Rampell: Cyberbully attacks on women

WASHINGTON -- The first time my dad noticed somebody on the internet had called me an idiot, he decided to take matters into his own hands.

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. I normally write my column on Wednesday. That's what I did last week, as usual. My point is, I would have written this column last week if I could have.

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.

Rich: The ‘Justified’ South

Hollywood, more often than not, gets it wrong about the South in movies and television. When they do get it right, we Southerners are both amazed and appreciative.

Gunn: Employee engagement drives performance improvement

During the past year, the administration and board of trustees of KershawHealth have made a concerted effort to ensure our employee team both understands and embraces the hospital's role in our community. We celebrated those relationships with the YouAreVital and What Matters Most marketing campaigns, with town hall meetings and other internal initiatives. It's had an impact I recognize every day in our team members who are energized and excited by what we are accomplishing and about our future.

Noble: While I breathe, I hope

Feb. 27 -- Regular readers of this space know that I have basically two articles of faith about South Carolina -- and, recently, they both came together in one joyous moment.

Phillips: Come on, spring!

One of the many perks of living in the Midlands of South Carolina is our moderate climate. OK, maybe it hasn't felt so moderate the past few weeks, but think about New York, Boston, Minnesota, Michigan and other northern areas. Now, they know what cold really is!

Scully: The clinic

If the soul of Camden resides in its communities of faith, surely its heart sits at 110 C East DeKalb St., the home of the Community Medical Clinic of Kershaw County, known far and wide as "The Free Clinic." The outpouring of love at the Clinic has proven to be a transformative force, continuously healing wounds of body, mind, and spirit.

Jenkins: A story in the scat

Two weeks ago, during our weekly field trip, I was walking with my students along a dirt road in Manchester State Forest. There upon the dirt was a hairy strand of something, about the size of a cheap cigar and tapered at both ends. Earlier that day, we examined paw prints in the sand on the same dirt road. The students drew good connections from those tracks to this new observation, correctly calling it coyote scat. Coyotes are funny this way, dropping their scat in obvious places. In addition to waste excretion, they use feces to communicate their presence to ...

Parker: The GOP -- a tragedy in 52 acts

WASHINGTON -- I'm getting that deja vu feeling as House Republicans these past several days have failed to alter the public's perception they're incapable of governing.
