City councilman owes Attorney General an apology

I read with great disappointment one of our city councilmen's rude and inappropriate comments regarding our state's attorney general. I am shocked that an elected official I voted for would speak of our state's chief legal officer in such a way. Perhaps Mr. Partin should be reminded that the people of South Carolina and the people of Kershaw County elected Alan Wilson to serve us as Attorney General.

Referendum is honorable way to decide hospitality tax use

Thank you for the opportunity to tell the citizens of Camden of the petition drive that is calling for a referendum on the use of hospitality taxes. I have no question that our elected officials are good people with good intentions. However, many citizens have been outraged at the city council and city administration's process in making a decision on a sports complex.

Others have spoken at the public forums before each city council meeting ...

Helping kids put the thanks in Thanksgiving

It's not hard to tell when the Christmas shopping season is officially in full swing because my children's cartoons become shorter along with the days. Instead of regular programming, their 30-minute show is crammed with 20 minutes of commercials telling my kids why they absolutely can't live without and must have a stuffed animal that magically transforms into a backpack or a bed or a three-bedroom ranch with optional den.
