Rampell: Greece’s long-term debt crisis

WASHINGTON -- Greece looks poised to demand more debt relief, and Germany has already begun dismissing these demands. But if history is any guide, more rounds of restructuring are likely in store, and Greece's creditors should probably brace themselves for more, and bigger, haircuts.

Phillips: Small town doesn’t mean small time

I have written here before about how much I like Camden and Kershaw County. That's not just an attempt to get on and stay on "the good side" of those who have always called this wonderful place home. It really is from my heart, and I've lived in enough different places to be able to make that kind of determination. I know the difference.

Arrants: Hawks of a similar look

Here we are in the first days of 2015. Happily, I am beginning this new year by looking forward to the next chapter as I finally move from a house and location I outgrew years ago. As part of selling my house and moving, the process of packing has become a gigantic task of both what to keep and where to put it all. I never knew I had so many useless items until I filled garbage bags with high school yearbooks and other things I can neither assign memory or value. What I dearly love about nature, though, is ...

Parker: Hyping Obama’s Paris fail

WASHINGTON -- If we can be serious for a moment: The president made an error in judgment by not sending someone with a higher profile than our ambassador to join world leaders Sunday at a solidarity rally in Paris.

Cahn: We’re all part of ‘Team Civilization’

I'm having to do it again. It's a compulsion, I suppose, but at least it's a good one, in my opinion. Once again, I see some people on Facebook or other spots on the internet calling for the utter destruction of "Muslims" or "Islam."

Rich: Living through Southern Living with Lindsay

A few years ago, the magazine I have long loved -- Southern Living -- changed. Like most Southerners, I have an aversion to change which is why our traditions have such strangle hold. We never let go.

Scarborough’s Kershaw County ‘Faces’

In 1858, James Chesnut Jr. was elected U.S. Senator from South Carolina. On Feb 15, 1859, this entry was recorded in portrait painter William H. Scarborough's account book, "of James Chesnut Sr., $113.35." The senior Chesnut was paying for the portrait painted by Scarborough of his son James, the newly elected U.S. Senator.

Noble: The worst thing in S.C. politics in 40 years

I have been actively involved in politics in South Carolina for almost 40 years, and what Gov. Nikki Haley and Attorney General Alan Wilson recently did in the Abbeville education case is without question the worst and most outrageous action I have ever seen. The Worst.

Rampell: Consumers are more upbeat

WASHINGTON -- A crazy thing happened while you were recovering from your Christmas food coma, your friends were out buying booze for New Year's Eve and nonprofits were pleading for end-of-the-year donations: Americans finally started saying nice things about their economy.

Phillips: A lose-lose situation

Some time back I wrote a column about "the mob mentality," how society, especially on the internet, will rush to judgment about any number of topics without any real facts or proven truths to back up their opinions. Yes, opinions. Without facts, your opinions (or mine) are all we have. I have heard that we are all entitled to our own opinion, but not to our own facts. Food for thought.
