Scrapbook for July 6, 2011

Independence Day (July 4th) is a great holiday! We don't give gifts. And most people don't send "Happy Fourth of July" cards. Families have traditions how to celebrate. For me, it's parades, fireworks and food! Most of the foods we think of for this holiday are quite simple. Hot dogs, hamburgers and barbecue are at the top of my list. It's a case of "put it on the grill and sit in the shade." (One may guess that this is my day out of the kitchen.)

City's leadership failing its citizens

As a public citizen, I take offense at the manner in which the business of Camden is being conducted. Suggesting (in public) that "council members have been giving out false information" shows, in my opinion, a lack of leadership abilities. If the Mayor has a problem with Council members or members of the public, he should deal with that problem as any good businessman does -- in private. As a public citizen, my statements (a year or so ago) were also called into question by the Mayor (in the press) regarding a meeting about the railroad depot -- there could be others ...

Noted and passed

• Spin is a way of life in Washington, but House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi carried it to new heights last week. When George Bush was president and Democrats controlled the House, she blamed everything in the world, maybe even including bad weather, on Bush. Now that Barack Obama is president and the economy is still struggling, she blames all the world's woes on Republicans, who have a majority in the house. "They hold the power," Pelosi says. Right.

Editorial: Working together

Kudos to our various law enforcement agencies for working together to get some folks off our streets who needed to be stopped. At the top of our list are Bethune Police Chief Joey Cobb, Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) and U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for arresting two people (and there may be more to come) for the June 23 armed robbery of Sandhills Bank in Bethune.

Letter: Reader’s proud of people in Charleston

Words fail me to express just how proud I am of the people in Charleston for the class they have exhibited in handling a senseless, tragic act of violence committed by a psychologically impaired individual. In this day and time, when our society seems to be seeking lower and lower morals and displaying less belief in God, it is the first and most encouraging sign of hope for salvation of our society I have seen in a number of years.

Gilland: The Snake Tree (Part 2)

(In last month's column, Camden Urban Forester Liz Gilland started a story about a snake in a tree in a city right of way. When she left off, Gilland had called a wildlife trapping company -- which didn't handle snakes -- and naturalist Austin Jenkins, who suggested it was best to leave the snake alone.)
