As a former elementary school principal and school board member in Kershaw County, I strongly support the building of the proposed Camden Sports Complex and contracting with the YMCA to operate it.

As many of your readers know, " a healthy community starts with the people and the place where we live. The depth and strength of our relationship with family, friends and neighbors is the ...

As President Obama and Mitt Romney batter each other and each other's parties ad nauseum, voters in Kershaw County and across the country continue to be subjected to the same bitter partisanship that keeps Congress and the White House from getting much achieved.

"We have to reclaim our democracy, not from an invading army but from the parasitic destruction waged in the name of partisan interest," Edwards wrote.

Normally, I use this occasion to thank and recognize these dedicated professionals for all that they have done and continue to do to keep our district moving forward.

(The fact that ...

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.

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.

Going on to liken Cruz to a carnival barker, King verbally eviscerated the Texas senator. Of course, there's ...
