Reassessment inconsistencies

Most people are very upset about the recent property tax assessments including myself. After reading the comments of County Assessor Randy Roberts and Deputy Assessor Mark Griffiths it sounds like the excuses have already started to justify the increases. Their comments of " location, location, location" and "having unique housing markets in Camden" must be very specific in these markets.

Got game?

I am not ashamed to admit that, at the instant the ref blows his final whistle and the scoreboard flaunts her last digits, a palpable degree of sadness, of disappointment comes over me like a dark cloud stealing the sun's warmth on a winter day. Reality sets in. Football season is over. The rivalries and intensity, the festivities and friends, the tradition -- all will be missed until next season. And I'm not alone.

Camden Wal-Mart opens ‘The Spark’ as information ‘hub’ for Kershaw County events

In May, Wal-Mart held a ribbon cutting to introduce "The Spark" to our community. "The Spark" will serve as a hub for all information around events in the Camden/Kershaw County community.

One example of how "The Spark" would work, is if a person is ...

Editorial: Hill's survey

This country has, in many instances, gone overboard in enforcing the first amendment: "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof." The founding fathers never intended to remove all semblances of religion from public life, yet we have moved in that direction. But a recent attempt by one South Carolina lawmaker to question potential judges about religious matters went far beyond reason and was properly squelched by state agency staffers.
