A call for courage

When we Americans celebrate the Fourth of July, what word comes readily to mind? Freedom -- and rightly so. But you can't have freedom without other virtues.

Noted and passed - July 9, 2012

• Having watched and participated in July Fourth celebrations, we are struck by the same thought that hits us each year on Independence Day: that despite this country's problems, even with the bipartisan wrangling that threatens to upend our political process, considering the economy that is having a hard time gaining traction, the United States is still far and away the greatest country in the world. We join others across Kershaw County in celebrating the magnificent heritage and promising future of the good old U.S. of A.

Sending in the drones

Congress is hotly debating media leaks about President Barack Obama's "kill list" of terrorists to be targeted by unmanned drones. They should be debating the drone policy itself.

Editorial: Gerrymandering

Here in South Carolina, as in so many other states, gerrymandering -- in which political parties redraw the lines of voting districts to suit their own purposes -- is a fact of life. It was done when Democrats controlled the state, and now it's done by Republicans. One of the nationwide side effects of gerrymandering is creating more partisan divide. Because districts are set up to be safe for one party, there's not much interest in candidates having to appeal to independent voters or those who aren't hard-line adherents of either party. And, by the way, the word gerrymander ...

Letter: Reader takes it upon self to look into crape myrtle mystery

Throughout my lifetime, I have been interested in all decorative plants, although my specialty is the Camellia. I was shocked while reading the editorial by one of my favorite editors lambasting one of my favorite columnists about wording in a column on crape myrtles. For some unknown reason (probably some health problem), I had failed to read the column in question. My wife left me in this world to fend for myself while she enjoys heaven and this gives me the luxury of being able to pile newspapers by my chair in sort of a too high, messy pile to ...

Letter: Camden resident upset about The State’s ‘garbage’

Surely something can be done about The State paper throwing its "Extra" on the ground and roads. Several of us on Fire Tower Road have called and E-mailed its office and received no reply, just more trash. We've called the City of Camden, the County and Sheriff's offices to no avail.

Jenkins: A story in the scat

Two weeks ago, during our weekly field trip, I was walking with my students along a dirt road in Manchester State Forest. There upon the dirt was a hairy strand of something, about the size of a cheap cigar and tapered at both ends. Earlier that day, we examined paw prints in the sand on the same dirt road. The students drew good connections from those tracks to this new observation, correctly calling it coyote scat. Coyotes are funny this way, dropping their scat in obvious places. In addition to waste excretion, they use feces to communicate their presence to ...
