She said, she said

WASHINGTON -- The question du jour is, why did Hoboken Mayor Dawn Zimmer wait so long to step forward and level her corruption charges at Chris Christie?

Tree City USA: what does it mean?

Tree City USA is a designation we can be proud of, particularly since the city has achieved and continuously maintained this status for the past 26 years. Tree City USA is a national program under the auspices of The Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters and provides the framework for community forestry management of public trees in cities and towns across America.

Playing the neutral card

One thing I've realized that will always be readily available is human drama. People are always fighting with each other and they're almost always willing to tell you about it … if you're willing to listen. While I don't think there's anything wrong with venting and with listening to a friend vent, getting sucked into the drama is a very dangerous possibility. One must always be aware of the high potential for getting sucked into drama.

The General Assembly: stay tuned

I have some of my most interesting conversations with community members in informal settings like the grocery store, the Farmers Market, convenience store gas pumps and church. One Saturday this past summer while I was eyeing some Silver Queen corn at the Farmers Market, a lady I've known since I moved here asked me why I spend so much time talking about politics and legislation.

With age comes wisdom

I can remember that as a child and teenager I thought I had the world by the tail and I knew it all. Yes, I can remember back that far. I thought my parents were the most ignorant, incompetent people in the world. The things they said and did just did not make good sense to me. I dare say a good many of us felt that way during that phase of our lives. Did you? Be honest with yourself now.

Robert Mills’ trail in Camden

When I was a pre-teen, I absolutely devoured every Nancy Drew mystery book I could check out of the Charleston County Library or borrow from a friend. Oh, the adventures Nancy took me on as she snooped out the trail of a mystery. Each little clue she found led to another and another and they all eventually solved the mystery. The exotic situations in which she became involved were fascinating. She always solved the mystery, through each one's twisting, turning plot. Clue by clue.

Nightmares in the movie theater

I went with a friend of mine to see a movie this weekend. We had both been looking forward to seeing the movie for awhile and finally had the time to get to the theater. We chose to visit a nice theater in a nearby city where tickets are a bit more expensive to account for the plush, stadium seating. We arrived about 20 minutes before the showing, bought our tickets and found a nice seat, near the back in the center.

Mental health and the SCDC

I am not a mental health expert, nor an expert on running corrections facilities, whether they be detention centers, like our county jail, or major institutions such as Wateree Correctional over the Sumter county line.

On state budget, lawmakers should try following the law

If you're like most well-informed South Carolinians, you have absolutely no idea what's in the state budget until the late spring or early summer, and by that time it's about to pass into law. If you want to know what's in the budget before it's too late to make a difference, you'll need to come to Columbia and spend three days a week from January to April, and attend a variety of budget subcommittee and committee meetings -- and even then you won't have any firm idea of which programs and agencies state leaders ...
