The first week in March marked the 112th anniversary of the birth of Theodore Seuss Geisel, better known by his pen name of Dr. Seuss, and the 19th running of the Kobalt 400 at Las Vegas Motor Speedway.
One of the most fun and interesting things about writing this column is all the feedback I get from folks. I especially like the good ideas to improve our state people send me.
Today, I am the bearer of sad news, at least for me.
WASHINGTON -- So it has come to this: A brokered convention or President Hillary Clinton.
It has taken a while but I have come to know writers are shaped dramatically by the places from which we come. Those places -- the ones we call home -- are the underlining, unsung melody to our words. It enlivens the compositions we create.
Jimmie Johnson's victory at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Feb. 28 perfectly illustrated the fact, even though 15 years have passed since a tragic accident at Daytona International Speedway took his life, all roads still lead to Dale Earnhardt.
Have you ever "Googled" yourself? Yes, I have just enough of an ego to do so now and then, just to see if any of my articles have ended up where I least expect them.

It is said paradox is the way of the world. One cannot have good without evil; light without darkness; fresh dog doots without clean Sunday shoes -- OK, that's a stretch, but you get the point.
FLORENCE, S.C. -- If Donald Trump speaks for disenfranchised whites, Hillary Clinton speaks mostly to blacks who feel the same.
A speaking engagement in the Chattanooga area landed us within a few minutes of Chickamauga, the site of one of the Civil War's bloodiest battles, so I insisted we take a side trip to the historic battlefield. Since we lost the war, I have to celebrate our victorious battles.
In 1868, the auctioneer's voice often intoned "going once, going twice," and then "sold" as he banged down his hammer or gavel from the front steps of the old Robert Mills Courthouse. Thus, a Kershaw County tract of land, house, town lot or some other piece of real estate was sold at the hammer price by Sheriff E.E. Sill or Dept. U. S. Marshal Joseph M. Gayle.
It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know we've had and continue to have rainy weather. Including the epic weather event last October, we've received 36.5 inches rain according to our official rain gauge here at the Public Works Department.
