The horror, the horror

Ah, holiday travel!

How we still fight the Civil War

Fort Sumter surrendered to the rebels again last week with what one observer called "measured enthusiasm," compared to the Civil War centennial celebration 50 years earlier. For that, South Carolina, a grateful war-weary nation thanks you.

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

After hearing President Barack Obama's robust response to their budget-cutting proposals, Republican leaders sounded shocked to hear that the president sounds like -- Gasp! -- a Democrat.

Trump card

NEW YORK -- As the number of Republicans declaring themselves potential presidential candidates has begun to look like a conga line without music, hope lingered that somewhere unnoticed was a brilliant dark horse biding his sweet time.

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.

A movie in my mind

For a total of 20 hours over the past several weeks -- and thanks to the Friends of the Kershaw County Library's recent book sale -- I played a movie in my car.

Giving old electronics new life

Unwanted computers, printers, televisions, and other devices comprise one of the nation's fastest-growing waste streams. Inspired by the concerns of several constituents, I advocated and sponsored legislation over the course of several years to address this problem. Through collaboration with other legislators, manufacturers, recyclers, and the environmental community this effort culminated in the passage of legislation in 2010 that makes South Carolina a leader in responsibly managing this waste while protecting our environment and growing our economy.

Budget reflects where city is headed

It's budget season at City Hall. This is the time of year that we review our previous budget and formulate a new one. I'm proud to say that our 2010-2011 numbers are projected to come in under budget, and our new budget will pass without requiring any tax increases.

Coffee has come a long way

Someone sent me an Internet video of two soldiers in Afghanistan demonstrating how to make coffee using a device called a heat pack. It was entertaining though the language was pretty salty, as soldiers' language can be.

Reaganomics? Meet 'Ryan-omics'

What would America look like if the Tea Party movement ran it? You can get a good glimpse in Republican Rep. Paul Ryan's budget-balancing plan. Now, I wonder, will Democrats come up with a better plan? Or will they simply wait for Republicans to destroy themselves?

Owens: Things we take for granted

As much as I love Christmas, I have to give Thanksgiving just as much acknowledgement -- unlike a lot of television networks.

Gov. Haley in India -- good, travel more

Gov. Haley recently took an 11-day trip to India. There are some who are grumbling, calling her trip just another post-election junket by a politician.

Parker: The Cosby Show

WASHINGTON -- By now, most Americans probably have formed an opinion about what comedian Bill Cosby did or didn't do sexually to or with at least 16 women beginning in the 1960s.

Cooking Thanksgiving food with a friend

It started accidentally. Some good ideas and memorable moments are like that. They aren't planned. They're born, bringing with them an ability to nudge a way naturally into our lives and become a tradition.

The start of something (really) big

Tucker: From the mailbag

• "Glenn," writes my friend Waylon Fortenberry of Chesterfield County, "I'm not saying let's go kill all the stupid people. I'm just saying let's remove all the warning labels and let the problem work itself out."

Pope calls for family resurrection

WASHINGTON -- News that Pope Francis will visit the U.S. next year for the triennial World Meeting of Families brings elation to Catholics, excitement to pope watchers -- and perhaps a little chagrin to some who too soon interpreted Francis' broad compassion as a precursor to doctrinal changes related to marriage.

I don’t celebrate ‘Turkey Day’

This space in the Friday edition of the Chronicle-Independent each week is where I am allowed to share my personal stories, opinions and basically whatever is on my mind as I write this column. I know I complain about a lot of things and, eventually, the time may come when I have covered everything that aggravates me and the rest of the columns in my career won't be the kind where you can imagine me pounding my fist on my desk as you read them. But, if that day ever does come, it's a long way off.

Camden’s African-American corridor

In 2008, a group of graduate students from the University of South Carolina's Public History Program produced a study entitled, "The Camden African-American Heritage Project." It was the product of a student group assignment conducted in 2005-06. The students were assisted by many Camden residents in their search for the history of African-Americans in Camden from the Colonial period through the era of civil rights. Though able to spend only one semester researching and writing, the students pulled together an admirable overview of the lives of African-Americans here. In their final recommendations they suggested, among other things, that an ...
