Cahn: More to fix when it comes to agendas

A week ago, this newspaper applauded both the S.C. House and Senate for unanimously passing a bill requiring governing bodies to publish agendas and to require a two-thirds majority vote before amending those agendas during and up to 24 hours before such meetings.

Parker: Pool party mayhem

WASHINGTON -- Video imagery doesn't get much worse than a white police officer throwing an African-American girl in a bikini to the ground, kneeling on her back as she cries, and drawing his gun on other teens.

Phillips: What now?

Every year around this same time, early June, a certain thought occurs to me. The timing is simply because this is graduation time at high schools, colleges and universities all through our area and the entire United States.

Parker: Caitlyn Jenner’s politics

WASHINGTON -- Barring a terror strike or an Ebola outbreak to distract us, the 2016 presidential election seems headed for a gender identity showdown.

Noble: Andy Griffith is stopping progress in South Carolina

OK, the headline got your attention, so now hopefully you will read the whole column -- and no, it's not technically true. Andy Griffith died in 2012 and he was from North Carolina, not South Carolina.

Elliott: Red, white and true blue

There are times when folks ask me questions about NASCAR and I find myself at a loss for words -- which is the rarest of occurrences, believe me -- and then there are other times when folks ask me questions about NASCAR, and I can't say enough.

Tatum: A cunning plan

Whoever said "money can't buy happiness" either never had it or just took it way too seriously. With enough money, you can, in fact, buy a lot of happiness, or rather, peace of mind, which is a very clearly marked and well-paved route to happiness.

Rich: How fast rumors go

Carrie called the other day and I grabbed the phone just as I was coming in from the garage. I dropped my purse at the foot of the stairs and sat down on a step to talk. No conversation with Carrie is ever short. Even her voicemails run three to four minutes.

Gunn: Journey to nursing excellence

Healthcare is undergoing a fundamental transformation, and nurses are in the midst of many of the changes taking place. Recognizing it is critical to engage nurses throughout the process, KershawHealth has developed our Journey to Nursing Excellence initiative, a three-pronged approach encompassing shared governance, workforce development and staff recognition.

Cahn: A reintroduction of sorts

One of my "rules" about journalism is to always write a story with the assumption there is at least one person who has never read about the subject before. If you're writing about an ongoing debate over, say, school taxes, assume there's someone who has no idea what you're talking about.

Parker: Jenner’s coming-out party

WASHINGTON -- It wasn't quite "Call me Ishmael," but "Call me Caitlyn" made a whale of a splash.

Scully: Moving forward in the new economy

In visiting towns across South Carolina, I see unprecedented progress. Everywhere, it seems, city and county residents are organizing to improve their downtowns, their schools and their industrial parks to attract new business and ramp up economic development.

Walker: What about Bob?

The scruffy gentleman terrier mix had been at the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter for almost six months. Walter Crowe's team knew he was a great dog, but so far, Bob had always been passed over for other available dogs. Then, one loving Walter Crowe caretaker suggested Bob be sent up north for adoption through the local rescue Fostering Foster. That one suggestion leads to a happy ending. But first, some details.

Parker: Reality show jumps 19 sharks

WASHINGTON -- Several years ago, I heard Republican strategist Karl Rove give a most eloquent answer to a question about his faith, rendered here from memory:

Phillips: ‘It’s all about me’

Once again, I turn to the headlines of the day in my search for subject matter for this weekly column. By the way, hello again and welcome to my first column to appear in the Chronicle-Independent on a Wednesday. The "retirement" of Glenn Tucker has caused an adjustment in scheduling for our editorial columns, so mine has been moved from Fridays to Wednesdays. That's not a problem for me, but I will miss reading Glenn's work each week, as I'm sure you will, too.
