City councilman owes Attorney General an apology

I read with great disappointment one of our city councilmen's rude and inappropriate comments regarding our state's attorney general. I am shocked that an elected official I voted for would speak of our state's chief legal officer in such a way. Perhaps Mr. Partin should be reminded that the people of South Carolina and the people of Kershaw County elected Alan Wilson to serve us as Attorney General.

Referendum is honorable way to decide hospitality tax use

Thank you for the opportunity to tell the citizens of Camden of the petition drive that is calling for a referendum on the use of hospitality taxes. I have no question that our elected officials are good people with good intentions. However, many citizens have been outraged at the city council and city administration's process in making a decision on a sports complex. During the last few weeks many citizens have written letters to the editor in opposition to the city's handling of the controversial decision. Others have spoken at the public forums before each city council meeting ...

National Assisted Living Week began on Grandparents' Day, Sept. 11 and continued until Sept. 17. Many assisted living residents are the people who made significant contributions to the community.

Voter requirements

South Carolina recently passed a law that requires voters to show a photo ID when they go to the polls, and we have said all along those who object to such a move are throwing a red herring into the equation. There's certainly nothing wrong with having people prove who they say they are when they go to exercise the basic right of democracy, and the photo ID law does nothing to prevent people from voting or making it more difficult for them to do so.
