Scully: The Rosies

Several weeks ago, we planted a pink dogwood in Monument Square to honor the women who worked in the defense industry during World War II. Among others, Brenda and Joe Sullivan attended the ceremony, because, as Joe said, his grandmother worked in the torpedo plant in Newport, Rhode Island during the War. Many Rosies from the Midlands, as well as women who served in the War, are long gone. I include my remarks from that ceremony.

My Brain on NASCAR - July 1, 2016

I know I am not alone in saying, perhaps, the most exciting thing about the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series season so far has been watching young drivers Chase Elliott and Kyle Larson race to the front of the field (or earn starting spots there with strong qualifying efforts) week after week.

Walker: 20 dogs, 80 paws and 3 friends

How about taking a relaxing walk with 20 dogs on a Sunday morning in Kershaw County? Does the thought of it make you wonder if I've eaten one too many dog biscuits? It's a sight to behold and I recently got to do just that, take a walk with 3 women and 20 dogs on a Sunday morning in the Charlotte Thompson community.

Rich: Investing in people is not snooping

During the course of many years, I have spent a lot of time in hospital waiting rooms, hoping for good news and, at the same time, dreading the bad. I can clearly remember moments of time suspended by a pounding fear resounding in my ears, like a thunderous cannon firing relentlessly.

Cahn: Once again, the people lose

Monday proved to be a watershed moment in the gun control debate. Unfortunately, it was the wrong watershed moment, but, perhaps, something good can come of it.

Parker: Trump’s pivot to Damascus

WASHINGTON -- If you turned on cable TV news Monday, chances are good you caught Corey Lewandowski fibbing, saying he doesn't have a clue why Donald Trump fired him as his campaign manager.

Moment of Nature - June 24, 2016

One of the many challenges in community tree management is balancing the need for economic development with the desire to retain trees. Conserving trees within a development project is often at odds due to limited space and all of the many facets of the construction process.

Noble: Emanuel -- The end of the beginning

In the early days of World War II, the British, standing nearly alone, suffered a number of huge defeats. And then in November 1942, they won a major victory defeating Gen. Rommel's forces in North Africa. In reporting this victory to the House of Commons, Prime Minister Winston Churchill said, "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

Tatum: The more things change

I was reading something the other day about yet another internet scam thing -- it even has a catchy, groovy name. All the young, in-the-know hipsters call it "catfishing."

Parker: Repeat, retreat, reload

WASHINGTON -- The arguments for and against gun control are so familiar by now, we might as well hit replay and skip the debate.

Rich: Father’s Day 2016

Behind the little house in which I spent a happy childhood, where I toted books from one room to another, where I knelt by my bed nightly to pray, where homemade biscuits buttered and sprinkled with sugar were a favorite treat, is a little shed which, to the outside world, is noted for its ugliness.

Morgan: Seniors remember

Throughout the school year, I meet with student government leaders from our three high schools. At the last meeting, I ask the seniors in the group to talk about their plans, their favorite teachers and memories from their school careers. I'm always both touched and inspired by what they say. I think what these young people shared with me is worth sharing with the entire community.

Cahn: Net neutrality should be here to stay

The good news came Monday: a federal appeals court upheld the U.S. Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) "Net neutrality" rules. On a 2-1 favorable rating, with one judge only issuing a partial dissent, the appeals court's decision primarily dealt with the FCC's reclassification of broadband internet service as a common carrier -- a utility -- just like electric power.

Parker: There he goes again

WASHINGTON -- From Shanghai to Paris to Moscow, the world has been watching to see how the U.S. election is affected by the latest terrorist bloodbath on our soil, this time in the shadow of Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck.

Richardson: Staffordshire in Camden!

I grew up on James Island in the 1960s before the rampant development took over Charleston and the Sea Islands. James Island was a place of vast truck farms and woods, sweeping marshes and tidal creeks. But times were changing, as new suburban developments were planned for the wide open fields and the truck farming businesses decreased. Within my memory, new homes were built where we used to gather tomatoes from the fields after the tomato pickers left. Our new house was built next to a field which still sprouted African field peas year after year. These old agricultural fields ...
