Cahn: Feds give orcas, dolphins new protections

I'm a sucker for orcas (a/k/a killer whales), dolphins and whales. I just love them. Depending on the species, they are, in turn, cute, amazing, majestic.

Scully: The heart and mind of Bud Ferillo

During Black History Month, one particular white man is worth talking about. A descendent of the founders of Charleston, Bud Ferillo embodies a singular vantage point. In 1970, at age 24, he managed Congressman Jim Clyburn's first political campaign and led the floor fight to delete a school segregation plank from the Democratic Party platform at its state convention. He served as chief of staff to two speakers of the House and as deputy lieutenant governor in Gov. Dick Riley's second administration, helping to draft the Education Improvement Act. In partnership with John Rainey, Ferillo's 2005 documentary ...

Noble: Paper or plastic and ‘glocal’ issues

A few years ago my company did some work for the city and mayor of Barcelona, Spain, developing innovative internet and new technology strategies. Both the city and the mayor were wonderful. I thought about them today when I read an article in my local newspaper about plastics in the ocean globally -- and in Charleston.

Parker: Oh, Donnie boy

WASHINGTON -- If you ask Donald Trump fans what they like about him, there's an excellent chance they'll say, "Because he's not politically correct."

Rich: Some things old are new again

In my childhood home, I did not grow up surrounded with literature or commercial novels. What I did grow up with were two items read daily by my parents with strong interest and complete devotion: The Bible and the daily newspaper.

Cahn: My six weeks in a wheelchair

I read a fairly horrifying account of a man who, back in February 1979, found himself paralyzed over the course of just a few days. Thankfully, his condition was temporary, but it took Ralph Neas -- who wrote a first-person account in the Washington Post on Jan. 11 -- nearly two years to fully recover.

Parker: Clinton’s cracked credibility

WASHINGTON -- The first question to Hillary Clinton from an audience member during Monday night's Democratic town hall in Iowa must have been a blow from one so young -- a potential new voter -- this close to the caucuses.

The debate over Glass-Steagall needs to die already.

Noble: Haley’s address -- More, less or better

"This has been a different, and difficult year for South Carolina; a year that warrants a different kind of speech," Gov. Haley said in her recent State of the State Address.

Tatum: Darwin is watching

I recently read a news item about a guy, described as an amateur scientist, who has been keeping extremely venomous snakes and goading them into biting him as part of an ongoing home research project into snakebite vaccine. In fact, he has allowed his snakes, including a couple of rattlers, cobras, a taipan and black mamba, to bite him something like 160 times during the past several years.

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.

Rich: Sticking together 150 years later

After having dinner with our friends, David and Kim, we were leaving the restaurant when someone noticed a placard directing a group toward a reserved room.

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 ...
