Scully: Bono and the Battle of Camden

At the Battle of Camden's 235th anniversary, I spoke on behalf of the city. I remembered Bono, rock star and humanitarian, stating every country on earth had been founded on imperial power, or nationalism, or even liberty, but that only one nation had been founded on an idea, and this nation was us, and the idea, the most revolutionary idea in history, is all men are created equal.

Moment of Nature - Aug. 28, 2015

Jenkins: Camping with kids

This summer was a busy one. Among other trips, we made our annual pilgrimage to Table Rock State Park to camp and commune.

I thought I'd offer a few tips we've learned from experience. Primitive, backcountry campers can stop reading here. You'll either be disgusted or bored.
