Less is more

Republicans gained a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives in last November's elections, but the GOP is finding that binding all its members together to produce clear policy isn't an easy task. House Republicans earlier this week proposed cutting about $35 billion in spending, slashing such programs as Americorps, family planning assistance and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. But many newly elected members say that's not enough, stressing they were sent to Washington to make even deeper cuts. Complicating the situation is that spending legislation must also pass the Senate, where Democrats still maintain a ...

KCSO: It's time for traffic enforcement

Did you know that last year Kershaw County received a grant and we didn't even ask for it? You might think that was pretty neat until you found out why we received this grant. We were given this grant because Kershaw County has the third highest DUI accident rate per capita of any county in South Carolina.

Now is time to address proposed school legislation

In reading the various media reports coming out about the General Assembly, it can be extremely difficult to understand the full effect of what is being debated and ultimately decided. Unfortunately, legislation is often written in such a way that its real impact is lost on someone who doesn't deal with legislation all the time. In this particular year, when decisions made to cut the state budget will have profound impact, it is more important than ever for citizens to understand what lawmakers and others are proposing.

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 ...

The bad rep of for-profit colleges

For-profit colleges can't get no respect, at least not from employers. Which suggests that maybe they should be getting less generous taxpayer subsidies, too.

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.
