Column: The Alexander Young portrait

Well-known, long-time Camden resident William M. Shannon wrote a series of articles for the newspaper in 1876 that described Camden and its people of days gone by. He penned, "Among the new settlers after the [Revolutionary] war, many were the founders of the best society this district has ever known; founders, too, of its noblest and best families, names ever to be remembered with pride and reverence …" Among those, he described Mr. Alexander Young.

Column: Going Hogg wild

Column: Unsportsmanlike conduct

On Wednesday, February 7, I drove down to Columbia to watch my older son play in his last JV basketball game -- perhaps his last basketball game ever -- for Camden High School. It was the final game of the season and happened to be against Columbia High School, a team they'd faced at least once earlier in the season.

Column: Reflections

We all had that special teacher or coach who inspired us to believe and achieve while we were in school. Take a minute and think about it. Who was yours? Recently, at Camden Military, we have experienced two occasions that have caused us to pause and reflect on this very question and I wanted to share those with you as well as share my most influential teacher during my school days.

Column: Whispered prayer

Life experiences fuel writing, which is a mysterious thing. Something happens and it sends your mind to places long forgotten. Writing's beautiful. You startle yourself with a luminous phrase. Writing's frightening. A thing sends your mind to places you avoid. Something last week sent my mind to a time I dread and it has me rethinking how I travel this road called Life.

Column: Karma loves football

WASHINGTON -- The delirium over the Philadelphia Eagles' victory over the New England Patriots seems to have been matched by delight in Tom Brady's defeat and the phantom throw of the century.

Column: I wrote about it, then suffered it

I've written about the flu here in Kershaw County twice. It seems only fitting I should experience it, right? Well, no, actually I don't think that, but I ended up doing so anyway. And, no, it was no fun finding out I actually did have Type A flu last Friday.

Column: #Fairness

WASHINGTON -- Just minutes before the start of President Trump's State of the Union address, Hillary Clinton dumped a mea culpa onto her Facebook page, explaining why, a decade earlier, she hadn't fired a campaign staffer accused of sexual harassment.

Column: Jazz

In 1903, when historian and sociologist W.E.B. DuBois heralded the Negro spiritual as the most beautiful expression of human experience born this side of the seas, the singular spiritual heritage of the nation, he had little idea of the cultural hurricane and the resulting tsunami that heritage would engender. Spirituals proved to be the bedrock beginnings of jazz, the most transformative music of the last hundred years. Jazz, originally "jass" from the Irish word "teas" -- pronounced "chass" or "jass" -- meaning heat, passion, excitement, has marked the world we live in with its ever evolving intellectual and emotional charge.

Column: The legend of Bobby Baker

Bobby Baker was the most memorable kid in my first grade class. I spent 12 years matriculating with Bobby, but it was in the first months of those school years that he carved an impression on me that would always bring a smile or gentle laugh when I remembered him.
