Many questions remain regarding YMCA proposal

I have been closely following the debate about creating a YMCA facility here in Camden. As much as I would like to be able to enjoy a year-round indoor pool, I cannot agree with our city leaders that this is the best use of my hospitality tax money. First of all, the Recreation Department already operates a successful pool and owns enough adjoining land that the pool could be enclosed, a gym could be built, and new offices that the department desperately needs could be housed in the same facility on Battleship Road. Second, do we need an outside entity ...

Casey Anthony

Many Kershaw County residents are no doubt keeping in their minds the most-used cliché in legal circles: you can never predict what a jury's going to do. That certainly proved true again earlier this week, when 12 people found Casey Anthony not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter. It was a case that had captured public opinion perhaps as no other had since the murder trial of O.J. Simpson many years ago. Both defendants were acquitted despite circumstantial evidence that seemed overwhelming. Both cases also spotlighted Americans' fascination with the legal system and with high-profile crime cases.

Working class still backbone of America

I truly thank the brave workers of South Carolina who are fighting for economic justice and who voice their concern about this state's consistent disregard for the interest of the working class.

Obama's uncommon scold

An MSNBC commentator is in the doghouse over a mildly obscene on-air criticism of President Barack Obama. Fair enough. But, to me his language was less obscene than his suggestion that Obama was getting a too uppity with GOP budget negotiators.

Elgin OKs budget

The S.C. Treasury Department never gave Elgin Town Council a specific formula to predict the Local Option Sales Tax Revenue, so Mayor Brad Hanley performed the calculations and figured out the numbers on his own.

Editorial: Jordan Spieth

With Augusta being only a couple hours away from Kershaw County, the Masters golf tournament holds a great deal of allure for this area. The azaleas at Augusta National are famous for their popping colors and their beauty, but they're no prettier than those which are currently at their peak in Camden, we might add. But there's something magical about the Masters, which is ranked by many players as the one tournament they'd like to win more than any other.

Letter: Reader says Johnny is the ‘Real Deal’

Please permit me to share my thoughts with your readers about Johnny "Mr. Camden" Deal. He was a most deserving recipient of the Jake Watson Award. That award holds a special meaning to me. Jake Watson's grandmother and my paternal great-grandfather were siblings from Greenwood. Jake was a true Camden icon, as is Johnny. Equal only to my own is Johnny's love for our community. Never is he seen without that big, friendly grin. We need more people like him. Johnny is the "Real Deal."

Richardson: Golf in Camden

Springtime in the South comes with a guarantee of two things: great clouds of pollen and azaleas in full bloom. Springtime in the golf world means it's finally time for the Masters. My husband, an avid, albeit average golfer, was glued to the television when the Masters was being played. It was nirvana for him when his spring break fell during Masters Week. He could watch it every minute it was on the air. Of course, he was watching and appreciating the game of golf. I, on the other hand, was gawking at the golf course at Augusta every ...
