Column: Today is the day

For what it's worth, today is the big day. Election day. A moment for major change, a repudiation of an evil direction and intent or a confirmation that God, or someone, is on our side, depending on your favorite color.

Column: The praying place

It was back in the summer, when the sun hung high and hot in the sky and the droplets of humidity fell like unwanted drops of rain, that one of my precious friends called.

Column: Our prince of scribes

BEAUFORT, S.C. -- As the famed author Pat Conroy began his journey from this earth two years ago, he might have dreamed of weekends like this.

Column: The customer and the power company

When I was growing up on our family farm in the Cassatt Community, 1938-46, the Duke Power Company had high tension electric lines mounted on towers that ran from Lake Wateree across land we owned or rented. As a youth of 12, I looked up at those lines while plowing underneath them and wondered why we did not have electricity in our home.

Column: Shalom

I was born Jewish, but haven't been in a synagogue since at least the 1990s. I've considered myself a secular Jew: someone who counts themselves as culturally Jewish, but doesn't practice the religion. I'm not going to go into the whys and wherefores about my decision to take my life in that direction.

Column: Southern Doo Dads

The female mosquito is the one which bites you and she is attracted to carbon dioxide. Have you ever put Windex on a bug bite -- particularly those of a chigger?

Column: That hidden beach world

I just returned from eight days at what some call the North Coast. That would be the stretch of coastline along Highway 17 that runs from Georgetown, on up to Myrtle Beach and beyond. Funny thing about Myrtle Beach. Locals refer to it as Kmart by the Sea, a reference to all the development you see these days. Well, development is everywhere now as beaches go. It's hard to avoid, but here and there you can return to the days of yore. You just need to know where to go and that would be behind the "green curtain," the ...

Column: Beechwood shines light on bright future

For more than a decade, the exquisite property of McKee Graham Boykin family lineage known as Beechwood, prominently and extensively bordering Knights Hill Road, has been the center of a constellation of connected but frequently conflicting interests.

Column: Bob McDill

The other day, Tink forwarded a story link to me. In an effort to know all things Southern and to love better this different life he has chosen, he often checks things online then forwards interesting pieces.

Column: Meeting Mr. Conroy

It was my senior year of high school and Pat Conroy was coming to town. Pat Conroy, for an aspiring Southern writer like me, is a big deal. He wrote books such as The Great Santini and The Water is Wide, novels which transformed the way I thought about South Carolina, my home state. He wrote about places such as Charleston and Isle of Palms; waxed poetic about street names I recognized, bridges I'd driven over. He made my home come alive and read like a work of art, which it is, and this author helped me realize it.

Column: Avenatti’s white man offense and red-hot lies

WASHINGTON -- At last, Democrats and Republicans have found common ground in hoping that Michael Avenatti, the wannabe progressive president, will soon disappear.

Column: The long game of justice

When news broke a week ago that the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office had arrested two people -- a man and his wife -- for the murder of Bethune resident Adam Davis, people reacted in pretty inevitable ways: "I told you so," "It's about time," and, a few, "No, it couldn't be them."

Column: Being rescued

Several years ago, a soldier serving in Afghanistan, wrote me a fan letter. I believe, though I am not certain, that his admiration came from having read my book, My Life In the Pits.

Column: Paula's journey, Part One
