Roadside vendors

We're glad to see that Kershaw County Council has passed an ordinance making it more difficult for roadside vendors to do business here; many such "hit and run" enterprises produce no tax revenue, don't provide customer service and make life for small business in the county more difficult. Council last week approved such legislation.

Lifelong journey in ministry began at age 13

It was at the age of 13 that I knew I would be destined to be a pastor in the church. I was reared in the United Methodist Church, but my conversion took place in a Baptist church on Hwy. 341, Mt. Zion Baptist Church. One of my childhood friend's grandmother, Mrs. Dolly Young, invited me to Spring Revival at their church. It was on a Friday night and the revivalist was preaching from 1 Kings 18:21, where the prophet Elijah asked the children of Israel, "How long halt ye between two opinions?"

A lesson in finance

The J. P. Morgan fiasco of two billion dollars plus the flagging economy and lack of jobs made me start to think of bank closings of the past. During the Depression, the poor and the elderly did not have multiple organizations to help them such as Food for the Soul, Christian Community Ministries, and the Community Medical Clinic-nor was Social Security in existence.

Editorial: Friendship Nine

About an hour north of Camden, nine civil rights protestors from the 1960s are scheduled today to receive a measure of justice after being jailed for staging a lunch counter protest in Rock Hill more than a half-century ago. Known as the Friendship Nine because they attended the now-defunct Friendship Junior College, the men protested a segregated lunch counter at a McCrory's store in 1961; they had decided prior to their actions that after being arrested, they would refuse bail and instead serve jail sentences as a way to spotlight their actions and the injustice leading to the sit-in.
