Rich: Old money and old yards

Sometimes, I look across our yard and sigh somewhat woefully, "Too much of that stubborn red Georgia clay shines through." I think, "Oh, one day…."

Morgan: Education -- A catalyst for economic development

Economic development is undoubtedly the front burner topic in our state and in Kershaw County. For good reason.

Joseph: It’s in the numbers…

The grumbles resonated from the kitchen. The sound wasn't particularly loud or piercing at least in the beginning. I guess you could describe it as a low, irregular whine of sorts. I walked in and there he was -- my 11-year old son slumped over his math sheet looking as if the world would end if he did not finish the problems before him. Of course, he was absolute in the fact his mom could not help him with this "math Armageddon." He insisted he would fight this battle alone. I thought to myself, "Does anyone like math? He must ...

Phillips: Promises, promises

This column is printed every Friday in the Chronicle-Independent, but, like everything else we do, it has to be written at least a day or two ahead of going to print.

Mims: Life-long crape myrtle enthusiast has more to say

A friend told me I should have kept my mouth shut and should not have written the letter to the editor concerning crepe myrtles. Why? … because she cannot ride down DeKalb Street without seeking the tree that is different from all others and "doesn't want to cause a wreck." I also received a call this morning informing me that my sleuthing missed the real reason for the Crape murder column. Tree pruning in the historic district was the cause of the column rather than my choice of the only "different" crepe myrtle on DeKalb. It is just that when ...

Cahn: When justice is derailed, we all lose

I'm not the bloodthirsty sort. I don't usually cry out for devastating vengeance against groups or individuals. If there was one person I wanted to know was heading to the electric chair, however, it was Nickolas Jermaine Miller, who will now spend the rest of his life in prison without parole for brutally murdering Beverly Hope Melton in December 2011.
