Walker: For the love of chickens

A 16-pound chicken named Portly can make a grown woman smile, especially if the woman happens to be known as "The Dragon Lady." Earlier this month, I visited the home of Vickie (Karesh) Dawson, aka The Dragon Lady, just north of Camden in the country. I had heard lots of stories about Vickie, and quite frankly, her nickname of "The Dragon Lady" intimidated me a little. What I discovered is a lady with a vibrant passion for animals and life.

Cahn: The president’s responsibility

If Kathleen Parker and my columns today appear to echo each other somewhat, it is not intentional, although I'm happy to agree with her on the issue of President Barack Obama's naming of a replacement for late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.

Parker: What would Scalia do?

WASHINGTON -- As Republican presidential candidates invoke Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia's legacy, all insisting his suddenly vacant seat shouldn't be filled until a new president is in place, it is helpful to ask: What would Scalia do?

Richardson: The Revolutionary War on Campbell Street

Campbell Street's early history is significant. The original town lots of Camden were laid out on a grid sometime before 1774, when the earliest known plan was drawn. On the 1774 plan, Campbell Street south of York Street was one of the original streets. During the Revolutionary War, the British built the western defenses of Camden on Campbell Street. Two Revolutionary War redoubts were located on Campbell Street -- one in the middle of the street south of Bull Street and one on what is now residential land between King and Calhoun streets, just on the eastern edge of Campbell ...

Rich: Orphaned later in life

No one, regardless of how old we are, likes to be an orphan. It feels oddly like a ship which has been securely moored in a harbor but then is set free to drift without anchor. There is even a point when you feel you are without rudder.

Morgan: Gov. Haley’s education proposals

A few weeks back, superintendents in our state were invited by Gov. Nikki Haley to hear a briefing on her education budget initiatives, which she will ask the General Assembly to consider during its current session. Over the past couple of years, Gov. Haley has taken an increasingly "hands-on" approach to education. This is certainly a positive change from her predecessor.
