• A major tip of the C-I hat to newly installed District 5 Kershaw County Councilman Dennis Arledge, briefly hospitalized in recent days and, therefore unable to attend his first council meeting. It would have been easy for anyone in his situation to ask to take his oath of office at council's next meeting. Instead, he arranged to take the oath, with his wife at his bedside, from former Councilman Gene McCaskill on Jan. 13. Later that afternoon, at the official swearing-in ceremony, those gathered to see others take their oaths applauded enthusiastically when shown a picture of Arledge taking ...

Rich: The world’s view of ‘being cool’

My parents, according to the world's definition of "cool," were not. Neither drank nor did either ever possess a credit card. Groceries and clothing were paid for in cash, utilities paid by check, and the only monthly payments they ever allowed themselves were a mortgage for a house, a short-term loan for another farm, and a couple of cars bought, over time, and paid for quickly.

Editorial: Equine park arena

The horse industry in Kershaw County took another sizeable leap forward this week thanks to the awarding of a $250,000 grant to fund a second covered show ring at the South Carolina Equine Park (SCEP) in the Charlotte Thompson community. This is a welcome addition to an already thriving facility and should help funnel more tourism and visitor dollars into Camden's and Kershaw County's business community.

Rampell: Greece’s long-term debt crisis

WASHINGTON -- Greece looks poised to demand more debt relief, and Germany has already begun dismissing these demands. But if history is any guide, more rounds of restructuring are likely in store, and Greece's creditors should probably brace themselves for more, and bigger, haircuts.

• We hope you had as much fun reading our recent front page story on the 2015 Junior Leadership Kershaw County's etiquette class as we did putting it together. The entire Junior Leadership program -- taking some of Kershaw County's brightest and most promising students and giving them the opportunity to interact with a variety of leaders from across the county -- is one we're lucky to have in our community. The etiquette class, held at Boykin's Mill Pond Steakhouse, taught these already well-mannered teens the finer points of moving through society, especially at a fancy restaurant. Parents often ...

Morgan: The Abbeville decision

While I was taking a finance class as part of my doctoral program in Virginia in the early 1990s, one of the topics we discussed was a lawsuit that had been filed in South Carolina, now called the Abbeville case, which challenged South Carolina's structure for funding public education. Life takes funny turns. Here I am 21 years later in South Carolina when the case is finally settled.

Editorial: State of the Union

Kershaw County residents who watched the State of the Union address Tuesday night might agree with us that perhaps it's time to call a halt to the entire production. That's not a slam at President Obama, for he did nothing more overtly political than his predecessors from both parties have been doing for years. It's just that the term "state of the union" bears little resemblance to what actually occurs at the annual event; it's become little more than a political circus.
