Richardson: South Carolina during the Revolutionary War

Catawba Chief King Hagler is a beloved symbol of Camden. His image made in iron has crowned the town's successive clock towers since 1824. Today, he stands atop the third clock tower in the center of downtown. He also graces the cupola on city hall and the numerous historical markers at historic sites around town. His image has pointed the direction the wind blows in Camden for 191 years.

Noble: A simple life of virtue

It was announced this week Jimmy Carter has cancer. I don't know what will happen or if it will cut short his life -- though I'm not sure "cut short" applies to a man who is 90 years old.

Rich: The South’s love for nicknames

For some reason Southerners, more than any other region, love nicknames. It's really a show of affection when we care enough to bestow a nickname rather than call a person by his Christian name.

Joseph: The most wonderful time of the year … or not

About this time every year, there are three words that mean different things to different people: "Back to school!" I noticed several days ago where someone on Facebook posted that very amusing Staples' back to school commercial, "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year." I have to say it's one of my favorites, though not necessarily because of the obvious. It's because of the manner in which the dad is frolicking through the aisles of Staples as he tosses miscellaneous school supplies into his shopping cart as his rather unhappy kids stand by and watch.

Phillips: Hey buddy, got a light?
