YMCA important step for city

Our children began swimming competitively at a young age. We lived in Columbia at the time and were members of a community swim club in our subdivision. When we moved to Camden in 1979, the YMCA pool provided them with the opportunity to continue this important social and physical activity. Our son and his wife live in Greenville and utilize their "Y" for work-outs several times a week. He is still a swimmer. Our daughter's family participates in the "Y" in Sumter; both grandchildren play basketball there. Our grand-daughter's school holds their swim team practices and meets at ...

Where’s the truth?

Over the Christmas break, I spent a couple hours cleaning up my office and sorting through all the stuff I've accumulated since the summer. One of the folders I found contained a report from an organization called the South Carolinians for Responsible Government (SCRG). This group is headquartered in Columbia and is reportedly funded in large part by out-of-state money. The SCRG is best known for its advocacy for school choice/tax credit legislation. These folks have a wealth of resources. At a hearing I attended during last year's General Assembly, the SCRG had three staff members, an ...

Noted and passed

• Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich vowed that he would conduct a positive campaign for the presidency, and he did just that -- until his numbers started dropping. Gingrich, who polled well both in Iowa and New Hampshire at one time, unleashed a series of vitriolic ads against Mitt Romney as Gingrich's star began to fade. Other GOP candidates on the right have done the same as Romney has gained strength. These days, a positive message seems to last only as long as a candidate is doing well.

Editorial: Medical marijuana

Though the legalization of medical marijuana appears to be a dead issue in this session of the General Assembly, we hope lawmakers won't forget about it and that there will be an attempt to revive the issue next year. It is, of course, an emotional matter for many people, and there are those who believe legalizing marijuana for medical purposes will be the first wave of massive use by people who are trying to skirt the law. Both the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division and S.C. Medical Association oppose the bill, with a former president of the ...
