Cahn: ‘Responsible journalism’ bill license to censor

Every now and then, some elected official who feels they've been wronged by the press stands up, shakes their fists and calls for journalists to be licensed. Perhaps they're upset with the "liberal" (or, occasionally, "conservative") slant of their boss' editorials.

Last month, S.C. Forestry Commission (SCFC) Pee Dee Region Urban Forester Lois Edwardspresented our Tree City USA Award to Camden City Council.

Parker: Nikki Haley’s righteous gamble

CHARLESTON, S.C. -- By broad consensus, the winner of Thursday night's GOP debate was Donald Trump, followed by Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, with most of the post-game commentary focused on "the fight" between Cruz and Trump.

Rich: The yarns of life

Something the other day took me back to a time, many years ago, when I followed the tight, winding roads of the mountains to present myself at the door of my maternal grandmother's house.

Morgan: From NCLB to ESSA

After several years of what has become typical partisan haggling, Congress has finally reworked its foundation education legislation. "No Child Left Behind" (NCLB) has been replaced by the "Every Student Succeeds Act" (ESSA). NCLB, which basically reduced educational accountability to standardized test results, had pretty much overstayed its welcome. The law's rigid "beat'em with a two-by-four" approach to educational improvement ended up creating more confusion and conflict than promoting actual progress.

Wilson: New year, old tricks from EPA

As we begin a new year, one would hope the Obama administration made a new year's resolution of allowing congress to do its job and not allowing unelected bureaucrats to regulate through administrative fiat. However, it seems this year will be full of even more federal overreach and this administration making up the rules as it goes.

Noble: The new S.C. -- who are these guys?

One of my favorite movies is the 1969 classic Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. The ultra-cool Paul Newman and Robert Redford play small-time bank robbers in the turn of the century cowboy West who were relentlessly pursued by a posse of lawmen that followed them for months across mountains and deserts, to big cities and ultimately even to South America.

Rich: The liberation wrought by a pick-up truck

On a plane once headed out west to Phoenix, I sat beside a very nice man who was flying to a job interview. It was for a bank job, I remember.
