Noble: People to legislature -- How long?

In 1993, Bill Clinton became president of the United States for the first time. The movie "Unforgiven" won the Oscar for the Best Picture of the Year. A 51-day stand-off at the Branch Davidian compound near Waco, Texas, ended with a fire which killed 76 people, including David Koresh. The Unabomber's first bomb injured computer scientist David Gelernter at Yale University. The first version of Microsoft's Windows NT operating system was released. Nelson Mandela and Frederik Willem de Klerk won the Nobel Peace Prize. "I Will Always Love You" by Whitney Houston was the No. 1 song.

My Brain on NASCAR - June 14, 2016

This week I'd like to say a few words about a guy no one has ever referred to -- in my presence, anyway -- as their favorite driver. No one has ever spent half an hour gushing to me about his charitable endeavors, which for the record supports health care, education, career training and rehabilitation. No one has bored me by rehashing the hilarity of his sitcom cameo appearances (which never happened). A lot of words fly around in reference to this guy, but very few of them are positive.

Matthews: Public safety in Kershaw County is at risk

Last month, a Cassatt couple woke up to a man standing over them with a sawed-off shotgun. He robbed them before fleeing. Days earlier he stuck his sawed-off shotgun in the face of a female clerk at an east Camden convenience store and robbed her. In April, he forced his way into a Camden home where he made a woman, with her kids, drive him to an ATM to get money. He threatened to shoot one of her children if she refused.

Noble: Bring Mexican political ethics to S.C.
