Column: What Irma wrought

When Hurricane Irma was closing in on coastal Georgia, it never occurred to us that the Rondarosa, located more than an hour's drive north of Atlanta, would be vulnerable to its viciousness.

Column: It wasn’t plastic

The year was 1958. On a cutting board beside a white enamel sink, Mom pounded fresh red cube steak with a green Coca Cola bottle, tenderizing a tough cut of meat. On other days she used that bottle capped with a perforated top to sprinkle water across white cotton shirts. As she ironed, the crisp fragrance of steaming cotton filled the kitchen. And you can bet your bottom dollar that Coke bottle wasn't going to end up in a stream, lake, or the sea.

Letter: Dollar General rezoning puts county at crossroads

At its meeting on August 14, Kershaw County Council (KCC) will vote on whether to rezone 10 acres at the intersection of Longtown Road and Wateree Dam Road. The rezoning request has come from Dollar General so it can build a store at this location. So far, after 2 readings, KCC has voted 6 to 1 (the councilman from the district, Al Bozard, is against) in favor of this request. For the reasons expressed, this rezoning would be a mistake.

Letter: Congrats to All-America City crew

More than 10 years ago, we, as mayor of Camden and executive director of the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce, tried to develop support and interest in pursuing All-America City status for Camden or for Kershaw County. We failed completely! We could not generate the support for the tremendous effort from many people this would require.

Letter: Grant program could be excellent opportunity

I have learned that the federal government now has grant opportunities to address school safety. One of these grants, a COPS school safety grant, is due on July 30, although I'm sure there will be other grant opportunities.

Letter: 29020 -- A construction zone?

What with all of the orange safety cones, drums and netting which proliferates throughout Camden, our city resembles one gigantic construction zone and will become more so as "improvement projects" continue. It seems that the S.C. Dept. of Transportation digs one hole, then moves on to dig another hole without completing the first hole. Witness the supposed truck route or truck improvement route that was begun several years ago along Springdale Drive and Boykin Road. That project was reportedly to be completed several years ago. I witnessed contractor after contractor move piles of dirt around and tear up pavement ...
