Moped vs. van

A Camden police officer examines a moped in the aftermath of an accident Tuesday afternoon at the intersection of Broad and Rutledge streets in downtown Camden. Officers secured the scene until the arrival of the S.C. Highway Patrol, which will investigate the accident because it occurred on a U.S. highway. Emergency Medical Services transported the man riding the moped which reportedly struck the rear of the Chrysler van at left. Officers blocked off portions of both streets for part of Tuesday afternoon.

When we pick up prescriptions at the pharmacy, we're often required to show similar proof of identification. Yet U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has blocked a South Carolina law requiring voters to show picture IDs when they go to the polls to ...

Thank you, CPD officers, for your respect

Recently, my mother-in-law passed away. On Jan. 1st, we had her funeral at Powers Funeral Home in Lugoff. Robbie and his team went to great lengths to be sure everything was done in a very professional way. I am not writing to thank them. I was able to thank them in person. I am writing this because of the policemen who work for the city of Camden. The respect they showed as the family members and friends went through the stoplights was greatly appreciated. I grew up in Camden and as long as I can remember, our policemen stood with ...

The Rubio factor

WASHINGTON -- The great thing about Iowa is that no matter whom the voters selected in their neighborhood huddles, it doesn't really matter. Placing in Iowa might land one a talk show (see Mike Huckabee), but the preferences of a handful of Americans belonging to a committed, ideological subset of a committed, ideological party do not a national trend suggest. The presumptive candidate proceeds apace.

Kids and guns

Whenever the subject of guns is brought up, it engenders strong opinion on both sides -- from those who believe in absolute Second Amendment rights, and from those who believe that nobody should be allowed to own a gun in any circumstances. Like most people, we fall somewhere in the middle, solidly on the side of Americans to own firearms but a bit dubious about why it makes sense for people to own Uzis and other automatic weapons that are made with the express purpose of killing people.
