ‘deal’

Recently, the Congress approved the so-called "fiscal cliff" agreement. I voted against the final version of deal. The reason is pretty simple: the agreement raised spending. Again. Indeed, its passage seems to reaffirm a disturbing truth about today's Washington: compromises always lead to more spending, more debt, and too often, more taxes.

A lot of Camden residents and others who pass through Camden had a rough time of it last week when CSX Railroad closed not one, but two crossings in Dusty Bend to replace a 2,000-foot section of track.

Youth Arbitration Program brings fresh start

The New Year brings new beginnings and a fresh start for many. It is with that in mind that I want to mention one of the great new programs in Kershaw County. The Kershaw County Youth Arbitration Program, which was first introduced in February of 2012, has been a fantastic addition to our county.

The voucher scam

The beginning of the new session of the South Carolina General Assembly will undoubtedly bring renewed efforts to pass school voucher legislation. Like fire ant hills in the summer, some new version of voucher legislation pops up every year in Columbia. Proponents package it differently from year to year, but the basic premise when you strip away the slick marketing is that public funds would be used to support private schools.
