Phillips: For those who truly need it

I read with great interest last week news reports about a lawmaker in Missouri proposing tighter restrictions on what food products would be allowed to be purchased using an Electronic Benefits Transfer (EBT) card. The EBT card is the modern-day equivalent of what is commonly called “food stamps,” and is a government-provided program for people of lower income to acquire food. EBT cards have a benefit amount credited to them each month and at the store function the same as a debit or credit card.

Richardson: Golf in Camden

Richardson: Golf in Camden

Springtime in the South comes with a guarantee of two things: great clouds of pollen and azaleas in full bloom. Springtime in the golf world means it’s finally time for the Masters. My husband, an avid, albeit average golfer, was glued to the television when the Masters was being played. It was nirvana for him when his spring break fell during Masters Week. He could watch it every minute it was on the air. Of course, he was watching and appreciating the game of golf. I, on the other hand, was gawking at the golf course at Augusta every ...

Tatum: Stylin’ and profilin’

You think you’re alone on the highway. You’re sure of it -- not a soul in the rear view, not a glimmer on the horizon. Not even a billboard or bridge abutment.

Arrants: ‘So, how’s Texas?’

“So, how do you like living in Texas?” Overwhelmingly, that is the question I’ve been asked repeatedly by both people I interact with here and back in South Carolina. Most pose the question in an uncomplicated way, often wanting to know what I like about Texas and what I might miss from South Carolina. Some follow up with another, more in-depth question about what I think is similar and/or different about the two states. Well, let’s start with at the top and work from there.

Cahn: Does Tsarnaev deserve death penalty?

We journalists are, usually, taught not to use questions as headlines. This time, it’s really to ask myself the question: Does convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar “Jahar” Tsarvnaev deserve the death penalty?

Rich: Miss Elinor’s thank you

It often amazes me how many words of kindness and encouragement I receive for the stories I tell. Often, a reader will write, “You don’t know me, but I feel that we are friends.”

Gunn: Joint replacement center offers new option

When the Joint Replacement Center at KershawHealth opened last month, it was a truly collaborative effort resulting in significant benefits for those having total joint replacement surgery. Today, the majority of patients will have surgery, begin therapy the same day and return home on the third day to continue their rehabilitation in the comfort of home. They will return to the things that mean the most to them -- home, family, work, and favorite activities -- sooner and further along in their recovery than before. Already, those who have been through the new program are excited about the change. They recognize the ...

Tucker: Union fights an academy’s ‘Success’

Like most people, I’m interested in the public school system of this county and state. Often my interest goes beyond that, to other areas of the country, especially urban school systems, which have often struggled.

WASHINGTON -- The new tell-all, “The Residence,” featuring intimate anecdotes collected from past and current White House staff members, is absolutely delicious -- and utterly lacking in nutritious content.

Phillips: The mysterious masked man

Those of you who are regular readers of my weekly offering here know I am a big fan of older TV shows. To me, the phrase “they just don’t make ‘em like that anymore” truly applies in so many cases.
