Column: The tour guide

In 1969, Richard W. Lloyd responded to a letter from George Kassabaum of The American Institute of Architects, who was surveying American cities regarding their design and review process for historic buildings. Mr. Lloyd replied, "There is no true Review Board in Camden. Instead, there is a "Joint Committee on Old Houses," which came about in this way: an old frame residence was bought by two young men of Camden to be converted into a business office, but it was found that under the existing fire district setup, a 12-inch masonry wall was required, which was obviously out of the ...

Column: The occasional double take

After 20-something years in this business, I can still occasionally put on what my old friend and musical partner in crime Frank Lee Johnson calls the "Carson Stare."

Column: Like the battle of the lost shoes

The faithful came. There were no church houses, no steeples, no pulpits, and no altars. But those who practice a secular gospel, a devotion to boys known as Luke and Bo, poured in and assembled themselves together.

Column: Pets and hot cars

Bring on the heat! It may just be May, but summer is here and it is hot. Already, people in the South are running the A/C, jumping in pools, and heading to the lake. Anything to stay cool. A lot of our summer activities involve our pets. With the heat comes danger and while it may seem pretty clear, some people just don't realize the dangers of the summer heat on our pets. We take extra steps to keep our pets cool, like making sure they have fresh, cool shelter and making sure they have access to shady ...

Column: Covering Cooter -- Part I

Once, when I was a young newspaper reporter, a jaded executive editor who was a Yankee to boot, was listening approvingly to a story I was pitching.

Column: Sentimental journey

I was making my way from Greenville to Lincolnton one Saturday afternoon. I had to take a back road, a blessing. The light was bad at 3:45 p.m., but I had to photograph this old store on Hwy. 25 between Ware Shoals and Greenwood. I don't know who owns it, but I thank this kindred spirit for reminding us of days gone by.

Column: Tips for protecting taxpayers

Over the next several weeks, men and women aspiring to elected office will likely be filling up your mailbox and knocking on your door. Many will talk of "protecting the taxpayers," or offer some similar claim in pursuit of your vote.

Column: A teacher walk-out in SC?

Teachers have generally been taken for granted for about as long as history has been recorded. Teachers are the very best of people. They want to do right by their students, regardless of circumstances. Politicians take advantage of this. They pay them poorly, underfund their classroom needs, underfund their schools and continually pile more and more standardized tests and mandates on them.

Column: Making hay with horse sense

WASHINGTON -- When Donald Trump said, "I could stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody and I wouldn't lose voters," it's a good thing he didn't say horses.

Column: Squatters

Looking back, I realize they lived like frontiersmen. A squirrel-hunting boy who skirted their wooded encampment, I considered them bums. Looking back that seems harsh. Down on their luck some would say. Poor decision-makers others might say.

Column: Can mom be a hero?

Call her by any name: Mother, Mom, Mommy. Can she be a hero? Perhaps someone fulfilled the role of Mother in your life other than your birth mother. Can that person be a hero? Perhaps it was your grandmother or an adopted mom or your dad who fulfilled the role of mother. Is that your hero?
