My Brain on NASCAR - Oct. 13, 2017

It's October, and only seven races remain in NASCAR's playoffs. (On a side note, I'm still stymied regarding the reason why NASCAR changed the name of its post-season competition. The Chase was a pretty cool moniker, once you got used to it. The Playoffs, well, that name is just done to death.)

Distracting ourselves to death

WASHINGTON -- When President Trump said a few days ago that now isn't the time for a debate about gun control, presumably he meant that we should respect a decent interval of time for mourning after the Las Vegas shooting before launching into a political discussion that historically has led nowhere.

Join the team for child car safety

Our children are the most precious parts of our lives. My own kids mean the world to me, and not too long ago I was blessed with one of the most important titles I've ever had: "Granddaddy!" With this joy of children in mind, I'd like to steal the spotlight of your family dinner conversation tonight and ask you to discuss the topic of child vehicle safety. It's imperative that everyone visit and re-visit this topic, as technology, travel, recreation, and materials change and advance with every breakthrough and discovery. To start off, I'd like to ...

I think not…

Most of us awoke Monday morning to the horrific news coming out of Las Vegas of a lone gunman killing 59 people at a country music concert Sunday night. The incredibly sad and tragic event continues to dominate our conversations and the news. How could it not? If it hasn't affected you directly, surely it has indirectly, moving anyone with a heartbeat in a deeply emotional way. We have heard story after story of people dying in their loved one's arms; friends saving friends as they ran for cover from the spray of bullets; strangers driving as many ...

The people of the mills

In his book "The Most They Ever Had," the Southern writer and Pulitzer Prize winner Rick Bragg writes, "As a boy, I was a little afraid of the people of the mills. They had the look of a people who had not lived as much as endured it, as if they had walked out of a fire."

Stranger than strange

WASHINGTON -- The political resurrection of Alabama's Roy Moore -- the Moses of the South -- and the mortal end of Hugh Hefner are not entirely unrelated.

Good journalism is real

Fake news. It's a phrase that became the most memorable takeaway from Election 2016 and the political hangover that still resonates today. It should come as no surprise that Oxford Dictionaries proclaimed the 2016 word of the year to be "post-truth," an appropriate adjective for an era in which some news consumers are less concerned with whether or not something is true than they are with how it makes them feel.

Henry P. Kendall, collector

Along Camden's eastern border flows Little Pine Tree Creek. A textile mill and lake named Wateree had been located on that creek since 1899. In 1916, Henry P. Kendall, an industrialist from Massachusetts, purchased this mill and thereafter it became known as the Kendall Mill and lake. He purchased a home in Camden called the Sycamores in 1924 and lived there for 35 years until his death in 1959.
