The pieces of life’s puzzle

This happened years ago. Mama was alive then, so it's been seven or eight years. I hadn't thought about in almost that many years but when it came to mind the other day, I took to studying on it and how the circumstances and opportunities of life's journey can be so fascinating.

Musings from election night 2014

KershawHealth celebrates community

KershawHealth recently premiered "What Matters Most," our newest marketing campaign and a tribute to the relationships we have formed throughout Kershaw County. It was extremely gratifying to see nearly 300 people gather at the Little Theatre in Camden for the red carpet premiere of the commercials and the accompanying feature video. It was equally exciting to see folks from all across the county and all walks of life united by the chance to see their community celebrated.

Lena Dunham’s bare, naked truth

WASHINGTON -- Lena Dunham, creator of the sensational HBO series "Girls" -- and now the object of overwrought child abuse accusations by boys on the right -- seems the perfect antidote to election fatigue.

Support your local merchants

I generally agree with the phrase "shop local," and I do so whenever possible. In a worldwide economy, especially in the modern world of online shopping, nearly anything can be purchased from anywhere and delivered right to your door.

What is The ALPHA Center?

So many people have told me that they don't know what The ALPHA Center, is that I decided to write a column about it. The ALPHA Center, an acronym for "All Life's Problems Have Answers," offers an important response to local citizens wrestling with substance abuse; addictions to alcohol, drugs and tobacco; anger management problems; and a familiar raft of behavioral issues.

A fall full of fungi

My students often ask me if the items we find in the woods are edible. I answer in the affirmative, explaining that anything they can fit down their esophagus is edible. The question is whether the item of interest will kill you. I get asked this a lot about mushrooms. Members of this kingdom are especially difficult to identify, and for every safe species, there is another, almost identical species that could be deadly. And so it is my standard practice to avoid consumption of any mushroom I find outside of the supermarket shelf.

WASHINGTON -- Thank you, Kaci Hickox.

Eureka!

The best my body has felt in a long time was last summer when I gave being vegetarian a try. I know that the foods a person eats play a major role in the state of his or her health, but I had no idea that altering my diet would dramatically change how I slept and how much energy I had. It even cut out my occasional night sweats.

The obituary call tree

Yes, I know that I am, occasionally, prone to embellishment. But trust me when I say this is the law and the gospel: I have a long-time friend who only calls me when someone dies. Most times, I know the person but sometimes I don't have a clue the person ever existed.

A mysterious season, revisited

(With focus on this year's election coverage, I'm giving myself a break from this week's column. However, here's a somewhat Halloween-related column from 2010 I hope you'll enjoy again.)

Phillips: Using technology for good

In the past two weeks, I have written, respectively, about some of the wonderful things we have here in Kershaw County and how often those things get taken for granted. Two weeks back, my focus was on the artistic and cultural offerings we have, along with recreation facilities and programs for participants of nearly any age and the economic boost that gives us when players and teams from out of town converge on us for sports tournaments, equine events and much more.

Morgan: The Abbeville decision

While I was taking a finance class as part of my doctoral program in Virginia in the early 1990s, one of the topics we discussed was a lawsuit that had been filed in South Carolina, now called the Abbeville case, which challenged South Carolina's structure for funding public education. Life takes funny turns. Here I am 21 years later in South Carolina when the case is finally settled.
