Big Al and the rabbit fish

More than 50 years ago, I spent many a day fishing with my maternal grandfather on Lake Wateree. He was known to all as Daddy John and the lake was always called The River. Daddy John knew the location of every Bream/Crappy-Bed and Catfish-Hole at The River. Amazingly, he knew all of the fish in the lake by name. He also knew a great big turtle that he affectionately called Big Al.

A few items from the grab bag

This is one of those weeks where I don't have any one thing in particular to write about. That is due in part, at least, to the fact that I was sick most of last week with a touch of bronchitis. What fun.

The terror of not knowing

Gay marriage battle not same as civil rights movement

No one wants to be labeled a bigot. Not in this day or age. Not at this time in American culture, and especially not pertaining to the current battle on gay marriage.

When profiling becomes a real menace

Some media found the possibility that foreign terrorists bombed the Boston Marathon to be too tantalizing an explanation to pass up, even when it snares the wrong suspects.

Spring-time tips for healthy trees

I said this last month, but now I really mean it -- Happy Spring! It's evident spring is here by seeing the hordes of folks scurrying around in the garden section of many of our local stores. For many of us the allure of warm weather and blooming plants stirs us to get outside and get our hands in the dirt. If you haven't gotten outside yet to do your spring cleaning, sprucing and planting, let me offer some tips to ensure your trees provide you with decades of enjoyment.

Issues with airplanes

This weekend, I will be traveling via airplane for the first time alone. Needless to say, I'm pretty nervous about the whole ordeal. For starters, I'm terrified of heights. I'm talking, if I see a photo of someone skydiving or one of those "cool" pictures in National Geographic where a person is scaling a cliff, my heart rate automatically speeds up and I feel nauseous, bordering on a panic attack, and have to turn the page as quickly as possible. I get nervous looking out the window of a third-story building window. If I ever went to ...

Immigration discussion begins

By the time you read this, a group of United States Senators will likely have introduced the first significant proposal on immigration reform in more than 20 years. While it is far too early to comment on its content -- the group has been fairly secretive as to details -- the simple fact that such a high profile group will be offering a proposal is noteworthy. And it offers a good opportunity to talk, generally about immigration.

A friend and a fireball

My initial reaction was to bend over double and my next thought was to wonder what happened to all of the oxygen in the room. Johnny Jaynes and I have been good buddies for more than half a century and even though we are good friends, neither us want the other to go "one up." This day, he won.

‘You know nothing, John King’

In George R.R. Martin's fantasy series "A Song of Ice and Fire," a Wildling woman named Ygritte often tells one of the main characters "You know nothing, Jon Snow." She says it because Jon, a member of the Nightwatch guard, tends to jump to conclusions about her people based on the stories he's heard back in his home territory. Jon's mistakes are honest ones: he grew up hearing those stories, and it's hard to shake your upbringing. At least Jon's trying.

More about River Monsters host

Community support is insanely valuable in so many areas of our lives. Everyone has a dream, or at least something they hope to achieve, and more times than we may want to admit, achieving the dream requires some kind of support from the community, whether it be local, national or international. A lot of times our wildest dreams will force us to ask people for things that make us feel vulnerable in a way.
