Of two minds on sheriff issue

For half my life, I've wondered why in the world we still elect sheriffs in this country. I began wondering about that while working for a radio station 25 years ago in Dahlonega, Ga. Dahlonega sits in the -- no offense to anyone from there -- unfortunately named Lumpkin County.

Road Trip - Part 2 of 2

One week ago, a group of 25 Camden and Kershaw County leaders, business owners and others visited Rock Hill to see how that city transformed itself from a dying textile town to a sports tourism destination. The group -- including members of Camden City Council, candidates for city council and representatives from the Kershaw County School District -- visited sites such as Manchester Meadows (soccer), Cherry Park (baseball/softball) and Rock Hill Tennis Center. They also visited the new Riverwalk/Rock Hill Outdoor Center, which already sports a velodrome for Olympic-style cycling and, when completed, will have other amenities, including a YMCA.

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.
