Column: The sing song of cicadas

This job affords me the luxury of being outside, which I enjoy. During these past eight years, I've had the opportunity to observe and capture many moments of nature up close as I prune young trees, perform tree exams and/or water our newly planted trees.

Column: In defense of poodles

WASHINGTON -- It didn't take long after the Helsinki summit for European and American media publications to declare Donald Trump Vladimir Putin's pet dog.

Column: Some day, soon

I don't know that I remember exactly where I was the moment Neil Armstrong jumped off the ladder, landed on the moon and uttered his iconic line, but I do remember watching it.

Column: Born to fly, bound to run

JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -- Republican Ashley Nickloes is the only woman in a seven-way primary race to fill a congressional seat held by one family for five decades. She's also the only military pilot in the race, running against a litany of odds, including the strong possibility that she'll lose to a popular career politician who hunts Bigfoot and made it easier for Tennesseans to eat their roadkill.

Column: Everybody’s dog

In many cases, who rescued who is a pretty good question, but in the case of one recent rescue dog, the better question is how many people did it take to get a dog to safety. Calls, emails, and texts were all pouring into my phone. All about a dog that was roaming around at one of Kershaw County's recycling and trash convenience centers or as some people refer to it, "The Dump." Lots of people were seeing her, a few were feeding her, some could pet her, and others she was following around as they unloaded their trash ...

Column: A folk artist preserves the past

Every community needs a Harold Branham. In a time when things old and quaint fall to modern ways, it's good to have someone with heart, talent, and memories preserve the past. That would be my friend, Harold Branham, a true folk artist. I first heard of Harold from Michele Jackson, the editor of the Blythewood Leader, back in 2008.

Column: A life filled with travels

I'm very lucky to have lived in and visited a number of places around the world and the U.S. during my 50-plus years on this planet.

Column: The legacies

When Daddy and Mama died, there was no great wealth left behind -- though what they were able to leave was truly remarkable for two refugees from mountain poverty: a few pieces of property, including a small farm, some money in the bank, and not one penny of debt. Neither had ever possessed a credit card.

Column: Lyman Draper hits close to home

Last month's column discussed Lyman Draper and his manuscript collection at the State Historical Society of Wisconsin. And as I wrote last month, "thank heavens Draper never came to Camden." Draper crisscrossed the South from the 1838 until the 1880s "borrowing" original manuscripts and documents from the descendants of Revolutionary War veterans and early settlers, telling their descendants he was going to write their ancestor's history. Unfortunately, he never got to the writing phase -- he just kept talking about it and convinced many hundreds of families to allow him to take their documents as research for his books ...

Column: Helsinki hath no fury like a nation scorned

WASHINGTON -- Surely, now, we can concede that letting Trump be Trump has exhausted itself -- even among the smugly credulous.

Column: We’re not amused

Actually, we are. At least I am.

Column: Grilling safety tips

Now that summer is in full effect and the 4th of July has kicked off our official grilling season, there are some things you need to know. Summer grilling safety is vital to ensure that there are no visits to the emergency room due to fire or a foodborne illness. Think about it: Who wants the local fire department crashing your gathering or for a guest to end up in the emergency room due to food poisoning?

Column: Big hat Texan

Most Texans are good people, but you can unfortunately bump into one who has done it quicker, better, faster and had it cost more or less, depending on which answer is appropriate. "It" being any task, project or endeavor. This story is one of comeuppance.

Column: Saving NATO from Donald Trump

WASHINGTON -- When it comes to President Trump, it's hard to pick his worst decision from the plethora he has provided.

Column: The news process isn’t fake, either

Strange things happen in the nation's capitol everyday. It's pretty much a given considering Washington, D.C., is where Congress meets, the President lives and the Superme Court presides. There are times when headlines seem like they belong in the National Inquirer instead of The Washington Post.
