Parker: Bonfire of the vulgarities

WASHINGTON -- At first it seemed too weirdly awful to be true, but there she was: Sarah Palin standing next to Donald Trump last Tuesday and endorsing him for president.

Walker: Paul Anderson a gentle giant at the CTC

Driving into the Camden Training Center on Chestnut Street in Camden felt like the first day of school when you know no one and know nothing about the class, the school or the teacher. As many of you know from my previous columns, I'm a dog person. I know them, love them and can read them from a distance. A horse? Well, that's a whole different story. I can barely find the barn, let alone identify a breed of horse. So, on this brisk day in January, I brushed off my nerves and proceeded on the adventure to ...

Cahn: ‘Responsible journalism’ bill license to censor

Every now and then, some elected official who feels they've been wronged by the press stands up, shakes their fists and calls for journalists to be licensed. Perhaps they're upset with the "liberal" (or, occasionally, "conservative") slant of their boss' editorials.

Gilland: Tree City USA -- what does it mean?

Last month, S.C. Forestry Commission (SCFC) Pee Dee Region Urban Forester Lois Edwardspresented our Tree City USA Award to Camden City Council.

Tree City USA is a national program under the auspices of The Arbor Day Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters and provides the framework for community forestry management of public trees in cities and towns across America.

Parker: Nikki Haley’s righteous gamble

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- By broad consensus, the winner of Thursday night's GOP debate was Donald Trump, followed by Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, with most of the post-game commentary focused on "the fight" between Cruz and Trump.

Rich: The yarns of life

Something the other day took me back to a time, many years ago, when I followed the tight, winding roads of the mountains to present myself at the door of my maternal grandmother's house.

Morgan: From NCLB to ESSA

After several years of what has become typical partisan haggling, Congress has finally reworked its foundation education legislation. "No Child Left Behind" (NCLB) has been replaced by the "Every Student Succeeds Act" (ESSA). NCLB, which basically reduced educational accountability to standardized test results, had pretty much overstayed its welcome. The law's rigid "beat'em with a two-by-four" approach to educational improvement ended up creating more confusion and conflict than promoting actual progress.

Cahn: What I’d do with $1.5 billion

Parker: Not dead yet

WASHINGTON -- Reports of Jeb Bush's political death may be greatly exaggerated. Not only is Bush essentially locked in a statistical tie for second place in New Hampshire, depending on which poll you prefer, but he's enjoying the benefits of being largely ignored by the media.

Wilson: New year, old tricks from EPA

As we begin a new year, one would hope the Obama administration made a new year's resolution of allowing congress to do its job and not allowing unelected bureaucrats to regulate through administrative fiat. However, it seems this year will be full of even more federal overreach and this administration making up the rules as it goes.

Noble: The new S.C. -- who are these guys?

One of my favorite movies is the 1969 classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The ultra-cool Paul Newman and Robert Redford play small-time bank robbers in the turn of the century cowboy West who were relentlessly pursued by a posse of lawmen that followed them for months across mountains and deserts, to big cities and ultimately even to South America.
