Ariail for May 8, 2015

Editorial: S.C. Democrats

South Carolina Democratic Party chairman Jaime Harrison says he's ready to move forward with a plan to help rebuild the party in the Palmetto State after a long decline. We're glad to hear this, for we have always believed the state would function more efficiently with a viable two-party system. Unfortunately, the state has been in that position far too infrequently during the last century.

Ariail for May 22, 2015

Editorial: Judge Kinard

Ernest Kinard, who died earlier this week, was made for the law. Possessed of a keen intellect and a probing curiosity, Kinard practiced law for 24 years in Camden before being elected a circuit court judge in 1988. He remained on the bench until his retirement in 2010, and in a "keep working" program for retired judges, he continued until recently. In all his years as a judge, he never missed a day of holding court, establishing a remarkable record of consistency and longevity. Kinard mentored a number of young attorneys who practiced with him or clerked for him over ...

Moment of Nature - May 22, 2015

Nothing instills fear in the heart and soul of humans as does a snake. Since the beginning of recorded history, snakes have been a symbol of evil, treachery, poison, etc., and because of this perception, misinformation and folklore, most people hate snakes. Personally I have no problem with snakes; roaches and tarantulas are a different story, but a snake? No worries.

‘Beechwood PDD (Planning Department Disaster)’

I attended the (Camden) Planning (Commission) meeting regarding the Beechwood Plantation development, and left with more questions to be asked than questions answered. For those of you who don't know what is proposed, the developers are talking of 254 residences, rentals and condos; a 24-7 assisted living facility; and more. We have had two patio homes built in Kirkover Hills during the last couple of years; these two did not sell, they are rentals, with four cars parked in the front yard. I don't believe there is a need for this large scale development.
