Fear thee well to 2016

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- As usual, the year's end brings reflections and ruminations on what was and what is to be. This time around, however, it feels as though an era is coming to an end.

Reflections

While everybody is at watch night service on Saturday night, I will probably be eating sushi with my boyfriend as I prepare for the ball to drop. Does this make me a heathen? I will go to watch night someday (I have not been in years), but not this weekend.

Do not paint a picture of perfection

One of my best friends graduated from Francis Marion University on Saturday. She is the last one in our small group to graduate. We are all FMU alumni. When we first entered Francis Marion we swore we were all going to be class of 2016. As I have a cocky moment and brush this dirt off my shoulder, we did it!!

My Saturday rarely goes as planned

My weekends have been free as of late, and I have enjoyed them. For some odd reason though, my body wakes up at the same time every day. If I go to bed at 2 a.m. on a Saturday morning, I will wake up the next morning at 7 a.m. like I would during the work week.

Trump, the movie

WASHINGTON -- In the Trump movie now playing in the American theater, connecting all the dots requires the artistry of a mapmaker and the insight of a psychic.

Saving S.C.'s natural treasures: the Edisto River

Recently, I was invited to speak to the Friends of the Edisto and I met Hugo Krispyn who lives on the headwaters of the North Fork of the Edisto. He wrote this about the dangers facing the Edisto and other S.C. rivers.

Fire follows drought

Kershaw County is currently 6-8 inches behind the average rainfall for the year. The rest of the state, for the most part, is experiencing the same or worse conditions. Extended periods of dry weather continually make more forest fuels available to be burned. For example, a fallen log or large limb would typically not be much of a concern during a prescribed burn or when fighting a wildfire. However, these larger fuels have had ample time to dry to a point where they will readily ignite. As you can imagine this makes controlling fires much more difficult as fires will ...

No tears for Fidel

WASHINGTON -- Sometimes history doesn't have to wait to judge -- and when it comes to dictators, even dead ones, we shouldn't either.

Garbage on television

How are cable companies maintaining stability in this present day? I am curious because a few of my friends from college and even the ones back in Summerville barely watch television. They watch television on their phones with apps like Netflix and Hulu.

Some thoughts on the "biased media"

As we dig out from the aftermath of a bizarre election season, I have noticed the screaming, gloating and finger pointing never ends. One continuing rant, common from all sides, is this vilification of "the media." The brainwashed, navel gazing, commie pinko liberal media doesn't tell you this. The goose stepping, rabble rousing right wing media doesn't tell you that. The media is biased this that and the other.
