Rich: The melody of our words

It has taken a while but I have come to know writers are shaped dramatically by the places from which we come. Those places -- the ones we call home -- are the underlining, unsung melody to our words. It enlivens the compositions we create.

My Brain on NASCAR - March 8, 2016

Jimmie Johnson's victory at Atlanta Motor Speedway on Feb. 28 perfectly illustrated the fact, even though 15 years have passed since a tragic accident at Daytona International Speedway took his life, all roads still lead to Dale Earnhardt.

Cahn: I, Google

Have you ever "Googled" yourself? Yes, I have just enough of an ego to do so now and then, just to see if any of my articles have ended up where I least expect them.

Parker: Inoculated against truth

WASHINGTON -- By now it's obvious lecturing Donald Trump supporters about why they shouldn't vote for him only confirms their convictions.

Scully: Choosing not to run for second term as mayor

After much deliberation, I have chosen not to run for a second term as mayor. The last three and a half years have offered me the singular privilege of serving this community. The people of Camden humble me with their kindness and support, and above all, their concern for the city.

Noble: Who are S.C. Democratic and Republican voters?

Politics is all about opinions and everyone has one. When it comes to partisan politics, our opinions are often based on what we read or see on TV, stereotypes and prejudice and sometimes facts. But not, too often, facts.

Tatum: Out of the blue

It is said paradox is the way of the world. One cannot have good without evil; light without darkness; fresh dog doots without clean Sunday shoes -- OK, that's a stretch, but you get the point.

Rich: Dead Confederates and live Yankees

A speaking engagement in the Chattanooga area landed us within a few minutes of Chickamauga, the site of one of the Civil War's bloodiest battles, so I insisted we take a side trip to the historic battlefield. Since we lost the war, I have to celebrate our victorious battles.

Teal: The ‘Banging Hammer’

In 1868, the auctioneer's voice often intoned "going once, going twice," and then "sold" as he banged down his hammer or gavel from the front steps of the old Robert Mills Courthouse. Thus, a Kershaw County tract of land, house, town lot or some other piece of real estate was sold at the hammer price by Sheriff E.E. Sill or Dept. U. S. Marshal Joseph M. Gayle.

Moment of Nature - Feb. 26, 2016

It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know we've had and continue to have rainy weather. Including the epic weather event last October, we've received 36.5 inches rain according to our official rain gauge here at the Public Works Department. While these past months have made for a dreary winter, I'm certainly not going to complain because it's good for the trees ... kind of.
