Noble: Haley and the national spotlight

It's the call every aspirant in the political hinterland dreams of: "Will you give our party's response to the State of the Union Address?"

Tatum: At the tone, the time will be 4:42 a.m.

Forgive them, Lord; they know exactly what they're doing.

Parker: Nikki Haley’s righteous gamble

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- By broad consensus, the winner of Thursday night's GOP debate was Donald Trump, followed by Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, with most of the post-game commentary focused on "the fight" between Cruz and Trump.

Rich: The yarns of life

Something the other day took me back to a time, many years ago, when I followed the tight, winding roads of the mountains to present myself at the door of my maternal grandmother's house.

Morgan: From NCLB to ESSA

After several years of what has become typical partisan haggling, Congress has finally reworked its foundation education legislation. "No Child Left Behind" (NCLB) has been replaced by the "Every Student Succeeds Act" (ESSA). NCLB, which basically reduced educational accountability to standardized test results, had pretty much overstayed its welcome. The law's rigid "beat'em with a two-by-four" approach to educational improvement ended up creating more confusion and conflict than promoting actual progress.

Cahn: What I’d do with $1.5 billion

Millions of people were part of Powerball mania with the jackpot having reached $1.5 billion or more. It appears three winning tickets were sold in California, Florida and Tennessee. Here, those with billion-dollar signs in their eyes, bought tickets through the S.C. Lottery.

Parker: Not dead yet

WASHINGTON -- Reports of Jeb Bush's political death may be greatly exaggerated. Not only is Bush essentially locked in a statistical tie for second place in New Hampshire, depending on which poll you prefer, but he's enjoying the benefits of being largely ignored by the media.

Wilson: New year, old tricks from EPA

As we begin a new year, one would hope the Obama administration made a new year's resolution of allowing congress to do its job and not allowing unelected bureaucrats to regulate through administrative fiat. However, it seems this year will be full of even more federal overreach and this administration making up the rules as it goes.

Noble: The new S.C. -- who are these guys?

One of my favorite movies is the 1969 classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The ultra-cool Paul Newman and Robert Redford play small-time bank robbers in the turn of the century cowboy West who were relentlessly pursued by a posse of lawmen that followed them for months across mountains and deserts, to big cities and ultimately even to South America.

Parker: When fair game is a foul play

WASHINGTON -- Fair play can sometimes be a raunchy racket.

Rich: The liberation wrought by a pick-up truck

On a plane once headed out west to Phoenix, I sat beside a very nice man who was flying to a job interview. It was for a bank job, I remember.

Gunn: Better together

In November, KershawHealth became a part of the Capella-MUSC Health Network, and some additional logos on the medical center in Camden became quite visible. Ever since then, one of the questions I'm often asked is, "How's this affiliation with MUSC going to work?"

Cahn: Not exactly the way I planned

Sometime during the next few weeks, I will become a very distant cousin to the Six Million Dollar Man or, more precisely, The Bionic Woman.

Parker: Obsessed with guns

WASHINGTON -- It is axiomatic to know congressional Republicans will oppose anything smacking of "gun control," which may as well be read as "Your mama."
