Noble: Andy Griffith is stopping progress in South Carolina

OK, the headline got your attention, so now hopefully you will read the whole column -- and no, it's not technically true. Andy Griffith died in 2012 and he was from North Carolina, not South Carolina.

Elliott: Red, white and true blue

There are times when folks ask me questions about NASCAR and I find myself at a loss for words -- which is the rarest of occurrences, believe me -- and then there are other times when folks ask me questions about NASCAR, and I can't say enough.

Tatum: A cunning plan

Whoever said "money can't buy happiness" either never had it or just took it way too seriously. With enough money, you can, in fact, buy a lot of happiness, or rather, peace of mind, which is a very clearly marked and well-paved route to happiness.

Rich: How fast rumors go

Carrie called the other day and I grabbed the phone just as I was coming in from the garage. I dropped my purse at the foot of the stairs and sat down on a step to talk. No conversation with Carrie is ever short. Even her voicemails run three to four minutes.

Gunn: Journey to nursing excellence

Healthcare is undergoing a fundamental transformation, and nurses are in the midst of many of the changes taking place.

Cahn: A reintroduction of sorts

One of my "rules" about journalism is to always write a story with the assumption there is at least one person who has never read about the subject before. If you're writing about an ongoing debate over, say, school taxes, assume there's someone who has no idea what you're talking about.

Parker: Jenner’s coming-out party

WASHINGTON -- It wasn't quite "Call me Ishmael," but "Call me Caitlyn" made a whale of a splash.

Scully: Moving forward in the new economy

In visiting towns across South Carolina, I see unprecedented progress. Everywhere, it seems, city and county residents are organizing to improve their downtowns, their schools and their industrial parks to attract new business and ramp up economic development.

Walker: What about Bob?

The scruffy gentleman terrier mix had been at the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter for almost six months. Walter Crowe's team knew he was a great dog, but so far, Bob had always been passed over for other available dogs. Then, one loving Walter Crowe caretaker suggested Bob be sent up north for adoption through the local rescue Fostering Foster. That one suggestion leads to a happy ending. But first, some details.

Parker: Reality show jumps 19 sharks

WASHINGTON -- Several years ago, I heard Republican strategist Karl Rove give a most eloquent answer to a question about his faith, rendered here from memory:

Phillips: ‘It’s all about me’

Once again, I turn to the headlines of the day in my search for subject matter for this weekly column. By the way, hello again and welcome to my first column to appear in the Chronicle-Independent on a Wednesday. The "retirement" of Glenn Tucker has caused an adjustment in scheduling for our editorial columns, so mine has been moved from Fridays to Wednesdays. That's not a problem for me, but I will miss reading Glenn's work each week, as I'm sure you will, too.

Cahn: 2015 turning into year of changes

Every year brings something new, but, for me, 2015 is turning into one of those with a lot of changes. Of course, No. 1, I turned 50.

Rich: Vacation Bible School

Coming home one Sunday from the family dinner after church, I said, out of the blue, "I feel like we should volunteer for Vacation Bible School."

My Brain on NASCAR - June 1, 2015

It occurred to me after I watched the NASCAR Sprint All-Star Race on May 16, I have spent precious little time this season talking about the "all-stars" of our sport. Instead, I have stayed true to form and gone off on a series of odd tangents on things like inappropriate terms of endearment and Tiger Woods.

Tucker: Waylon’s advice hits the mark

My friend Waylon Fortenberry of Chesterfield County called me, all hot and bothered, about the big outlaw gang biker shootout a couple weeks ago in Waco, Texas.

File this column under "Progress." I guess. I remain a skeptic of much that is new and better and that includes the new bridges going ...
