Morgan: Beyond 2015

A lot of people who write columns use the last one of the year to talk about the "year that was." As I have been reflecting on the past 12 months, it occurred to me 2015 was an extremely important year in terms of public education in South Carolina. Events which have unfolded during the past year and how they play out in 2016 will set the stage for how education in our state will look for years to come.

Cahn: TIME makes best choice in Merkel

I'm one of those people who loves TIME magazine's idea of picking a person (or thing) of the year. Sometimes, the editors' choices have been a bit odd such as 1982 when they chose the personal computer or 2006 when the choice was "You." There have been years when the choices have reflected pure evil -- Hitler in 1938, Stalin the next year and in 1942 and the Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979.

Parker: Waging war outside the box

WASHINGTON -- Americans looking for a Snuggy Bear and a blankey to ease their anxieties about the Islamic State will have to become more comfortable with ambiguity and uncertainty.

Joseph: Lessons on terror from Buddy the Elf

Lately, I've hesitated to turn on my television for fear of being pelted with disturbing news of further terrorist acts across the globe. I have to believe many share these same propensities. It's hard to ignore the barbaric cowards responsible for spreading these heinous acts, their terror over much of our world. We hear journalists, politicians, government leaders speak words like, "these are uneasy times" or "we live in a different world now."

Noble: The legacy of Joe Riley

"Until the arrival of Joe Riley, Charleston was a sleepwalking, underachieving city with its eyes fastened on a past where its citizens began the most calamitous war in American history. The story of Joe Riley is the story of the renaissance of a city restored to greatness by the dauntless vision of a single man." --Pat Conroy

Tatum: Vote for me if you dare -- Part II

This is one that bears trotting out again. I can't decide if I was being tongue in cheek when I wrote it back in 2007 or if I was actually foretelling what we could expect from then on out.

Parker: The few, the foolish

WASHINGTON -- As the Islamic State amped up attacks around the world, the Pentagon responded by bravely announcing that American women will now be put in direct ground combat.

Rich: The Yankee and the pocket knife

A few months ago, a reader showed up at an event I was doing and handed me a newspaper clipping of a column I wrote eight or nine years ago.

Arrants: For some birds, ‘tis the season

Now that all of the Thanksgiving feasts and a fraction of the leftovers have been consumed, the holiday season is in full swing. For many, this time of year often brings much needed time away from the office, more time with family and friends, travel and preparing for the colder temperatures December usually brings. While we're gearing up for the holidays, some of our feathered friends are gearing up for an entirely different season.

Gunn: Building our future together II

Excellent patient care is a priority at KershawHealth. Every day, our physician and employee teams here work hard to care for our families, friends and neighbors with the right care to every patient, every time. This is a cornerstone of high-quality healthcare and essential to our success.

Cahn: All candidates should leave the stage

Unless something really changes during the next 11 months, I may skip voting for president for the first time since I became eligible to vote more than 30 years ago.

Parker: Deranged and dangerous

WASHINGTON -- Predictably, the killing rampage at a Colorado Springs Planned Parenthood facility has prompted a political scrimmage of the usual sort.

Scully: Tzedakah and Kesha Hayes

As a non-partisan mayor with little real power, I am nonetheless elected to look out for all the people of Camden, a city with many interconnected groups. I am reminded of St. Paul's teachings on the Mystical Body of Christ: "The eye cannot say to the hand, 'I have no need of you;'" or again, the head to the feet, "I have no need of you." Here, we cannot say to the homeless and the hungry, "we have no need of you," because we do: we are one body.

Noble: Tribes, South Carolina and politics

"Who are your people? Where did you grow up? Are you from around here? Where did you go to school?"

Tatum: All in the family -- Part deux

It's been a couple of years since I've gone to the annual Tatum Thanksgiving family reunion. We have traditionally gathered at my aunt's house in Bamberg the Saturday after Thanksgiving to catch up, re-tell hoary but hilarious tales of years past, engage in a little ancestor worship and, of course, gorge shamelessly on a meal guaranteed to shut down the collective circulatory system of a medium sized elephant herd.
