Beyond sound bites

At the end of the most recent KershawHealth Board of Trustees meeting, I was approached by a television news reporter with a number of questions. I couldn't answer his questions at that time because they do not lend themselves to sound-bite answers, so I'd like to take this column to present a reasoned response to the questions.

Print or online, C-I here to stay

Once a week, probably around age 12, I rode my bike up and down Urbana Drive in the Wheaton-Glenmont neighborhood north of Washington, D.C., delivering copies of the Montgomery County Journal. My bike was black with newspaper baskets over the back wheel, and I once did a great end-over-end cartwheel off it while trying to impress a girl. I didn't get the girl, but did break and dislocate all four left hand fingers and split open my upper lip. No applause, please.

GOP searches for its missing white voters

Remember how Republican leaders vowed to improve their outreach to minorities after Mitt Romney's demographic disaster in November? Well, not so fast, amigos. A lot of folks in the Grand Old Party's conservative wing prefer to tap another group that let them down: the "missing white voters."

Are you tough enough?

Throw together a ridiculous amount of mud and water, hundreds of live wires, several ice water-filled dumpsters, cargo nets, 15-foot walls, and the product that remains is a sustained trend in America -- one of endurance events. Also known as obstacle races, this adrenaline-fueled sport has exploded in popularity. More than 1 million people this year are expected to enter races of this nature in the United States. Who knew mud, sweat and barbed wire could bring as much allure as it does misery. We are not talking about a fitness trend, but what Running USA calls the "Second Running Boom ...

My not so home improvement moment

Home improvement is something I would never describe myself as being "good" at. Some people have a natural ability for transforming a room or even an entire dwelling from something worn and dull into something bright and beautiful. I admire those types of people. I even envy them to an extent because I've never been of that sensibility; I've never had the eye or hand for interior design.

Summer in the city

In the new August 2013 Southern Living, in "The 10 Commandments of Southern Style," Editor M. Lindsay Bierman writes, "Thou Shalt Support Local Businesses: When I built my lake house, I could have ordered fixtures, cabinets, and hardware online, but I went to brick-and-mortar shops for some face-to-face help with details and logistics. It may cost more, but it's worth it when every purchase has the power to support -- or drain -- your local economy." Another Bierman commandment: "Thou Shalt Reinforce a Sense of Place: Historic neighborhoods that fell victim to the flurry of teardowns and massive additions in the ...

Recalling all mavericks

WASHINGTON -- As congressional leaders depart the nation's capital for a much-deserved five-week break, it is with a sense of relief and pride in accomplishment: a grand bargain budget that ends sequestration and makes rational spending cuts, a sane immigration reform package, and progress on a cost-cutting health care plan.

Dr. William Blanding’s ‘treasure’ map

Dr. Blanding wrote "This gold mine is on the land of Mrs. Kirkley on the east side of Big Lynches Creek-two miles from the Brewer Gold Mine. In 1830 some gold was found in a branch which in a short distance passes into Big L.[ynches] C.[reek]. Soon after this discovery it was found on a sand hill nearby. Some detached pieces, from 1 to 5 pie[ces] were found-others attached to the fragments of quartz.

Artificial intelligence, artificial life?

Some of the most fascinating stories in science fiction center around artificial intelligence, or AI. One of the most famous examples is Data from Star Trek: The Next Generation, who also fulfilled the Pinocchio trope of being an android who wanted to be more human.
