Polk, Gilland quick to help with tending historic site

It has been my distinct pleasure and honor to serve for two years as chairman of the Camden Garden Club's project to restore and preserve the Joseph Kershaw Gravesite. Members of this hard-working committee have planted, mulched, pruned, weeded, monitored, and dedicated themselves to restoring this historically significant plot of land to the glorious state it deserves, as the final resting place of the founder of Camden, and one of the state's first patriots.

Carolina Cup

Many years ago, there was a Carolina Cup race director who insisted that every person in attendance was there to watch the horses run and that none of them were interested in the social aspects of the day -- or in taking a drink. That, of course, wasn't close to true, and there's a reason that the Cup has often been called the largest outdoor cocktail party in South Carolina. It is indeed a social occasion, and the consumption of alcoholic beverages has always played a part in its success. And yes, there always have been people who have ...

When it's dark enough you can see the stars

I could tell by my husband's face the news wasn't good. It was a scenario my doctor and I had not discussed. Prior to my surgery, I had only imagined a positive outcome. In fact, I wanted the procedure on my knee done as soon as possible. I thought, "Great. I'll be running again in about three weeks. That's good for me." Then, BAMM! (Funny how life can do that and so quickly!) It does it in such a way that we are at times completely blindsided. I should have listened to all my voicemails that ...

Snakes to be released into Wateree

I've covered news for nearly four decades in Kershaw County yet I've never been as shocked as I was upon learning yesterday that the S.C. Department of Wildlife will release more than 10,000 deadly cotton-mouth moccasins into Lake Wateree later this summer.

Teenagers can be friends with parents

Being a teenager means getting lumped into a category labeled that all teenagers are rebellious, reckless, and absolutely can't wait to get away from their parents. Some may be like that, but it's not fair to put a label on those who aren't. Why is

Rhame Arena

The feeling of excitement at last week's Camden City Council meeting was palpable when architectural and engineering firms revealed their sketches for the renovation of Rhame Arena in the south end of town. The drawings were indeed startling -- perhaps because the aging structure has been deteriorating and decaying for decades now, and there has been doubt among some that a rehabilitation of the crumbling building was even possible. But possible it is, and not just to produce a humdrum building, but one that is attractive and will be a beckoning welcome to visitors driving into town from I-20 and ...

Reader: we can’t afford ‘us vs. versus them’

Most folks running for political office claim their previous political "experience" is just the thing that proves they deserve your vote this November. Sometimes that is absolutely true. Sometimes, however, as in the current city council race, that previous experience is the very thing that voters should remember as creating one of the most contentious, unpleasant four years in Camden's recent memory.

Reader supports Williams for city council

On Nov. 4th, we will fill two seats on Camden City Council. We have an outstanding candidate in Bob Williams. He is dedicated to helping Camden grow and move forward in a positive way. Bob was born and raised in Camden, and attended and graduated from our public schools. He owns and operates a local business and understands the needs of the small business and property owners. He would never exploit the office for personal gain.
