Tucker: From the mailbag

• Mary Katherine entered the convent, and the Mother Superior told her, "Sister, this is a silent order. You are welcome to stay here as long as you like, but you may not speak until I direct you to do so."

Parker: Juicing the story

WASHINGTON -- As soon as the news broke Tuesday evening, anyone near a TV, radio or computer heard that three Muslim students were murdered near the University of North Carolina.

Phillips: Why, Brian, why?

I often write here about the news of the day, whether it is on a local level, statewide or beyond. There certainly is plenty of it, especially with so many news outlets on the internet and cable and satellite TV. Well, that may be a stretch sometimes, as many of the news outlets will report just about anything with little to no regard for the truth or whether a topic or event is indeed newsworthy.

Beckham: The local Valentine, Cupid

WWII brought about the greatest migration of U. S. citizens. Millions joined the Armed Forces and went to training facilities outside of their local area and many were transferred overseas, while the need for mass production moved countless citizens to new locales to find jobs in industry.

Joseph: Thank a teacher

At the close of this school year, I will have spent 16 consecutive years at Camden Elementary School, yet in four-months, I will no longer have children meandering through its halls. It will mark the end of countless bagged lunches, signed report cards, book bags and hours of recess. The time we spent there, though a mere singular season of our lives, was good to us and filled with remarkable memories of a myriad of field trips, assemblies and favorite teachers. And in my genuine reflections, what (or who) has made the most significant imprint on my mind? My thoughts ...

Arrants: Learning to fly

Leaving Kershaw County after living here for more than 25 years has brought a great deal of excitement about the wonderful road ahead and, as with times of change, a touch of nostalgia. I'm not nearly as prone to staring back at the past as I once was. I'd much rather focus on where I am and what lies ahead than sit around and wax nostalgically about high school days. I'm nothing like the bumpkin inside a tiny world I was then and I take a great deal of pride in that. I'd also like to ...

Gunn: LiveWell Kershaw

Partnerships are powerful, and I can think of few better examples than LiveWell Kershaw. This collaboration connects KershawHealth, the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina, the Community Medical Clinic of Kershaw County, Access Kershaw, and a host of other local agencies in an innovative initiative to make Kershaw County the healthiest county in South Carolina, and to become a model for other communities across South Carolina and the nation. It's a huge goal, but one worthy of the pursuit.

Parker: Let’s not talk

WASHINGTON -- I'm standing in the Starbucks line behind 10 other sleepyheads waiting to order my tall skinny cappuccino, otherwise known as a shot of coffee described as I wish it to be.

Wilson: Fighting back against food stamp fraud

Every day, in every area of our state, hardworking South Carolina taxpayers are being robbed. They are not held up at gunpoint and their homes are not burglarized. But, they are the victims of theft just the same. Criminals are stealing federal funds and using that money for their personal benefit. They are committing fraud against the food stamp program. In fact, they pocket more than $2 million of your tax dollars every year in South Carolina alone.

Cahn: ‘Madam Secretary’ is terrific TV

From 1999 to 2006, I tuned in to every episode of "The West Wing" starring Martin Sheen. It was one of the smartest shows I've ever watched with a superb cast and excellent writing. Like every television show, it had its ups and downs. Its detractors felt it was too idyllic and -- being an Aaron Sorkin product, like "The Newsroom" in more recent years -- too preachy.

Richardson: Spring fever brings summer bounty

The daffodils are nodding their pretty yellow heads all over town. To me, they are the harbingers of spring, blooming long before the weather is really warm. They give us hope the warm days really will return soon. In my yard, they pop up in the bed by my yard's Victorian cast iron fence -- in the bed I meant to transform into a perennial cottage garden wonderland. Twenty-one years ago, when we moved in, I dug a vegetable plot in the back yard and the long border bed out front. Back then, when I was doing historic preservation consulting ...

Sunshine Week: Emails are subject to FOIA

The controversy encircling former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her use of private email to conduct public business provides our latest example of government in the shadows, a situation we know well in South Carolina.
