Thank you, veterans

Veterans Day was this week and here in Kershaw County, and all across the nation, we paused for a brief time to honor and thank those who have served in the military to defend our way of life and our freedoms and to establish or preserve those same ideals around the globe.

Who is your hero?

Veteran's Day celebrations over the course of this week reveal, in my opinion, some of the best of what rightly defines the love we have for our country and the respect and appreciation we have for our armed forces, past and present. We have all witnessed this week, through various modes, the inspiring tributes depicting heroic actions taken by our brave to protect our freedoms. It is not difficult to view the ones taking part in these gallant efforts to keep us safe as heroes and rightfully so. Our veterans demonstrate behaviors and decisions that are ethically and emotionally ...

Early forecast: More gridlock

WASHINGTON -- Is the government's gridlock about to be dislodged? Imagine the capital as a giant set of pulleys and levers, operating at cross purposes. In the end, the forces tugging President Obama and Republican leaders apart may be more powerful than the ones pushing them together.

Nothing in particular

No topic is heavy on my mind this week. There are a few new things that have got me excited, but not so excited that I can carry on about them in hundreds of words. I am excited that the Hallmark television network is showing Christmas movies, which in turn has me anticipating the day Lifetime and ABC Family start showing Christmas movies and programs as well.

The night shift

One of the most common reactions I get when people find out what I do is most people think I get paid to play. It's quite true that I enjoy my work and I never wish to go back to punching the 9-to-5 clock anymore than I wish to go to the same old boring place to work over and over again. Looking across the boundaries of genus and species, our representatives in nature all have a job to do that we call a niche. The jobs that are done in the natural world are as varied and as ...

The pieces of life’s puzzle

This happened years ago. Mama was alive then, so it's been seven or eight years. I hadn't thought about in almost that many years but when it came to mind the other day, I took to studying on it and how the circumstances and opportunities of life's journey can be so fascinating.

KershawHealth celebrates community

KershawHealth recently premiered "What Matters Most," our newest marketing campaign and a tribute to the relationships we have formed throughout Kershaw County. It was extremely gratifying to see nearly 300 people gather at the Little Theatre in Camden for the red carpet premiere of the commercials and the accompanying feature video. It was equally exciting to see folks from all across the county and all walks of life united by the chance to see their community celebrated.

Lena Dunham’s bare, naked truth

WASHINGTON -- Lena Dunham, creator of the sensational HBO series "Girls" -- and now the object of overwrought child abuse accusations by boys on the right -- seems the perfect antidote to election fatigue.

Support your local merchants

I generally agree with the phrase "shop local," and I do so whenever possible. In a worldwide economy, especially in the modern world of online shopping, nearly anything can be purchased from anywhere and delivered right to your door.

What is The ALPHA Center?

So many people have told me that they don't know what The ALPHA Center, is that I decided to write a column about it. The ALPHA Center, an acronym for "All Life's Problems Have Answers," offers an important response to local citizens wrestling with substance abuse; addictions to alcohol, drugs and tobacco; anger management problems; and a familiar raft of behavioral issues.

A fall full of fungi

My students often ask me if the items we find in the woods are edible. I answer in the affirmative, explaining that anything they can fit down their esophagus is edible. The question is whether the item of interest will kill you. I get asked this a lot about mushrooms. Members of this kingdom are especially difficult to identify, and for every safe species, there is another, almost identical species that could be deadly. And so it is my standard practice to avoid consumption of any mushroom I find outside of the supermarket shelf.
