What’s ailing healthcare

WASHINGTON -- The Senate health care bill, which was scuttled Tuesday until after July 4, was doomed by two narratives: Republicans are mean, and poor people would be dropping like flies.

The sorry state of women in South Carolina

It has always been a source of great bewilderment to me the huge hypocritical gulf between how we, as Southern men, talk about women -- and how we treat them.

Moment of Nature - June 30, 2017

This is what I often hear after meeting someone new and they discover I'm an arborist -- and most times I'm able to assist them. If you have a tree in your yard or one street-side, perhaps you've wondered about a particular tree thing. If so, here is Part 1 of some common tree questions I receive.

A funny thing happened at the mailbox

The day I received my very first package from this group, I nearly had apoplexy. That in and of itself should have clued me that maybe I did need to join them after all.

Tink and the Garanimals

My brain on NASCAR - June 27, 2017

I am willing to wager that mine wasn't the only dry eye in the Palmetto State when Ryan Blaney claimed his first-ever Monster Energy Cup Series victory at Pocono Raceway on June 11, driving the No. 21 Ford for Wood Brothers Racing. In fact, I'm a little surprised our little ol' state didn't wash away entirely on a sea of happy tears.

Help pets have a happy, safe Fourth

The Fourth of July holiday is right around the corner. A few days of fun with family and friends, time spent at the lake or in the pool, and anticipation of sitting in an idling boat watching bright firework displays when it's finally dark. It seems like the best day of the summer as America celebrates Independence Day. Every year, I try not to notice the little niggle in the back of my head reminding me that tomorrow is July 5. For those of us in animal rescue, it's the day that we anticipate with dread. It's ...

A possible end to gerrymandering?

Two special elections grabbed headlines this week. There was the U.S. House District 5 special election here in South Carolina, the outcome of which will be reported Tuesday. Nationally, a special election for Georgia's U.S. District 6 seat garnered far more interest. Republicans prevailed, but by far smaller margins than anyone thought possible.

Water power

The Camden Archives and Museum will mount an exhibit about Camden's cotton mill era in late January 2018. Most museum exhibits take months to research, develop and mount, so we are already exploring this topic. Camden's commercial cotton mill has historically been located at the lake on Little Pine Tree Creek, known long ago as "Factory Pond," and now as "Kendall Lake." The lake has held a place in Camden's history for more than 250 years.

Seniors look back

One of the groups I meet with regularly is Student Cabinet, which is made up of student council officers from every grade from each of our high schools. I get very (very, very) honest feedback and a lot of extremely useful information and perspective from this group. At the last meeting of the year, I always ask the seniors in the group to talk about their plans and their favorite teachers and memories from their school careers. I'm always touched by what they have to say because it's all so genuine. I'm also always struck by the ...
