• Former Camdenite and equine enthusiast Sally Brown is now living in Hilton Head with her husband, Austin, but her many friends here are happy that she has had a race horse named after her, just as Austin did a couple years ago. Hall of Fame trainer Jonathan Sheppard and his wife Cathy named a filly for her earlier this year, and that horse is now in training.  We don’t know of any other “couples horses” which have been named for people, and it’s a fitting tribute to both of the Browns.

• Kershaw County voters went to the polls in large numbers last Tuesday, with nearly 26,000 votes being cast in the county. Election officials did a good job shepherding that many people through polling places, and though there were some lengthy lines, the county never experienced major problems, as did neighboring Richland County. We offer congratulations to all those who won Tuesday.

• Jared Loughner, the deranged man who shot Congresswoman Gabby Giffords and killed four other people in the process, was sentenced last week to life in prison without possibility of parole. After such tragic events occur, it’s easy to forget about the victims, but the sight of Giffords struggling so hard to perform small tasks is permanent proof of what a heinous crime was committed and what a horrid person Loughner is; he showed no emotion during the sentencing. We continue to hope for the best for Giffords as she faces each day.
