Rich: It’s hard to quit your raising

Here, I'll announce something I've never admitted publicly. I love going barefooted. It's how I was raised.

Morgan: Forty years

At the end of the past school year, I finished 40 years of working in public education. To put this in perspective, Gerald Ford was president when I began my career as a middle school teacher and coach in 1975. That's seven presidents ago. This mostly makes me old. The 40-year milestone has caused me to do a lot of thinking about where public education has been and where it's going.

Cahn: Closer to closing the Lyon case

Eleven months ago, I wrote about what has long been considered a kidnapping case which has haunted me since just before my 10th birthday. More than 40 years ago, on March 25, 1975, two sisters disappeared from a mall near where I used to live in the Washington, D.C., suburbs of Montgomery County, Md.

Preserving Camden’s heritage in the era of the modern age

By 1963, discussion of founding a "Historic Camden Foundation" appeared on the minutes of the Historic Committee of the Chamber of Commerce. In 1967, committee member Richard Lloyd and his wife founded the Camden District Heritage Foundation to receive donations of historical property, historic relics and financial bequests to further the heritage preservation of Camden. In the long look back, Richard Lloyd invested not only his time and passion, but a great deal of money in preserving and promoting Camden's legacy for future generations.

Phillips: What’s your soundtrack?

Sometimes the inspiration for my weekly column comes from the strangest of places. Often, there's a hot news story, usually controversial, I feel like espousing my opinion about. That's not so strange. Other times, I think back to something which has happened in my life, hopefully funny, to share with you. That also is not particularly strange. But this week the idea came to me as I sat at home playing my guitar and trying to figure out some new songs I had never played before. None of them were really "new," but they were new to me.

Arrants: Finding nature anywhere

Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity to join a client kayaking down a creek on his property. As we slowly floated along the beautiful waterway, I couldn't help but remind him of just how fortunate he was to own several miles of such wonderful nature. He turned to me and commented on how cool it must be for me to be able to call it "my office." When I was heading out into the field the next morning, notebook and binoculars in hand, he called to me from across the road.

Sticker shock -- we all face it at one time or another. Whether it's the cost of a home, an automobile or even a stay in the hospital, it's easy to be taken aback by the prices we pay. In an effort to help patient consumers make better informed decisions about their own care, KershawHealth is participating in PricePoint, the South Carolina Hospital Association's (SCHA) new website designed to clarify hospital pricing in our state.

Cahn: ‘Hail to the R--’ er, what now?

The controversy about whether to rename the Washington, D.C., football team is not a new one. However, our controversy here in South Carolina regarding the Confederate battle flag, got me thinking about other symbols.
