Column: Remembering Challenger

The race to the moon. Another thing today's kids miss. Was there anything more exciting than the race to put a man on the moon? It started on a cold October night back in 1957. Mom and Dad and sister, Brenda, and I stood out on a frosty lawn staring into the sky looking for Russia's Sputnik. There through the crisp clear night we saw it, blinking as it orbited Earth. If only we could have seen what Sputnik would lead to … weather satellites, GPS, telecommunications, and footprints on the moon.

Column: Time -o- the year, again...

A few years back, I was in my kitchen making coffee, the better to clear some cobwebs out of my head, when I heard this bizarre noise coming from outside. It seemed to be this other-worldly voice, not really moaning, but not really articulating anything, either. As I had imbibed the better part of a good sized bottle of cheap merlot the night before, I worried that this might be some unintended consequence directly related to the words "large," "cheap," and "imbibed."

Column: National Newspaper Week 2018

This week, Oct. 7-13, is National Newspaper Week, the 78th such observance. This year's slogan is "Now More Than Ever," coming on the heels of last year's efforts to remind everyone that newpapers are a source of real, not "fake" news, especially here on the community journalism level.

Column: Nikki Haley’s comet has a long tale

WASHINGTON -- Seated next to President Trump in the Oval Office Tuesday, Nikki Haley did not look like a woman who had tortured herself over whether to resign as U.S. ambassador to the United Nations.

Column: Cheerful giving

Arriving with autumn are falling leaves, playful spirits and a sense of cheerful giving. Each brings familiar feelings that surface each year during this beautiful season. Even though shedding leaves at this time of year fill us with the dread of raking them, we also pause to enjoy the beauty of their brilliant colors! The much anticipated cooler temperatures sometimes cause us to become playful as we take brisk walks, slow jogs, or evening strolls through downtown Camden. We decorate and dress for Halloween or simply wrap in a favorite, soft sweater and venture outdoors! And, then, we suddenly pause ...

Column: CMA’s international presence

How do students from China and Russia find out about Camden Military Academy? Why do they choose a small boarding school in South Carolina? These questions are posed to me several times a year, every year. As I have written previously, CMA has students from 35 states and 14 countries. Fortunately, CMA has a tremendously positive reputation internationally but that is not the only reason for the enrollment of an international student.

Every community has a population of homeless individuals and Kershaw County is no exception.

Every family has superstitions. Bill Beck's was that every time you saw a white horse he licked two fingers and slapped his palm. This action was to bring you good luck.

Column: Probes of destruction

As we continue examining Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh's high school and college life, it has been easy to forget what this was originally all about.

Column: Kavanaugh not suited for court

I wrote this Wednesday, and updated it Friday, just as a U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) inquiry into Supreme Court nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh ended, but not knowing whether Kavanaugh himself or President Donald Trump has withdrawn his name from consideration.
