Tatum: Getting our just desserts

When I was a wise-elbowed, wet nosed kid barely out of college, a lot of people used to annoy me with questions about what I wanted to do for a living.

(Kathleen Parker wrote this column in advance of President Barack Obama's appearance in Charleston for State Sen. Clementa Pinckney's funeral.)

Cahn: Getting executive sessions right

Listen up, local public bodies: the S.C. Supreme Court recently ruled in a North Augusta case which I hope will make clearer -- if not settle once and for all -- how you enter executive sessions.

Rich: A father to remember

It happens all the time. Tink will meet someone new around where we live and, invariably, that person will mention my daddy.

Gilland: The Snake Tree (Part 2)

(In last month's column, Camden Urban Forester Liz Gilland started a story about a snake in a tree in a city right of way. When she left off, Gilland had called a wildlife trapping company -- which didn't handle snakes -- and naturalist Austin Jenkins, who suggested it was best to leave the snake alone.)

Noble: Denmark Vesey and Clementa Pinckney

One of the questions of the tragic killing of Rev. Clementa Pinckney and eight of his church members at Emanuel AME Church is, why him? And, why now?

Phillips: The lost art of playing

I do have to admit having a love/hate relationship with technology. It's something we all rely on, more and more each day, it seems, but I don't have to look very far to find some negatives about it, too. The biggest is how reliant we have become on it, usually without even realizing it. Like many things, it has evolved and grown at a gradual pace so it hasn't been as noticeable as it would have been if changes suddenly occurred.

Tatum: Father’s Day memories -- reprise

(This is one I wrote a number of years ago. In honor of my father, I am re-running it for Father's Day. May all fathers out there be as great as mine, and may they all know, wherever they are, how much they mean to us.)

Walker: Critter calls

Would you welcome seven fawns, six flying squirrels, four prairie dogs, nine tortoises and nine cottontail rabbits into your home … all at once? The answer is a resounding "Yes!" if you are Camden resident Margaret Buckelew. Buckelew is the founder and operator of Pine Tree Hill Wildlife Care and Exotic Rescue, and she answers the call of duty for wildlife and exotic animals in Kershaw County and several surrounding counties.

Parker: A time to grieve

WASHINGTON -- Unspeakable, unimaginable, incomprehensible and unthinkable are the words we've heard and used to describe the horrific murders of nine African-Americans as they prayed in a Charleston, South Carolina, church, shot by a hate-filled racist on a genocidal purge.

Cahn: ‘Nawlins’ a worthwhile trip

My father and I managed to arrive before sundown, the downtown New Orleans skyline spread before us on I-10 as it jogged through the city before heading further west. Our actual destination: a small home in Metarie, La., just outside the Crescent City, where we would stay for the next four nights on my first-ever visit to the Big Easy, a belated 50th birthday present from my Dad.

Parker: Jeb!

WASHINGTON -- If anyone should be feeling an overwhelming sense of Groundhog Day this presidential election, c'est moi.

Richardson: Preserving Camden’s heritage in the era of the modern age

"Why is Camden unique?" This is the first note on a faded yellow legal pad sheet found in a folder of papers from 1971 through 1973 found in the collection of the Camden Archives and Museum. These notes from the "Camden Committee" reveal the concerns of a group of Camden citizens in the early 1970s as Camden hurtled forward in the "modern age." We'll revisit this group's efforts in a bit. My advice, in hindsight, would be that they should have talked to Reid Buckley, who at the same time was writing a manuscript about his feelings about ...
