The awesome English language

The rules for correct grammar usage are many. They, however, are equaled to or exceeded by the exceptions. No one believes me when I tell them I never write without a dictionary and thesaurus by my side; after all, I taught English for many years. One student asked me, "When are we going to do something else except grammar?" I am not sure I consoled her when I replied, "We will soon study literature and composition." She sighed with relief until I said, "However, grammar plays a part in both of these." I should have mentioned it is also a ...

The absolute, ultimate, most awesome best thing ever

There's no denying it, whether you want to admit it or not, the holidays are practically upon us. That realization tends to affect people in one of two ways: excitement or dread. I am more of the excitement school. I do like the holidays for the most part, with the exception that it leaves me pretty broke when it's all said and done.

The stories they told

My parents told great stories. I've told you that. How they would both weave long, intriguing tales from not much of a story or one that was so good to begin with that it took little embellishment.

What a difference a week can make. That point was driven home to me by three stories of care provided by KershawHealth during the middle of September. In the midst of all the discussion about healthcare and budgets, leadership and mission, it's easy to overlook the impact KershawHealth has on people's lives every single day.

We are your community watchdog

Last week was National Newspaper Week, the one week of the year during which -- with the Newspaper Association Managers' (NAM) leadership -- newspapers remind readers of their importance to their communities. This year, NAM's theme was "Your Community, Your Newspaper, Your Life," while the S.C. Press Association (SCPA) narrowed the focus even further to newspapers' role as community watchdogs.

The importance of the chipped bowl

Just as Tink started up the stairs, stepping slowly and carefully as he balanced a bowl and a cup of coffee to keep them from sloshing, I appeared around the corner. I paused, watched, and debated silently as to whether to speak.

Both sides wrong in SUV vs. motorcycle incident

The story about the New York motorcyclists and the man in the vehicle with his wife and his child is another sad story and example of a lack of respect for our fellow humans. A man driving a SUV was attacked by a group of motorcyclists after the man bumped into one motorcyclist and ran over another, leaving the second paralyzed, according to media reports.

The high cost of low tech

The news stories coming out of Washington these days are pretty much all bad -- government shutdowns, partisan bickering, and both parties' leaders acting more like children in a sandbox than statesmen in their august Capitol chambers.

A monumental mistake

WASHINGTON -- Losing a hard-fought battle confers no dishonor, but losing a badly chosen battle is embarrassing.

Stories of the federal shutdown

This week is National Newspaper Week but I felt that the federal government shutdown was more important and was struck by several things during the week I wanted to share.
