Yesteryear -- Dec. 28, 2011

Photo cutline -- A shining example -- Elmer Wheeler adjusts a candle in front of his home in Cool Springs, where some 80 percent of the residents of the subdivision placed candles in sand-filled paper bags along the streets Sunday evening. The "luminaria" (a Spanish word meaning light) symbolized the bonfires the shepherds are said to have lit on their way to Bethlehem on the first Christmas. Dozens of carloads of visitors drove through the area to enjoy the Yuletide beauty.

GOP primaries

Less than four weeks remain before Kershaw County Republicans will join their counterparts across the state in casting their ballots to help determine which of the GOP candidates will advance to challenge President Obama in November. While national publicity concerning South Carolina too often centers on unpleasant things, the state takes center stage in the political circus that used to come once every four years but now seems to be with us nearly all the time.

S.C. troops not forgotten by CCRA and Colonial Cup patrons

The Carolina Cup Racing Association's "Salute to the Military" at last month's running of the Marion duPont Scott Colonial Cup Steeplechase proved to be a flag-waving event in more ways than one with the unveiling of a mural of "Old Glory" sponsored by McDonald's. It was sent to a unit from McEntire Air Force Base which is currently based in the Middle East.

A depressing Christmas tree

After reading T. Cameron's article about our local tree I had to go see for myself. I have to agree with him about this tree. What has happened when the City's tree would depress Charlie Brown if he saw it? I was torn between laughing and crying when I saw this tree. If you want to get into the Christmas spirit there is a resident on Cureton Street who goes all out for the holiday and will make up for what the city lacked.

Noted and passed -- Dec. 26, 2011

• We've watched with interest the controversy over the city of Camden's proposed YMCA, and the attendant give and take on both sides. City officials certainly could have been more receptive to those disagreeing with their positions, and some of the opponents could have been more circumspect with their jeers and boos at meetings. But the ongoing debate has been a healthy exercise in democracy and the right of both governing and dissenting. However, we were disappointed to see Y opponent Herb Farber characterize Mayor Jeffrey Graham in a recent news story as a "29-year-old boy." The statement came ...

Editorial: Giuliani’s comments

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, who's never been accused of being circumspect, went over the top last week when he accused President Obama of not loving his country. Giuliani has refused to back down from his comments, and some in the GOP have defended him while others have said they wouldn't have made the same statement. Politics, of course, is involved, as both Democrats and Republicans are already jockeying for position for 2016.
