America's uneasy 'browning'

White babies are no longer a majority of new births, according to the Census Bureau. America is quietly "browning," it is said, like dinner rolls in a warm oven. Yet, such change does not come without resistance from those who prefer to remain unbaked.

End of newspapers not happening here

The tough news came down Thursday morning: two more major American newspapers were cutting staff and cutting back on print editions: the (New Orleans) Times-Picayune and The Birmingham (Ala.) News.

A bartender named Slobo

My friend had been having a bad day, starting with absent-mindedly putting a tin of Altoids mints in his pocket before going through the metal detector at the airport. That had set the infernal machine screaming, which led to suspicion, which led to officers confiscating the little round silver flask he had in his carry-on bag.

KershawHealth is our hometown hospital

Local hospitals can be found in large cities and small towns or even in rural areas. It simply refers to hospitals in your locality or hometown. With growth in infrastructure and population, hospitals in small towns are also expanding to be able to deal with the demands of a growing and aging population. With this in mind, it's usually not difficult to find a hospital -- especially when there is one in your backyard.

Right-wing rage trips itself

I'll say this for the Supreme Court's decision to open the floodgates to big money by independent groups in political campaigns. It will be illuminating and, I am certain, often entertaining to watch the big money trip over itself.

Slick Willie references will do little to help Romney

The most awkward hot dog lunch in U.S. history must have taken place March 5, 2008. On that spring day four years ago, Sen. John McCain traveled to Washington, D.C., to enjoy a nice ball park frank at the White House before happily signing his presidential campaign death warrant.

The likability sweeps

‘They’re so stinkin’ cute!’

My wife told me to write this column -- not that I wouldn't have written it on my own, eventually -- but, men, we all know we should do what the wife says, right?

Senior recollections

I meet several times a year with the district's Student Cabinet, a group comprised of student government leaders from all four grade levels at each of our high schools. This group gives me a valuable perspective that I can't really get anywhere else. For example, the Student Cabinet was instrumental in the selection of new technology for our one-to-one computer program. It was actually pretty cool to watch. I asked the members of the Cabinet to come in and work with all the devices under consideration and give specific feedback. Their input was extremely insightful. This is a ...

Obama’s gay marriage gamble

As a political issue, same-sex marriage is like playing 3-D chess: Opponents of the idea need to move quickly because the game board is tilting slowly but steadily in favor of the other side.

A plan -- a volunteer

As many of you have read, a group of interested citizens from Camden recently took a road trip. Dennis Stuber, First Citizens, and Karen Eckford, NBSC, organized and hosted a very educational and enlightening day. Thank you.

Yesterday’s kitchen and the role of women

When I remember the kitchen in my teenage years, I know I have a much easier life. The kitchen had a large, one sided sink, a tiny icebox, which later became an even tinier refrigerator, and an oilcloth covered table with wooden chairs. The icebox required the services of the ice man and ran over quite frequently when I did not empty it. The refrigerator was eternally in need of defrosting, since no such thing as frostless or self-defrosting refrigerator existed. I hated the one sided sink, and, since I usually had to do the dishwashing -- company or family -- knew ...

The bad rep of for-profit colleges

For-profit colleges can't get no respect, at least not from employers. Which suggests that maybe they should be getting less generous taxpayer subsidies, too.

S.C. won’t be the next Ferguson

It is front page news all across the state and indeed nationwide -- a white policeman shot an unarmed black man in an incident at a filling station in Columbia. A dashboard camera in the police car captured much of what happen.

Why loyalty matters

When I think back on the days of my youth, that time when I had the privilege of traveling on the NASCAR circuit, it would be hard to pick a lesson learned that was more important than another.

Cry, you’re on hidden camera

WASHINGTON -- Without prior knowledge or intent, I recently was inducted into a club I had no interest in joining, especially in light of the $200 initiation fee.

The future is bright

I really like Camden and Kershaw County. In the nine months I've lived and worked here I've met some wonderful friends, acquaintances, news sources and coworkers. Those who have lived here all their lives may not realize what a jewel they have here. I have lived and worked in several places over the years and I know the difference.

Ten at the Top

This week more than 800 movers and shakers from 10 Upstate counties gathered in Greenville. It was an amazing event because of (1) what they said, (2) what they did not say and (3) what it means for the rest of the state.
