How ‘bout that?

How 'bout riding in the backseat of a car driven by someone who uses the method of driving where you speed up until you're almost on top of another car and then you hit the brakes hard? How 'bout that indeed?

Amazonian adventures

The printed page has been an introduction to dreams and anticipations for me since I was a child. When my Aunt Eva brought a large house and barn from the heirs of a very old spinster woman, I found a treasure trove! Back then, children were not as restrained as they are today with various activities and parents' eyes constantly upon them. The treasure trove was not gold, but a stash of National Geographics, some possibly as old as the magazine itself. When my mother told me reading was a waste of time, the activity took on even more delight ...

We in South Carolina love our history. As William Faulkner said of the South, "The past is never dead. It's not even past."

KershawHealth committed to offering quality healthcare

As I noted in my column last month, the ultimate objective for KershawHealth is providing quality care for all the people in this community, and one of the biggest factors affecting our success in that endeavor is local support for this hospital. Do people in the community trust and value what KershawHealth offers enough to make it their first choice for care?

‘Arrow’ fulfilling its ‘promise’ on TV

Wednesday's episode of the CW's Arrow is a perfect example of why I watch the show. Such shows -- based on the Green Arrow character from DC Comics -- may be fluff but, in this case, it's intelligent fluff. The writing and acting is spot-on and the producers have paced the first two seasons in a way that doesn't drag things out, but keeps you guessing along the way.

Not just business as usual

We often hear politicians and government officials say that running a government, at any level, is the same as running a business. There obviously is some truth in that. Governments have expenses for personnel, equipment and supplies. They receive funds from their clients (taxpayers) to pay for the services the citizens hopefully receive. Government officials have to budget that money and decide how and where to allocate it to be used.

A nice, quiet evening

This weekend I'm going to a bachelorette party. Actually, it's a combined bachelor/bachelorette party where both the bride and groom-to-be and their closest friends will be in attendance. I'm looking forward to it, but there's always a little bit of anxiety before taking part in an event such as that. I'm sure that's partly due to the Hangover movies and partly due to my own experiences in the past with bachelorette parties.

Why are we abusing our children in South Carolina?

This is a simple question, and the answer is not simple, but there is something that we can all do to help, and we can do it right now -- today.

Be a pig or be a possum

Mama had great stories. My favorite was the only one I asked often for her to repeat. It has become something of an anthem in my life.
