Column: Celebrating outstanding women

March is Women's History Month. As announced by the National Women's History Project, the theme for 2018 is Nevertheless She Persisted. The phrase originated in February 2017 when Senator Elizabeth Warren was silenced during Jeff Sessions' attorney general confirmation hearing. As Senator Warren was reading a letter, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reprimanded her and stated that her speech violated Senate Rule No. 19. Later, when referring to the incident, Senator McConnell said Senator Warren "appeared to violate the rule." He stated, "She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted."

Column: A longing for pine pollen

Cold weather? Stay up North. My dash says it's 48 degrees as I drive by a swamp, yet singing frogs drown out my heater fan. They must be pleading for warm weather to arrive. Well, let me tell you, warm weather can't get here fast enough. Just the other night, I told a lady I couldn't wait to see daffodils and pine pollen. Yes, pine pollen. The color of spring is gold. Bring on daffodils and bring on yellow dust storms, sure signs winter is loosening its grip on the land.

Column: For the record

When I was a child, from the time I was old enough to sit on the floor and play with my toes until far past the time I put on my first coat of mascara, I have loved records.

Column: I'm not going to remember...

Of the 10 leading causes of death in America, there is only one disease that cannot be prevented, slowed or cured. This one disease has already affected 5.5 million people and by 2050, this number could rise to 16 million. Every 66 seconds, this one disease takes up residence in another person. And since the year 2000, the mortality of this one disease has increased by 89 percent. More than 15 million Americans provide unpaid care for a loved one suffering from this one disease and like so many of my generation, I was once part of that large ...

Column: When local business thrives, so does community

If you've got shopping to do, the national "big-box" and e-commerce retailers can seem like an appealing option. They're often located close to the interstate. With huge advertising budgets, they bombard us with tantalizing deals and "doorbuster specials."

Perhaps to some, it is an unlikely friendship but to me it is one I treasure. Nothing pleases me more than the moments of conversation I spend with One Arm, who lives up the road a bit.

Column: A miracle on I-20

Benelli, a red Australian Shepherd, and her owner, Athena Hinkle, from Wilmington, N.C., were traveling on I-20 through Kershaw County on Jan. 12 on their way to visit family in Alabama. It was dark and raining outside but Hinkle felt safe as she drove with Benelli. She and Benelli have a special bond that was formed in 2016 when Benelli was a small pup and still with her litter. That bond was cemented when Hinkle's father gifted her with Benelli for Christmas that same year. Her last Christmas with her father. He suffered a fatal heart attack that ...
