Local tokens

Tokens were small cardboard, brass, copper or aluminum items, usually in the shape of coins, which were issued by private enterprise ventures such as textile mills, merchants, etc. These items took the place of coins and were redeemable at the issuing entity. A study of these items reveals much about the history of S.C. and its counties.

• With partisan bickering in Washington at an all-time high, we were glad to see Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah turn back a Republican Party primary challenge last week. Hatch is one of the few senators left in the capital who attempts to compromise and reach across party aisles to get things done. We're glad the voters of Utah put him over the top, for in that state, winning the GOP primary is usually tantamount to being elected.

• Depending on one's point of view, it may feel like years or just yesterday since the name "Beechwood" was part of a headline in this newspaper. Nine years ago, an entire movement formed to block the 65-acre Knights Hill Road property's annexation into the city limits of Camden. Later, the same group, Preserve Camden for Responsible Growth, fought against some aspects of the plans to subdivide and develop Beechwood. In 2009, Camden Community Properties (CCP) purchased the property, promising to, eventually, create a retirement village at Beechwood under Planned Development District (PDD) zoning. After six years, it appears ...
