“Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day; teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.” This piece of ancient wisdom is so meaningful to us at Louie’s Kids this time of year. What we know 14 years later in the childhood obesity crisis is that it is more worthwhile to teach someone to do something than to do it for them.

Soon President Obama will pardon two turkeys to promote the turkey industry. Every one of us can exercise that same pardon power by choosing a nonviolent Thanksgiving observance. It’s a most fitting way to give thanks for our own life, health and happiness.

It was with great sadness I learned of the elimination of the College of Charleston swimming and diving team. More and more, college swimming and diving teams are being cut across the nation due to so called “budget constraints.” Clemson cut their program in 2012. Their excuse was Clemson could not afford to build a 50-meter pool in order for the …

It has become obvious that the two-party political system has been corrupted. Technology provides us with a simple and effective solution to the level of corruption that now exists between both parties and the press whose responsibilities have been compromised. The common denominator in this political corruption, and abdication of moral judgment …

I am often critical of our local and national government agencies for how slowly the wheels of bureaucracy turn and how long it often takes for positive action to occur. But I also believe in quickly giving praise when praise is due. Here is a great example of a super quick “government” response that had an immediate and drastic impact on the …

I am a bit disappointed at the ill-advised letter that was published in the Oct. 25 issue of the Post and Courier, as it questions the validity and purpose, either directly or indirectly, of the current Mount Pleasant Town Council and mayor. Last I looked, there were close to 80,000 people living in this town and less than 4,000 signatures, or …

I would like to take a moment to thank my fellow council members for supporting the efforts of residents of the north area of Mount Pleasant to place a roundabout rather than a traffic light on the corner of Bessemer Road and Park West Boulevard. As a resident of Park West, I drive that road nearly every day and endure long lines of traffic.

I took great offense to the recent cartoon titled “Useless Tools” (Opinions, Sept. 3, 2014) featuring images of a spiral ratchet screwdriver, crescent wrench and Al Sharpton. As a do-it-yourselfer, I have found both the Yankee screwdriver and adjustable wrench very valuable in certain circumstances.

Wanna know why the president of the College of Charleston should be an administrator and not an academic? Just review the recent decision made by the former president, Benson, as he overruled the athletic director, instead of firing him outright, based on outrageous conduct and abuse directed to student athletes on the basketball team. He resorted …
