Rampell: Consumers are more upbeat

WASHINGTON -- A crazy thing happened while you were recovering from your Christmas food coma, your friends were out buying booze for New Year's Eve and nonprofits were pleading for end-of-the-year donations: Americans finally started saying nice things about their economy.

Phillips: A lose-lose situation

Some time back I wrote a column about "the mob mentality," how society, especially on the internet, will rush to judgment about any number of topics without any real facts or proven truths to back up their opinions. Yes, opinions. Without facts, your opinions (or mine) are all we have. I have heard that we are all entitled to our own opinion, but not to our own facts. Food for thought.

Joseph: Age is only a number

I wouldn't have described myself as "ready" for the situation that had just occurred.

Owens: Starting the year right

Traveling more and seeing more places than I have seen -- throughout the United States and other countries -- is something I declared I would do when I chose my New Year's Resolution.

Jenkins: A helping hand and fortunate feather

This time of year, I am like the hermit thrush, retreating into the woods and intentionally disconnecting in all ways possible. I seem to go through these burnouts with each winter solstice, and the rain only intensified it this year. I've come to accept this cycle and to engage with it in a way which makes it productive. This year, I've used my energy to create habitats for various species. This may seem misplaced. Usually during the Christmas season, humanity reaches out to its own kind. But some days, I have more hope for other species than for ...

Parker: Our bias, ourselves

WASHINGTON -- Recent events from Ferguson, Mo., to Staten Island, N.Y., might prompt an observer to infer American cops are racist and a bigoted white populace tolerates unnecessary lethal force against minorities.

Cahn: We made it to the future

Rich: History is better than fiction

Several weeks ago, I wrote about moonshine runner turned stock car champion, Lloyd Seay, who was murdered in a dispute over sugar purchased to make illegal whiskey.

Tucker: De Blasio needs a better script

There's about as much love between New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio and the city's police department as there is between Sony and North Korea.

Scully: A time to remember

Happy New Year to all. Thank you especially to those bright spirits for whom the glass is always half full. Thank you to those who give others the benefit of the doubt. Thank you to those who see the advantages of moving forward with new projects and new ideas, regardless of possible complications and delays. Thank you to those who understand that you get what you pay for. Thank you to those who know from long experience that Camden has the most exceptionally kind and understanding people on the planet.

Phillips: My new adventure

I think everyone should try something new every now and then. After all, variety is supposed to be the spice of life, so they say. Maybe that sounds odd coming from me, as I have openly admitted on these pages that I prefer watching old TV shows and movies over and over no matter how many times I have seen them before.

Parker: The joke's on us

WASHINGTON -- A writer seeking profound pronouncements for a year-end column is likely instead to find herself awash in punchlines.

Owens: This I will keep

In less than 24 hours, we will be in a new year. Many of us will make New Year's Resolutions and few of us will act on and keep them. As I said in my column about two or three weeks ago (my year in review), the second half of 2014 was rough for me but the unfortunate happenings opened my eyes and made me realize something important, something that I have not quite been doing.

Noble: S.C. New Year’s resolutions

This is the time for New Year's resolutions and I have a few for our state.

Parker: Wacko birds nesting in U.S. Senate

WASHINGTON -- President Obama got it two-thirds right when he said the delayed confirmation of his attorney general nominee, Loretta Lynch, is owing to Senate dysfunction and Republican stubbornness.

Phillips: Take the money and run

Here in the Chronicle-Independent newsroom, we're kind of shaking our collective head about the news which broke Tuesday about the early-morning heist of a complete automatic teller machine (ATM) from Mid Carolina Credit Union in Lugoff. The thief or thieves apparently used a large, stolen piece of equipment to rip the ATM from its concrete base and load it into or onto some sort of vehicle, almost surely a truck, given an ATM's size and weight.
