I've heard it a million times -- patience is a virtue.

A bad connection

This started out to be a feel-good story, one of those you read and then say to yourself, "Well I'll be doggone. What about that?"

Medicare love chills Tea Party fever

Surprise, surprise! Faced with the prospect of Medicare cuts, even Tea Party folks find griping about "big government" to be a lot more fun than actually shrinking it.

Let's go shopping

Most women love to hear that phrase. I, on the other hand cringe inwardly. I really do dislike shopping. I am also the remote control freak at our house too. So, I guess I am not your typical female. Although, I must say, I have never met a "typical" female. I have always found us ladies to be a unique creation. Can I get an a-men here? Oh well, I digress, let's get back to the chore at hand, shopping.

J. Hoke Murphree and FFA influences

With the creation of five new rural high schools in Kershaw County in 1923 came new learning experiences for these new high school students. Antioch, Blaney, Charlotte Thompson, Midway, and Mt. Pisgah not only offered the basic courses of English, Math, Science and Social Studies but soon offered such vocational subjects as Agriculture and Home Economics.

A well-deserved Pulitzer Prize

It's rare for a reporter from one newspaper to congratulate those from another, but that's exactly what I want to do.

Brotherhood of baseball

The recent announcement that a statue of Camden native Larry Doby (along with Bernard Baruch) will grace the grounds of the Camden Archives and Museum came soon after the death of Duke Snider, one of the great baseball players of all time and one of the "Boys of Summer" as immortalized in the book by Roger Kahn.

Obama's re-election budget

Trump card

NAACP, Right Wing foes get friendly

Can prominent right-wingers like Newt Gingrich and Grover Norquist get along with the very liberal NAACP? Yes, they can, at least on the high cost of prisons.

Lessons from Patient Zero

WASHINGTON -- Monica Lewinsky is trying to make lemonade out of 16-year-old lemons. Good for her, and good, ultimately, for us.

The deepest hole

July 27 marked the beginning of the most stressful week of my life. It began with the surprising news of my aunt's passing, and on top of having to deal with that, I also had to get through my last week of two summer classes and do work for two other classes that would end the following week.

Bradlee contributed to our democracy

Ben Bradlee became editor of The Washington Post the year I was born, 1965. He stepped down when I was 26, in 1991, the year after I moved to the Midlands of South Carolina.

Everything works out if you let it

A friend of mine, long embroiled in upsets, distractions, problems and tribulations, called one day to announce happily that she was learning to "let things roll right off my back."

Ebola fear and politics, from Bamberg to Bangkok

Ebola is scary. It has scared the bejesus out of us here in South Carolina, nationally and literally all over the world.

Why a hike in the gas tax is a terrible idea

The issue of road funding -- or, to put it slightly differently, the question of how South Carolina should fix its broken road system -- is now a constant topic in politics and the media. A fair number of state lawmakers have therefore begun to advocate what politicians always advocate when they don't want to make tough decisions about the budget: raising taxes, specifically the fuel tax.

Bears and wolves find a voice in the wilderness

WASHINGTON -- If politicians preying upon your attentions this season fail to inspire, you might seek common cause with the beasts -- the four-legged variety rather than those running for office.

The thuggery of sports

The wild world of sports seems these days to be filled with thugs and hooligans. I really don't mean to paint such a large group of people with such a wide brush, so I'll say there are plenty of athletes, the majority in fact, who are honest, decent citizens who abide by the accepted rules of humanity in all or most of what they do. But, like in most groups, it's the bad apples who get the most attention.

Grilling steaks, frying turkeys

It's said that Bear Bryant, the legendary football coach at Alabama, once remarked, "Every man thinks he knows how to do two things perfectly: grill a steak and coach a football team."

Aging leaves and Autumn color

Trees are fascinating biological wonders. From ancient bristle cone pines and towering redwoods out west to our widely diverse Southern forests, the life cycle of a tree provides us with year-round interest. One of the most intriguing and beautiful results of a tree's life cycle is autumn color.
