The Fan

Dark clouds have been lifted, giving way to blue (and white and orange and black and garnet) skies -- football season is back. For this, fans of every age and team color are grateful. And with immense pride and bliss, they don the jersey of their beloved team; their team that will go all the way this season. At least that's what we, the fans, want to believe; it's what we hold on to year after year as if "it" was the winning lottery ticket; a victorious season in our clutches. Fans want to believe this is the moment ...

Moment of nature

It is fitting that I write this on my one-year anniversary date working for the city. The year has gone by so fast and I am grateful for your support. It has been a pleasure meeting so many wonderful people and groups along the way as well as getting your thoughts and suggestions for improvements.

'Courageous'

I would like to take this opportunity to say a big "thank you" to the Trivetts, owners of the Little Theatre in Camden. They very generously reduced the price of tickets for the movie "Courageous" and also donated tickets to all law enforcement officers in Kershaw County. "Courageous" was not just another Hollywood movie. A church in Georgia puts it on and the actors are actually members of the congregation and staff. Now that in itself might keep some people from going. A "Christian" movie with regular people doing the acting. Sounds to some like a low B grade movie ...

Cain is 'the real deal'

Mr. Cain was my presidential pick well before the Florida straw vote. He strikes me as genuine, intelligent, honest, and he knows his business stuff. He will give us the hope and change we need in this country. He will repeal punishing regulations and open up markets for energy independence and trade. He will lead in making the business climate friendly and inclusive so they will know what their long-range goals are and they will hire again. He will be a uniter, not a divider. His leadership will encourage Congress to work together to establish his 9-9-9 Tax Plan transitioning ...

Yesteryear -- Oct. 5, 2011

Photo cutline – Transportation provided by the Santee Wateree Regional Transportation Authority is one thing which may be reduced because of cuts in federal funds for social services. Pearl W. Branham, Lillian Bradley, Louise Jameson and Marih Martin prepare to board a van at the Kershaw County Council on Aging office as Bessie Carlos, a COA volunteer, and Alice Williams, the bus driver, assist them.

Thanks to the courageous

Courage is a word we use lightly at times. The dictionary says it's the ability to go ahead in spite of circumstances.

Legislative report cards

Surprise, surprise. Gov. Nikki Haley has handed out poor "report card" grades to Democratic legislators in Columbia, and they have responded by giving her a poor grade as chief executive of the Palmetto State. When Haley announced shortly after being elected that she planned to hand out grades to legislators, it sounded like a bad idea to us. First of all, it's arrogant. Second, it was reasonably easy to predict that members of her own party would get higher marks than Democrats. And third, it looked as if Haley had learned nothing from the contentious relationship that her predecessor ...
