Is the Tea Party over?

Has the tea party peaked? Republican lawmakers affiliated with the upstart anti-tax movement scored big in the nerve-wracking debt-ceiling debacle, but the victory left enough hard feelings to feed the movement's ultimate downfall.

Pet talk for Aug. 12, 2011

Humans and animals have interacted together for thousands of years. From the very first people who decided to domesticate the dog, to the present day "pioneers" that choose to keep goats and pigs in their houses, animals have played huge roles in the lives of many people. While early civilization saw them as mainly a food and fiber source or a hunting tool, modern society views them as companions, family, and best friends. The human-pet bond concept emerged in veterinary medicine as recently as the last few decades, and it has caused the companion animal industry to explode.

Tea Party Patriots 'standing up against destruction of our country'

I am a proud American who, according to County Councilman Jimmy Jones, would meet his definition of a Patriot. After all, I served over 28 years in the Marine Corps, earning the rank of sergeant major, (command sergeant major for you Army veterans) in the Infantry. My grandfather also served in World War I, my father served in the Korean War, and my son now serves as a Marine. That makes me a veteran with a proud family tradition of serving our county. The dictionary though describes a Patriot as a person who loves and loyally or zealously supports his ...

A review of organized recreation in Camden and Kershaw County

This old coach has followed with interest the comments of many who have offered legitimate questions about a proposed new recreation facility. To make a long story short, neither the city of Camden nor Kershaw County needs a second youth recreation program. Plain and simple, the area does not have the finances to entertain such extravagance. In light of today's on-going national economic meltdown, neither government should be contemplating the construction of new buildings for any reason, especially when in this case, there are excellent, existing, centrally located facilities that meet and exceed any and all plans the city ...

Man nurtures huge cabbage patch

Willie Benson lives on Longtown Road in Lugoff. He started his family garden about the last week in March from seed. The growth started from his mulch pile and 10-10-10 fertilizer. The garden had cabbage heads growing to about 10 inches wide at first. While he was in Washington, DC for a month, the plants grew to stand 40-36 inches tall.

City boards and commissions

Camden City Council is wise to consider the role and development of city boards and commissions, and an overall restructuring of the process would be a good idea. City Manager Kevin Bronson, at council's last meeting, laid down several guidelines that should be followed in appointing boards and commissions, all of which made sense. But it was an off-hand remark by Council member Walter Long that perhaps was most cogent of all -- that the city is not receiving minutes from some boards because they aren't meeting regularly. And therein lies a premise: that the city doesn't need ...

Noted and passed - Dec. 22, 2014

• Beverly Hope Melton's murder on Dec. 26 three years ago shocked Kershaw and Chesterfield counties. Nickolas Jermaine Miller, 26, continues to be held at the Kershaw County Detention Center (KCDC) after he reportedly confessed to abducting Melton in Chesterfield County, repeatedly raping her and then beating her death with a baseball bat in Kershaw County. Miller even led authorities to Melton's body. Despite his reported confession, Miller has yet to work out a plea deal or face a jury. And he won't, as we reported Friday, until Feb. 9, 2016, more than four years after his arrest ...

I-20 ramp accident

Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) personnel work to extricate two passengers from this car around 1 p.m. Thursday, which apparently rolled over several times after having gone up an embankment on the eastbound I-20 ramp at Camden Exit 98. Dispatchers initially told the LF-R the accident took place on I-20 itself, but Lugoff Rescue 10, Service 10 and Battalion 1 soon found the accident was on the ramp. LF-R crews stabilized the vehicle and successfully extricated both patients with rescue tools. LF-R Chief Dennis Ray said KershawHealth EMS transported both patients to Palmetto Richland for possible trauma, with a LF-R firefighter ...
