Thank you, Kershaw County

As my family and I move to Aiken, I would be remiss if I did not share my gratitude to this community for all that you have done for us.

Not only did Camden accept me, they allowed me to grow as a mom, a wife, and also as a teacher. I spent five years in this school district, first at Mt. Pisgah and Bethune ...

Entitlement spending

With spending deficits that can't be sustained without driving this country to financial ruin, lawmakers in Washington have lots of choices before them. So far they seem to be ignoring them. But their job isn't easy, and this week's New York House of Representatives race, in which a Democrat captured a seat in a traditionally Republican district, became a referendum on cutting Medicare benefits, and voters said they didn't like that.
