A Little known Civil War ‘Affair’ at Flat Rock

As a part of the centennial of the Civil War, in 1959 the South Carolina Archives Department published Military and Naval Operations in South Carolina, 1860-65.

My sons’ Star Trek education

For many pre-teen boys (and those of us who are ... um ... much older) science fiction TV shows and movies are exciting fare that are almost required watching. How can a young man (or older one) get through life without knowing who Capt. James Tiberius Kirk, Han Solo, Marty McFly or The Doctor are?

The most important meal of the day

I'm not what most people would call a "morning person." I'm not cheerful and talkative in the mornings. I like to sleep as late as I possibly can before waking up to get ready for the day. When I was in college and my friend, Elena, had to share my room for three months one summer, I made a rule about mornings: do not talk to me until after 11 a.m.

‘I Have a Dream’ lives 50 years on

Depending on what story you want to believe, I was either named for the bird Martin (likely a purple one) or for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. There's also the more Jewish name origin, in that I may have been named for a female relative whose name was Matilda (or something close to that).

Columbia to Colombia -- a digital journey

Last week, I took a trip to Colombia, South America, with my son, J.P., a senior at the University of South Carolina (USC) in Columbia, S.C. In addition to being a great father-son trip that we will both long remember, a number of things happened along the way that reminded me of how the Internet and new technologies are changing the world -- and how we in South Carolina need to understand this new and changing world if we don't want to be left behind.

Moment of Nature - Aug. 23, 2013

"Out of sight, out of mind" applies very well to the root systems of trees. The parts of a tree within the upper portions of soil are vital to tree health, but hidden from the human eye. The causes of root damage are many, the effects are significant and treatment options are limited.
