Parker: Feminism sees the right

WASHINGTON -- It is probably too soon to declare a feminist reformation, but a few signs here and there give one hope.

Owens: A surprising place of peace

There is no place more peaceful than a cemetery… or maybe it is one of the most peaceful places. I went to a cemetery deep in the country this weekend and there was no sound other than the wind blowing high up through the trees, and the rustling of leaves swirling daintily. I also heard one caw of a crow and the shriek of some other type of bird. However, these brief sounds only occupied my attention for a split second. The still silence in the air close to the ground left me alone with my thoughts -- mainly thoughts about ...

Arrants: Culler has heart of an outdoorsman, soul of a poet

When I started working in conservation nearly 15 years ago, I was as green as fresh shoots on the smilax vines that grew prominently in the Carolina Bays in Poinsett Electronic Combat Range. Though I was raised in an extremely rural environment, I had very little knowledge of nature. I was, however, motivated to make up for this and began reading every natural history related book and magazine I could get my hands on. Between the covers of one magazine, I found the writings of a genius from right here in Camden.

Cahn: What are your favorite stories of the year?

Friday, I drove from our offices here on DeKalb Street in Camden to the S.C. Press Association (SCPA) to deliver two of our two dozen or so entries into the SCPA's 2014 News Contest. This year, the SCPA began accepting most entries electronically, something I finished up Wednesday. Friday was the entry deadline. Two entries -- Sports Magazine (The Camden Horse & Equestrian's most recent edition) and General Excellence (our March 28 and Sept. 26, 2014, issues) -- we had to deliver in printed form.

Rich: The joy of pinto beans and cornbread

One afternoon, I had a hankering, a primal-like craving, for a supper of pinto beans and cornbread with a tall glass of cold, rich buttermilk thrown in for good measure and extra filling.

Morgan: I’m thankful for…..

For me, the holiday season is a time of joy and more importantly, thankfulness. It's a time that I try to reflect on the blessings that I often overlook in the everyday hustle and bustle that we all get caught up in. There are so many things for which I am professionally and personally thankful.

Tucker: What I’m un-thankful for

Rampell: How the U.S. economy got its mojo back

Unhappy with the economic recovery in the United States? Could be worse.

Phillips: Another place and time

The inspiration and subject for this weekly column comes from a variety of sources. Some come easily while others are not quite so obvious. Writing about a holiday or something that's in the news doesn't require a lot of pondering, while other subjects don't present themselves quite as readily.

Noble: Turkeys, Obama’s amnesty and America

In my family, it's a tradition that my daughter does all the cooking for Thanksgiving. Like all good traditions, it is a part of the fabric of our family holidays. On Wednesday before Thanksgiving, she and I went to the local Publix to buy all the ingredients for this special dinner. I know that it's special as the tape read $157.23 for this one meal's fixings, but we'll have to save the high price of groceries for another column.

Social media is to blame?

I can't count how many times I have heard people say Facebook is addicting and how it (social media in general) is both a blessing and a curse. I have been told by some people that it has been a curse to them because it is addicting and they spend almost every hour of their time playing games, stalking people (online that is), being nosey and obsessively trying to find old friends and acquaintances.

A Thanksgiving

This season, I am thankful for the ways in which we connect with nature. For me, this happens by walking in the woods. Others connect through photography, art or even the internet. Another conduit is hunting. Some find it diametric that I could love wildlife so immensely while also ending the life of such organisms. However, hunting gave me the appreciation I have for life. When you watch life leave an animal because of your actions, your appreciation for life can be enhanced.

Ferguson and the media circus

WASHINGTON -- As the curtain closes on the latest episode of "Ferguson," the media series, it is fair to wonder whether events might not have spiraled out of control to the extent they did had the media settled on another topic.

Phillips: Using technology for good

In the past two weeks, I have written, respectively, about some of the wonderful things we have here in Kershaw County and how often those things get taken for granted. Two weeks back, my focus was on the artistic and cultural offerings we have, along with recreation facilities and programs for participants of nearly any age and the economic boost that gives us when players and teams from out of town converge on us for sports tournaments, equine events and much more.

Morgan: The Abbeville decision

While I was taking a finance class as part of my doctoral program in Virginia in the early 1990s, one of the topics we discussed was a lawsuit that had been filed in South Carolina, now called the Abbeville case, which challenged South Carolina's structure for funding public education. Life takes funny turns. Here I am 21 years later in South Carolina when the case is finally settled.
