In-flight lessons

Getting sick is the worst! I know most people will agree with me, no matter who you are. I'm not sick right now. At least, I'm not allowing myself to believe I'm sick. Yes, I'm coughing and sniffling, but I'm telling myself it's allergies. Positive thinking or denial, not sure which it is, but hopefully it will keep me from getting full-blown go-to-the-doctor kind of sick.

Well, folks, it's about that time again in the political election cycle when candidates for statewide offices are starting to make their announcements about running for office. If you're thinking about running for U.S. Senate, governor or the other statewide offices you know it's only about nine months until the June '14 primary and you need to do something soon.

Hope chest

When I was growing up, all young women had to have hope chests. This was a signal that their only hopes were to get married and find males to take care of them. No woman could have a dream of becoming a doctor, an airplane pilot, a mathematician or a chemist. In fact, the first time my mother asked me about the future, she said, "What kind of husband do you want," not do you want to go to college. Actually, I had seen my friends' homes where the mothers had to cook, clean, wash, obey and hear men display ...

‘The Drumhead’ of conspiracy

Our veterans deserve better

As the chief advocate for seniors and vulnerable adults in our state, I was deeply troubled and saddened that services for a federally-funded program designed to keep veterans in their homes instead of nursing homes is being terminated because of lack of support by the Veterans' Administration.

Civil War-time fare

If you were a Carolina lady in the 1850s, you would likely have a copy of the latest and most fashionable cookbook of the times -- The Carolina Housewife. The little book was written by "A Lady of Charleston" and published in 1847. The "Lady" was Sarah Rutledge, daughter of Edward Rutledge, a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The Camden Archives and Museum has an 1851 edition of the book in our collection. In preparation for the new exhibit, "Camden in the Civil War: The Home Front," I pulled it for exhibit along with quotes from Harriet DuBose Kershaw Lang ...

The treachery of naps

Have you ever had one of those nights where you cannot, no matter how you try, fall asleep? It's the most frustrating feeling to be sleepy and to know that with every minute you stay awake you're getting closer to the hour you have to get up and that you are cheating yourself out of precious sleep minutes?

‘Under the Dome’s’ Big Jim

I've always been a physically small person. As I'm sure many of you can imagine, that led to being bullied quite a bit as a younger person. In fact, I'd dare say that it wasn't until my sophomore year of college that most of the folks around me matured enough not to engage in such behavior.

Invisible Involvement and “Backpack Dumps”

With the beginning of a new school year, I often get asked how parents can help students to be successful in school. Over the years, my thoughts on this topic have evolved quite a bit. As a result, I have come to be a big proponent of what I call "invisible involvement."
