Remembering Sept. 11

Ten years ago, I strolled into the offices of the Beaufort Gazette around mid-morning. I had been up late covering some government meeting or another, and had slept in, so I really didn't have a clue as to what had happened less than an hour and a half prior.

9/11 unity is just a memory

If we had another terrorist attack like Sept. 11, would Congress sing "God Bless America" on the Capitol steps like they did 10 years ago? Or would too many lawmakers be too busy drawing up articles of impeachment against President Barack Obama?

What happened to our unity?

Publisher's comments: Horse industry benefits Camden

In the Aug. 31 Chronicle-Independent, we announced the launch of The Camden Horse magazine. In one short week, the positive feedback from those in the horse community has been nothing short of astounding. Due to the extremely close ties this newspaper has shared over the years with the local equine industry, this reaction is particularly gratifying. Incidentally, the Chronicle-Independent traces its roots back to its founding in 1889, 122 years ago. Coincidentally, this time-frame occurred almost exactly with the arrival of the horse scene here in Camden. As a result, we have always made it a part of our business ...

City takes step in right direction on work sessions

Seven or eight years ago, I spent a good chunk of time following a legal fight involving the city of Camden over Kirkwood Common. At one point, I'd attended a circuit court hearing on the matter and then waited months to learn the judge's decision.

Labor Day blues

The most recent unemployment rate for Kershaw County indicates that we have experienced three straight years of double-digit unemployment: 10.5 percent in July 2011, 10.6 percent in July 2010, and 10.8 percent in July 2009.

Why class reunions matter so much

Facing a class reunion can be daunting enough to make a teetotaler crave a bracing cocktail. But fear not. It's worth the effort. For at least one sweet, nostalgic night you can revisit the best parts of high school without worrying about the silly stuff.

No such thing as bad chocolate

Don't take this personally, but if you don't like chocolate, you're a little bit weird.

Laugh, don't cry

Is she still here? I can't say for sure. What odd map does she follow? Does she feel secure?

Give the King Memorial a chance

It is poignantly appropriate that the Martin Luther King Memorial has stirred controversy. After all, so did Dr. King.

A scorned South Carolina hero

April 11, 2014 was a very important day in the history of South Carolina. Few people noticed that anything much happened – but I would argue that this was the day we as a state did two very important things.

The Colbert Report

WASHINGTON -- In selecting Stephen Colbert to replace David Letterman as host of the "Late Show," CBS has waged war on America's heartland -- or so proclaims that Palm Beach font of heartland mirth, Rush Limbaugh.

Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes

Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.

Beautiful in a different way

She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.

‘NEGU’

Life requires courage. Courage doesn't always roar like a lion. Sometimes courage is a quiet voice, unassuming in all its resilience and fortitude, the gentle giant among us, the self-effacing titan in our presence. Remember the line, or was it a show on television -- "kids say the darndest things?" For the moment, I'm going to change it to say, "Kids do insanely courageous things." I always find it an amazing occurrence when certain people or groups of people are put in our paths. They dissect our "straight" lines for reasons often unknown to us. Most of us just ...

Time again to grab from the mailbag

If you're glad spring is here and you're looking back on this winter as one of the worst ever, you're right. But if you want a few weather statistics that are really cruel, try these on for size:

The bigger they are…

I have been watching with great interest this week the news reports on the trial of former Chesterfield County Sheriff Sam Parker. As many of you know, I came here from Pageland in Chesterfield County in late December and when I first went to work there in early 2011, Parker was the sheriff. So, I knew Parker well through my work.

Southern charm

WASHINGTON -- After writing close to 3,000 columns, I've learned that people sometimes read what they're looking for, often as a result of a headline, rather than what I wrote.
