Look out for those in need around us

I am very appalled; I thought that with our economy in the condition it is in now, how can the people of Camden and surrounding areas be so set on having a Y, to bring in visitors, friends and whatever else they can think of. In my opinion, this is pure greed. I have no intentions of leaving anyone out; this includes all proprietors, lawyers and Indian chiefs and let's don't forget the mayor and his committee and all the rich. It's too bad the economy hasn't hit you all yet but don't worry, it ...

Where did Haiti donations go?

Two years after a 7.0 earthquake struck Haiti, killing hundreds of thousands, more than a half-million Haitians are still sleeping under tarps, often in camps without enough water or toilets. As another hurricane season approaches, many people are asking, what happened to the generous donations that Americans gave? Congress should make it easier to find out.

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 ...

Editorial: State of the Union

Kershaw County residents who watched the State of the Union address Tuesday night might agree with us that perhaps it's time to call a halt to the entire production. That's not a slam at President Obama, for he did nothing more overtly political than his predecessors from both parties have been doing for years. It's just that the term "state of the union" bears little resemblance to what actually occurs at the annual event; it's become little more than a political circus.

Gilland: ‘Dung on a twig?’

How would you like to be called dung-on-a-twig? There certainly are worse things in life, but certainly much better things as well. Dung-on-a-twig is one of the root meanings for mistletoe, which grows on trees. This common name comes from two parts of Anglo-Saxon speech. "Mistel" a common word for dung, and "tang" the word for twig, combine to form the word mistletoe or "dung on a twig." This name became prevalent as it was noticed that mistletoe would appear where many birds had landed on branches and deposited their excrement, nice. This puts a whole new context on the ...
