Two little red balls

My mother certainly was horrified that I seemed to enjoy learning, often telling me, "Boys do not like smart girls." Her idea of a good life for me was to find some man to take care of me, know all home skills such as cooking, sewing, etc., and fill the house with children. Today, because of her, I know those skills and enjoy them. I did however, only have one child because of unforeseen circumstances. Knitting, crocheting, needlepoint, crewel, and regular sewing often occupy my time. In fact, one of my grandchildren recently asked me, "Nana, do you still like ...

President No

Three years ago, President Obama, freshly ensconced in the White House, appointed Erskine Bowles and Alan Simpson to draft a plan to cut the nation's huge deficit. In choosing reasonable men of two parties, Obama left everyone with the impression that he was flexible and ready to deal with fiscal issues in an even-handed way. The men headed a committee that came up with common-sense and workable solutions to reduce the deficit in an even-handed way -- both cutting spending and raising taxes.

Fourth of July BBQ essentials

The Fourth of July is tomorrow and revelers across the nation are preparing to toast their independence with family and friends. For many Americans, backyard barbecues are synonymous with the Fourth of July, a day that, in the United States of America, commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence by the Second Continental Congress on July 4, 1776.

Historic Camden’s Did you Know?

While Ben Franklin was key to the crafting of the Declaration of Independence, the other Founding Fathers did not want him to be the main author - as they felt they couldn't trust him not to put a joke in it!

The great, big and wonderful approval of going independent actually occurred on July 2 -- a day which John Adams thought would forever after be celebrated by the newly formed nation. "The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha in the History of America." He was right about the way we honor it though: "It ought ...

Scully: Vision and process

Many extraordinary people offer visionary ideas, especially here. "Wouldn't it be great if we had a river rafting business on the Wateree?" "Wouldn't it be great if we had a downtown boutique hotel?" "Wouldn't it be great if we had a Bluegrass Festival the week of the Colonial Cup?" "Wouldn't it be great if we had a cottage development, or better yet, a new Kershaw County library on the former Mather property?" "And another restaurant or two!" The answer is predictably, "Yes, of course yes! Thank you for your great ideas," followed by necessary questions: "Where ...

Reader wants ‘fair and balanced reporting’

During the open meetings of all of our public bodies, there is provided a period for public comments. This period is part of the meeting agenda and is, presumably, included in the meeting's minutes. Therefore, these comments become part of the public record. This period is set aside for anyone wanting to speak about matters of concern, as long as the comments are about public issues (not to include the promotion of a private business and not about personal issues). Although the public comment period is not a period of debate, it provides private citizens an opportunity to let ...
