Epsy Peebles smoothed her straight brown hair back from her face and into a bun at the nape of her neck. The reflection in the mirror showed her plain round face. Her skin was still smooth as a schoolgirl's. Her lips were still full and young looking. Her brown eyes searched her reflection carefully. She was getting ready to have her photograph portrait made with Daniel -- for the first time ever. The appointment this afternoon was a milestone for them. They had finally saved up enough money from the farm income to "splurge" on a permanent image of themselves ...

When the city of Camden proposed using hospitality tax funds to help construct a new YMCA, the proposal met with a great deal of opposition from many who felt that wouldn't be an appropriate use of the funds. That controversy boiled over for quite awhile and Mayor Jeffrey Graham eventually lost his re-election bid to political newcomer Tony Scully. Now a new proposal for hospitality tax funding has been brought before council, and whether or not members decide to fund it, there can be no argument that it would be a proper use of such money.

Three nights after suffering a tough road loss at Lower Richland, the Camden boys' basketball team rebounded with its best effort of the season.
I can still hear the sound. Though many years have passed and many memories have drifted along the ebb and flow of my consciousness, I can still hear the sound.
How I ever had time to each English with the other chores such as essay contests, speech contests, compositions for other personnel, hall duty, nonsensical meetings, debate team, the Beta Club, not to mention the athletic department, I do not know! Earlier, I wrote about being a football coach, never compensated by money or the accoutrements such as jackets, rings or letters. Never, however, have a I divulged my involvement in the realm of basketball.

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.
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 ...
Students from Wateree Elementary School in Krissi Butler's first grade class enjoyed a field study at the end of the school year to Sesquicentennial State Park to study plants.
Tomorrow is Independence Day, the Fourth of July, when this country celebrates its birthday. This year, July 4 marks the 239th anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence -- the document which signaled to the world the original 13 British colonies were breaking away from Mother England.
WASHINGTON -- First-term first ladies are often shadows to their more-important husbands, dabbling in lite fare to avoid criticism and picking safe projects to shield them and their families from the inevitable slings and arrows.
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 ...
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 ...
