Regional tastes

Camden native Ford Graham, who's going to live in Germany as head of South Carolina's European industrial recruitment efforts, says he's going to convert natives of that country to boiled peanuts.

Hard times were really easy!

When older people talk about the Depression years -- before, during, and after -- they always talk about hard times, what they did not have. Actually, they have seemingly forgotten the positive sides. People can either remember the good times or the bad. In reality, hard times were really easy.

Camden in good company

At the recent National League of Cities conference, Leslie Wollack, program director for federal relations, placed Camden in "good company" with other cities nationwide when he noted the importance of local infrastructure. As Camden continues to operate with a balanced budget, I believe infrastructure is a primary focus.

Drafted into the Mommy Wars

Oops! Just as President Barack Obama's campaign was enjoying a big favorability advantage with women, a prominent female ally tripped over an old unwritten rule: Lay off your opponent's kinfolk.

A tradition that shouldn’t change at Augusta

What happened to all the camo shirts and beer helmets at the Masters this year? A guy named Bubba just won the thing, right?

Taming 'Taxmageddon'

Many Americans are breathing a sigh of relief as they finally managed to file their income-tax returns. No need to worry about taxes again for another year, right?

Whispering campaigns

WASHINGTON -- All it takes is one little twit. Or a tweet, as the case may be -- not that the two are mutually exclusive.

Another flawed silver bullet

A few weeks back, I was honored to be present to see the Baron DeKalb Elementary School Improvement Council receive the Dick and Tunky Riley School Improvement Council Award. What made it a particular privilege was the fact that former South Carolina Governor and U.S. Secretary of Education Dick Riley was there to present the award. The opportunity to meet him was truly memorable for me.

Romney’s woman woes

Mitt Romney's trying to talk his way out of his gender gap, but, take it from me, women like guys who listen. My wife told me that.

A whispering campaign

We've come a long way from President Theodore Roosevelt's famous saying "Speak softly and carry a big stick." President Barack Obama's policy apparently is to whisper slyly and compromise our security.

Zimmerman’s arrest the right thing

I have held back on writing about the Trayvon Martin case in Sanford, Fla., a few miles north of Orlando. The fallout from 17-year-old Martin's death at the hands of George Zimmerman has been fraught with charges of police corruption; hand-wringing over Florida's self-defense law; and, of course, racial overtones.

Rediscovering entrepreneurship in all organizations

Everyone agrees that entrepreneurship is a good thing. But what exactly is entrepreneurship?

An old narrative that never dies

Hollywood's version of Harper Lee's brilliant novel "To Kill a Mockingbird" turns 50 this year, which offers President Barack Obama a rare opportunity. For once, he can venture, however cautiously, near the touchy topics of race and justice without risking too much of a political backlash.

Sad, but true, but changing

Earlier this week I said to my co-workers, "I don't know how people stay married for so long; I get tired of people after a few months." They laughed, I laughed; it's sad, but true.

Owens: Things we take for granted

As much as I love Christmas, I have to give Thanksgiving just as much acknowledgement -- unlike a lot of television networks.

Gov. Haley in India -- good, travel more

Gov. Haley recently took an 11-day trip to India. There are some who are grumbling, calling her trip just another post-election junket by a politician.

Parker: The Cosby Show

WASHINGTON -- By now, most Americans probably have formed an opinion about what comedian Bill Cosby did or didn't do sexually to or with at least 16 women beginning in the 1960s.

Cooking Thanksgiving food with a friend

It started accidentally. Some good ideas and memorable moments are like that. They aren't planned. They're born, bringing with them an ability to nudge a way naturally into our lives and become a tradition.

The start of something (really) big

Pope calls for family resurrection

WASHINGTON -- News that Pope Francis will visit the U.S. next year for the triennial World Meeting of Families brings elation to Catholics, excitement to pope watchers -- and perhaps a little chagrin to some who too soon interpreted Francis' broad compassion as a precursor to doctrinal changes related to marriage.

I don’t celebrate ‘Turkey Day’

This space in the Friday edition of the Chronicle-Independent each week is where I am allowed to share my personal stories, opinions and basically whatever is on my mind as I write this column. I know I complain about a lot of things and, eventually, the time may come when I have covered everything that aggravates me and the rest of the columns in my career won't be the kind where you can imagine me pounding my fist on my desk as you read them. But, if that day ever does come, it's a long way off.

Camden’s African-American corridor

In 2008, a group of graduate students from the University of South Carolina's Public History Program produced a study entitled, "The Camden African-American Heritage Project." It was the product of a student group assignment conducted in 2005-06. The students were assisted by many Camden residents in their search for the history of African-Americans in Camden from the Colonial period through the era of civil rights. Though able to spend only one semester researching and writing, the students pulled together an admirable overview of the lives of African-Americans here. In their final recommendations they suggested, among other things, that an ...
