The importance of the chipped bowl

Just as Tink started up the stairs, stepping slowly and carefully as he balanced a bowl and a cup of coffee to keep them from sloshing, I appeared around the corner. I paused, watched, and debated silently as to whether to speak.

Both sides wrong in SUV vs. motorcycle incident

The story about the New York motorcyclists and the man in the vehicle with his wife and his child is another sad story and example of a lack of respect for our fellow humans. A man driving a SUV was attacked by a group of motorcyclists after the man bumped into one motorcyclist and ran over another, leaving the second paralyzed, according to media reports.

The high cost of low tech

The news stories coming out of Washington these days are pretty much all bad -- government shutdowns, partisan bickering, and both parties' leaders acting more like children in a sandbox than statesmen in their august Capitol chambers.

Sherman’s Captives and ‘Contraband’

Through courses at the University of South Carolina, employment at the South Caroliniana Library, teaching South Carolina history in the public schools and over the ETV Network and work with the Lexington and Kershaw County historical societies, columnist Harvey S. Teal learned much about Sherman's march. Beginning in the 1980s, he was destined to learn much more as he began to travel in Sherman's footsteps and to "meet" him in a very different manner.

A father’s loss

"For everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." In our lives, there will be circumstances that play out like a well-orchestrated melody, executed in exactly the way we had envisioned; others will leave us in wonderment of their clear purpose.

Some will be unexpected and beyond our understanding. I imagine events in our lives (good and bad) are not as random ...

Standing at the sorority house door

Students at the University of Alabama (UA) demonstrated recently for the end of segregated sororities at the school. Several hundred students rallying to integrate the Pan-Hellenic Council (PHC) at the school held a sign alluding to Gov. George Wallace's "Stand at the Schoolhouse Door." Fifty years ago, in 1963, Wallace led a protest for continued segregation, as UA had just let its first two black students enroll and attend classes.

Plain water for me

I have never been a fan of Kool-Aid. I just don't think it tastes very good. I also have never been able to get into the trend of adding sugar-free flavor enhancer packets to my bottled water. I honestly don't see how that fake sweet taste could ever be preferable to the taste of pure water.
