The wheels of justice

Earlier this week, I had the opportunity to sit in a Kershaw County courtroom and see our justice system at work. As a news reporter, I have covered many trials and other court hearings through the years. Some have been quite fascinating, some have been quite boring and most have been a combination of the two.

It’s never too late in life to learn

Sometimes you run across a program so impressive that it just leaves you shaking your head in admiration. So it is with Road Scholar.

Driven to independence

WASHINGTON -- This was a bittersweet Independence Day for me.

1-2-3 jump!

I stood on the edge of a swimming pool over the Fourth of July weekend and wavered between whether I should jump in or take the steps. I'd tested the waters with a foot dip and I knew they were cold. I spent the holiday in South Point, Ohio, which had just had some unseasonably cold nights. Though the sun was high in the summer sky, the water had not been warmed.

SC vs. GA vs. KY vs. TN not all about SEC football

The Atlanta Journal Constitution, also known as the AJC, has always had a very special role in the South and for me personally. And, on a recent trip to Atlanta, several AJC stories, all published on the same day, provided a wakeup call about the challenges we in South Carolina face relative to other states in the South.

‘From Man of the World to Monk’:

University of South Carolina history professor Yates Snowden used the phrase for the title of this column in a letter of his in 1922 when he was describing his dear friend, Shirley Carter Hughson. Who was Hughson, why describe him in this manner, and what connections did he have with Kershaw County?

‘So, how are you doing?’

The title of this week's column is the oft-asked question I've received since my surgery back on June 13. The polite thing to answer, of course, is "Oh, I'm fine."

The art of frying biscuits (and everything else)

Mama used to fry biscuits. If you knew Mama, that doesn't surprise you because she fried every food possible. In the course of her life, I knew her to fry green beans, corn, grits and cornmeal mush.

Life experience and judging

WASHINGTON -- How did the Supreme Court manage to agree unanimously that police must obtain a warrant before searching cellphones, yet split on whether employers must offer contraception as part of their health care plans?

The quest for independence

Sometimes, the most challenging thing about writing this weekly column is coming up with a topic, but that's not at all the case this week. My columns run on Friday and even if July 4 wasn't on Friday this year I would still have written my column about the holiday.

Summer is a comin’ in

My point of view with this monthly column is to identify and celebrate positive energies in the community, the building blocks of a vibrant city and county. In that context, the June 24 runoff victory of retired Gen. Julian Burns as the Republican candidate for chairman of the Kershaw County Council offers a worthy challenge to his Democratic opponent, former County Councilman Bobby Gary. In the meantime, we remain grateful to present and continuing Chairman Gene Wise. Mr. Wise has brought new energy and innovation to KershawHealth and to the expanding Central Carolina Technical College; both developments offer possible game ...

Hoisting some cold ones for Ron Muir

Just the other day, I was out by the Atlantic Brewery when a friend reminded me of a memorial service we'd attended there a few years earlier.

Appearances do matter

#LikeaGirl campaign hits hard

I was very impressed with Proctor & Gamble's recent #LikeaGirl commercial. First, let me make it clear that I think putting a # in front of a word or phrase is the stupidest, most mindless and useless trend, probably of all time. Moving on, I am such a fan of this commercial and the campaign itself.

What is S.C.’s civic health?

As with so many things about South Carolina, when it comes to trying to assess the "civic heath" of our state, there are no easy answers. The answers are that we are both healthy and weak, consistent and conflicted, simple and complex.
