Trees get thirsty, too

Summer is officially here and we now have the temperatures to prove it! Along with high temperatures come afternoon showers and sometimes downright gully-washer rains. These rain events can be quite dramatic and appear like many inches have fallen from the sky. Unfortunately, most times this is not the case. Even in the rare occasions when we do actually get close to 1 inch of rain, it falls so hard and fast that the ground has little time to absorb it.

Another 'good ole boy' lawsuit

Well let's get these ridiculous and embarrassing law suits going again. Get them back on course! They are such a good use for our country's image and above all, a great way to spend our tax dollars. Our county needed a sheriff change and now that Jim Matthews has become our sheriff and seems to be doing all the right things for all of us, he seems to have upset our country's "good ole boys."

Political courage

President Obama has shown a willing to stand up, speak out and to take definitive act even in the face of political and social risk for the health needs of the poor and other who has been locked out and price out of access to health care before fulfilling his own political ambition.

More than five million Americans have Alzheimer's Disease, the tragic malady that robs people of their ability to function mentally. Countless others -- family members and friends -- are affected by the dread disease, and researchers have been unable to make significant progress in fighting Alzheimer's. It has long been suspected that a build-up in the brain of a sticky substance called beta amyloid plays a part in the disease, but such hypotheses haven't been proved and treatment and prevention options haven't improved much.

Why was suspect out of jail?

The front page of the July 2 issue chronicles (no pun intended) the lengthy criminal record of a (drive-by shooting) suspect, Bobbin, that includes 10 offenses, including five with a weapon.

Camden's Rainey: words vs. deeds

A sad day

It is a sad day in America, which is supposed to be land of the free and home of the brave when so many people have voted for no prayer in schools and no National Anthem and if they do they wind up getting sued by someone has never had a personal relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We even have a book, The Holy Bible, to go by, and I want to say to the people who deny him in front of other people. The Bible says and this is Jesus speaking "If you deny me, I ...

Campaign ads

It should come as no surprise to Kershaw County voters that when it comes to November's presidential election, money is going to be the name of the game -- specifically, money to spend on advertising, much of it negative attack ads denigrating either Mitt Romney or President Obama, whichever the case may be. Ironically, voters here in South Carolina are being largely spared the endless spate of advertising drivel because the Palmetto State is considered firmly in Romney's camp, with Obama given little or no chance of winning here. Similarly, voters in states like Vermont and Oregon, where the ...
