Another side of the Mahoney story?

In response to the C-I's "Opinion" March 14 titled "Mahoney," I did not feel that the paper was vituperious (blameworthy or disgraceful for those of us who had to look it up).

One hundred years ago, in 1915, 1314 Broad St. was a construction site. Excavators and bricklayers, carpenters and heating contractors were busy at their task of building Camden's first city library. It had been an arduous journey getting to that point. That journey began in 1914, as best we can reckon, at a lecture to the Kershaw County Teachers Institute. In all of the factors leading up to the acquisition and completion of the Camden Public Library there is one constant: Sarah "Sadie" Kennedy Von Tresckow.
