The old kitchen house

Among many in town, the old kitchen house of Bloomsbury, c 1849, was severely damaged during the April storms. A 105-inch circumference White Oak fell on the roof. The oak broke through the roof and destroyed the upper one-third of the cooking chimney. With the significant damage limited to the old kitchen house, the major impact was the deletion of open fire/family cooking. If not the storm, the summer heat would have temporarily halted open fire cooking until fall.

Decay in the art of political insults

With a presidential contest on the rise, so is the heat of the umbrage wars. That's what I call the endless contest to see which political side can express more outrage about what the other side has to say about them.

Noted and passed

• We're glad to see Camden native Larry Doby honored with a postage stamp in his honor, one of four Major League baseball players to be so recognized; Joe DiMaggio, the Yankee Clipper, is another, and the final two have yet to be chosen. Doby was the first black player in the American League and carved out an enviable career record. He died in 2003.

Hospitality and tourism

I have never before felt compelled to write a letter to our local newspaper or any other newspaper for that matter, but I do now. I own a business near Camden that draws hundreds of "out of town" people to stay in our motels and B&Bs, buy gas, eat out and shop. This supports my business and injects revenue into our community which obviously is a win/win, so I understand how important tourism can be to our town.

A case for Zemp

I never played high school football. My glory days ended with the little league Lions and the gridiron of my youth is now a stand of depressingly mature pine trees across the old, worn foot bridge in Woodward Park. Like many, I now enjoy the pleasure of watching and cheering on younger generations and look forward to each new season as it plays out on our home field at Zemp Stadium. It is my opinion that we, as a community, should keep Zemp and prepare the old facility for the future.

Vote ‘no’ for taxes

While it may be overly ambitious to tackle academia and government at the same time, to some extent, that is what I'm going to do. And in doing so, heaven forbid I assume an Obama level of arrogance required to advise you what to do. I simply am saying what I am going to do and give reasons for my decision.

Workforce act doesn’t work

The unemployment rate here in Kershaw County and across South Carolina, as well as the rest of the United States, remains disappointingly high. The economy is still mired in slow growth, and too many people are out of work. Yet a recent study by a national newspaper shows how ineffective government jobs programs can be and points out that many people who have tried to take advantage of them end up worse off than they were before starting them.
