Spend wisely

We have been hearing about the City of Camden and the Y. First of all, I would like to point out there is no binding agreement that I am aware of between these organizations. Next, let's look at the YMCA history for Camden.

Graham misrepresents

In his campaign ad titled "Focusing on Our Future" in the Oct. 10 edition of the C-I, Mayor Graham takes credit for several items that bear correction. First, his ad states that he is responsible for bringing the Farmers Market to downtown Camden. If my recollection of the particulars is correct, this statement is patently false. The year was 2005 and it was Rep. Laurie Funderburk and Andy Rollins with the Clemson Extension Service who wrote a small grant, the Bank of Camden (now First Community Bank) loaned the market the use of the lot, somebody else donated the tables ...

Brother-in-law may have issues with mental illness

Dear Annie: My husband's only sibling is his 65-year-old brother, "Larry." Larry's mother spoiled him rotten. To say he's lazy is an understatement. He does nothing to help himself. He was fortunate enough to win a local election when he ran unopposed, and he held that office for 30 years.

Patriot's Landing

Representatives from American Legion Post 17 and Post 195 join Capt. John Terry (center, by sign) with the Lugoff Fire Department, S.C. Sen. Vincent Sheheen, and S.C. Rep. Laurie Funderburk at a recent dedication of "Patriot's Landing," the new name of the refurbished boat ramp on the Wateree River at Highway 1. The project was a partnership between Kershaw County, the S.C. Department of Natural Resources (DNR), and the federal Sports Fish Restoration Fund. The dock was named Patriots Landing for the historical significance of the site. In 1780, American troops commanded by Col. Thomas Sumter ...

Unexpected duties

Many duties or expectations go far beyond what was anticipated. For example, my mother said, in regards to my future husband and mother-in-law, "He is wonderful, but I hate to see you become involved with her." I foolishly answered, "Mother, I am not marrying her." With a sideways look, she replied, "That is what you think!" How wise she was. Dealing with some parents as a teacher was quite the same. Nowhere is there a guide for dealing with parents. Most of mine were wonderful, supportive and kind; however, the following illustrates that dealing with a few parents is more ...

Editorial: Tone it down

There are many things we like about Gov. Nikki Haley, chief among them being her determined focus on economic development. Haley has been a tireless campaigner for South Carolina when it comes to attracting business to the Palmetto State, and it's paid off in lots of jobs and significant tax revenue. We also like the fact she's a female of Indian descent who helps the diversity picture in South Carolina.

KershawHealth board recognizes Napper for service

Former KershawHealth Board of Trustees member Paul Napper (center) shows off a gavel and plaque presented to him during Monday night's board meeting.

Editorial: Ted Cruz

In this day of polarized politics, you rarely hear a member of one party criticize a member of the same party, and you seldom hear a compliment thrown towards a candidate from someone who resides in the opposite camp. But earlier this week, as Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas kicked off his 2016 presidential campaign, Rep. Peter King of New York, a Republican just like Cruz, was free in dismissing Cruz as "a guy with a big mouth and no results." Going on to liken Cruz to a carnival barker, King verbally eviscerated the Texas senator. Of course, there's ...
