Accepting the hand we’re dealt

I have a friend who says he's stopped asking people how they're feeling.

Springing into organization

I recently read an article online about ways to get your wardrobe ready for spring and the one thing it encouraged, above everything else, was organization. It suggested that the time between the end of winter and the beginning of spring was a very important time to evaluate what you need and what you don't when it comes to clothing.

Make love not war

WASHINGTON -- We've heard much about the Republican war on women. Exhaustingly.

12 candidates, 12 ideas

In the 2014 election, the post of State Superintendent of Education is open. The incumbent Mick Zais is not running again. By my count, to date there are 12 people that are announced candidates -- 10 Republicans and two Democrats.

A somber, but important anniversary

Of all the hundreds of stories I have written for the C-I, perhaps the most gratifying and the most tragic was "Death of a Deputy," a five-part series we published in 2009.

By chance, we happened upon him in a small gift shop. The clerk recognizing me laughed and said, "What a coincidence! She just bought a copy of your book!" She gestured toward a small woman browsing through a group of men's sweaters.

Should S.C. pay for surveillance?

Gov. Nikki Haley's executive budget grabbed a few headlines for its items on education, transportation and Medicaid waiver programs. One component of the budget was almost completely ignored, however, and it shouldn't be. The governor's proposed spending plan includes $8.5 million in total funds -- $5.3 million from the federal government -- for a Criminal Justice Information Services (CJIS) Fusion Center.

Few today remember The Orangeburg Massacre

If you're now a 60-year-old native South Carolinian, you're unlikely to have any personal memory of the events known as the Orangeburg Massacre. You would have been 14 when it happened on Feb. 8, 1968 -- two years before the deaths of four white students at Kent State University in Ohio.

The Mills Courthouse -- not!

Long before I came to work in Camden, my husband and I would drive up here from Sumter to have a lunch date some Saturdays. As we passed the Robert Mills Courthouse, the historic preservationist part of me would smile in satisfaction that the people of Camden preserved this landmark. Sumter's oldest courthouse, which Mills modified, was torn down in the name of "progress" years ago -- and they built a Maxway in its place! Really!

Do they really mean it?

Gentlemen, start your engines! It's NASCAR season again, with the Daytona 500 coming up Sunday. There's always a high amount of excitement in the air this time of year, as everyone starts the season with the same record and number of points -- zeros all across the board.

The milk and bread crisis

What does a person who suffers from both lactose intolerance and celiac disease do during a natural disaster/state of emergency/winter storm? Since the staples of these said storms are "milk and bread," my guess is … she starves to death?

White guys in tall buildings

The other day, a long time South Carolina businessman remarked that in the past, the top 10 leaders in our state were the 10 white males that had the 10 biggest corner offices on the top floor of the 10 tallest buildings in the state.
