As part of Doby's Mill Elementary School's Farm to School grant, which encourages students to eat locally grown fruits and vegetables, the library was able to purchase dozens of books on gardening and healthy cooking and eating. On a recent visit to the library, students Keymoni Hill, Mitchell Loudermilk, Ashton Horton, and Kayden Melvin hungrily perused some of the new selections.
Even in the best of times, it's important for those of us having enough to meet our own needs to share our material blessings with those who don't.
As much as we would all like to believe that judges are not influenced in any way by politics, the real world just doesn't work that way. Those who sit on the bench can't help but be influenced by the philosophies they have developed over their entire lives. So with the U.S. Supreme Court's decision to hear arguments about the fate of President Obama's health care plan, we can all brace ourselves for a firestorm of rhetoric from pundits, commentators and strategists, many of whom will see a sinister plot in the entire episode. Compounding ...
Thank you for your even-handed coverage of the debate over a proposed city-built sports complex that would be operated by the Columbia YMCA. The headline in Friday's Chronicle-Independent might tend to make someone think I am an opponent of a new sports complex for our city/county. I am not. However, I have worked to secure signatures that call for a referendum on the issue. A binding referendum would settle the dispute and determine the will of the citizens of Camden.
Ward Ratz is the owner of The Dog House, a hot dog cart on Broad Street. This is a great addition to the Camden restaurant scene. Ward has great products and has in a few short months gained a good following of satisfied customers who look forward to his food.
On Veterans Day, 11-11-11, Doby's Mill Elementary School second-graders put on a tribute show for the veterans. It was one of the most meaningful, well-done, beautifully executed shows I have ever seen and almost unbelievable to have been done by such young children. There had to be many, many people doing the work to put this together, practice the children and see that all went according to plan, and they are to be greatly thanked for their hard work and dedication and love.
WASHINGTON -- Most Americans would agree that the most memorable moment from Wednesday night's debate was when Rick um, um, um, whateverhisnameis couldn't remember the third leg of his own policy for streamlining the federal government .

During the last week, we have published two reports on KershawHealth. The first, growing out of the hospital's most recent board of trustees meeting, focused on its market share. It is relatively healthy, thanks to KershawHealth's being the only hospital in all of Kershaw County. More people living in the county turn to KershawHealth for emergency care than anywhere else. However, the report -- broadly speaking -- noted a decrease in market share in outpatient services and only slight increases for inpatient services.
CHARLESTON, S.C. -- By all appearances Friday morning, as thousands lined the street waiting (and wilting) for hours in 90-degree heat to enter the funeral arena where President Obama was to deliver a eulogy for state Sen. Clementa Pinckney, racial unity seemed a comfortable fact of life.
Several years ago, my wife and I, along with our youngest son, his wife and their children, attended a Fourth of July celebration in Bath, Maine. Bath is a picturesque little city which only Maine seems capable of providing. It is also a seafaring town, home to the Bath Iron Works, where ships have slid down the ways for close to 200 years.
I was browsing the internet looking at different sites listing historical events of the past 100 years and was surprised to see how much of history had been left off. So many events which have taken place during the past century which have been instrumental in the growth of this country have been left out of our history books and articles of today.
