Straight shooter

In his own words, Camden Police Department (CPD) Detective James Heming describes his recent win in the Open Class Revolver Championship at the South Carolina Police Combat League's Palmetto State Classic Pistol Competition as, "Truly a highlight in my career -- with years of shooting competition under my belt it is amazing to me that I was able to come out on top of 68 other competitors in the main event revolver match, and then to be able to win first place in the Two-Man Team competition with teammate Earl Berry was more than exciting, to say the least."

Noted and passed - June 18, 2012

• Federal officials made the right call last week in choosing not to attempt to re-prosecute former Sen. John Edwards, whose recent trail for campaign finance fraud ended with a hung jury on most counts. The case was terribly complicated, and many legal experts predicted from the outset that a conviction would be difficult. The decision not to re-try Edwards doesn't mean he's innocent; it just means Uncle Sam recognizes he probably couldn't be convicted.

District 7 mess

Humorist Will Rogers once said he didn't belong to an organized political party; he was a Democrat. That appears particularly true now that the S. C. Democratic Party's primary for the new seventh Congressional District seat is mired in controversy over whether or not the votes for a candidate who had withdrawn should be counted. Complicating the situation is that the fate of the favored son of the party's hierarchy hangs in the balance as officials – and, later, probably lawyers – try to unravel the mess.

City of Camden in great financial shape

Financially, the city of Camden is in great shape. Stockpiling citizen tax revenue is neither good for the citizen paying the tax or for the city not investing accordingly. Financial stability is not about how much the city collects, but about how well the monies are used. Without increasing your property taxes, the city has made significant progress by assessing requirements and strategically planning without taxing and spending.
