Parker: A new day in South Carolina

Phillips: What’s your soundtrack?

Sometimes the inspiration for my weekly column comes from the strangest of places. Often, there's a hot news story, usually controversial, I feel like espousing my opinion about. That's not so strange. Other times, I think back to something which has happened in my life, hopefully funny, to share with you. That also is not particularly strange. But this week the idea came to me as I sat at home playing my guitar and trying to figure out some new songs I had never played before. None of them were really "new," but they were new to me.

Arrants: Finding nature anywhere

Several weeks ago, I had the opportunity to join a client kayaking down a creek on his property. As we slowly floated along the beautiful waterway, I couldn't help but remind him of just how fortunate he was to own several miles of such wonderful nature. He turned to me and commented on how cool it must be for me to be able to call it "my office." When I was heading out into the field the next morning, notebook and binoculars in hand, he called to me from across the road.

Gunn: PricePoint website offers guide to hospital pricing

Sticker shock -- we all face it at one time or another. Whether it's the cost of a home, an automobile or even a stay in the hospital, it's easy to be taken aback by the prices we pay. In an effort to help patient consumers make better informed decisions about their own care, KershawHealth is participating in PricePoint, the South Carolina Hospital Association's (SCHA) new website designed to clarify hospital pricing in our state.

Cahn: ‘Hail to the R--’ er, what now?

The controversy about whether to rename the Washington, D.C., football team is not a new one. However, our controversy here in South Carolina regarding the Confederate battle flag, got me thinking about other symbols.

Parker: When bragging is winning

WASHINGTON -- "So, Mom," he says. "Did you tweet that you were going on 'Meet the Press'?"

Parker: The Don vs. The Bern

WASHINGTON -- Stranger things have happened in American politics, but the sudden surge of Democratic/Populist Bernie Sanders and Republican/Pompulist Donald Trump puts one in mind of alternate universes.

Phillips: Just running around in circles

Years back, in the late 1990s during my first stint living in South Carolina, I was a NASCAR fan. Not as passionate about it as some people, for sure, but I was interested and watched every race on TV and even went to a couple of major races in Charlotte and one in Darlington. It was a lot of fun.

Rich: The legacy of light

Many people have crossed the path of my life, but only one crossed it from three different directions. Don Light, one of Nashville's most admired powerbrokers and star makers, was meant to be part of my life. I say this repeatedly because I encountered him through friends in country music, Southern gospel and NASCAR racing.

Teal: ‘Muscle’ memories

When we examine our experiences over time, our recollections of some of them stand out like posts supporting our "fence of life." These are memories we will never forget. Some refer to them as "muscle" memories, very strong ones.
