A hiding place

Life often becomes so hectic that an individual would like to hide. Walt Disney's movie gave a hint with the lyrics "Everybody needs a laughing place to go, ho, ho." If someone can have a laughing place, he certainly needs a hiding place when no laughter exists. Such a place is possible. All an individual needs is the ability to leave his body while still standing in line or facing a tirade of some sort. Of course, the individual must be able to reenter reality and have some gist of what has occurred there. I have long had a ...

Camden First United Methodist Church celebrates 14th anniversary

The rich history of Camden First United Methodist Church spans a total of 146 years. History states that the church was begun as one of the seven charges of the Charleston District when the South Carolina Missions Conference was organized in 1866. We have come a long way; from worshipping in the galleries of the White Methodist Episcopal Church prior to the Civil War to purchasing the building that they vacated when they built what is now Lyttleton Street United Methodist Church; through the partial destruction of our church by fire in 1925; to organizing, raising funds, and donating bricks ...

It’s time for labor changes

Our Republican elected representative in our state and across American is not a friend of the working class. The sad truth is that our state is a place that assures workers cheap labor and the freedom not to join a union. As a condition of employment, it is a state where workers work for less and depend on the "good will" of their employer for a decent pay.

'Purity pledge'

There are Republicans in South Carolina -- and across the nation, for that matter -- who are amazingly adept at finding new ways to shoot themselves in the foot. But GOP officials in Laurens County went to a new level of innovation when they passed a "purity pledge" requiring those who plan to run in this year's primary to adhere to a set of rules governing their social behavior and mores. Specifically, the pledge demands that candidates must, among other things, not have had premarital sex and not watch porn. The state GOP quickly dismissed the idea, noting that it is ...

Our political structure isn’t working

Regarding the City of Camden possibly suing the Farbers for lost revenue in relation to their lawsuit stopping the YMCA, regarding the anger of city officials toward the citizen referendum about the Y, one has to ask, what is the city's objective: to create community or to win at all costs?

Let court resolve hospitality tax issue

It seems that the City of Camden wants to have a "Y" or a sports complex that is against the will of a good many voters. Not only does the City Council want to disregard the petition of these voters after all criteria was met and the proper fashion of following the request of the council, these petitioners are being ignored as if there was never a mention for scrapping it by anyone having a disagreement. And now there's the enlistment of the County Council to join with the City Council and build such an endeavor and ignore all ...

Editorial: Big money Dems

The ever-present cable news shows are already fixated on the 2016 presidential campaign, with the Republican race a wide-open affair and the Democratic nomination said to be Hillary Clinton's for the asking. Of course, we'll point out Clinton was also the overwhelming favorite in 2008 until Barack Obama came along and stole her candy. But one thing's for sure, no matter whom the parties nominate: massive amounts of money will be spent.

Moment of Nature - Feb. 27, 2015

Murder is a strong word and truth be known it's not really what happens (unfortunately) when a crape myrtle, a Southern signature tree is topped, but it has become a familiar vernacular amongst plant people. If crape myrtles did in fact die when they were butchered, then the practice would stop.

Winter visions

When snow fell on Kershaw County on Tuesday, local shutterbugs took out their cameras (or smartphones) and took some pictures. In the first photo is Reid Graham and his snowman in a picture posted to the C-I's Facebook page by his grandmother, Linda Fender Graham. The second picture is a photo of some daffodils in the snow taken by former C-I editor Martha Bruce near the corner of Mill and Haile streets. It's "kind of a 'mixed message' of winter and spring," she said.
