The double-down president

WASHINGTON -- Americans are justified in feeling numbed by the car alarm of Washington politics.

PGA makes right call in putter ban

The belly putter needs to go. That seems to be the consensus in the world of golf, except of course, for some of the world's top players that still use it.

Charity care costs on the rise

For the last 100 years, KershawHealth has been guided by its mission to care for everyone, and we believe that has made for a stronger community and a better hospital. Today, we continue to hold fast to that mission in spite of the seismic shifts occurring in healthcare.

The initiation of Susan Rice

WASHINGTON -- A variety of insults have been deployed in opposition to Susan Rice's likely nomination for secretary of state: she is not qualified; she's too aggressive; she "misled" the public following the lethal attack on the American consulate in Libya.

Islamophobia in word and deed

In its never-ending effort to avoid misleading language in news coverage, the Associated Press Stylebook has decided to declare "Islamophobia," "homophobia" and presumably other non-clinical uses of the word "phobia" to be a new taboo.

Why do these things happen?

I'm 64 years old, and I'm no closer to figuring out life's why-things-happen-the-way-they-do mystery than I was when I was a teenage pup.

Command presence matters

A Nov. 16, 2012, op-ed by Lucian Truscott IV published in The New York Times declares that our post-World War II military leadership has traded true fighting spirit for "talk shows and photo spreads" and "military-spec business suits" and, therefore, has failed to succeed in battle since "the stalemated Korean War." Truscott's linkage between alleged military failures and a general officer population of "strutting military peacocks" is readily contradicted by the two men he invokes, George Patton and Lucian Truscott Jr., his own grandfather.

Michael’s legacy: a commitment to change

I've heard that one of the hardest things to do in life is to bury your own child. I can't imagine, but don't think I'm too far off in thinking that it would be especially hard when a young son or daughter has lost their life to other young sons and daughters.

Enter Prince Charming

Good things come to those who wait. And in this story, the good things are truly wonderful and have emerged as being undeniably worth the wait. At times, this "wait" was home to several Mr. Wrongs and one or two Prince Charming wannabees. But over the years, the reservoir of patience reached a high and its depth paid off in an unexpected way. You see, my sister, two years my junior, is getting married this weekend. Her patience is the victor here, and life, the joy decided to happen, as she was busy making other plans.

The fly sees all

WASHINGTON -- Much speculation has followed the private luncheon between President Obama and Mitt Romney, about which little is known.

A reversal of fortunes in the Southeastern Conference

Nobody will be as excited for spring as the University of Missouri. With the school's rude awakening to SEC football finally over, the Tigers' time to shine is almost here with the conference's basketball season set to begin in only a few weeks.

Moving forward

At the beginning of my mayoral race, we conducted a survey to identify the concerns of Camden voters. Given our apparent community division about recreation, we found to our surprise that voters were mainly concerned about jobs. Recreation was fifth on the list.

An ox, two ‘hands,’ a crosscut saw and an old truck

After graduating from Bethune High School in 1936 where he played football for four years, for a short time a young Carroll G. King drove a log-hauling truck for a timber company. The title of this column describes the next venture of Carroll's, establishing his own timber company.

American complex

WASHINGTON -- As events have unfolded in what shall ever be known as "The Petraeus Affair," one cannot escape noticing that the women in this sordid saga have been handed the short end of the shtick, as though the men are mere victims of ambitious, hormonally driven vixens.

Gang shooting was ‘shock to system’

I shivered slightly when I realized that this Friday night, Dec. 7, is the exact five year anniversary of the night 17-year-old Camden High School student Michael Smith died of a single gunshot blast to the chest, the first and so far only Kershaw County victim of a gang-related shooting.

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.

Rich: What I love about my South

It happened the other day. It's funny how things so simple can remind us of things so meaningful, of those sweets that are tucked inside our hearts and unknowingly treasured.

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.
