WASHINGTON -- My inner Pollyanna was basking in blissfulness, rolling in the hay of righteous rhetoric, backstroking through the sunny sibilance of aspiration.
Since last October, I've spent part of my time in another world. For about three months, I reread the massive fantasy series The Wheel of Time by Robert Jordan. The final book, A Memory of Light, came out Jan. 8 and I was smart -- and loyal -- enough to pre-order it from our local bookstore in order to take advantage of a pretty great sale price.
Sometimes the leaders of the National Rifle Association don't seem to know how to take "yes" for an answer.
I'm not a Beyonce-hater … but I'm tired of Beyonce. I think she is a great performer and singer and I love some Destiny's Child, but I'm over her.
Nothing irks me more than to see a tree improperly pruned. Well, improper planting and no watering of new trees irks me too, but I'll save that for another time. Today I'd like to focus on the basics of tree pruning and next month I'll talk about utility line pruning. Being a hands-on person it's usually easier for me to show how-to rather explain how-to but I'll try. There's just so much to explain about the subject that there are text books and day-long seminars specifically dedicated to tree pruning so bear with me.
A couple weeks ago we talked about the Internet and the opportunities it's opened for everyone around the globe.
President Barack Obama's critics are shocked, shocked to hear him sound in his second inaugural address like what he is, a liberal progressive. One wonders what they expected.
If anyone bet money in the off-season that two brothers would face off in the Super Bowl, the name Manning would have certainly come to mind first.
Recently, the Congress approved the so-called "fiscal cliff" agreement. I voted against the final version of deal. The reason is pretty simple: the agreement raised spending. Again. Indeed, its passage seems to reaffirm a disturbing truth about today's Washington: compromises always lead to more spending, more debt, and too often, more taxes.
A lot of Camden residents and others who pass through Camden had a rough time of it last week when CSX Railroad closed not one, but two crossings in Dusty Bend to replace a 2,000-foot section of track.
NEW YORK -- To the world-weary, Lance Armstrong's confession to Oprah was just one more in a series.
The New Year brings new beginnings and a fresh start for many. It is with that in mind that I want to mention one of the great new programs in Kershaw County. The Kershaw County Youth Arbitration Program, which was first introduced in February of 2012, has been a fantastic addition to our county.
The beginning of the new session of the South Carolina General Assembly will undoubtedly bring renewed efforts to pass school voucher legislation. Like fire ant hills in the summer, some new version of voucher legislation pops up every year in Columbia. Proponents package it differently from year to year, but the basic premise when you strip away the slick marketing is that public funds would be used to support private schools.
My heartfelt condolences go out to the family and friends of Aaron Swartz, who took his own life Friday at age 26.
Few things are as juicy as a high-profile trial involving wealthy celebrities, millions of dollars and accusations of dastardly deeds.
I think I may have a new hero.
