People who truly care

Recently, Camden lost a wonderful lady. Alanna C. Shepherd passed away at KershawHealth hospital. My grandmother suffered a massive stroke and after some time spent in the ICU, she was then sent to the Hospice floor. The care that she received was incredible. Everyone treated "Nana" so nicely. They treated her with dignity and respect. Robin, who came in the room to make Nana more comfortable, was so, so sweet to her. She talked to her the entire time she was in the room. Jim and Cathy were angels to my family and Nana. They both truly display a caring ...

Rap in class

In an effort to improve literacy at Lugoff-Elgin Middle School, students spent the last 30 minutes of each day in enrichment. For several weeks, students read aloud "The Bully" and participated in activities related to the book. Students kept a journal and discussed the book with their teacher. A few students in Lynn Weeks class – including Kedar Jennings, Parker Gogan and Ryan Bland -- decided to "rap" the story to their classmates. It was exciting to see every student actively engaged and participating during the activities.

Healing the community

County Councilman Stephen Smoak is to be commended for his comments, on recreation facilities, at the Jan. 24th council meeting. Based on what he and the chairman of council said, I believe Councilman Smoak understands both the recreational and economic needs of the community. I believe that the members of the County Council Recreation Committee will also support a cooperative effort with the City of Camden to provide new and improved recreation facilities.

10 signs your emotional life may need a tune-up

Being emotionally healthy is like owning a well-running car. If your vehicle is taken care of, you can get through construction zones, traffic and bumpy dirt roads with no trouble. If your car is a run-down old clunker, you won't be able to rely on it to get you where you are going on your terms. This comparison also holds true for a well-functioning brain. A good therapist is like your brain's mechanic. Here are 10 signs that indicate a professional might be of some help in tuning up your life:

Terrorists seize home to Iraq's second largest oil refinery

The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has recently taken over the Iraqi cities of Mosul and Baiji, the second of which is the home of Iraq's largest oil refinery. The accompanying infographic shows the development of ISIS and its most recent attacks. ISIS pledges allegiance to al-Qaida, and as ABC News reports, it is proving to be the undoing of the United States' decadelong efforts to establish democracy in the embattled country. With the country's oil supply at risk, will the West intervene again? Is the fight against terrorism becoming a lost cause?

Noted and passed - Sept. 15, 2014

• What a boon the S.C. Equine Park has been for Camden and Kershaw County! And now, with word that a second, larger covered arena will be built -- possibly as soon as this winter -- the park should ultimately bring even more people to the area than it already does. Think on this: even with the arena already in place, the equine park has been booked an average of 30 weekends each year, with an economic impact of $4 million. Imagine if, with the second arena, the park could be booked 45 or even 50 weekends each year. How much would ...

What the president said

Last week, I called for going after ISIL (or ISIS or IS, the Islamic State as it wants to call itself now), in full force. Admittedly, I wasn't very specific about that. Some may have thought I meant "boots on the ground," as opposed to only the air strikes the U.S. has already participated in.
