Phillips: All flash and no substance

I am a musician, so I am, of course, also a big music fan. As far back as my memory can stretch, way before I ever learned to play an instrument, I loved to listen to music. Mostly it was on the radio, but my parents and older sister had a few record albums, too.

Moment of Nature - May 22, 2015

Nothing instills fear in the heart and soul of humans as does a snake. Since the beginning of recorded history, snakes have been a symbol of evil, treachery, poison, etc., and because of this perception, misinformation and folklore, most people hate snakes. Personally I have no problem with snakes; roaches and tarantulas are a different story, but a snake? No worries.

Parker: Jeb Bush’s unfortunate honesty

WASHINGTON -- You know we're off to the races when the first slip of the tongue by the presumed Republican presidential front-runner consumes the news for days and launches the primary race in earnest.

Tatum: Memorial Day reflections -- Reprise

I have a picture -- probably my favorite of my parents -- which sits on my desk in my office at home. It was taken circa 1960, give or take a year or two, on the evening of the West Point Founder's Day ball.

Noble: The myth of the lost cause and the reality of S.C.’s future

More than 60 percent of us who live in South Carolina today were born here. As native South Carolinians, we grew up imbibing the history, heritage and myths of the South. And there is no stronger myth of the South than the myth of the Lost Cause, as beautifully and brilliantly portrayed by the 1939 romantic historical film epic, Gone With the Wind.

Cahn: My other dream location -- Australia!

Rich: When time melts away

It was over Sunday dinner when my sister told me what I did not know. A childhood friend, the red-headed, freckle-faced girl with laughing eyes and the brightest sense of humor possible, was sitting vigil with her husband as death crept close.

Morgan: Favorite teachers and memories

One of the groups I meet with on a regular basis is Student Cabinet, which is made up of students from each of our three high schools. It's always interesting and informative for me to hear the insights, opinions and perspectives from this very formidable group of young people. They don't hold back on what they think, which is a good thing.

Parker: Defining deity down

WASHINGTON -- It is nearly axiomatic presidential contests tend to shine a harsh light on conservative Christians -- inasmuch as they are viewed as the Republican Party's base and are, therefore, deemed fair game.

Phillips: What you don’t know…

I have to admit, in a great many ways, I am a typical man. There can be no doubt that men and women think, feel and act differently in many, or most situations. That's not wrong; it's just the way we're made.

Richardson: Buckley collection donated to Camden Archives

Last Friday, 16 banker boxes of the late Reid Buckley's personal papers arrived at the Camden Archives and Museum. The archives already holds the manuscript versions of Reid's published books and papers about those published works. This recent donation are his day-to-day working files containing miscellaneous correspondence, Buckley family research, book reviews, manuscripts for screenplays he wrote, research materials for his published books, and such. The staff is eager to begin processing the collection and was peeking into various boxes this week. One of the first things they saw was a cardboard box dating to the 1970s which ...
