Noble: Another wake-up call for S.C.

Occasionally I ask a distinguished guest columnist to share this space. This column is by John Warner, who over a 33-year career has become a widely recognized leader of the innovation and entrepreneurial community in and around South Carolina. He is CEO of Concepts to Companies, which partners with strong academic researchers and other technologists who have compelling business ideas but do not have the experience or the desire to startup companies alone. He can be reached at johnwarner@conceptstocompanies.com.

Tatum: Fiddling among the embers

There's an old adage, something about never discussing religion or politics with friends or family, unless you want to get rid of them forever.

Parker: A woman in full

WASHINGTON -- With the latest poll numbers tallied and political pundits having spoken, a consensus has emerged: Hillary Clinton won the first Democratic debate and, barring a Benghazi piñata exploding with revelations, has cinched the nomination.

Rich: It really takes a lot to be a proper Southerner

It takes a lot of time to be the proper Southerner, the kind respected for thoughtfulness and kindness. In fact, it takes so much time, it's looking like I may have to give up my job, just to act like Mama raised me and Daddy expected me to do.

Morgan: Do we really need another Act 388?

At a superintendents meeting in September, I heard a presentation from a member of the S.C. Senate Finance Committee staff on budget and revenue issues which will impact our state. It's often difficult to get one's arms around fiscal issues because the information is generally presented in pithy sound bites reflecting the bias of the politician, media person or interest group being quoted. This particular presentation, however, got my attention because it put tangible numbers and an objective picture on the table. I thought the highlights of his speech were worth sharing in this column.

Cahn: Feeling overwhelmed? Me, too

Not just due to the change we've made to our twice a week schedule, or even because of last week's weather, but, goodness!, have I felt overwhelmed lately.

Parker: The Sanders-Trump magical mystery tour

WASHINGTON -- Barrels of ink and galaxies of pixels have been sacrificed to solving the mystery of the spectacular rises of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.

Richardson: Trailing a ghost

On the evening of August 15, 1780, Catherine Orr Alexander looked up at the night sky in Mecklenburg County and wondered exactly where her husband was. She knew he was in harm's way for he was serving with the Continental troops under Gen. Horatio Gates. Little did she know he was not very far away from Charlotte Town, just down the road toward Camden at Rugeley's Mill, encamped with the American troops who were preparing for an encounter with the British at the garrison at Camden. What ensued would become known as the Battle of Camden. It was ...

Op-ed: Reform road system first

If more money were the answer to the state's infrastructure woes, the topic would hardly be worth debating. The real trouble with South Carolina's roads, though, isn't a lack of money. It's a lack -- indeed, a total lack -- of citizen control or influence on road funding. How do we know more money won't produce better roads?

Tatum: Your reputation precedes you

So, I walked into a neat little country store/artists colony thing up in the mountains last week. Having been drawn by the sound of a Martin guitar and an easy-going voice doing old folkie tunes from the hills and hollers, I sat down with a glass of tea for a listen.

Parker: Don’t do it, Paul Ryan

WASHINGTON -- The worst job in the world, it turns out, isn't the U.S. presidency but speaker of the House of Representatives.

Rich: A childhood friend and lesson

When I was 6, the boy with hair the color of cotton and eyes tinted sapphire came to live with us. He was the same age and size as I, but more timid and less secure. Depending on the day, we were either best of friends or the worst of enemies.

Noble: Race, guns, culture and change

I love South Carolina and the South -- I really do. And I consider myself a reasonably serious student of our history and culture.

Parker: A Rose for racial reconciliation

OXFORD, Md. -- Long before there was a "Black Lives Matter" movement, there was Ruth Starr Rose -- an activist artist whose paintings nearly a century ago captured the dignity and spirit of America's black families at a time when stereotype and caricature prevailed.
