Texting ban

South Carolina is now one of 16 states which don't ban sending text messages while driving. In recent years, more and more states have prohibited the dangerous practice -- 13 since the beginning of last year. It's time for the Palmetto State to step forward and join what is a common-sense practice by banning texting while behind the wheel. Republicans who control the General Assembly will sometimes say they don't want to add any more government regulations, but a ban on texting makes just as much sense as a speed limit or a law to prevent passing on ...

Forgiveness and a promise

On Sept. 15, I had the misfortune of falling in a parking lot. I tripped over some broken pavement. I damaged both knees, knocked my front tooth out (partially, which required a root canal), busted my nose, injured my right hand which required stitches, and bruised my arm. I was bleeding profusely from my nose and hand. Two ladies came to my aid. They called an ambulance. We waited 25 minutes for its arrival. Then a man came up to us and demanded they move me out of his way. He wanted me moved immediately. "This woman may have broken ...

Growing Camden while preserving historic treasures

Over the last few months I have been meeting with people in this great community that I call home. I have been in people's homes, on the streets and in businesses talking about the direction in which the city is heading.

Back to basics

If you suddenly lost electric and gas power, could you cook? A group that gathered at the Camden Archives and Museum recently for an open fire cooking demo could. A demonstration led by Katherine Richardson, newest staff member at the archives, netted roasted chicken, venison burgers, steamed root vegetables, corn fritters and an apple pie by the hands of Deborah Watts and Mel Welch. The visiting, open fire chefs from the Sumter County Museum delighted the gathered crowd of more than 50 spectators with their clothing, preparation and tastings. School children made butter in an old-fashioned crock churn. They made ...

Herman Cain’s anti-race card

Tea partiers are delighted that their support for Herman Cain proves they don't hate black people. Unfortunately, judging by some of his statements, Cain doesn't seem to like black people very much, either.

Spurrier v. Swinney

Everyone knows that when it comes to sports, football reigns supreme here in Kershaw County and South Carolina. Whereas basketball might be the top sport in neighboring North Carolina, it's a distant second -- or probably even third -- here in the Palmetto State. And these are heady times for gridiron enthusiasts of both the University of South Carolina and Clemson; both teams have enjoyed success in the past few seasons, and that momentum has carried over into recruiting, in which both schools are piling up classes that are among the nation's best.

Smart people, smart ideas

When elected officials from different South Carolina cities meet to discuss economic development, the oft-heard cry is, "Let's work together!" The energy in these conversations is palpable, even though it's not yet clear how we can partner. For that reason, at the Municipal Association of South Carolina's (MASC) annual meeting in Charleston this July, its Achievement Awards were particularly exciting. If we can do nothing else, from city to city, we can learn from each other's ideas and borrow courage from one another's progress.
