President Rick W. Perry

NEW YORK -- Texas Gov. and Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry can resist the comparison all he wants, but he's more like George W. Bush than George W. Bush.

America a better place because of men like Charles Murray

As Americans, we're blessed to live in the greatest nation in the world. But all too often we tend to take for granted the heroes among us who fought and sacrificed to protect us, our ideals, and our freedom.

Message over actions gives Sanford second life in politics

Sometimes it's an easy formula when running for political office. Tell people what they want to hear and reap the rewards. At one time, that formula was working perfectly for former S.C. Gov. Mark Sanford. He knew how to send a political message and how to make people listen.

The charging T-Rex of truth

You think you're on top of your game. Then out of the blue comes that stray freight train, that looming bomb, that guided missile that annihilates all those illusions.

2 little girls at heart of Pacific island mystery

6 a.m. Wednesday, May 25. Faloma and Meleina Luhk (pronounced "Luke"), ages 10 and 9, are seen sitting on a concrete slab across from their bus stop in an area of Saipan known as As Teo. They never made it on the bus that came a half-hour later. They haven't been seen since. No one knows where they are, or at least they're not saying.

Island family

Most of the people who lived there and felt an allegiance to the crown left the area around 230 years ago. Many of the loyalists or Tories voluntarily left before the American Revolution, but those who sided and fought with the British eventually lost their homes and fled.

Triking it

If you've recently traveled to a vacation area that's popular with motorcyclists -- Myrtle Beach or the Blue Ridge Parkway come to mind -- you might have noticed the latest trend in the biker world, a development that only a decade ago would have been considered unfathomable:

A business like no other

While our mission is to provide excellent health care, ultimately, hospitals like KershawHealth are a business. They generate income, pay salaries, make investments in facilities and equipment, and face expenses related to providing care. As we all know, it is impossible to operate indefinitely when expenses outpace income. That is why KershawHealth has been working diligently to improve efficiency and contain costs. But hospitals are, in some very significant aspects, a business unlike any other.

NBA lockout provides time for new Atlanta owner

As an Atlanta Hawks fan, I'm keeping my fingers crossed that new team owner Alex Meruelo stays busy diving into the details of his recent purchase as pro basketball deals with what in all likelihood will be a long and combative player lockout.

Birthday reflections

As our birthdays accumulate, eventually we may reach one which causes us to stop, reflect, remember the past, and then to compare it to the present. On July 15, 2011, I had such a birthday, my 83rd.

Phillips: For those who truly need it

I read with great interest last week news reports about a lawmaker in Missouri proposing tighter restrictions on what food products would be allowed to be purchased using an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. The EBT card is the modern-day equivalent of what is commonly called "food stamps," and is a government-provided program for people of lower income to acquire food. EBT cards have a benefit amount credited to them each month and at the store function the same as a debit or credit card.

Richardson: Golf in Camden

Springtime in the South comes with a guarantee of two things: great clouds of pollen and azaleas in full bloom. Springtime in the golf world means it's finally time for the Masters. My husband, an avid, albeit average golfer, was glued to the television when the Masters was being played. It was nirvana for him when his spring break fell during Masters Week. He could watch it every minute it was on the air. Of course, he was watching and appreciating the game of golf. I, on the other hand, was gawking at the golf course at Augusta every ...

Arrants: ‘So, how’s Texas?’

"So, how do you like living in Texas?" Overwhelmingly, that is the question I've been asked repeatedly by both people I interact with here and back in South Carolina. Most pose the question in an uncomplicated way, often wanting to know what I like about Texas and what I might miss from South Carolina. Some follow up with another, more in-depth question about what I think is similar and/or different about the two states. Well, let's start with at the top and work from there.

Cahn: Does Tsarnaev deserve death penalty?

We journalists are, usually, taught not to use questions as headlines. This time, it's really to ask myself the question: Does convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar "Jahar" Tsarvnaev deserve the death penalty?

Rich: Miss Elinor’s thank you

It often amazes me how many words of kindness and encouragement I receive for the stories I tell. Often, a reader will write, "You don't know me, but I feel that we are friends."

Gunn: Joint replacement center offers new option

When the Joint Replacement Center at KershawHealth opened last month, it was a truly collaborative effort resulting in significant benefits for those having total joint replacement surgery. Today, the majority of patients will have surgery, begin therapy the same day and return home on the third day to continue their rehabilitation in the comfort of home. They will return to the things that mean the most to them -- home, family, work, and favorite activities -- sooner and further along in their recovery than before. Already, those who have been through the new program are excited about the change. They recognize the ...
