‘You know nothing, John King’

In George R.R. Martin's fantasy series "A Song of Ice and Fire," a Wildling woman named Ygritte often tells one of the main characters "You know nothing, Jon Snow." She says it because Jon, a member of the Nightwatch guard, tends to jump to conclusions about her people based on the stories he's heard back in his home territory.

‘People really want change’

It's official: State Sen. Vincent Sheheen, of Camden, is launching his second campaign in three years to become South Carolina's next governor. Sheheen, a Democrat, ran in 2010 against current Republican Gov. Nikki Haley, losing by only four percentage points. The official announcement came Wednesday, the day before "City of Camden Day at the South Carolina State House," during which he received the key of the city from Mayor Tony Scully. In return, Sheheen read a joint proclamation marking "City of Camden Day" in the Senate chamber as did State Rep. Laurie Slade Funderburk in the House chamber.

Awards, treatment plant, Cup highlight council meetings

It's not often that one city government agency bestows an award on an employee of another in the same city. That's what happened at Camden City Council's April 9 regular meeting when the Camden Fire Department (CFD) paid tribute to Camden Police Department (CPD) Patrolman J.R. Scott.

FOX News case one to watch

Long-time readers can probably guess that I am not a fan of FOX News. Their entire idea of "fair and balanced" is ludicrous -- as would, admittedly, be such a claim from any of the cable news networks.

Books offer real, alternate histories

Two books recently transported me to the past, one real, the other not. Both featured late President Richard Nixon, one prominently, the other not so much. They provided me with food for thought … of where we have been, where we are now and where we could be.

‘Reconciliation’ unveiled

Blue skies and more spring-like temperatures than recently greeted an overflow crowd Friday afternoon at the Camden Archives and Museum to witness the unveiling of life-size statues of Camden natives Bernard Baruch and Larry Doby. Estimates placed those attending at more than 200, with many standing after that number of seats filled up under a large tent near the edge of Broad Street.

The civil right of marriage equality

Growing up the way I did, I couldn't help but to learn the fundamental truth that we are all human beings with the fundamental rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. I've lived in too many places, and been counted as a minority enough times, not to realize that it's always wrong -- always -- to believe that anyone's claims to those fundamental rights are inferior to anyone else's.

Camden budget leaves out tech village

You can't always have what you want, at least not when it comes to budgeting. Whether a personal, business or government budget, there are some things you just have to leave out. That was the case during a March 20 Camden City Council budget work session.
