World War II in Camden

of another world war. The First Army held their second 1941 field maneuvers in Camden. Their first attempt to prepare the Army for the possibility of war was a dismal failure in the summer of 1940. The Army and the National Guard held those maneuvers with outdated equipment and troops who had outdated training. The world had changed since the days of World War I and the Army had been downsized during the 1920s and 1930s. Correspondents who covered the first maneuvers reported to a shocked American nation that the National Guard and the Army were woefully unprepared to defend ...

Gator

A while back, we were in Canada for a movie that was filming there. One night, the shooting lasted until late so it was about midnight when we got back to the room. Trying to key down from the day, I started surfing the channels when, suddenly, I squealed with delight.

Tracking trends, identifying problems

This past Thursday afternoon I met with my team of supervisors to review the 2016 Statistical Report for the department. This is an annual occurrence that allows us to identify trends in our community and tackle any problems head-on. We began by examining the number and types of criminal offenses reported within the city, which totaled 3,039. This number is only of incidents reported to our agency and does not indicate the number of people arrested or the number of actual crimes committed, as some reported incidents turn out to be something other than criminal. This total number also ...

Inside the South Carolina mind

In 1929, Gaffney, S.C., native W.J. Cash wrote his seminal book "The Mind of the South." Every subsequent attempt to understand the mind (and soul) of the South necessarily starts with this book. It has been so since it was written and will probably continue to be so for generations to come. It is that good.

Count Gorsuch

WASHINGTON -- To review the left's reaction to Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch is to infer he's the spawn of Dracula -- a cruel and bloodless beast who shrinks from the light and plays havoc with history.

The bi-vocational preacher

In the months before we married, I sought to show Tink the Southern mountains of my raising. On a colorful autumn afternoon, I was driving him around the curvy backroads and pointing out spots of various interest such as family farms, cemeteries and birthplaces. I turned off the "blacktop" onto a graveled dirt drive.

Across Governor Richard I. Manning’s Desk

As one of his more obscure and less publicized duties, Governor Richard I. Manning served ex officio as a member of the Board of Trustees of the S.C. College from 1824-26. Although an obscure duty, his service would have a far-reaching influence on the Library of the S.C. College and the scholarly communities of the state and nation.

Taking immigration personally

I take the new administration's current immigration policy very personally because it seems to be an attempt to keep people of a particular religion out of our country. I was born, raised and culturally identify myself as Jewish. I was also taught to respect all religions.
