  • Where there’s smoke, there’s ice cream!

    Ask a second grader to complete a familiar English phrase, and you might get the “right” answer, or you might hear something really fun.

    At Indian Land Elementary recently, one 8-year-old in Lindsey Scheppegrell’s class knew, for example, that jealousy is the green-eyed… “monster.”

    This is the age when kids have heard or read enough that some common phrases can start registering in their brains.

  • Editor's Column: Parnell’s big moment in the comedy vortex

    Archie Parnell, one of the 14 candidates running for the congressional seat vacated by Mick Mulvaney, got a bit of national publicity last week to help him stand out from the crowd.
    Boy, did he ever!
    Fair warning. If you’re not a fan of crude anatomical humor, do not check this out.
    It happened on comedian Samantha Bee’s political satire show “Full Frontal With Samantha Bee” on TBS. She has an audience of about 2.5 million, not far behind the 3 million or so who watch Stephen Colbert and Jimmy Fallon on the big networks.

  • Column: We need Trump to undo Obama’s horrible policies

    This is my response to the columns by Jeremy Miller and Michael Jedson in Wednesday’s paper, which criticized Dr. Brooks Walker’s support for President Trump.
