Parker: Trump’s pivot to Damascus

WASHINGTON -- If you turned on cable TV news Monday, chances are good you caught Corey Lewandowski fibbing, saying he doesn't have a clue why Donald Trump fired him as his campaign manager.

Moment of Nature - June 24, 2016

One of the many challenges in community tree management is balancing the need for economic development with the desire to retain trees. Conserving trees within a development project is often at odds due to limited space and all of the many facets of the construction process.

Noble: Emanuel -- The end of the beginning

In the early days of World War II, the British, standing nearly alone, suffered a number of huge defeats. And then in November 1942, they won a major victory defeating Gen. Rommel's forces in North Africa. In reporting this victory to the House of Commons, Prime Minister Winston Churchill said, "Now this is not the end. It is not even the beginning of the end. But it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning."

Tatum: The more things change

I was reading something the other day about yet another internet scam thing -- it even has a catchy, groovy name. All the young, in-the-know hipsters call it "catfishing."

WASHINGTON -- The arguments for and against gun control are so familiar by now, we might as well hit replay and skip the debate.

Rich: Father’s Day 2016

Behind the little house in which I spent a happy childhood, where I toted books from one room to another, where I knelt by my bed nightly to pray, where homemade biscuits buttered and sprinkled with sugar were a favorite treat, is a little shed which, to the outside world, is noted for its ugliness.

Morgan: Seniors remember

Throughout the school year, I meet with student government leaders from our three high schools. At the last meeting, I ask the seniors in the group to talk about their plans, their favorite teachers and memories from their school careers. I'm always both touched and inspired by what they say. I think what these young people shared with me is worth sharing with the entire community.

Cahn: Net neutrality should be here to stay

The good news came Monday: a federal appeals court upheld the U.S. Federal Communication Commission's (FCC) "Net neutrality" rules. On a 2-1 favorable rating, with one judge only issuing a partial dissent, the appeals court's decision primarily dealt with the FCC's reclassification of broadband internet service as a common carrier -- a utility -- just like electric power.

Richardson: Staffordshire in Camden!

I grew up on James Island in the 1960s before the rampant development took over Charleston and the Sea Islands. James Island was a place of vast truck farms and woods, sweeping marshes and tidal creeks. But times were changing, as new suburban developments were planned for the wide open fields and the truck farming businesses decreased. Within my memory, new homes were built where we used to gather tomatoes from the fields after the tomato pickers left. Our new house was built next to a field which still sprouted African field peas year after year. These old agricultural fields ...

Noble: People to legislature -- How long?

In 1993, Bill Clinton became president of the United States for the first time. The movie "Unforgiven" won the Oscar for the Best Picture of the Year. A 51-day stand-off at the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas, ended with a fire which killed 76 people, including David Koresh. The Unabomber's first bomb injured computer scientist David Gelernter at Yale University. The first version of Microsoft's Windows NT operating system was released. Nelson Mandela and Frederik Willem de Klerk won the Nobel Peace Prize. "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston was the No. 1 song.
