Saving S.C.'s natural treasures: the Edisto River

Recently, I was invited to speak to the Friends of the Edisto and I met Hugo Krispyn who lives on the headwaters of the North Fork of the Edisto. He wrote this about the dangers facing the Edisto and other S.C. rivers.

Fire follows drought

Kershaw County is currently 6-8 inches behind the average rainfall for the year. The rest of the state, for the most part, is experiencing the same or worse conditions. Extended periods of dry weather continually make more forest fuels available to be burned. For example, a fallen log or large limb would typically not be much of a concern during a prescribed burn or when fighting a wildfire. However, these larger fuels have had ample time to dry to a point where they will readily ignite. As you can imagine this makes controlling fires much more difficult as fires will ...

No tears for Fidel

WASHINGTON -- Sometimes history doesn't have to wait to judge -- and when it comes to dictators, even dead ones, we shouldn't either.

Garbage on television

How are cable companies maintaining stability in this present day? I am curious because a few of my friends from college and even the ones back in Summerville barely watch television. They watch television on their phones with apps like Netflix and Hulu.

Some thoughts on the "biased media"

As we dig out from the aftermath of a bizarre election season, I have noticed the screaming, gloating and finger pointing never ends. One continuing rant, common from all sides, is this vilification of "the media." The brainwashed, navel gazing, commie pinko liberal media doesn't tell you this. The goose stepping, rabble rousing right wing media doesn't tell you that. The media is biased this that and the other.

The only perks of the holidays

By the time you guys put on your peepers to read this, I will be in Summerville either sleeping hard or my mother will be dragging me across Summerville to buy new clothes or giving me advice about being an adult. That is one of the things that I hate about the holiday season, going home to hear my parents drag on about topics like that.

The meaning of Mitt

WASHINGTON -- President-elect Donald Trump's flirtation with Mitt Romney as a possible pick for secretary of state has injected a sliver of hope and change into an evolving administration that could use some.

Truth and consequences

WASHINGTON -- Of all the losers in this season of discontent, the mainstream media top the list. I don't say this lightly and sincerely fear that loss of faith in journalism ultimately will cause more harm to the nation than any outside enemy could hope to.

Grateful to so many for so much

We're coming into that season where being thankful is allegedly supposed to be front and center in our thoughts and deportment. I like to think that I am doing just that. After all, it's indeed a miracle that after all the dumb things I've said and done in my more than half a century of blindly fossicking about this planet I'm still alive and ambulatory and have a few marbles left in the hat rack attached to my shoulders.

On hallowed ground

WASHINGTON -- Witnesses who tuned in to Donald Trump and Barack Obama's post-election get-together can't have missed the change in the president-elect's demeanor and affect.

Frustrations of a journalist

I hate the stigma associated with journalists. I realize why people do not talk to me when I go to events in town. They are worried the wrong information will go into the story I write. But I want to tell people every journalist is not the same.
