Needing one win in their last three games to earn a slot in the 4A state baseball tournament, Lugoff-Elgin saw its post-season hopes go by the boards in a 10-5 loss to Blythewood in Monday's regular season finale.
For decades, presidential administrations have come up with budget figures that don't always jibe with those which are compiled by the Congressional Budget Office, the federal agency that provides budget information to Congress. Not surprisingly, White House spending and deficit figures usually differ on the optimistic side from those of the CBO, which takes a more rational, business-like and non-partisan view of spending in the United States.

NEW YORK -- It is almost clockwork: As a new presidential cycle winds around, the early primary state of South Carolina provides a defining issue for Americans and candidates to chew over.
As a taxpaying citizen I am upset with the standards the city of Camden accepts. The new concrete work at the corner of Greene and Broad is so sad. The catch basin on the southwest corner is above grade and does not catch one drop of runoff. Yesterday we had a heavy downpour in the afternoon, and not a drop was going in the drain. All the water went downhill towards town.

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.

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."

WASHINGTON -- Americans, perhaps more than anyone, worship the future and resent the past.
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 ...
