Tatum: Memorial Day reflections -- Reprise

Noble: The myth of the lost cause and the reality of S.C.’s future

More than 60 percent of us who live in South Carolina today were born here. As native South Carolinians, we grew up imbibing the history, heritage and myths of the South. And there is no stronger myth of the South than the myth of the Lost Cause, as beautifully and brilliantly portrayed by the 1939 romantic historical film epic, Gone With the Wind.

Morgan: Favorite teachers and memories

One of the groups I meet with on a regular basis is Student Cabinet, which is made up of students from each of our three high schools.

They don't hold back on what they think, which is a good thing.

Phillips: What you don’t know…

I have to admit, in a great many ways, I am a typical man. There can be no doubt that men and women think, feel and act differently in many, or most situations. That's not wrong; it's just the way we're made.

Richardson: Buckley collection donated to Camden Archives

Last Friday, 16 banker boxes of the late Reid Buckley's personal papers arrived at the Camden Archives and Museum. The archives already holds the manuscript versions of Reid's published books and papers about those published works.
