Rich: Christmas on the Mississippi

Several years ago, I was hired to speak on a few occasions for riverboat cruises on the Mississippi. Paddle boats hearkening back to the days of Mark Twain moved lazily yet with determined purpose through the waters of my favorite large river.

Richardson: Where the real American Christmas began

We Southerners know how to party. We don't need much of an excuse to throw a rollicking get-together either. One of the earliest party spots in Camden was Dinkins Tavern which stood across from Blue House on lower Broad Street. Mrs. Dinkins was a renowned party hostess who was able to pull together a ball or tea party on a day's notice. Music for dancing and good food attracted Camden's town folks to Dinkins year round. Since the settlement period of America we have been partying at Christmas and we made the Christmas celebration last for days ...

Noble: Ban the Presbyterians

There is a dangerous, revolutionary group which has a long history of violence and is driven by a fanatical religious belief they were chosen by God. They have infiltrated our state and country and are a threat to our way of life and our very existence. We must, at a minimum, make those who are here register, establish surveillance on their places of worship and keep others from coming to our country.

Morgan: Beyond 2015

A lot of people who write columns use the last one of the year to talk about the "year that was." As I have been reflecting on the past 12 months, it occurred to me 2015 was an extremely important year in terms of public education in South Carolina. Events which have unfolded during the past year and how they play out in 2016 will set the stage for how education in our state will look for years to come.

Cahn: TIME makes best choice in Merkel

I'm one of those people who loves TIME magazine's idea of picking a person (or thing) of the year. Sometimes, the editors' choices have been a bit odd such as 1982 when they chose the personal computer or 2006 when the choice was "You." There have been years when the choices have reflected pure evil -- Hitler in 1938, Stalin the next year and in 1942 and the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979.

Parker: Waging war outside the box

WASHINGTON -- Americans looking for a Snuggy Bear and a blankey to ease their anxieties about the Islamic State will have to become more comfortable with ambiguity and uncertainty.

Joseph: Lessons on terror from Buddy the Elf

Lately, I've hesitated to turn on my television for fear of being pelted with disturbing news of further terrorist acts across the globe. I have to believe many share these same propensities. It's hard to ignore the barbaric cowards responsible for spreading these heinous acts, their terror over much of our world. We hear journalists, politicians, government leaders speak words like, "these are uneasy times" or "we live in a different world now."
