Timely financial reporting is vital

Each October, many state agencies -- including public colleges and universities -- are required to submit to me their financial statements for the previous fiscal year. I use those statements to produce South Carolina's financial report, which is used by lawmakers, credit rating agencies, and others to assess the state's financial condition.

Ready to be your voice

Last September, I was supposed to attend my first-ever meeting of the S.C. Press Association's Freedom of Information (FOI) Committee. Unfortunately, the effects of a certain hurricane required us to postpone that meeting. It's been rescheduled for next Friday (Jan. 12), one week from today.

A young girl and the UGA Bulldogs

It was an undeniable blessing when I, a college kid and part-time sports writer, was given the assignment to cover a University of Georgia football game. What I didn't know at the time is that that one assignment would provide a springboard to bigger opportunities as well as giving me friendships that remain many years later.

‘If you’re gonna get ‘et...’

Like a lot of eastern Georgians I grew up with no contact with gators. I heard a rumor that someone had seen one crossing Poland Road from my granddad's pond. Never verified that. Never saw a gator growing up. My writing career, however, would put me around gators far more than I would have imagined as a boy in rural Georgia.

See Rock City

In Mom's back yard stands a red and black birdhouse on a white pole. Its roof holds iconic words. "See Rock City." If it had not been for Garnet Carter and Clark Byers, that birdhouse wouldn't exist, for that birdhouse harkens back to a heralded part of Southern lore. Times were, you could drive along a back road and sooner or later you'd see a barn with its roof turned into an advertisement.

Where has the Flat Rock Post Office gone?

Your columnist had occasion to travel along the Flat Rock Road several times a year after his sister-in-law moved to Lancaster County in the late 1940s. In the 1960s, he visited certain sites on the Flat Rock Road, while producing a television series, and secured photographs of a few of them.

My 2017 People of the Year

This was a strange year in terms of people having an impact. No one person, or group of people, had what I would consider a year-long impact on Kershaw County and its communities in a way that I would want to single them out.

The tree

When I was a child, around the age of 5, my mama's brother went to fight in Vietnam. He was a career military man who served on helicopters that dropped into the jungles and picked up the badly wounded and dead. It scarred his heart forever.
