Water power

The Camden Archives and Museum will mount an exhibit about Camden's cotton mill era in late January 2018. Most museum exhibits take months to research, develop and mount, so we are already exploring this topic. Camden's commercial cotton mill has historically been located at the lake on Little Pine Tree Creek, known long ago as "Factory Pond," and now as "Kendall Lake." The lake has held a place in Camden's history for more than 250 years.

Seniors look back

One of the groups I meet with regularly is Student Cabinet, which is made up of student council officers from every grade from each of our high schools. I get very (very, very) honest feedback and a lot of extremely useful information and perspective from this group. At the last meeting of the year, I always ask the seniors in the group to talk about their plans and their favorite teachers and memories from their school careers. I'm always touched by what they have to say because it's all so genuine. I'm also always struck by the ...

Behind the scenes

As you can probably imagine, it's impossible to, literally, include everything about a particular event, person or issue in a single article or even a series of articles in a newspaper.

The unnecessary obituary

One of the dearest and oldest friends I have, had a close brush with death recently. He didn't just stand on the banks of the River Jordan and cast a longing eye to that other shore, he waded right into its sparkling, clear waters.

First responders are superheroes

When the call comes, they have the training, equipment and courage to respond. Be it during dinner or Sunday school, these superheroes work long hours, in crazy situations we cannot even imagine. These special heroes answer the call to protect and save our citizens day and night.

The role of business in legislative affairs

Recently, I've been thinking about the role of businesses in legislative affairs. My perception has been that larger businesses are the ones who get involved and have the most influence. They have seemingly unlimited funding and resources to make sure their voice is heard by local, state and national elected officials. This perspective ignored small business, who generate 54 percent of sales in the U.S. and provide 55 percent of all jobs (according to the Small Business Administration's small business trends website: https://www.sba.gov/managing-business/running-business/energy-efficiency/sustainable-business-practices/small-business-trends). Where is the voice of the ...

Scratching my head, again

I swear, one of these days I'm going to either scratch my head completely bald -- I'm already more than halfway there -- or just shake it right off my shoulders.

Rodney teaches

After Sunday dinner, while the others cleaned, talked or dealt with children, I sat down in a recliner matching the one that Rodney was in. I inhaled deeply and leaned forward, my elbows resting on my knees.

My Brain on NASCAR - June 13, 2017

One of the most exciting things to happen in NASCAR in a very long time didn't happen during a race. Rather, it happened when someone in Richard Petty Motorsports' PR department hit "Send."

Police work needs good sense of humor

Being a police officer is definitely a challenging and dangerous career path. This includes the dangers to the heart and mind. Arriving at fatal collision scenes, responding to abused children and vulnerable adults, suicides, murders and death notifications are some of the things law enforcement officers take home with them every day. These are things that weigh on the mind and heart and can interfere with the well-being of an officer's family. This makes it all the more important that we take time to really laugh and enjoy a prank or two. Laughter is the best medicine any of ...

The wonder of Wonder Woman

Let's get something straight right from the start: I did not go see Wonder Woman because I wanted to ogle Gal Gadot's body. I certainly didn't take my teenage sons and two of their friends to see it so they could be titillated by her Amazon costume.
