Rich: How fast rumors go

Carrie called the other day and I grabbed the phone just as I was coming in from the garage. I dropped my purse at the foot of the stairs and sat down on a step to talk. No conversation with Carrie is ever short. Even her voicemails run three to four minutes.

Gunn: Journey to nursing excellence

Healthcare is undergoing a fundamental transformation, and nurses are in the midst of many of the changes taking place. Recognizing it is critical to engage nurses throughout the process, KershawHealth has developed our Journey to Nursing Excellence initiative, a three-pronged approach encompassing shared governance, workforce development and staff recognition.

Cahn: A reintroduction of sorts

One of my "rules" about journalism is to always write a story with the assumption there is at least one person who has never read about the subject before. If you're writing about an ongoing debate over, say, school taxes, assume there's someone who has no idea what you're talking about.

Scully: Moving forward in the new economy

In visiting towns across South Carolina, I see unprecedented progress. Everywhere, it seems, city and county residents are organizing to improve their downtowns, their schools and their industrial parks to attract new business and ramp up economic development.

Walker: What about Bob?

The scruffy gentleman terrier mix had been at the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter for almost six months. Walter Crowe's team knew he was a great dog, but so far, Bob had always been passed over for other available dogs. Then, one loving Walter Crowe caretaker suggested Bob be sent up north for adoption through the local rescue Fostering Foster. That one suggestion leads to a happy ending. But first, some details.

Parker: Reality show jumps 19 sharks

WASHINGTON -- Several years ago, I heard Republican strategist Karl Rove give a most eloquent answer to a question about his faith, rendered here from memory:

Phillips: ‘It’s all about me’

Once again, I turn to the headlines of the day in my search for subject matter for this weekly column. By the way, hello again and welcome to my first column to appear in the Chronicle-Independent on a Wednesday. The "retirement" of Glenn Tucker has caused an adjustment in scheduling for our editorial columns, so mine has been moved from Fridays to Wednesdays. That's not a problem for me, but I will miss reading Glenn's work each week, as I'm sure you will, too.

Cahn: 2015 turning into year of changes

Every year brings something new, but, for me, 2015 is turning into one of those with a lot of changes. Of course, No. 1, I turned 50.

My Brain on NASCAR - June 1, 2015

It occurred to me after I watched the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 16, I have spent precious little time this season talking about the "all-stars" of our sport. Instead, I have stayed true to form and gone off on a series of odd tangents on things like inappropriate terms of endearment and Tiger Woods.

Mischner: Glenn Tucker, a helluva newspaperman

After many, many years, today may be Glenn Tucker's final column with the Chronicle-Independent (hopefully, he may choose to periodically write one from time to time when he gets the urge). Additionally, he has written the lion's share of this newspapers editorials and that important duty will now be handled by others at the newspaper.

Phillips: ‘To protect and serve’

Every now and then I revisit a topic I've already written about here, especially when there's new information to pass along or a new observation I've made or conclusion I've reached. Such is the case this week.

Parker: Being Bill Kristol

WASHINGTON -- One can understand why The Weekly Standard's William Kristol would try to nullify Hillary Clinton's presidential candidacy, but smearing all baby boomers in the process seems a stretch of veracity in the service of a blank page.
