Camden Wal-Mart opens ‘The Spark’ as information ‘hub’ for Kershaw County events

In May, Wal-Mart held a ribbon cutting to introduce "The Spark" to our community. "The Spark" will serve as a hub for all information around events in the Camden/Kershaw County community. This resource will improve communication between those organizations that are making our community so great and those who would like to know more about what is going on in their community. They felt it would be the perfect vehicle to conveniently expose more than 50,000 visitors weekly, to what the community has to offer. One example of how "The Spark" would work, is if a person is ...

Pet Talk for Aug. 5, 2011

Most summer days are filled with outdoor activities and times spent on vacation. It's necessary to understand the types of diseases that may affect your pets when they travel. So, if you're the outdoor type and you like to take your pet with you, your pet may be bringing home more than memories as you venture through fields and streams.

Put YMCA proposal to a vote

In response to all the controversy of a YMCA coming to Camden, I have read articles for and against. We are going to be spending a lot of money on committees and studies by city council and county council about the YMCA. This looks to me like we are getting the cart before the horse. With so many people opposed to or in support of the YMCA, why not – before spending all this money -- place the issue on the ballot and let the people decide. This would save a lot of money.

Lawsuit No. 3

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews has been sued for the third time since taking office only a few months ago. While we aren't legal experts, we do see a few interesting developments here, the first one being that Matthews has been no shrinking violet when it comes to making statements about the way the department was run prior to his election. Of course that's not uncommon in South Carolina law enforcement circles; after all, sheriffs are elected and not appointed, and politics is part of the process. Some say Matthews continued his criticism of former Sheriff Steve McCaskill ...

Throw the bums out

Back when I was in journalism school -- in the days when Gutenberg was still trying to figure out movable type and four guys named Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were just starting to jot down their thoughts -- we were always taught to be subtle when writing opinion pieces.

Fighting two diseases

Two horrific diseases have been brought into the spotlight recently -- ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's Disease, which has caught the public eye through an "ice bucket challenge," and depression, brought into further consciousness through the tragic suicide of actor/comedian Robin Williams. Attention in such matters is always beneficial, both in terms of raising money to fight the diseases and in making Americans more aware of the challenges of such maladies.

Taming the wilderness

I jokingly call my backyard "the wilderness." My house, built in 1912, sits fairly close to my downtown street, as is the custom in the Historic District in Sumter. The Victorian cast iron fence and neat little patch of grass in my front yard belie what is happening behind my house. The deck at the back of my house overlooks a very deep backyard filled with towering oak and pecan trees. Just over the fence at the rear of the yard is a magnificent willow oak which is probably 100 years old. It rises majestically above all and makes a ...

Dealing with depression

There is help, there is healing. Many descriptions describe the downward plunge; the things that hold you down and the things that take you out. The common known things are drugs, alcohol -- addictions to things with chemical reactions that are bad for the body. The body is a chemical reaction chamber; all it needs is a catalyst and it's a brand new chemical which can put that nail in your coffin. The reactions or side effects are the worst. It's reaction and then interaction and reaction and maybe interaction again.
