Is the man with the chainsaw real?

Perhaps I should give Miley Cyrus all the credit for my column this month. Besides, she is the proverbial straw I've been waiting for. Suffice it to say I believe Miss Cyrus' repugnant performance on the recent VMA's acted as a wake-up call of sorts for many parents including myself. If you missed the show, don't spend the time viewing it on YouTube or some other social media. It will only add to the number of hits she's received and help prove her notion she was "making history." It's truly worthy of nothing. More, I ...

I was thumbing through my old "Class of 1965" high school yearbook one day when I was stopped dead cold by an autograph left by one of my teachers: "Dear Clarence: All I ask is that you mention my name when you win your first Pulitzer Prize. Don't forget. Mary Kindell."

District staff should get out the vote

I really applaud the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees for taking the initiative to get its school faculty and staff registered to vote and informed about the issues affecting public K-12 education.

The pain of writing … and dating

There are so many adages about writing -- write what you know, write from the heart, show them don't tell them and the list goes on, ad nauseum. I took a fair share of writing classes as an undergrad and I loved those classes. That's the most fun I've ever had as a student in a learning scene, I have no doubt.

Miley’s mandate: return to prudery

MOUNTAINTOP, N.C. -- If opinions differ on Miley Cyrus' raunchy performance during MTV's recent Video Music Awards, on one thing we all can agree: Miley loves her tongue.

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. In the portion of the book treating Sherman's march through South Carolina, the department named a military action with little or no combat, an "Affair." That name describes this event at Flat Rock.

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.
