Thanks to teachers!!

There's a bumper sticker that I've seen a number of times and saw again just recently. It says, "If you can read this, thank a teacher." That's well said and actually, it's not said enough for many reasons beyond reading. As I thought about what to write for the month of November, a time for giving thanks, I thought it would be appropriate to ask our teachers and other staff to talk about a teacher whom they would want to thank. I sent out an email to this effect and got more responses than I could ...

Military Monday - Nov. 19, 2012

In my first installment I discussed that I was assigned to the 304th Military Police Battalion in Nashville, Tenn. So why am I writing an article for the Camden Chronicle? I am a Kershaw County resident and have lived in Kershaw county on and off since 1972 when my dad, John Baird Sr., retired from the Army here. When someone writes a résumé in the Army, we call it an autobiography. I will give you a short synopsis of my military and civilian career and how I ended up in Nashville as an Army Reservist. I graduated from Lugoff-Elgin ...

Shall our gratitude sleep?

On November 9, I had the privilege of speaking to a wonderful group of people in the gym of Belin United Methodist Church in Murrells Inlet. I am not often called on to speak in public and although I am not the most gifted orator, I was honored and even excited to be there. This particular event was the Veterans Day Program held by the church in honor of veterans of the congregation and of this wonderful community. I was invited to speak by Charlie Nash who also planned and hosted the event. If you know anything about Charlie, I ...

Campaign money

Every once in awhile we take to jousting at windmills, posing situations that we know will never become reality but advocating for them, nevertheless. This year's elections, and the massive amount of money spent on them, spur us to do a bit of windmill tilting today. We all know, of course, that President Obama and Mitt Romney spent billions of dollars during their presidential campaign, but over the years, other races have gotten more and more expensive. Those filter all the way down to the local level.
