Mayor fields questions on Y proposal

Over the course of the past three to four months I have been asked numerous questions about the city of Camden's intent to build a new sports complex. While much of the discussion seems to be focused on the YMCA as a facility manager, I believe it is important to keep our eye on the primary goal of the recreation facility itself. Below are questions that I most often get asked:

Debt crisis

It's a sad sign that a committee of 12 has had to be appointed to try to deal with the debt crisis in America, the result of Congress' inability to move the country forward during these trying times. The Joint Select Committee on Deficit Reduction, composed of six Democrats and six Republicans, is charged with devising a plan to reduce the deficit by $1.5 trillion over the next 10 years, and if it fails, then automatic cuts are to take place. We recall that the last time such a committee was formed, headed by Democrat Erskine Bowles and ...

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.

Rhame Arena

The feeling of excitement at last week's Camden City Council meeting was palpable when architectural and engineering firms revealed their sketches for the renovation of Rhame Arena in the south end of town. The drawings were indeed startling -- perhaps because the aging structure has been deteriorating and decaying for decades now, and there has been doubt among some that a rehabilitation of the crumbling building was even possible. But possible it is, and not just to produce a humdrum building, but one that is attractive and will be a beckoning welcome to visitors driving into town from I-20 and ...

The bad rep of for-profit colleges

For-profit colleges can't get no respect, at least not from employers. Which suggests that maybe they should be getting less generous taxpayer subsidies, too.

Reader: we can’t afford ‘us vs. versus them’

Most folks running for political office claim their previous political "experience" is just the thing that proves they deserve your vote this November. Sometimes that is absolutely true. Sometimes, however, as in the current city council race, that previous experience is the very thing that voters should remember as creating one of the most contentious, unpleasant four years in Camden's recent memory.

It was a delight to see the conceptual drawing for the refurbishment of Rhame Arena. What a classic design and what a great design for a "gateway to the city."

Reader supports Williams for city council

On Nov. 4th, we will fill two seats on Camden City Council. We have an outstanding candidate in Bob Williams. He is dedicated to helping Camden grow and move forward in a positive way. Bob was born and raised in Camden, and attended and graduated from our public schools. He owns and operates a local business and understands the needs of the small business and property owners. He would never exploit the office for personal gain.
