The worst is yet to come

WASHINGTON -- It has become axiomatic that when Donald Trump says or does something over the top or below the belt, beware the unseen.

My Brain on NASCAR - Sept. 12, 2017

Labor Day weekend 2017 at Darlington Raceway was the best of times … and then it got better or, depending on where your personal driver allegiances lie, it got worse.

Scandal, corruption, accountability

The current scandal of SCANA's (S.C. Electric and Gas parent company) and Santee Cooper's nuclear debacle is arguably the biggest scandal in our state's history during the last 100 years.

Storytelling songs

When I was almost 17 and started my career in media by hosting a weekend radio show on a country music station, I was no stranger to country music and the great stories told in its songs.

The real America

I believe it to be a reasonable assumption that lately in our country there has been a state of division, if you will. What we have seen many would describe as not a minor division, but rather a gross separation of our citizens. It would be nearly impossible to walk by a working television or computer screen without seeing groups from the left and the right fighting in the streets and flashing signs promoting hate and violence. If we only follow the sensationalism on social media or in the news, we will begin to buy into the concept America is ...

Radio Days

When I was 10 months into my 16th year, I encountered the most fortuitous opportunity. Back then, I always exclaimed of my extraordinary luck, but as I have grown older and more knowledgeable of such things, I now realize it was an enormous blessing.

My Brain on NASCAR - Sept. 5, 2017

I'm not even going to pretend to be unbiased on the subject of Darlington Raceway. "The Lady in Black" is simultaneously NASCAR's greatest and most flawed structural achievement, a lop-sided Southern belle with a mean streak 1.366 miles long.

Revisiting Andrew Jackson in Camden

Recently, an undated and unsigned 47 page manuscript speech concerning Andrew Jackson (1767-1845) turned up at the South Caroliniana Library. I became intrigued with the possibility this manuscript might contain previously unknown information about Andrew Jackson in Camden. I immediately secured a copy for study.

What’s in a name?

Martin -- From the Roman name Martinus, which was derived from Martis, the genitive case of the name of the Roman god Mars. Saint Martin of Tours was a 4th century bishop who is the patron saint of France. An influential bearer of the name was Martin Luther (1483-1546), the theologian who began the Protestant Reformation. The name was also borne by five popes (two of them more commonly knonwn as Marinus). Other more recent bearers include ... the American civil rights leader Martin Luther King...

To brother Cromartie, with love

Moment of Nature - Sept. 1, 2017

As a municipality, we are fortunate to have a very green community. There are 20 parks and green-spaces totaling approximately 115 acres to manage and maintain. Therefore, the Parks and Trees Commission members visit our city parks every other year to check the condition of and make suggestions for improvements. City staff makes notes and incorporates many of the suggestions into budget requests for the upcoming year.

S.C.’s nuclear scandal and politicians

For a columnist like me, the state's nuclear scandal is the gift that keeps on giving. It is no exaggeration to say that there could be a column every week (or several times a week) on the growing scandal -- and it's likely to be so for months and even years to come.
