Don’t forget the reason behind Memorial Day weekend

Dear Readers: Today is Memorial Day. We know for many, this is simply part of a long weekend. But we hope you will keep in mind the reason behind the holiday -- a day to remember those servicemen and women who have died serving their country. Please honor our fallen heroes by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of veterans. It is also customary to fly the flag at half-staff until noon.

Noted and passed

• We welcome newly hired Kershaw County Administrator Victor Carpenter, who comes to this area from Abbeville County; we hope Carpenter can lend some stability to a position that's had too much turnover in recent years. And while we're at it, let us offer a tip of the hat to Frank Broom, former Camden city manager, who served as interim county administrator and was able to "straight shoot" with council members, partly because he didn't have to worry about their becoming angry and siding against him, a concern that "regular" administrators naturally must harbor.

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 ...

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.

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.
