Ariail for Jan. 16, 2015

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

Ariail for Jan. 23, 2014

January 23, 2015 | | Ariail


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.

Gilland: ‘Dung on a twig?’

How would you like to be called dung-on-a-twig? There certainly are worse things in life, but certainly much better things as well.

"Mistel" a common word for dung, and "tang" the word for twig, combine to form the word mistletoe or "dung on a twig." This name became prevalent as it was noticed that mistletoe would appear where many birds had landed on branches and deposited their excrement, nice. This puts a whole new context on the ...
