She’s back

No couple in America stirs emotions like Bill and Hillary Clinton, so when she showed up at an Iowa political festival acting more and more like a presidential candidate, it caused quite a flap among those who have begun such movements as "Ready For Hillary," and also among those who'd rather see anybody than her become president. But it proved one thing: that even after decades in the spotlight of the political arena, she still commands attention.

Many life milestones are out of millennials’ reach

Musings from a Cardinals, Cowboys, Chiefs, Rams, Panthers, Dolphins and Gamecocks fan

It sure has felt good to have some cooler days lately. After a long, hot summer, it's nice to know the more pleasant breeze of a pre-autumn day. I have heard many people say similar things in the past week or two, and then there's usually also a follow-up comment about how it won't be long until we're complaining about how cold it is or there's snow and ice on the roads. All true.

Give me air!!

Hot, hot, hot! We're on the second day of 99 degrees-plus-the-heat-index weather. I'm on my wide front porch on the shady side of the house with a woven Palmetto frond fan in my hand. Back and forth, waving steadily. It helps a little -- fanning my sweat glistened cheeks and neck. The ladies a century ago would have said they were "glowing." They used these fans too -- in fact my older friend bought dozens of them for her daughter's summer wedding at Salem Black River Presbyterian years ago -- before they put in air conditioning. She gave me this ...

Connecting classrooms to life at Lugoff-Elgin High

New Lugoff-Elgin High School Principal Worth Thomasson wants students to understand that what they learn in the classroom can be applied to life outside the classroom.

The diesel option

We have noted before with a degree of perplexity that diesel automobiles that get great fuel mileage and are wildly popular in Europe have never been promoted here in the United States by automakers. Finally, we're glad to see that is changing, and the public is responding in a big way. Volkswagen is now aggressively pushing its Passat TDI diesel model, which can deliver up to 50 miles per gallon in highway driving. Auto industry analysts have said for more than three decades that Americans wouldn't latch onto diesels, partly because of the disastrous results back in the ...

Summer is coming and so is the INVISTA blood drive. June 5 is the day when the American Red Cross bloodmobile will be in the parking lot waiting for your gift of life.

Noted and passed - May 14, 2012

• With the Major League Baseball season in its infancy, we're struck by one fact about the New York Yankees: the team must have the biggest -- we're talking in terms of physical size here -- pitching staff in the history of the league. Excluding Hiroki Kuroda, at 6-1 and 190 pounds the dwarf of the group, New York's starting rotation averages nearly 6-6 in height and 257 pounds. Hurler C. C. Sabathia is the biggest of the group at 6-7, 290. We don't know how well they'll pitch this year, but we doubt you'll see many ...

Creepy nation

Actor George Clooney is handsome and personable in the style of Hollywood male stars of the 1930s/1950s, which is a relief. But what a nation of creeps we have become. He is giving a supper at his home for the benefit of President Barack Obama's re-election, which, it is estimated, will reap $15 million from people anxious to say that they have shared a salad with the actor and gazed at the president. This spectacle is shameful to contemplate and it makes one wonder what kind of a country we have become when empty-headed vainglorious non-entities pay good ...

Of two minds on sheriff issue

For half my life, I've wondered why in the world we still elect sheriffs in this country. I began wondering about that while working for a radio station 25 years ago in Dahlonega, Ga. Dahlonega sits in the -- no offense to anyone from there -- unfortunately named Lumpkin County.
