Camden native Cpl. Teneka Mercado serving in eastern Afghanistan

PAKTIKA PROVINCE, Afghanistan -- Most of the young men and women serving in today's armed forces were children or teenagers on 9/11, watching the attacks on the World Trade Center on the news. The majority of their adult lives have since been forged by the nation's need for great men and women in uniform.

Spend wisely

We have been hearing about the City of Camden and the Y. First of all, I would like to point out there is no binding agreement that I am aware of between these organizations. Next, let's look at the YMCA history for Camden.

Graham misrepresents

In his campaign ad titled "Focusing on Our Future" in the Oct. 10 edition of the C-I, Mayor Graham takes credit for several items that bear correction. First, his ad states that he is responsible for bringing the Farmers Market to downtown Camden. If my recollection of the particulars is correct, this statement is patently false. The year was 2005 and it was Rep. Laurie Funderburk and Andy Rollins with the Clemson Extension Service who wrote a small grant, the Bank of Camden (now First Community Bank) loaned the market the use of the lot, somebody else donated the tables ...

Brother-in-law may have issues with mental illness

Dear Annie: My husband's only sibling is his 65-year-old brother, "Larry." Larry's mother spoiled him rotten. To say he's lazy is an understatement. He does nothing to help himself. He was fortunate enough to win a local election when he ran unopposed, and he held that office for 30 years.

The dock was named Patriots Landing for the historical significance of the site. In 1780, American troops commanded by Col. Thomas Sumter ...

Unexpected duties

Many duties or expectations go far beyond what was anticipated. For example, my mother said, in regards to my future husband and mother-in-law, "He is wonderful, but I hate to see you become involved with her." I foolishly answered, "Mother, I am not marrying her." With a sideways look, she replied, "That is what you think!" How wise she was. Dealing with some parents as a teacher was quite the same. Nowhere is there a guide for dealing with parents. Most of mine were wonderful, supportive and kind; however, the following illustrates that dealing with a few parents is more ...
