Cahn: The ‘Criminal Minds’ of television

Last week, I mentioned I'm a fan of NCIS: New Orleans. I'm also a fan of the original NCIS and its other spin-off, NCIS: Los Angeles. NCIS, as you might know, is a spin-off itself of JAG, which started on NBC and then moved to CBS, home of the NCIS franchises.

Phillips: Why, Brian, why?

I often write here about the news of the day, whether it is on a local level, statewide or beyond. There certainly is plenty of it, especially with so many news outlets on the internet and cable and satellite TV. Well, that may be a stretch sometimes, as many of the news outlets will report just about anything with little to no regard for the truth or whether a topic or event is indeed newsworthy.

Beckham: The local Valentine, Cupid

WWII brought about the greatest migration of U. S. citizens. Millions joined the Armed Forces and went to training facilities outside of their local area and many were transferred overseas, while the need for mass production moved countless citizens to new locales to find jobs in industry.

Joseph: Thank a teacher

At the close of this school year, I will have spent 16 consecutive years at Camden Elementary School, yet in four-months, I will no longer have children meandering through its halls. It will mark the end of countless bagged lunches, signed report cards, book bags and hours of recess. The time we spent there, though a mere singular season of our lives, was good to us and filled with remarkable memories of a myriad of field trips, assemblies and favorite teachers. And in my genuine reflections, what (or who) has made the most significant imprint on my mind? My thoughts ...

Arrants: Learning to fly

Leaving Kershaw County after living here for more than 25 years has brought a great deal of excitement about the wonderful road ahead and, as with times of change, a touch of nostalgia. I'm not nearly as prone to staring back at the past as I once was. I'd much rather focus on where I am and what lies ahead than sit around and wax nostalgically about high school days. I'm nothing like the bumpkin inside a tiny world I was then and I take a great deal of pride in that. I'd also like to ...

Gunn: LiveWell Kershaw

Partnerships are powerful, and I can think of few better examples than LiveWell Kershaw. This collaboration connects KershawHealth, the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina, the Community Medical Clinic of Kershaw County, Access Kershaw, and a host of other local agencies in an innovative initiative to make Kershaw County the healthiest county in South Carolina, and to become a model for other communities across South Carolina and the nation. It's a huge goal, but one worthy of the pursuit.
