Column: Nikki Haley’s comet has a long tale

WASHINGTON -- Seated next to President Trump in the Oval Office Tuesday, Nikki Haley did not look like a woman who had tortured herself over whether to resign as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Column: Cheerful giving

Arriving with autumn are falling leaves, playful spirits and a sense of cheerful giving. Each brings familiar feelings that surface each year during this beautiful season. Even though shedding leaves at this time of year fill us with the dread of raking them, we also pause to enjoy the beauty of their brilliant colors! The much anticipated cooler temperatures sometimes cause us to become playful as we take brisk walks, slow jogs, or evening strolls through downtown Camden. We decorate and dress for Halloween or simply wrap in a favorite, soft sweater and venture outdoors! And, then, we suddenly pause ...

Column: CMA’s international presence

How do students from China and Russia find out about Camden Military Academy? Why do they choose a small boarding school in South Carolina? These questions are posed to me several times a year, every year. As I have written previously, CMA has students from 35 states and 14 countries. Fortunately, CMA has a tremendously positive reputation internationally but that is not the only reason for the enrollment of an international student.

Letter: What is Food For the Soul?

Every community has a population of homeless individuals and Kershaw County is no exception. Unemployment, poor mental or physical health, drug or alcohol addiction, domestic violence and family or relationship breakdowns are just a few reasons why men, women and children may find themselves hungry and living on the street.

Column: Probes of destruction

As we continue examining Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's high school and college life, it has been easy to forget what this was originally all about.

Column: Kavanaugh not suited for court

I wrote this Wednesday, and updated it Friday, just as a U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) inquiry into Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh ended, but not knowing whether Kavanaugh himself or President Donald Trump has withdrawn his name from consideration.

Column: Heart patient knows miracle

My own heart surgery is two and a half years behind me now, but I never will forget my emotions after being told my aortic valve had to be replaced.

Column: The bi-vocational preacher

In the months before we married, I sought to show Tink the Southern mountains of my raising. On a colorful autumn afternoon, I was driving him around the curvy backroads and pointing out spots of various interest such as family farms, cemeteries, and birthplaces. I turned off the "blacktop" onto a graveled dirt drive.

Column: About time...

It may be a false feeling, but it sure seems like that God-awful humidity and stifling heat may finally be gone.

Column: A twist of decision

Tink and I sat in the lobby of the Peabody Hotel in Memphis, one of the South's Grand Hotels. It was Christmas Day and for three hours, we sat on chairs covered in rich brocade and did what seems to have become something of the past -- people watching.

Column: School bus experiences

On a morning in early September 1934, an older brother and I left our home on what is now Teal Road and walked one-half mile to Porter Road. There, we boarded a school bus headed for Midway School. A picture of that bus accompanies this column. The bus was a Model "T" Ford with pull down shades and its battery sitting on the running board. The driver was C. L "Buddy" McGuirt.

Column: Stand up to bullies, don’t be one

Halfway through the first semester of the new school year, and I've been reminded that bullying happens, every school year, every day. Recently, and without going into detail, I read about an instance of bullying on Facebook and decided to respond.
