Keep thy word

Not long ago, a friend of mine was huffing, puffing and carrying on something awful about an injustice she had recently suffered. She had dealt with someone rather devious and the result was, well, rather devious.

Noted and Passed

• So, voters will have to go back to the polls a week from Tuesday, thanks to runoffs for one local race and two state races. While it wasn't inevitable, having three people vie for the Republican nomination for Kershaw County Council chairman certainly increased the chance for a runoff. At one point during election returns, it appeared Julian Burns hit the magic 50.1 percent to avoid a runoff, but voters turned out to be too split between him and challengers Gene Hartis and Ben Connell. Hartis came in second, but decided not to face Burns a second time ...

Summer school work

I was talking with a community member recently who asked me what we do all summer since school is out. Although summer is obviously a time that schools are closed and teachers and assistants are off, the level of activity across the school district is actually pretty intense. Preparing to open school in a district with over 10,000 students and twenty buildings with a comprehensive instructional and extracurricular program is a huge undertaking that actually begins long before the previous school year has ended.

Graham and Cantor

Politics is often surprising, and trends don't always develop the way the so-called political pundits predict. Nowhere was that more evident Tuesday than in South Carolina and Virginia. Sen. Lindsey Graham swept to a resounding Palmetto State victory over a host of primary opponents, winning the nomination without having to endure a run-off, while in Virginia, U.S. House Majority Leader Eric Cantor went down to a surprising defeat, knocked off by a little-known, under-financed Tea Party candidate.

‘I am one of them’

I am a Green Beret, albeit an older one. I haven't worn my "Green Sponge" in over 40 years. I am also a Camden resident. When it was announced that my fellow Special Forces Association soldiers would be visiting the Revolutionary War Park (on Thursday) I made certain I would be there. It was a bitter-sweet experience.
