OPINION: Going back to 1995.     Many years ago, 1995 to be exact, I had hip surgery. This was also the year I met Dr. Albert T. Gilpin Jr., MD, pediatric orthopedic surgeon at McLeod Pediatric Orthopaedics in Florence, SC.  After my grandma noticed I was walking funny, our family doctor at the...
OPINION: It is Time to Show Our Resilience.         If you pay attention to global affairs, you know that increasing numbers of people believe US leadership in the world is coming to an end and the West more broadly is being eclipsed. I think these predictions are exaggerated, but they are not...
HOLIDAY: A Grinchy Christmas Wish.     Christmas really is a magical time. The music, the decorations, the vibe are evident of a joyous, family time. Radio stations and SiriusXM started playing Christmas music the day after Halloween…and for good reason. For many folks this year is just plain...
COLUMN: Invalidating The Election.   It’s a good bet that 81,056,268 United States voters will not go to the polls again to vote for President Joe Biden, once the Republicans are successful in nullifying the Constitution and declaring the General Election of 2020 invalid.

If the Left wins this attack, it will likely be the landmark beginning of the end for liberty and the City on a Hill envisioned by our Founding and early Fathers. The battle is not over Donald Trump, but America...

The community garden continues to grow five years later.     The Community Garden was created in the late summer and early fall of 2015. Rev. Dr. Blake Harwell of First Baptist Church, Rev. Steven Evans, then of Friendship AME, and Dr. Kendra Hamilton, an English professor at PC, met during the...
It takes no more time to see the good side of life than it takes to see the bad. - Jimmy Buffett   Thanksgiving is in the rearview, but we should live in a spirit of Thanksgiving each day. We are blessed.   2020 has been tough. The coronavirus pandemic has changed our lives. Masks, quarantines,...
EDITORIAL: We are Thankful.   So many times in this age of distancing and quarantining we fail to understand that we have much to be thankful for in our nation. It must have been similar that first Thanksgiving - a colony on the brink of extinction wondering what tomorrow would bring. From where...
More Than Ever a Time for Thanksgiving.     To say 2020 has been an interesting year is an understatement. To think of it as somewhat of a black hole is understandable but not totally correct. Even during elections, pandemics, and weather-related phenomena this remains a year of thanksgiving. The...
