WASHINGTON -- I must need to smoke pot.

It’s time to close, and lock, the ‘-gate’

The Watergate scandal. It all started with the June 17, 1972, break-in at the Democratic National Committee headquarters inside the Watergate office complex in Washington, D.C., and resulted more than two years later in the first resignation by a sitting U.S. President. I was 14 at the time of the break-in and I remember it well. It seemed like that was all that was on the national TV newscasts for that entire two years and beyond. If Hollywood is to be believed, the break-in was first noticed and reported by a simple man from Greenbow, Ala., named Forrest ...

Southern Charm isn’t charming

I'm not much for reality shows on television, but when I saw an advertisement for Southern Charm, a show set in Charleston, I thought I'd take a look.

Wired to connect

Can we fully live without human connectedness? I believe I will rely on researchers at Psychology Today or the like to tackle and decipher all the answers to this tough question, but will safely say in my opinion, a life without human contact would not hold significant worth for most of us. We can attest to this by the relationships, the connectedness we hold with family, friends, with perfect strangers. It is the daily connections we have with our mom, our dad, our sister, our brother, our neighbor, our best friend, our co-worker. It is the guy in front of ...

How ‘bout that?

How 'bout riding in the backseat of a car driven by someone who uses the method of driving where you speed up until you're almost on top of another car and then you hit the brakes hard? How 'bout that indeed?

Amazonian adventures

The printed page has been an introduction to dreams and anticipations for me since I was a child. When my Aunt Eva brought a large house and barn from the heirs of a very old spinster woman, I found a treasure trove! Back then, children were not as restrained as they are today with various activities and parents' eyes constantly upon them. The treasure trove was not gold, but a stash of National Geographics, some possibly as old as the magazine itself. When my mother told me reading was a waste of time, the activity took on even more delight ...

KershawHealth committed to offering quality healthcare

As I noted in my column last month, the ultimate objective for KershawHealth is providing quality care for all the people in this community, and one of the biggest factors affecting our success in that endeavor is local support for this hospital. Do people in the community trust and value what KershawHealth offers enough to make it their first choice for care?

‘Arrow’ fulfilling its ‘promise’ on TV

Wednesday's episode of the CW's Arrow is a perfect example of why I watch the show. Such shows -- based on the Green Arrow character from DC Comics -- may be fluff but, in this case, it's intelligent fluff. The writing and acting is spot-on and the producers have paced the first two seasons in a way that doesn't drag things out, but keeps you guessing along the way.

Not just business as usual

We often hear politicians and government officials say that running a government, at any level, is the same as running a business. There obviously is some truth in that. Governments have expenses for personnel, equipment and supplies. They receive funds from their clients (taxpayers) to pay for the services the citizens hopefully receive. Government officials have to budget that money and decide how and where to allocate it to be used.
