Finally we have a market-driven proposal! This is an excellent way to finance the proposed sports complex project because, if passed, people must vote with their wallet, which raises the bar significantly on the issue of moving forward with the sports complex. It is one thing for people to vote without seriously thinking about: (1) the method of finance directly affecting them, and, (2) having a well-researched, cold-blooded, accountable assessment of the probability of success.

Back in the early 1960s, the journalism surrounding politicians and famous figures was often adoring and non-controversial -- something a public relations expert might dream up. Movie stars and professional athletes were always pictured as happy and devoted to their families, although there was probably nearly as much fooling around back then as now. And political figures were smilingly looked upon as people who had nothing more than the good of the country in their hearts. President John F. Kennedy's multiple dalliances were well known but never reported.
Camden Elementary School has announced its honor rolls for the third nine-week period.
I am 100 percent American and I do not hesitate to show my picture I.D. to anyone! I am very happy to have been born in these United States 23 July 1933! I say I love it or leave it!
English varies greatly from state to state and location to location. It varies when talking with friends or when speaking before an audience. Some of it is almost unintelligible for the novice, such as Gullah. The Southern drawl differs from the Yankee vernacular. Rarely does the person speaking recognize the difference for himself. For example, the Australians told me how charming my accent was. When I returned the compliment, some other tourists from the north said, "You really told them off, having no idea I could have said the same to them. When traveling, I have been mistaken for English ...
I am a Camden resident and, even though this is a bit late, would like to respond to Miciah Bennett's article about Encyclopaedia Britannica published on Friday, March 16th, particularly this sentence:
Jean Whitley admits opening her new business, Carpet Outlet Inc. at 1123 U.S. 1 South in Lugoff, was a big leap … maybe even a "leap off a cliff," she thought at the time.
WASHINGTON -- Last week I chided President Obama for his remarks on the Supreme Court and the role of "unelected" judges. The president, wisely, has since chosen to clarify his statement, and express his (correct) view -- that courts should be hesitant to overturn acts of Congress -- in a much more appropriate way. Now there's an example of problematic behavior coming from the judicial branch, with a federal appeals court going out of its way to pick a fight with the president. Talk about judicial activism -- this is a judicial temper tantrum.

It has become somewhat of an art for me, that of studying Southern culture and deciphering what makes us different from others as well as downright peculiar among ourselves.
Our family has spent many a pleasant summer day with several families from the Dillon area and the experience is always enjoyable and the manner in which they address their friends, neighbors and kinfolk is like taking a step back in the "Old South." Everyone seems to have a prefix or you are a tourist just stopping by.
Lugoff-Elgin High School Principal Worth Thomasson braces himself for a splash of icy cold water as L-EHS football players and cheerleaders look on. Thomasson agreed to be "dunked" if L-EHS students raised $5000 by Thursday morning to donate to the United Way of Kershaw County. Students ended up raising $5300. "We wanted something that would get the kids involved in with a team aspect ... It kind of goes along with the United Way spirit, you can give a dollar, and that dollar goes a long way," Thomasson said. See more pictures in our Localife section.

• Every now and then a story just makes you want to puff up with pride. We had one Wednesday, and we'll have another this Wednesday, both on the same subject: the renaming of the I-20 bridge over the Wateree River for Kershaw County's three medal of honor winners. Richmond Hobson Hilton, John C. Villepigue and Donald Leroy Truesdell are heroes out of history in no uncertain terms. In our preview story, readers learned that Hilton charged gunners firing at his squad, firing until his ammunition was spent, killing six enemies and capturing 10, but lost an arm as ...
