Column: Muddy jeans

Back in the early spring, Tink had spent several days of hard labor cutting up fallen trees and piling limbs into six bunches. Alternate bouts of rain, droughts, and ice have taken their toll on our family of trees. It's a continuous clean-up on the Rondarosa.

Column: The love that built us

She was ready. She was not afraid. She spoke not of the fear of death, but of the glorious anticipation of eternal life. Her assurance, her faith brought us great peace in her final days. The long goodbye linking nearly 10 years was over. My mother's battle with Alzheimer's Disease came to an end on April 13. For a minute, I imagined the amyloid plaques cheering in victory, boasting over yet another one of their victims in this sinister illness. But quickly, I switch back to what is real. Alzheimer's is not the winner. Mother of four ...

Column: Paul Ryan’s failed exorcism

WASHINGTON -- Given the cornucopia of issues Americans have to select from each day, the recent firing and rehiring of the House of Representatives' chaplain may not have bestirred many to form an opinion.

Column: A forever moment

(I wrote this column, "Reflections from the long black wall," nearly 20 years ago, shortly after I visited the Vietnam War Memorial in Washington, D.C. I believe what I had to say then remains true today. That is, one cannot visit it without being profoundly moved. With The Wall That Heals replica of the memorial coming to Camden this week, I hope everyone will take a moment to go pay your respects. Trust me; you will be moved in ways you cannot begin to imagine.)

Column: The old three-seater

On the road again, Augusta, Ga. While giving a talk on Georgialina, A Southland As We Knew It, my book about the past and how life has surely changed, outhouses came up and a fellow asked if I knew where any stood.

And just two weeks ago, I came across a three-seater. While its exterior suffered exposure, the parts that count, all ...

Column: When Dr. George Reynolds called

George Reynolds was born in Ireland in 1803. While on a sea voyage in 1820, he was shipwrecked near Cape Hatteras. He survived and made his way to the home of Joshua Reynolds, his uncle in Camden.

Column: The Wall That Heals comes to Camden

A black 18-wheeler will soon roll into town with an escort. On the trailer's front end are the words "The War and the Wall," on its back end, "The Wall That Heals." Along the wall's route, those words and much more cause adults and kids to stand at attention.

Column: Oh, just stop already!

After reading this column, some of you who only tolerated me before will probably hate me now. Still, I've got to get what I have to say off my chest. I'm not so egotistical to believe that what I'm going to say will change Kershaw County for the better ... but one can hope?

Column: Theta Tau’s indecent expose

PAWLEYS ISLAND, S.C. -- Courage isn't required to condemn the Syracuse University chapter of the Theta Tau fraternity for simulating a sexual assault on a disabled student.

Column: Moment of Nature - April 27, 2018

For many, the allure of warm weather and blooming plants stirs us to be outside and get our hands in the dirt. If you haven't gotten outside yet to do your spring cleaning, sprucing and planting, let me offer some tips to ensure your trees provide you with decades of enjoyment.
