Use care with keepsakes

I teach scrapbooking and sell acid-free albums and supplies. Therefore, I was surprised to see the article "Easy ways to reuse and recycle holiday gift wrap" in the Friday, Dec. 30, C-I. One of the uses listed for discarded wrapping paper was to "Use in scrapbooking or as an inexpensive matting for photos." Gift wrap is not acid-free and will cause photos and other paper keepsakes to turn brown and/or deteriorate. The other uses listed sound like really good ideas.

'Tell Johnnie I'm okay'

Having the opportunity each month to write on an array of topics continues to deliver to me absolute satisfaction. Chosen subject matter usually encompasses certain resolute thoughts that have incited my interest or stirred my conscience in some manner. This month has proven to be no different except for, perhaps, the degree in which my awareness and inference of a fastidious topic has been kindled; the painstaking topic of war. Last week, we took in the Stephen Spielberg movie, "War Horse." The story has a universal message; one that portrays to its viewers the horror of war in which men ...

Help us move forward

I believe that a person who is elected to a position of leadership should never enter the post without a solid position about the future that he/she believes is best for the people who have elected him/her. I have spent my entire life, except for my college years, in Camden, and I am proud to say that my son, daughter-in-law and grandson live here also. As I have grown older, I have watched my beloved hometown shrink and be filled with parks that became run-down, infrastructure that became outdated, streets that were filled with potholes, and a city ...

Noted and passed - April 20, 2015

• Last week's seizure by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of Old Armory Steak & Seafood on Rutledge Street marks at least the temporary loss of one of Camden and Kershaw County's premier restaurants. It is an unfortunate blow to the downtown Camden economy. Each business provides potential traffic to another and the loss of any one diminishes such beneficial ripple effects. Locals cheered the Old Armory's opening in 2006 so soon after the closing of the previous tenant, The Paddock. Many people and businesses have celebrated the holidays, proms, anniversaries, engagements, weddings, birthdays and more at the Old ...

Rich: The chainsaw assault

To be honest, I was more than a mite worried. I was plenty worried. My husband, raised not in the South or in the country, wanted a chainsaw. The one farm accessory which has brought down many a man. From an early age, I was taught respect for that chewing, sawing, respect-for-no-man power tool.

Morgan: Challenges

I was extremely pleased earlier this year to be invited with school board Chairman Ron Blackmon to participate in the Kershaw County Council planning retreat. It was a very informative experience for both of us. At the retreat, I was asked to outline what I see as the school district's most critical challenges. I've since been asked by several other groups to do the same presentation, so I thought what I had to say might be of interest.
