Telling a tragedy in the community

I have said before -- in fact, not that long ago -- that covering tragedies is no fun. This is especially true when the tragedy takes place where you live, or at least close by. When you can say that you either know the people involved, or are friends of their friends, it hits you even harder.

Bubba Bobby Jindal waves war flag

WASHINGTON -- This town can get pretty wound up when a politician misbehaves.

Accepting the hand we’re dealt

I have a friend who says he's stopped asking people how they're feeling.

Springing into organization

I recently read an article online about ways to get your wardrobe ready for spring and the one thing it encouraged, above everything else, was organization. It suggested that the time between the end of winter and the beginning of spring was a very important time to evaluate what you need and what you don't when it comes to clothing.

Make love not war

WASHINGTON -- We've heard much about the Republican war on women. Exhaustingly.

12 candidates, 12 ideas

In the 2014 election, the post of State Superintendent of Education is open. The incumbent Mick Zais is not running again. By my count, to date there are 12 people that are announced candidates -- 10 Republicans and two Democrats.

A somber, but important anniversary

Of all the hundreds of stories I have written for the C-I, perhaps the most gratifying and the most tragic was "Death of a Deputy," a five-part series we published in 2009.

Keeping the dream alive

By chance, we happened upon him in a small gift shop. The clerk recognizing me laughed and said, "What a coincidence! She just bought a copy of your book!" She gestured toward a small woman browsing through a group of men's sweaters.

Should S.C. pay for surveillance?

Gov. Nikki Haley's executive budget grabbed a few headlines for its items on education, transportation and Medicaid waiver programs. One component of the budget was almost completely ignored, however, and it shouldn't be. The governor's proposed spending plan includes $8.5 million in total funds -- $5.3 million from the federal government -- for a Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Fusion Center.

Few today remember The Orangeburg Massacre

If you're now a 60-year-old native South Carolinian, you're unlikely to have any personal memory of the events known as the Orangeburg Massacre. You would have been 14 when it happened on Feb. 8, 1968 -- two years before the deaths of four white students at Kent State University in Ohio.

The Mills Courthouse -- not!

Long before I came to work in Camden, my husband and I would drive up here from Sumter to have a lunch date some Saturdays. As we passed the Robert Mills Courthouse, the historic preservationist part of me would smile in satisfaction that the people of Camden preserved this landmark. Sumter's oldest courthouse, which Mills modified, was torn down in the name of "progress" years ago -- and they built a Maxway in its place! Really!

Republicans getting to yes

WASHINGTON -- Republicans have excelled at concealing their brilliance in recent years and Democrats have exalted in their own good fortune.

Do they really mean it?

Gentlemen, start your engines! It's NASCAR season again, with the Daytona 500 coming up Sunday. There's always a high amount of excitement in the air this time of year, as everyone starts the season with the same record and number of points -- zeros all across the board.

Dreams of the luge and bobsled

If you've always harbored a desire to be an Olympic athlete but you have a hard time walking and chewing gum at the same time, I have two words for you:

“Robert Mills: Designs for Democracy”

Robert Mills was the first American born and trained architect. He called himself "Robert Mills, Architect of Public Buildings." Indeed, Mills established a new scale and standard for public buildings in Washington, D. C. when he designed the Treasury Building, the Patent Office, and the General Post Office in the 1830s and early 1840s. In other parts of the country, Mills designed buildings that were sensitive to regional values and local architectural traditions. Always his attention was on permanency and fireproofing for his public buildings.

I don’t ride anything that can make its own decisions

Camden is, without a doubt, a horse town. Kershaw County is a horse county and the love for horses extends throughout this great area of South Carolina. However, it stops at my door.

My preperation for Easter

Easter is a holiday of two extremes. On one side is a covert celebration of springtime with cute bunnies and pretty dresses and Easter egg hunts and chicks and flowers and lambs. On the other is a lamb being slaughtered on Passover. There is a bloodstained cross on which a Jewish man is dying who proclaimed that he was the Son of God, and that he had to be killed so that God's wrath against my sins could be carried out not against me but against him.

Erasing the race card

A scorned South Carolina hero

April 11, 2014 was a very important day in the history of South Carolina. Few people noticed that anything much happened – but I would argue that this was the day we as a state did two very important things.

The Colbert Report

WASHINGTON -- In selecting Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman as host of the "Late Show," CBS has waged war on America's heartland -- or so proclaims that Palm Beach font of heartland mirth, Rush Limbaugh.

Diamonds are the ‘better gang’ now

Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes

Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.

Beautiful in a different way

She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.
