‘You know nothing, John King’

In George R.R. Martin's fantasy series "A Song of Ice and Fire," a Wildling woman named Ygritte often tells one of the main characters "You know nothing, Jon Snow." She says it because Jon, a member of the Nightwatch guard, tends to jump to conclusions about her people based on the stories he's heard back in his home territory. Jon's mistakes are honest ones: he grew up hearing those stories, and it's hard to shake your upbringing. At least Jon's trying.

More about River Monsters host

Community support is insanely valuable in so many areas of our lives. Everyone has a dream, or at least something they hope to achieve, and more times than we may want to admit, achieving the dream requires some kind of support from the community, whether it be local, national or international. A lot of times our wildest dreams will force us to ask people for things that make us feel vulnerable in a way.

Dr. John Witherspoon Corbett

As we prepare to celebrate KershawHealth's Centennial during the week of April 21, it is fitting to remember those people who made the hospital a reality here in Camden. We have celebrated the Baruch family's contributions, but there were those who moved quietly behind the scenes to make the hospital a reality. One such man was Dr. John Corbett. Recently, the Corbett family photograph album was donated to the Camden Archives and Museum. The photographs of Corbett and his family bring such life to his story and once again allow us to see the face of a beloved ...

The day after

WASHINGTON -- You know the feeling. You wake up filled with dread but, still groggy, you can't put your finger on the reason.

Beauty and the beast

WASHINGTON -- The recent kerfuffle over a secret recording of Sen. Mitch McConnell's campaign strategy meeting, which focused on opposition research about a likely opponent, actress Ashley Judd, has divided observers into two groups.

‘In the darkest of times … turn on the light

With all the senseless and terrible things that have been occurring throughout our country, it's been difficult for me to keep my faith in humanity. I've always kept a quote from Oscar Wilde that reads "Everyone may not be good, but there is something good in everyone" close at hand. And I've also firmly believed in that… up until recently. Now I find it more difficult to believe that those who are behind destructive occurrences that affect innocent people have even a smudge of goodness buried deep within them.

Working in the schools

Last summer, I was meeting with some members of the district staff to talk about the upcoming United Way campaign. Every year since I arrived, I have tried to do something a little "out there" to generate some fun and interest in the campaign. I have sung alma maters at high school football games, gotten a buzz cut, been slimed and soaked, and taken pies in the face. I think it's been a good thing. The district's participation in the United Way campaign has been exemplary, which is of tremendous benefit to our community as a whole. So ...

FOX News case one to watch

Long-time readers can probably guess that I am not a fan of FOX News. Their entire idea of "fair and balanced" is ludicrous -- as would, admittedly, be such a claim from any of the cable news networks.

Not a ‘quota woman’

Margaret Thatcher never cared much for feminists and other progressive equal-rights movements. Yet she deserves to be honored by those of us who do, whether we like the result of her politics or not.

Legacy

What do your waking hours mean to the spinning earth? Can you tilt the axis, change the seasons, speed up or slow down the day or night? Can you manipulate tides or winds or clouds or storms? Do you have a part to play in the saga that is your life? Do you have a vote in the outcome of your own legacy?
