Driving in the snow and ice

Many people who live in the South -- right here in Kershaw County -- think they're experts at driving in snow and ice, despite the fact that they virtually never have to do it.

Move the Olympics to Camden

By the time this comes out in the Chronicle-Independent, our most recent episode of wintry weather should be behind us. I sure hope so and good riddance. As southerners, we're just not well-equipped or prepared for snow and ice. We don't get a lot of it, thank God. That's one of the many benefits of living here.

I know what blue is

In the early stages so often we would hear, "What's happening to me?" Usually someone nearby could ease the worry with some kind, encouraging words convincing her she was fine and safe then quickly use the art of distraction to steer her away from this momentary fret. Instants like those were especially difficult for me. They delivered innate feelings of guilt. They reminded me of the harsh detail of what we had done. They were a reminder of the fact we had just noticeably lessened the radius of our mother's life. We had to -- her mind was no ...

Looking past the performance

My sister and I recently watched the "Snapped: Jodi Arias" special documentary. My absolute favorite thing to watch on TV is crime investigation programming. I love that type of thing -- real-life murder mysteries and figuring out who's the culprit and how to punish him or her accordingly. That's what I consider real, riveting entertainment.

Brains, bytes and Charleston’s (and South Carolina’s) future

Creating a plan for KershawHealth’s future

Benjamin Franklin famously remarked, "If you fail to plan, you plan to fail." That thought is as true today as it was more than two centuries ago, and it's as important for organizations as it is for individuals. Planning allows both people and organizations to identify strengths, recognize challenges, maximize resources, and plot a course for the future.

Community journalism’s just fine, thanks

It all started when I posted a link to an opinion piece on the Poynter Institute's website titled "Why is local news innovation struggling financially while national thrives?" Here's the comment I made when I posted the link on my Facebook page:

Memories of riding

Few people know or would believe that I have often been a rider. Although living in Camden, the home of the Carolina Cup, and touring England, the site of Epsom Downs, I never rode or attended there. How, then, could I be writing about riding? My mother, a widow at 40 with two young children, left us to our own devices as long as she could check on us out the window. If we were actively playing, she did not intervene. Without a television, money or radio, we had to use our own imaginations for activities. Climbing trees and riding ...

Leave it to Bieber? Please don’t

In our youthful years we all had heroes of one kind or another. I sure did. Some are athletes. In my day that included Bart Starr, Roger Staubach and Tony Dorsett. Some are musicians. In my day they were The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, KISS and earlier, yes, I'll admit it -- The Partridge Family.
