Column: Lewis Grizzard’s favorite hymn

When I wrote about the night that a woman arose at a little church we were visiting in Highlands, N.C., and proclaimed that her favorite hymn was also the favorite hymn of Southern humorist Lewis Grizzard, the mail poured in.

Column: Leaving your mark

Of all the trees down South, beeches and white birches gets picked on the most. The love sick, the egotistical, the passerby and all manner of folk love to carve sentiments into the trees' vulnerable white bark. Arboreal graffiti, I call it. The temptation's just too much. People feel compelled to leave their mark. I've yet to do that, though if I have, I don't recall it.

Column: Timber titan appeals to Supreme Court

WASHINGTON -- When the country's second-largest lumber producer tries to take the U.S. Justice Department to the Supreme Court over a forest fire that started under the distracted gaze of a watchtower forester -- who at the time was reportedly peeing on his own bare feet -- you can expect a few sparks to fly.

Column: The ‘Bibles’ of local history

In 1905, Kirkland and Kennedy had completed the "Old Testament" of local history with the publication of Historic Camden, Colonial and Revolutionary, Volume One. Twenty years later the "New Testament" of local history was completed when they wrote Historic Camden, Nineteenth Century, Volume Two.

Column: Moment of Nature - March 30, 2018

Holy Week started on Sunday and I thought it a good time to share about trees of Biblical times. Trees not only played a critical role for food, fuel and building in ancient times but were particularly associated with spiritual happenings, ceremonial rituals and celebratory feasts. Trees identified with holy places were permitted to flourish and atonement sacrifices were often offered under trees.

WASHINGTON -- Joe Biden gave Donald Trump a gift last week when he engaged the president of the United States in a verbal slugfest, saying that if the two men were in high school, he'd take Trump out back and teach him a lesson.

Column: CAT helps community cats

America is No. 1 in the world for the number of cats, with an estimated 74 million felines living in homes as pets and living on the streets. Experts believe there are millions of unspayed, unneutered, unwanted and uncared for cats. These are both community cats, cats that are friendly and social and probably had an owner at one time, and feral cats or cats that are unsocialized. They roam our streets and they can multiply at lightning speed.
