Cahn: Crescent City, here I come!

Well, it's happening. That trip to New Orleans I've always wanted to take -- the one I mentioned in a column a while back? I'm actually going.

Rich: Mama B -- a most memorable mother

It was at lunch after a morning revival service last summer when a few of us sat around, munching on Southern casseroles and talking about one of the most memorable mothers any of us had ever known.

Tucker: ‘Murses’ not same as women’s handbags

I read recently purses for men -- "manbags," or "murses," as they've been humorously termed in the past -- are becoming hot sellers.

Parker: Matters of perception

WASHINGTON -- Comments about recent events in Baltimore following the death of Freddie Gray provide a glimpse at perhaps one of our greatest challenges -- perception.

Phillips: Community service

There are a great many people around here, and indeed the world over, who genuinely care about their communities and their neighbors and do whatever they can to make their community and neighborhood a better place to live and work. We have numerous people like those right here in Kershaw County, many of whom are perfectly content to remain behind the scenes and quietly do good work not for the glory or accolades, but rather for the satisfaction they feel knowing they're making a difference.

Joseph: The heart knows

I've been a parent for just shy of 21 years. I only blinked once, OK, maybe twice in that time, but still proceeded to fast-forward 20 years and at breakneck speed. I never can find that pesky "pause" button and, believe me, I've tried.

Parker: Wife of the party

WASHINGTON -- The life of the wife of a presidential candidate can sometimes be like the government. Taxing.

Tatum: The world keeps turning

If I were a bit more of a religious man, I might be seriously worrying about the end of the world here.

Cahn: What now, Baltimore?

Six Baltimore, Md., police officers are facing charges in the death of Freddie Gray, an African-American resident who died a week after suffering a spinal cord injury while being arrested April 12.

Historical Society Column - May 4, 2015

When the 15th and 17th Corps of Sherman's Army entered Kershaw District on February 23, 1865, at Peay's Ferry on the Wateree River west of Liberty Hill, then crossed the district in three days, and were poised to exit it on Lynches River at Young's Bridge, Tillers Ferry and Kelly's Bridge, locally the war was all but over.

Rich: Tink and the chainsaw

My husband is like a relentless teenager. When he wants something, he persists until it's easier for me to say "yes" just to get him out of my hair.

Tucker: The raw boys of summer

Baseball and cursing have been a pair since the first days of the game.

Parker: Fear of free speech

WASHINGTON -- True words are often said in jest, it has long been said. But a harsher idiom has been taking shape in recent years: Jest is becoming the only way to express truth.

Phillips: Protesters versus those who riot

I like to write my weekly column on humorous topics when possible. During my months here, I've managed to sprinkle in some stories of goofy things that have happened in my life and there are more I would love to convey to you. I'm probably not as funny as I sometimes think I am, but those are still the kinds of musings I prefer.

Parker: The mourning after

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- By all appearances Friday morning, as thousands lined the street waiting (and wilting) for hours in 90-degree heat to enter the funeral arena where President Obama was to deliver a eulogy for state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, racial unity seemed a comfortable fact of life.

Phillips: Tend to your own issues

Even though it's not an election year, in many ways it's always an election year for some politicians. Given the fact they are "hired" and employed by the voting public, their lives are a nearly constant campaign for re-election. I can understand that. They have cushy jobs they want to keep for many years to come.

Tatum: Getting our just desserts

When I was a wise-elbowed, wet nosed kid barely out of college, a lot of people used to annoy me with questions about what I wanted to do for a living.

Parker: Waiting for Obama

(Kathleen Parker wrote this column in advance of President Barack Obama's appearance in Charleston for State Sen. Clementa Pinckney's funeral.)

Cahn: Getting executive sessions right

Listen up, local public bodies: the S.C. Supreme Court recently ruled in a North Augusta case which I hope will make clearer -- if not settle once and for all -- how you enter executive sessions.

Rich: A father to remember

It happens all the time. Tink will meet someone new around where we live and, invariably, that person will mention my daddy.

Gilland: The Snake Tree (Part 2)

(In last month's column, Camden Urban Forester Liz Gilland started a story about a snake in a tree in a city right of way. When she left off, Gilland had called a wildlife trapping company -- which didn't handle snakes -- and naturalist Austin Jenkins, who suggested it was best to leave the snake alone.)
