In support of Jimmy Jones

Sometimes things cross your mind that you feel just need to be said to bring encouragement to those that have been a part of your life. I worked for the city of Camden and Kershaw County for many years in the Special Services Department under the direction of Jimmy Jones. Throughout those years we were constantly taught to be servants of the community and put their needs first. This principle has gone on to be a part of my life now and it has paid huge dividends. I am thankful for the input into my personal life of principles that ...

Romney's business

As Mitt Romney's campaign steps up its pace following his securing of enough votes to ensure the Republican presidential nomination, some prominent Democrats express surprise with how quickly Romney's former GOP foes have converted to his cause. Some on the Obama team expected there to be lingering dissension among Republicans over the hard-fought primary. And ironically, the president's major offensive centers around criticizing Romney's tenure as head of Bain Capital, a private equity firm that earned him millions of dollars.

Brick by brick

Crews begin demolishing the band room of the old Camden Middle School (CMS) campus Wednesday on Laurens Street. Following CMS' move to McRae Road several years ago, the Kershaw County School District attempted to sell the property twice to developers who had proposed creating a new residential area by extending Jordan Street south to Jordan Street. Neighbors fought the move, leaving the property vacant for years and subject to vandalism. The district decided earlier this year to demolish the remaining buildings and have the debris removed in order to make the property more attractive to sell.

Editorial: Crape scolding

One thing which makes Camden so appealing is its attention to and love for trees. The city is graced with thousands of them, and they add immeasurably to the atmosphere of our municipality. The Camden Tree Foundation and its many volunteers work tirelessly to plant new trees and keep existing ones healthy, and the city of Camden has had the foresight to hire a professional to oversee the arboreal health of the area. But a recent newspaper column by the town's urban forester, Liz Gilland, was a bit troubling in its tone.

Last November, we voted down the referendum that would empower the KCSD to tear down usable and functioning schools and construct replacement along with a new or rehabilitated Camden High football stadium. All it was going to cost was $130 million plus interest. But, fear not, they also asked us to approve a "penny" sales tax to pay for it.

The aviator's helmet

Bob Clithero displays a vintage leather pilot's helmet of a type that would have been used by aviators in the early 20th century. Clithero spoke about Winston Groom's book, "The Aviators," during a recent meeting of the Golden K Club. The book is about three giants of aviation -- Jimmy Doolittle, Charles Lindbergh, and Eddie Rickenbacker -- and their enormous influence and contribution to aviation and to the world. All three, Clithero said, were raised in relative poverty and estranged from their fathers, but had strong relationships with their mothers. All three were innovators and mechanical geniuses. All three survived ...
