Summer reading selection's language, not message, remains parent's concern

For those of you who may not be familiar with this issue, my problem is with books with excessive profanity being used in the Kershaw County School District. The one discussed in this article used the "F" word close to 20 times along with other multiple, in my opinion, socially unacceptable words. I have to refer to this word as the "F" word because it would otherwise not be printed in this paper, just as it wasn't used in the WLTX news broadcast, but still OK for our school district to make it available to our kids.

Is the Tea Party over?

Has the tea party peaked? Republican lawmakers affiliated with the upstart anti-tax movement scored big in the nerve-wracking debt-ceiling debacle, but the victory left enough hard feelings to feed the movement's ultimate downfall.

Pet talk for Aug. 12, 2011

Humans and animals have interacted together for thousands of years. From the very first people who decided to domesticate the dog, to the present day "pioneers" that choose to keep goats and pigs in their houses, animals have played huge roles in the lives of many people. While early civilization saw them as mainly a food and fiber source or a hunting tool, modern society views them as companions, family, and best friends. The human-pet bond concept emerged in veterinary medicine as recently as the last few decades, and it has caused the companion animal industry to explode.

Tea Party Patriots 'standing up against destruction of our country'

I am a proud American who, according to County Councilman Jimmy Jones, would meet his definition of a Patriot. After all, I served over 28 years in the Marine Corps, earning the rank of sergeant major, (command sergeant major for you Army veterans) in the Infantry. My grandfather also served in World War I, my father served in the Korean War, and my son now serves as a Marine. That makes me a veteran with a proud family tradition of serving our county. The dictionary though describes a Patriot as a person who loves and loyally or zealously supports his ...

A review of organized recreation in Camden and Kershaw County

This old coach has followed with interest the comments of many who have offered legitimate questions about a proposed new recreation facility. To make a long story short, neither the city of Camden nor Kershaw County needs a second youth recreation program. Plain and simple, the area does not have the finances to entertain such extravagance. In light of today's on-going national economic meltdown, neither government should be contemplating the construction of new buildings for any reason, especially when in this case, there are excellent, existing, centrally located facilities that meet and exceed any and all plans the city ...

Noted and passed - July 28, 2014

• Friday's report that Amtrak is going to spend the next several months refurbishing Camden's passenger rail station off West DeKalb Street is welcome news. Built in 1937, it has shown its age for decades and never more so than now with holes in the platform's canopy, rotting timbers and other problems that make it a less than desirable place to stop. Amtrak says their No. 1 priority is making the facility Americans with Disabilities Act compliant -- and that's a very good thing -- from the parking lot to the station and onto the platform and train. But ...
