Parker: The GOP brat pack

Phillips: My last hurrah?

As I have written about a couple of times here, especially last week, I have been promoted to the position of editor for The Country Chronicle, the weekly newspaper covering Blythewood and the surrounding area in northern Richland County.

Noble: The Emanuel Nine, four months later

It's off the front page of the newspapers. There are no packs of reporters prowling the streets. The banks of television cameras across from the church are all gone. The politicians and celebrities have all gone home.

Parker: Yo ‘heart’ el papa

WASHINGTON -- "Oh, so you drank the Kool-Aid," my neighbor superciliously sneered from the stoop he occupies each afternoon to sip wine and critique people's parking skills on our beloved Olive Street.

Tatum: How to sing the blues

I got this a few years ago from a twisted musician friend of mine. Of course, I don't usually publish something I get by email, but this was pretty funny and unlike most memes, pretty good natured. So in honor of the upcoming Carolina Downhome Blues Festival, I thought I would share it.

Walker: A super ‘Squeaky’ hero

Names have always been interesting and fun when it comes to Lita "Squeaky" Wagensteen. From the horse "Goldman Sox" to the dog "Zsa Zsa Goober," Squeaky and her late husband, Dr. Stephen Wagensteen, have generated hundreds of smiles with their creative dog names. And they've saved hundreds of dog lives by their generosity.

Rich: Finding time to make a living

It was somewhere near the end of summer when it just come to me: perhaps my writing days were over. It was time to just give up the ghost and move on from making a living as a writer and just settle into handling daily problems.

Cahn: Larson was more than Jimmy Olsen

At one point, Jack Larson hated the role with which he would become synonymous: Jimmy Olsen on the 1950s television series "Adventures of Superman." It wasn't until 2006, according to an interview with the Chicago Times, he finally realized -- and thanked -- his later success was due to taking on the iconic role of "Superman's pal."

Moment of Nature - Sept. 25, 2015

Last month, I wrote about how the extreme temperatures in June, the current drought conditions throughout the summer and the probability of bugs attacking trees is likely, all of which are wreaking havoc on our community trees. As of this writing, we've had gone 21 consecutive days with no measurable rain fall within the city center. Today (Thursday), it is finally raining, but we are still way behind in adequate soil moisture. Unless trees have been receiving supplemental water via irrigation systems, they are still stressed and susceptible to insect pests and disease.

Phillips: Thank you, Kershaw County

I mentioned this in my column two weeks ago, but I now want to go into more detail on what's happening in my professional life. As we announced a few weeks back, the Chronicle-Independent is shifting from three days a week to two. As part of these changes I am being promoted to the position of editor for The Country Chronicle in Blythewood.

Noble: Electing the King (or Queen) - Part 2

My last column served as an introduction to the upcoming election for mayor of Charleston. Beaufort's Mayor Billy Keyserling coined the phrase "King of the Coast" to describe the outsized influence the mayor of Charleston -- whoever it may be -- will have on coastal South Carolina and indeed the state as a whole.

There's not a day goes by I don't think of Mama and do something the way she taught me to do it.
