  Brace yourself.   You’re about to read some good things about President Donald J. Trump in a newspaper.   I’ll refer to our President as President Trump in this column, not just Trump. It’s disrespectful to the office to just use a leader’s last name.   I’ll have to lead with a disclaimer....
  Back in my days, I have to admit it, I was a sports parent. My three played sports - baseball, basketball, volleyball and swimming. I was a sandlot football and baseball player, and rec league basketball player in my days growing up on the Isle of Palms. Never good enough to go farther, much to...
  I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but school will be back in session before you know it! In homes throughout your neighborhood, there are parents who are making sure they’ve bought their child enough school supplies, teachers who are putting the finishing touches on their lesson plans, and...
  Two years ago, South Carolina received the worst financial news in its history. Santee Cooper and its partner SCE&G were abandoning construction of two nuclear reactors in Fairfield County, leaving the utilities $4 billion and $5 billion in debt, respectively. For most of the following two...

So, here goes: Congratulations are in order for District 56 on a very successful renovation of Wilder Stadium. There will be an unveiling ribbon-cutting...
  Successful living involves risk-taking. Over 300 people rejected Colonel Sanders’ special recipe for Southern fried chicken before he received a “yes.” Today, because of his persistence, KFC boasts 20,000 restaurants in 125 countries.  Reflecting on my youth, I wish the idea of taking calculated...

My family and I are now geocachers.   Geocaching (noun, jee•ow•ka•shuhng): the recreation activity of hunting for and finding hidden objects by means of GPS coordinates posted on a website.   I first...
