It is truly "unthinkable" that the Kershaw County Democratic Party would certify Sammie Tucker Jr. as a candidate for public office. To entertain that idea is ludicrous!

Nancy Ogburn and George Sandy can recall the brick streets around the old city hall which was located on Rutledge Street.
We've said on prior occasions that governmental entities sometimes tend to go overboard on paying taxpayer money to hire consultants, but Camden City Council might do well to follow through on its idea to use a firm that will help conduct citizen surveys. Mayor Jeffrey Graham and council members have been bold in undertaking major initiatives but there is a perception among some that they have been unwilling to listen to those who disagree with them.

• A major tip of the C-I hat to newly installed District 5 Kershaw County Councilman Dennis Arledge, briefly hospitalized in recent days and, therefore unable to attend his first council meeting. It would have been easy for anyone in his situation to ask to take his oath of office at council's next meeting. Instead, he arranged to take the oath, with his wife at his bedside, from former Councilman Gene McCaskill on Jan. 13. Later that afternoon, at the official swearing-in ceremony, those gathered to see others take their oaths applauded enthusiastically when shown a picture of Arledge taking ...
My parents, according to the world's definition of "cool," were not. Neither drank nor did either ever possess a credit card. Groceries and clothing were paid for in cash, utilities paid by check, and the only monthly payments they ever allowed themselves were a mortgage for a house, a short-term loan for another farm, and a couple of cars bought, over time, and paid for quickly.
