Dear Annie for Jan. 27, 2012

Dear Annie: I am a bartender and waitress at a small local restaurant. We recently worked a big party that included drinks and a three-course meal. When it came time to pay, the customer left us a fairly large tip.

Camden ... my hometown

Hello and Happy Friday! I appreciate you stopping by to see what I have to say in today's Chronicle-Independent, our hometown newspaper. Many might comment that I already say a lot through my photographs as there are many tucked away on my Facebook page. I have the Easter Egg Hunt at Bethesda Presbyterian Church from 2009, Camden High's graduation from 2010, Food For The Soul's dedication from 2011 and the Miss Camden Pageant just last month and hundreds of others in between -- all posted on my photo page. Now it's my turn to say in words ...

Casino in S.C.?

We'd ordinarily favor a proposal that would bring a couple of thousand news jobs to South Carolina as well as a healthy capital investment and the potential to lure more tourists to the Palmetto State. But in the instance of a proposed casino near Hardeeville in the Lowcountry, we have to say, "Thanks, but no thanks." That's apparently the same reception the idea is getting from Gov. Nikki Haley's office.

'Some things I know for sure'

Over 1,000 Camden residents signed the recent petition asking the City to stop this Y project and let the people be involved in the decision that would obligate our Hospitality Tax dollars for the next 20 years.

An unfortunate series of events

It is indeed unfortunate if the City has lost the opportunity to get free money to fund the proposed sports complex. Rather than point a finger of blame at citizens who have wanted nothing more than open debate, questions answered, and dialogue for months and months concerning this sports complex, let's get to the heart of this problem. How could the City allow not just a reported loss of an ill described funding source slip away, but how has the City lost control of the leadership of Camden they were elected to represent?

YMCA a positive for community, visitors

My husband and I moved to Camden eight years ago after falling in love with the many charms that this town has to offer. The history, parks and many cultural activities, coupled with small town ambiance and friendly people, convinced us that Camden would be the perfect community for us to settle and start our family. We now have a 4-year old daughter that we regularly take to local parks, Historic Camden, the Kershaw County Farmers Market, and many of the incredible offerings of the Kershaw County Library and Fine Arts Center. While these are undeniably awesome resources, we yearn ...

Incivility in politics

Voters here in Kershaw County and across South Carolina were subjected to an endless diatribe of political poison in the days and weeks leading up to Saturday's Republican presidential primary. This endless vitriol is nothing new, of course, as the entire process seems to have degenerated into an endless bout of mud wrestling. If you need evidence that not many people in Washington are concerned about the direction of politics and civility, we'll pass along an item that we discovered not long ago.

Obama’s ‘dart’ at GOP

Lawyers of every political persuasion are lining up in Washington to have their say on the legality or illegality of the plan President Obama intends to implement regarding amnesty for illegal aliens who are in the United States without proper authorization, with one major network saying the president's plan to take the immigration system into his own hands "is a daring test of the limits of presidential power."

Pope calls for family resurrection

WASHINGTON -- News that Pope Francis will visit the U.S. next year for the triennial World Meeting of Families brings elation to Catholics, excitement to pope watchers -- and perhaps a little chagrin to some who too soon interpreted Francis' broad compassion as a precursor to doctrinal changes related to marriage.

Camden’s African-American corridor

In 2008, a group of graduate students from the University of South Carolina's Public History Program produced a study entitled, "The Camden African-American Heritage Project." It was the product of a student group assignment conducted in 2005-06. The students were assisted by many Camden residents in their search for the history of African-Americans in Camden from the Colonial period through the era of civil rights. Though able to spend only one semester researching and writing, the students pulled together an admirable overview of the lives of African-Americans here. In their final recommendations they suggested, among other things, that an ...

Sheheen: ‘It is the journey that matters most’

I try to live life as a journey full of unknown destinations. And I do believe it is the journey that matters most. During the last year, I was blessed enough to experience a journey throughout our wonderful state of South Carolina. A campaign for governor is a journey through the hearts and souls of many people and places. A statewide campaign is sometimes brutal and sometimes joyful, but never dull. I treasure that journey and thank my friends in Camden and Kershaw County for letting me experience it.
