Cinderella dances her way into Camden Thursday.
When snow fell on Kershaw County on Tuesday, local shutterbugs took out their cameras (or smartphones) and took some pictures. In the first photo is Reid Graham and his snowman in a picture posted to the C-I's Facebook page by his grandmother, Linda Fender Graham.

It's "kind of a 'mixed message' of winter and spring," she said.

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who's never been accused of being circumspect, went over the top last week when he accused President Obama of not loving his country. Giuliani has refused to back down from his comments, and some in the GOP have defended him while others have said they wouldn't have made the same statement. Politics, of course, is involved, as both Democrats and Republicans are already jockeying for position for 2016.
Republicans seem ceaselessly enamored of litmus tests, but the newest one -- Do you believe President Obama loves America? -- makes birthers seem witty.
On Feb. 5, around 1:15 p.m., students at the University of South Carolina (USC) received a text message warning "SHOTS FIRED" -- two words which would send chills and panic through the large campus that is home to nearly 32,000 students.
I wish to complement your columnist, Josh Arrants, for the wonderful articles he has written for the Chronicle. I have read only three of his articles, but I have truly enjoyed each one. In the last one, he said he was leaving Kershaw County and I could only think of the loss to your paper.

Few resources are as inexpensive yet inherently valuable as the daily newspaper. For as little as the loose change in their pockets, readers can get all their local news, as well as learn what is going on in their communities and, for sports fans, what happened during last night's games.

One thing which makes Camden so appealing is its attention to and love for trees. The city is graced with thousands of them, and they add immeasurably to the atmosphere of our municipality. The Camden Tree Foundation and its many volunteers work tirelessly to plant new trees and keep existing ones healthy, and the city of Camden has had the foresight to hire a professional to oversee the arboreal health of the area. But a recent newspaper column by the town's urban forester, Liz Gilland, was a bit troubling in its tone.
Recently, a rather important occasion went unnoticed in Camden. Bob Sheheen retired after 38 years on the board of the Carolina Cup Racing Association. In many of these years, he served as vice chairman.

All it was going to cost was $130 million plus interest. But, fear not, they also asked us to approve a "penny" sales tax to pay for it.
