To showcase its continued commitment to recycling efforts, the city of Camden is offering a pilot program with a limited number of 65-gallon recycling bins which are 3.5 times larger than the current recycling containers. This allows for more space for weekly recyclables.

We doubt that many Kershaw County residents are waiting in breathless anticipation for the presidential debate tonight. After all, mirroring the normal path of politics over the last few years, this year's contest between President Barack Obama and Mitt Romney has been more of a mud-wrestling contest than a serious forum over the many difficult issues facing the United States.

Obama is our only hope...

President Obama is our only hope of statesmanship, leadership and large vision for this nation at this critical time in our history. Obama has the courage of Lincoln.

Romney hasn't lost election

It seems your paper has taken the same position as the national media in promoting President Obama and denigrating Mitt Romney. Your contention that "Romney has lost the election" (Sept. 24.) based on his "47 percent" statement seems to echo the liberal national press. Let's drop the political rhetoric, step back for a moment and logically and objectively analyze what Romney meant (which is exactly the courtesy you would have given President Obama). He never implied that he does not care about all of America; he was simply stating a fact that a coalition of people would vote for ...

‘Y’ will benefit community

On November 6th I will vote "Yes" for the City to build a sports complex. The architectural sketches promise a beautiful building which will make Camden more attractive.
