Joseph: Resolutions

Several days prior to the New Year, a friend asked me what resolutions I had set for myself. I thought, "Did she say 'resolutions' or perhaps I didn't hear her correctly?" She definitely said "resolutions," yet I had none to reply with. I didn't have one measly surrender to give her. As a matter of fact, I didn't declare any New Year's resolutions last year, either. In truth, it has been at the least several years since I have proclaimed to the world the self-denials I would inflict upon myself in that given New Year. My ...

Noble: Saving lives, computers and guns

Back in the late 1990s, my company developed the first internet strategy for the Ministry of Health in Australia. In all honesty, we really didn't know much about what we were doing, but I learned one thing: with technology, the right incentives and political leadership, big changes are possible very quickly.

Tatum: 2015 was the year of...

At first glance, I would have probably gone with the most recent meme -- "2015: the year absolutely everyone was offended." After all, it seems you can't so much as yawn without having someone from the National Association of Terminally Boring Pinheads, or some such, planning a march in your front yard.

Rampell: Donald/Kanye 2020?

Rich: The great ones

In those days, I was too young to fully grasp the education I was receiving. That's typical of most teenagers I suppose. At the age of 19, insight, wisdom and knowledge rolled off me like a well cooked egg slides easily over Teflon but somewhere it deposited itself so it bubbled up later.

Teal: The story of ‘Asa Hartz’

Dr. Allen Stokes, the cataloger of the Yates Snowden papers at the South Caroliniana Library, called my attention to a March 7, 1927, letter in the collection from Thomas J. Kirkland. At some point before March 7, Yates Snowden, long time head of the History Department at the University of South Carolina, had received a copy of Historic Camden, Volume II written by Kirkland and Kennedy. Snowden reviewed this work in a letter to Kirkland.

Rampell: Clinton’s crackdown on tax inversion

WASHINGTON -- Last week, Hillary Clinton's campaign released an ambitious plan for curbing tax inversions. It's a good start, even if much more is needed.

Cahn: Crime reports can leave you in stitches

A week ago, I named first responders as my People of the Year for 2015. Included among them are our police department officers and sheriff's office deputies. In honoring them, I mentioned some of the things they do to help the community and the risks they take in keeping us safe here in Kershaw County.

Scully: What is the Chamber of Commerce?

Many people have no clear idea about the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce and Visitors' Center at the Mills Court House on Broad Street. It might be time to identify the Chamber and clarify its mission.

Noble: Smoking, Kids and the New Year

The two most often made (and broken) New Year's resolutions are to lose weight and to quit smoking. If you need any evidence of this, count how many ads you see on TV for weight loss and quit smoking products in all the football bowl games.

Tatum: New year’s excitement lite, reprise

It's been a long time since I have done any heavy duty partying on New Year's Eve. I probably haven't been to a New Year's Eve bacchanal in more than a decade or two and while I am still capable and willing to make really lousy decisions, I haven't done a blithering, whirly-eyed debauch-a-thon at New Years probably since my roaring 20s.
