Two hard-nosed law enforcement officers have turned the June 12 Republican primary for sheriff into one of the hottest political races in years.

Sheriff L.L. “Hector” DeBruhl, a 24-year-incumbent, is seeking a seventh term; he says it will be his last. Debruhl’s campaigning on his record and his family name and he’s relying on his popularity and high profile to win him another four year term.

His challenger is Camden Police Capt. Jack Cobb, who’s put 15 years in at the Camden Police Department after retiring from the military. Cobb, a Vietnam veteran, says drug enforcement is lacking in the county and he wants to wage war on drugs with more modern equipment, specialized deputies, and consolidated services.

Cobb also questions DeBruhl’s health.

Both are popular, Christian family men who like hunting dogs. Both are experienced law enforcement officers. And both want to be elected sheriff. 


Lashanna Robinson, a rising senior at Camden High School, will attend Palmetto Girl’s State at the University of South Carolina.

Girl’s State is designed to demonstrate the operation of state government. During the week, participants will visit the State House and many other points of interest. Girls from throughout the state will be in attendance.

Lashanna is the daughter of Mrs. Edith Coleman.
