Of God and evolution

Color me dense, but I don't quite understand why everyone involved with science is having a hissy fit over the theory of intelligent design.

Getting it wrong on Plan B

WASHINGTON -- As a mom, I can't help but cringe.

Friends are the family you get to choose

Last week, two poignant events occurred in my life. The first was that I celebrated turning another year older, the second being the death of one of my very best friends' mother after a brutal battle with cancer. During the course of the week, I experienced a variety of conflicting emotions from utter heartbreak of losing someone close to me and also "celebration" that I was able to turn another year older. This was difficult due to the fact that some of the people closest to me, including myself, were grieving the loss of a life during a time that ...

Still moving foward

The present concern of the city council, working with the Camden Business Alliance led by Jonathan Bazinet and Patricia Richardson, remains our downtown. Without question, the Lowes/Walmart/Kmart shopping district on the west side of town will continue to thrive, as it should, but for most people driving into Camden off I-20, downtown Broad Street sets the tone of who we are and makes a statement about our community identity.

Monitoring ‘Generation M2’

"You've got mail!" Ah, the words so many of us associate with our first email accounts, our AOL email accounts. Hearing that proverbial voice almost produced an air of excitement in an otherwise monotonous day behind our desks, a welcomed distraction in the daily grind. Of course, a great deal has changed since the late '90s. My son was quick to tell me recently our AOL account was a dinosaur and we should really update as soon as possible. He belongs to what some call "Generation M2," highly tech-savvy children ages 8 to 18, whose lives are immersed in ...

Show some appreciation everyday

As the Chronicle-Independent's education reporter, April usually brings lots of "graduations" and ceremonies celebrating students' achievements from throughout their high school career. Last year, I determined, and confirmed this year, that if I ever have a child I will be one of those moms who cries at all of my kids events.

Sexuality in athletics

Earlier this week, NBA player Jason Collins came out to the public as being gay. His announcement made headlines on just about every news website and blog that I scanned over and, of course, Facebook and Twitter were taken over with personal opinions regarding the subject. I support Collins and commend him on his bravery for deciding to "come out of the closet" and to be honest with the public about his sexuality. I'm proud of how far we as a society have come that key professional athletes are able to be open about who they are and are ...

Big Al and the rabbit fish

More than 50 years ago, I spent many a day fishing with my maternal grandfather on Lake Wateree. He was known to all as Daddy John and the lake was always called The River. Daddy John knew the location of every Bream/Crappy-Bed and Catfish-Hole at The River. Amazingly, he knew all of the fish in the lake by name. He also knew a great big turtle that he affectionately called Big Al.

A few items from the grab bag

This is one of those weeks where I don't have any one thing in particular to write about. That is due in part, at least, to the fact that I was sick most of last week with a touch of bronchitis. What fun.
