Justice denied

"I am innocent," Troy Davis declared moments before he was to be executed for the killing of a security officer in Savannah, Ga., in 1991. How many times have we heard these words? Most of the inmates in jails and prisons across America would confess their innocence of a crime. And some may actually be. But what makes Troy Davis' claim different? Is it because his case has drawn national and international attention? Is it because his cause has the support of Pope Benedict XVI, former president of the United States Jimmy Carter, the president of the NAACP, Benjamin Jealous ...

Let’s seize this golden opportunity

My wife and I moved here four years ago. I moved back home, and in her words, she moved home for the very first time. We noticed others doing the same, both then and still now. Just yesterday I received a call from a classmate who had finally landed a job close enough to allow him to live in Camden. I've often pondered this anomaly. What is it that so often brings people back? Many reasons come to mind: the people, the incredible sense of community, the horse races, the beautiful parks, the "walkable" streets, and the safety provided ...

Retro TV revisits birth of ‘culture war’

Do AMC's "Mad Men," ABC's "Pan Am," NBC's "The Playboy Club" and BBC America's "The Hour" exploit society's barely suppressed appetite for a more sexist, racist and conservative era? Fear not. The underlying message in these depictions of the bad old days is clear: We should be better than that now, even when we aren't.

Why a Y now?

I, like many others, have listened, watched and read about this YMCA/sports complex. It all started with a real estate listing on 1/7/2011, a contract on 2/7/2011 and a closing date later in March. Wow! That was a fast real estate transaction. Discontent and suspicions started then and have continued. Shortly after the closing, there was talk of a possible YMCA partnering with Columbia. Now I am not here to oppose a Y. My children learned to swim at the Y, my husband was president of the board and was even instrumental in obtaining the ...

Braves out

The many thousands of Atlanta Braves fans here in Kershaw County are no doubt hanging their heads in despair after the team blew a 10-and-a-half game wild-card lead in little more than a month to end up missing the National League playoffs. Ironically, the Boston Red Sox had a similar run of futility, failing to hang on to a nine-game wild-card lead they held Sept. 4. The Braves and the Red Sox share one common thread: they're both regional franchises, with Atlanta commanding huge hoards of fans in the South and the Red Sox the favorite of nearly every ...

Editorial: Court decisions

Two prominent decisions in South Carolina courts this week have been just and fair -- exactly the way most people would like to see the legal system work. The first was a decision by Circuit Court Judge Carmen Mullen to overturn the 1944 conviction of a 14-year-old boy who was sent to the electric chair back in the Jim Crow days of this state for the murder of two girls.

Letters: Reader proud of vets, kids, county council

Anytime we, as a county, can truly honor something or someone, a warm feeling can overcome you. This is good. This experience happened Dec. 9, the final (regular) Kershaw County Council meeting of 2014. One had to be there to witness this "proud of you" feeling obviously everyone certainly felt.

Camden’s Carnegie public library (a/k/a, Camden Archives and Museum) celebrates its centennial

One hundred years ago, in 1915, 1314 Broad St. was a construction site. Excavators and bricklayers, carpenters and heating contractors were busy at their task of building Camden's first city library. It had been an arduous journey getting to that point. That journey began in 1914, as best we can reckon, at a lecture to the Kershaw County Teachers Institute. In all of the factors leading up to the acquisition and completion of the Camden Public Library there is one constant: Sarah "Sadie" Kennedy Von Tresckow.
