Let’s seize this golden opportunity

My wife and I moved here four years ago. I moved back home, and in her words, she moved home for the very first time. We noticed others doing the same, both then and still now. Just yesterday I received a call from a classmate who had finally landed a job close enough to allow him to live in Camden. I've often pondered this anomaly. What is it that so often brings people back? Many reasons come to mind: the people, the incredible sense of community, the horse races, the beautiful parks, the "walkable" streets, and the safety provided ...

Retro TV revisits birth of ‘culture war’

Do AMC's "Mad Men," ABC's "Pan Am," NBC's "The Playboy Club" and BBC America's "The Hour" exploit society's barely suppressed appetite for a more sexist, racist and conservative era? Fear not. The underlying message in these depictions of the bad old days is clear: We should be better than that now, even when we aren't.

Why a Y now?

I, like many others, have listened, watched and read about this YMCA/sports complex. It all started with a real estate listing on 1/7/2011, a contract on 2/7/2011 and a closing date later in March. Wow! That was a fast real estate transaction. Discontent and suspicions started then and have continued. Shortly after the closing, there was talk of a possible YMCA partnering with Columbia. Now I am not here to oppose a Y. My children learned to swim at the Y, my husband was president of the board and was even instrumental in obtaining the ...

Braves out

The many thousands of Atlanta Braves fans here in Kershaw County are no doubt hanging their heads in despair after the team blew a 10-and-a-half game wild-card lead in little more than a month to end up missing the National League playoffs. Ironically, the Boston Red Sox had a similar run of futility, failing to hang on to a nine-game wild-card lead they held Sept. 4. The Braves and the Red Sox share one common thread: they're both regional franchises, with Atlanta commanding huge hoards of fans in the South and the Red Sox the favorite of nearly every ...
