Cahn: Mid-life romance in the digital age

It is very, very weird to be 51 and single in the second decade of the 21st century.

Parker: Hillary’s viral nightmare

WASHINGTON -- You could say it all depends on how you define "lie." Or, perhaps, it's hell to have a public record.

Richardson: The view from here

In working on the next changing exhibit at the archives, I have had to research the Battle of Hobkirk Hill pretty extensively. I am the first one to admit I never specifically studied the Revolutionary War or the Civil War, though there were specialized courses on them in graduate school. It just wasn't "my thing." But upon learning the principal player in the next exhibit, John Bartlam, was reported by the South Carolina militia after the Revolution as a Loyalist who "died" before 1783, I had to track that part of his story down.

Noble: ‘Understanding each other’s history’

Last week in Charleston, a large mural of Rev. Clementa Pinckney was unveiled. It was done by 28-year-old Columbia artist Tripp Barnes. It is big and colorful and covers the whole outside wall of a building on St. Phillips Street, a few blocks from my house and from Emanuel AME Church.

Rampell: She saw something -- and said something

WASHINGTON -- Last week, a 40-year-old man -- with dark, curly hair, olive skin and an exotic foreign accent -- boarded a plane. It was to make an uneventful hop from Philadelphia to nearby Syracuse.

Rich: The boy in overalls

The other day I had something on my mind, a situation we had just encountered with someone we had sought to help.

Morgan: It’s not 1970 anymore

Shortly after I presented a proposed budget to the school board in April, a community member sent me a graph developed by the Cato Institute, an inside the D.C. Beltway think tank. The graph shows the huge increase in education spending since 1970 as compared to significantly lower increases in test scores during the same period. I have seen this graph on multiple occasions during the past several years, and it's definitely a perennial with social media types.

Cahn: This isn’t your father’s CLC

Below on the left, you'll find a letter to the editor about a majority of the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees' voting to keep Bethune and Mt. Pisgah elementary schools open.

Parker: Rules are for breaking

WASHINGTON -- It should be obvious to all by now Donald Trump knows nothing of what he speaks. His disastrous economic ideas are but the latest in a litany of nonsensical proposals.

Joseph: Be proud, you’ve earned it

My oldest son graduated from college six days ago and it has started me thinking about the emotional roller coaster ride I've been on this last month. Perhaps a pinball machine is a better option to describe my sensitive state lately as I quickly move from emotion to emotion. Life's milestones, especially when they belong to your children, tend to have a way of putting parents in that ugly cry-face, choked-up mode.

Noble: Babies, marriage and family in S.C.

Tackling "big issues" is tough. It's far easier for policy makers and politicians to make a speech or issue a press release with a few snappy phrases and then claim they are "doing something."

Tatum: How could Oscar possibly snub this?

Ray Davies once said, "Everybody's a dreamer, everybody's a star, and everyone is in movies, it doesn't matter who you are."

Parker: Farewell, grand old party

WASHINGTON -- It wasn't precisely an act of moral courage, but House Speaker Paul Ryan's comment that he's not ready to support presumptive presidential nominee Donald Trump was at least ... something.

Rich: Mother’s Day 2016

There isn't a day that passes that I don't remember Mama. Many of the times she crosses my mind, I am doing something she taught me how to do.
