On this last day of 2010, we come to the last part of a look back at the year as it comes to a close. A groundbreaking event heralded change to come. An election heralded even more change (while keeping some other things the same). It is sometimes said that we can never know where we're going until we know where we've been. 2011 promises to ...
When President Barack Obama signed the Omnibus Lands Bill in March 2009, it marked another step forward in a years-long process to turn the Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site and the Battle of Camden site into a joint national military park.
The lazy, hazy days of summer were -- well, hazy and hot with temperatures sometimes hitting the century mark. They were anything but lazy, however, as the news barely slowed down in the late spring and early summer.
The Camden Police Department (CPD) is looking for a 24-year-old woman officers say stabbed her 33-year-old boyfriend at a West DeKalb Street motel.
It's cliché to say it was the best of times and it was the worst of times, but when it comes to year-end reviews that cliché also serves as truth. 2010 was beset with tragedies and controversies but also rewarded with triumphs. For some in the political arena, 2010 marked the end of an era. For others, it was only the beginning.
Kaptin, Siren, Kare Bear, Venom and Professor. They sound like superhero names. And they are certainly heroes in my book.
Two more suspects have been arrested in connection with the Dec. 12 shooting incident in Antioch Baptist Church's cemetery.
Is there a serial arsonist in the Mt. Pisgah and Cassatt areas? Are there two?
Jim Matthews will have a busy day Tuesday, Jan. 4, 2011. At noon, he will be sworn in by Circuit Court Judge G. Thomas Cooper at First Baptist Church of Camden as Kershaw County's new sheriff. During that ceremony, Matthews will sign memorandum of understanding -- mutual aid agreements -- with other sheriffs and police chiefs. That will be immediately followed by a luncheon at the Robert Mills Courthouse with many of ...
At least three men are being sought by the Camden Police Department (CPD) for robbing a store employee at gunpoint as she was making a night deposit at a DeKalb Street bank Saturday night.
To so many people here in Kershaw County he is "Vincent."

I did not know Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) Deputy Rob Evans, who passed away last week. I knew him, but only in the sense that I spoke to him a few times when the two of us happened to be at KCSO headquarters at the same time.
