Hospitality and tourism

I have never before felt compelled to write a letter to our local newspaper or any other newspaper for that matter, but I do now. I own a business near Camden that draws hundreds of "out of town" people to stay in our motels and B&Bs, buy gas, eat out and shop. This supports my business and injects revenue into our community which obviously is a win/win, so I understand how important tourism can be to our town.

Too much Harpootlian

Dick Harpootlian, chairman of the S.C. Democratic Party, used to be an engaging figure, what we in the newspaper business called "good copy." Now Harpootlian's more of a loud bore. His latest rant involves his excoriation of Gov. Nikki Haley for hiring campaign staffers for high-paying government jobs, which is exactly what Democratic governors have also done. Harpootlian basically says it was all right for Dems to do that, but it's not OK for Haley because she said she was going to be a different kind of governor.

Editorial: Big money Dems

The ever-present cable news shows are already fixated on the 2016 presidential campaign, with the Republican race a wide-open affair and the Democratic nomination said to be Hillary Clinton's for the asking. Of course, we'll point out Clinton was also the overwhelming favorite in 2008 until Barack Obama came along and stole her candy. But one thing's for sure, no matter whom the parties nominate: massive amounts of money will be spent.

Moment of Nature - Feb. 27, 2015

Murder is a strong word and truth be known it's not really what happens (unfortunately) when a crape myrtle, a Southern signature tree is topped, but it has become a familiar vernacular amongst plant people. If crape myrtles did in fact die when they were butchered, then the practice would stop.

Winter visions

When snow fell on Kershaw County on Tuesday, local shutterbugs took out their cameras (or smartphones) and took some pictures. In the first photo is Reid Graham and his snowman in a picture posted to the C-I's Facebook page by his grandmother, Linda Fender Graham. The second picture is a photo of some daffodils in the snow taken by former C-I editor Martha Bruce near the corner of Mill and Haile streets. It's "kind of a 'mixed message' of winter and spring," she said.
