  Live PD brought us together. Marett is the youngest of our four grandchildren and the only girl. Faithful readers will find this hard to believe, but I have trouble relating to females. I’m such a guy’s guy and all. Hair-dos and hair-don’ts, dresses, bows, open-toed shoes. All these things are...
  The editor: Like many others, I am looking forward to the start of another Red Devil year and seeing our Red Devils in action. As I wait in anticipation, we need to remind ourselves of some simple truths.  First, we all want to see our Red Devils succeed, but more importantly, we want to see the...
  The Editor: In "A Bike Path on Broad Street," the Chronicle Editorial Team hit the nail on the head, noting numerous reasons why cycling lanes were the "linchpin" for a revitalized Broad Street.  When I was a Furman student back in the late 1980's, there was a small, forgettable town just north...
  “And they’re off!” And much like stallions and fillies at the start of a race, another school year has begun. As I write this article, we are a single day past Hump Day (i.e., Thursday) in the first full week of school. Typically, I hate starting a year on a Monday. The first week of school is...
