Column: I'm not going to remember...

Of the 10 leading causes of death in America, there is only one disease that cannot be prevented, slowed or cured. This one disease has already affected 5.5 million people and by 2050, this number could rise to 16 million. Every 66 seconds, this one disease takes up residence in another person. And since the year 2000, the mortality of this one disease has increased by 89 percent. More than 15 million Americans provide unpaid care for a loved one suffering from this one disease and like so many of my generation, I was once part of that large ...

Column: When local business thrives, so does community

If you've got shopping to do, the national "big-box" and e-commerce retailers can seem like an appealing option. They're often located close to the interstate. With huge advertising budgets, they bombard us with tantalizing deals and "doorbuster specials." And in the internet era it's easier than ever to make purchases with a few clicks on a laptop or smartphone.

Column: The treasure of a friendship

Column: A miracle on I-20

Benelli, a red Australian Shepherd, and her owner, Athena Hinkle, from Wilmington, N.C., were traveling on I-20 through Kershaw County on Jan. 12 on their way to visit family in Alabama. It was dark and raining outside but Hinkle felt safe as she drove with Benelli. She and Benelli have a special bond that was formed in 2016 when Benelli was a small pup and still with her litter. That bond was cemented when Hinkle's father gifted her with Benelli for Christmas that same year. Her last Christmas with her father. He suffered a fatal heart attack that ...

Column: Seeking gun sanity after Parkland

WASHINGTON -- As pressures mount for Congress to "just do something" about mass shootings, Americans would do well to seek solutions closer to home.

Column: Moment of Nature - Feb. 23, 2018

After a weather week like this, it's hard to imagine any more winter, but don't get your lawn chairs out just yet. Remember, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow indicating six more weeks of winter! Hopefully, it won't be as "winter-like" as January.

Column: The budget process

I talk about budget a lot. I do so because I think it's that important. The decisions made during the budget process directly impact the quality of services we will be able to provide students during the school year that starts this coming August.

Column: We need to talk

One hates to think we could actually start the day saying something like, "ho hum; another mass shooting," but sadly, it sometimes feels that way.

Column: Appreciation to the farmer

Several years ago, when my agent and I were pitching my second book, we made the round of New York publishers, hoping to find enough interest to propel the book into an auction similar to my first one.

Column: The Alexander Young portrait

Well-known, long-time Camden resident William M. Shannon wrote a series of articles for the newspaper in 1876 that described Camden and its people of days gone by. He penned, "Among the new settlers after the [Revolutionary] war, many were the founders of the best society this district has ever known; founders, too, of its noblest and best families, names ever to be remembered with pride and reverence …" Among those, he described Mr. Alexander Young.

Column: Going Hogg wild

WASHINGTON -- It was a profoundly poignant image: Thirty to 40 teens huddled together in a small dark room, their downturned faces illuminated by cellphones as they learned about an active shooter prowling their school.

Column: Unsportsmanlike conduct

On Wednesday, February 7, I drove down to Columbia to watch my older son play in his last JV basketball game -- perhaps his last basketball game ever -- for Camden High School. It was the final game of the season and happened to be against Columbia High School, a team they'd faced at least once earlier in the season.
