Cahn: School board almost gets exec sessions right

Back in June, I told you about a S.C. Supreme Court ruling in a North Augusta case concerning public bodies entering executive sessions. As I've mentioned time and time again in this space, we still have a problem with the way certain public bodies here in Kershaw County go into executive session.

Rampell: ‘Advice’ for candidates plagued by economic delusion

WASHINGTON -- Forget Jeb Bush's bold promise of 4 percent economic growth, which Chris Christie subsequently matched. Never mind Scott Walker's attempt to one-up them both, with a pledge of (wait for it) 4.5 percent growth. And ignore Mike Huckabee's slightly higher ambition, recently offered in Iowa, of a whopping 6 percent growth.

Richardson: South Carolina during the Revolutionary War

Catawba Chief King Hagler is a beloved symbol of Camden. His image made in iron has crowned the town's successive clock towers since 1824. Today, he stands atop the third clock tower in the center of downtown. He also graces the cupola on city hall and the numerous historical markers at historic sites around town. His image has pointed the direction the wind blows in Camden for 191 years.

Parker: Time to think

WASHINGTON -- It is that sane and glorious time when the nation's capital dispenses its human cargo to places of origin and locations of respite.

Phillips: A fresh start

As students in Kershaw County head back to school this week and others across the state and the nation have already returned or soon will, there is a certain anticipation as to what the 2015-2016 school year will bring.

Noble: A simple life of virtue

It was announced this week Jimmy Carter has cancer. I don't know what will happen or if it will cut short his life -- though I'm not sure "cut short" applies to a man who is 90 years old.

Tatum: A man for all seasons, sort of

So, another video of an elusive, mythical creature has hit the internet, this time someone's cellphone video of a possible Sasquatch, shot not too far away in the North Carolina mountains.

Rich: The South’s love for nicknames

For some reason Southerners, more than any other region, love nicknames. It's really a show of affection when we care enough to bestow a nickname rather than call a person by his Christian name.

Walker: Rescued by a bloodhound

A special delivery for Hailey recently showed up at the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO). A $100 check -- in the form of a donation -- for Hailey the bloodhound.

Joseph: The most wonderful time of the year … or not

About this time every year, there are three words that mean different things to different people: "Back to school!" I noticed several days ago where someone on Facebook posted that very amusing Staples' back to school commercial, "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year." I have to say it's one of my favorites, though not necessarily because of the obvious. It's because of the manner in which the dad is frolicking through the aisles of Staples as he tosses miscellaneous school supplies into his shopping cart as his rather unhappy kids stand by and watch. Their faces are ...
