Column: Florence isn’t finished yet

PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. -- From dark and stormy to clear and breezy, the coastline that a million or so of us evacuated two weeks ago now looks like any other perfect day at the beach.

Column: Saving lives together

Last week, South Carolina was confronted with the threat of devastating weather as Hurricane Florence took an angry path straight towards the Carolinas. There is nothing like the threat of a natural disaster to bring a community together, and Kershaw County residents proved just that. Hundreds of people were affected, leaving countless numbers of homeless animals in need of urgent care. Thanks to an army of caring people, Fostering Foster was able to answer the desperate plea from Horry County Animal Care and Control to help them evacuate their shelter. As a result, today there are 25 canine evacuees that ...

Column: Change is good; you go first

As I craft my first article as the new Superintendent of the Kershaw County School District (KCSD), replacing someone who dedicated 11 years to our schools, I could think of no better way to begin than by starting with the subject of change. When you think about it, no one really enjoys change, but in the world of education, change is inevitable and fast moving. In many of our school districts across the country, the use of technology is one example of this paradigm shift in the classroom. The decreased time for feedback, increased collaboration and increased student engagement are ...

Column: Is there a Kavanaugh doppelganger?

WASHINGTON -- In one of Brett Kavanaugh's responses to allegations that he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl when he was in high school, a charge he has denied "categorically and unequivocally," he suggested that, perhaps, this was a case of mistaken identity.

Column: The rest of the story

Now that I think back on it, I see how I was prepared and schooled at every turn to be a storyteller. Stories fascinated me. I listened to those who told them and practiced telling them myself.

Column: Of Serena Williams and pay gaps

Earlier this week, I had some interesting "conversations" on Facebook after I commented on two posts by Vox. One story focused on an Australia newspaper's editorial cartoon about Serena Williams' interactions with a tennis umpire during the U.S. Open. Vox's second post actually served as an advertisement for an episode of the outlet's relatively new Netflix series, Explained, titled "Why Women Are Paid Less."

Column: Southern women love high heels

Recently, a friend was telling me that her mother, a most charming Southern woman, had to give up her high heels. She is 76 and the loss for her has been immense.

Column: Things left behind

PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. -- Tuesday morning, I did what millions of people have done in hundreds of places for centuries. I picked the few favorite items that I could take with me before abandoning my home to the fates of an impending disaster.

Column: Sometimes, I wonder...

Seventeen years ago, I strolled into the offices of the Beaufort Gazette around mid-morning. I had been up late covering some government meeting or another, probably even went for a beer or six after that, the better to mute the incessant, migraine-inducing governmental drivel I had endured at the meeting.

WASHINGTON -- It was Day Three of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings when Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J,, launched his 2020 presidential bid as a Thracian gladiator.
