Put stop to establishment politics   Looking at the Republican primary ballot for the June 9 election, I see that my neighbor Boyd Gregg is challenging the status-quo candidate, Josh Whitley. Finally, we have someone whose career and connections in no way benefit from serving Berkeley County...
These last few weeks — the weeks that represent life since coronavirus entered our lexicon, homes, and business lives — created a new normal. And, as we begin reopening businesses and government services again, it’s time to readjust to the next new normal that exists somewhere between before...
Are you agreeable? Conscientious? Open to experience? Do you consider yourself an introvert, an extrovert, or perhaps an ambivert? One hundred years ago the first wave of personality tests reached the marketplace, providing us with a new tool by which to answer the most urgent of questions: Who am...
There is an area at the mouth of Beresford Creek and Clouter Creek that we call home. And one of the silver linings during our extended stay-at-home-cation is that we’ve been able to take advantage of time on the creek with a nightly happy hour.

Questioning coronavirus measures Why is our government not consistent when it considers the number of deaths from various causes?
