Newcomers have most to prove at Daytona

Although Danica Patrick's pole position will give her the brightest spotlight at next week's Daytona 500, other up-and-coming drivers will have the most to prove as the green flag drops on NASCAR's season.

The changing face of adult education

One of my favorite events each year is the Adult Education graduation ceremony. It's a particularly special occasion for me because it celebrates the accomplishments of people for whom school didn't work out the first time. The genius of American education is that there is always another chance, another opportunity to take care of unfinished business. As we know, the same can't be said in most countries in the world.

The feminist mystique at 50

WASHINGTON -- Now is the time for all good women to pay homage to Betty Friedan, who 50 years ago wrote the game-changing manifesto "The Feminine Mystique."

Grammys reflect mixed bag of music

I did not watch the Grammy Awards this year. Such affairs have lost their shine for me as I've matured and, especially when it comes to pop music, this former radio announcer quickly realizes he's lost touch with today's modern sounds.

David and Goliath

When so many negative occurrences receive coverage in newspapers, television, and gossip, many people forget that positives existed and still exist, especially teachers. I shall never forget David and a few others like him who participated in speech and essay contests for which they received no scholastic rewards and expended a great deal of effort. Of course, everyone knows that the most feared activity is public speaking. In fact, I once told my participants that they should always remember that every member in the audience applauded their bravery. When I was the representative of the school for every speech contest ...

The ghosts of Benghazi

WASHINGTON -- We may never know exactly what happened in Benghazi the night Ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed, but it's becoming increasingly clear that our response was short of optimum.

Offseason moves will help Braves whip Washington

If the Atlanta Braves are going to capitalize on last season's success, they'll need two key ingredients in 2013. The first will be finding the offensive numbers to replace retired third baseman Chipper Jones. A clubhouse staple since he arrived on the scene in 1995, his 14 homers and .287 batting average in 2012 were obviously down numbers for the future Hall of Famer. However, for a team that ranked 21st in overall batting last season, any player with an average over .250 is considered a gift.

Military Monday - Feb. 11, 2012

6 February 1983: I board a greyhound bus to Fort Benning, Ga. I am on my way to Basic Training and Advanced Individual Training (AIT). Thirteen and half weeks later I graduate as an infantry soldier. I immediately report to Airborne school just across post. Four weeks later, after earning my coveted Airborne wings, I get orders for Fort Bragg, N.C. I spend about two years at Fort Bragg and the 82nd Airborne Division and then I spend the rest of my enlistment with the 2nd Infantry Division, Camp Howze, Korea. I left the Army in 1987 and joined ...

KershawHealth centennial marks a continued sacred trust

The celebration of KershawHealth's centennial year is an excellent time to take stock and focus for the future. As always, the starting point must be our mission -- providing excellent care for everyone in Kershaw County, a mission that has remained unchanged for 100 years. It is a sacred trust, passed down by generations of hospital and community leaders who made the kinds of decisions necessary to maintain and support that mission. It seems appropriate to reflect on some of those defining moments in our history and the ways in which they have shaped how we provide excellent care for ...

Phillips: Take the money and run

Here in the Chronicle-Independent newsroom, we're kind of shaking our collective head about the news which broke Tuesday about the early-morning heist of a complete automatic teller machine (ATM) from Mid Carolina Credit Union in Lugoff. The thief or thieves apparently used a large, stolen piece of equipment to rip the ATM from its concrete base and load it into or onto some sort of vehicle, almost surely a truck, given an ATM's size and weight.

Wilson: Fighting back against food stamp fraud

Every day, in every area of our state, hardworking South Carolina taxpayers are being robbed. They are not held up at gunpoint and their homes are not burglarized. But, they are the victims of theft just the same. Criminals are stealing federal funds and using that money for their personal benefit. They are committing fraud against the food stamp program. In fact, they pocket more than $2 million of your tax dollars every year in South Carolina alone.
