Take time for others

What kind of memories are you leaving behind? Have you ever thought about that?

Listen, city leaders, to your citizens

I don't use Facebook, I probably wouldn't use a YMCA in Camden, and I may be speaking for a small segment of our city and county. But many of us agree that timing is everything on big financial decisions in a community with the economic recession that we have here in Camden and Kershaw County, our state and our nation.

National Park designations

We at Let Freedom Ring believe in peace through strength. In this same belief we want to honor those soldiers who fought at the Battle of Camden. Those soldiers who fought at this battle believed that the peace they so desperately wanted could only come through strength and standing up to the British army stationed here at Camden. Even though the Americans lost this battle, it went a long way in winning the war and giving the Americans the peace they wanted.

Michelle Bachmann

Up until recently, someone who mentioned the words "woman" and "presidential candidate" in the same breath probably would have been met with the response, "Sarah Palin." But now, with Palin's star fading -- at least politically -- and with nobody having stepped forward to commandeer the frontrunner's role in the Republican field, Minnesota Congressman Michelle Bachmann is assuming a front-and-center position as a viable candidate to take the GOP nomination. Whether her early poll results will result in another shooting-star phenomenon is yet to be told, but Bachmann is proving herself a more adept campaigner than Palin was.

Polk only councilman to 'truly represent' citizens

I am somewhat puzzled over Martin Cahn's newspaper's accounting of city council meetings. I am particularly confused by the detailing of Mr. Polk's emotions and body language during the meetings. Are all eyes, including the reporter's, on Mr. Polk, because he is the only one who is responding to the outrage? The recent attempt to abolish the commissions is quite revealing. Mr. Partin questioned Mr.Polk's concerns and accused him of advocating larger government. In my view, Mr. Polk was defending a democratic government! Not to allow the people on these commissions the right to ...

Chain-letter e-mails don’t keep friendships alive

Dear Annie: I am constantly getting chain-letter e-mails from a friend I met in a class years ago. The e-mails usually contain vague threats about how something bad will happen to me if I don't forward the letter to five friends, or how good luck will follow if I do. The last straw was when she sent me one that said, "Forward this, and something good will happen. If you are not a believer in God, delete."

Scrapbook for July 6, 2011

Independence Day (July 4th) is a great holiday! We don't give gifts. And most people don't send "Happy Fourth of July" cards. Families have traditions how to celebrate. For me, it's parades, fireworks and food! Most of the foods we think of for this holiday are quite simple. Hot dogs, hamburgers and barbecue are at the top of my list. It's a case of "put it on the grill and sit in the shade." (One may guess that this is my day out of the kitchen.)

Cancer screening

We wrote recently of a change in the way KershawHealth is managing its emergency department, sending seriously threatened patients to one area for immediate, vital care while directing others who are less ill to be treated in a non-emergency system. It's cost-effective, but also provides quality care for both types of patients.
