Kershaw County Council already named Camden's Woody Cleveland and Don Terrell, along with county resident Ray McElveen to the commission. The two citizens named by city council will have the task of choosing the last member from either Bethune or Elgin.

Old letter a sign of the times, self

Every now and then, we clear out the cobwebs of our lives. My mother's been going through this for a while now and, as she did, came across this 25-year-old letter from me. It appears typed, since it includes hand-written edits in my handwriting. I thought it would be fun to share, since it not only offers me a bit of self-reflection, but a peek at life back in the '80s.

Road Trip - Part 1 of 2

Rock Hill in York County may have 10 times Camden's population in three times the geographic size, but it may be a success story for Camden and Kershaw County to emulate.

City commission certifies third referendum petition

The city of Camden's Municipal Election Commission recently certified a third petition to hold a November referendum on whether to build a sports complex. Commission Chairman Bruce Little reported to Camden City Council during its meeting Tuesday night that of the 1,211 signatures on the petition, 1,037 were found to be valid.

Little said the commission certified the petition at its April 13 meeting.

Zimmerman’s arrest the right thing

I have held back on writing about the Trayvon Martin case in Sanford, Fla., a few miles north of Orlando. The fallout from 17-year-old Martin's death at the hands of George Zimmerman has been fraught with charges of police corruption; hand-wringing over Florida's self-defense law; and, of course, racial overtones.
