Connections between Thomas X Roads and Camden

If you journey north out of Camden on Stagecoach Road, you pass Goodale State Park. About 10 miles farther, you will cross a road that leads to Cassatt three miles away on U.S. 1. Next, you will traverse the Sandy Grove Community. Five miles farther, you cross the Bethune-Bishopville Highway at the Tiller's Ferry Community. A mile farther north, your journey takes you across Lynches River into Darlington County.

Column: Living in extreme winter

Maybe we'll get a light snow or two this winter. Being home with hot chocolate, soup, and coffee makes a snowy day a beautifully peaceful day. But what if you lived alone in a cabin in 12-foot snow and your nearest neighbor was 60 miles away? What if the power you rely on is bottled gas. No electricity. Just firewood. Long ago, I traded letters with a writer who faced that situation each winter. He lived alone in the remote reaches of Alaska, the Land of the Midnight Sun.

Column: Beauty product makeover

Makeup and skincare companies must think we're pretty shallow. Not only do their commercials promise the ability to defy the laws of nature by turning back the clock, but they also imply that we care for nothing beyond ourselves. The implication is that we'll buy any product just because, to paraphrase L'Oreal, "we're worth it." This idea certainly insults the intelligence and compassion of the women I know. Sure, we like to look good, but we also want to do good and the sad truth is that many companies today are trying to trick consumers into ...

Column: Perchance to dream, darkly

The other night, I had a seriously weird dream. I don't know if it was from drinking too much cough syrup or if it was a combination of cough syrup, Hunter S. Thompson and Kung Pao Chicken, but whatever it was, it was a real corker. I'm still wondering if I need a week in the Bahamas, or something.

Column: Shenanigans and tomfoolery

For two years I worked as a ticket agent for Southeastern Stages and Greyhound while going to graduate school at the University of Georgia. It was the most entertaining job I've ever had. I worked with a great group of ticket agents and baggage handlers. We came from all over Georgia. I was a wide-eyed innocent seeing things I'd only heard about. It was in the bus station lobby that I saw for the first time a man passing himself off as a woman and there that I saw a man shoot himself. As he approached the ticket ...

Column: It’s almost that time of year

I've seen it once already, so I know more is on the way. The 'it' is what horticulturists, arborists and knowledgeable gardeners all across the country call crepe murder. This is a descriptive reference (that has been around for decades) that refers to the pruning practice of topping one of the South's most iconic trees -- the crepe myrtle.
