Voter ID

Here in Kershaw County, we're like other Americans who live in a world in which we have to prove who we are. Before we are allowed to board airplanes, we must provide identification cards with our pictures on them. When we cash a check at the grocery store, the clerk usually asks for picture ID. When we pick up prescriptions at the pharmacy, we're often required to show similar proof of identification. Yet U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder has blocked a South Carolina law requiring voters to show picture IDs when they go to the polls to ...

Thank you, CPD officers, for your respect

Recently, my mother-in-law passed away. On Jan. 1st, we had her funeral at Powers Funeral Home in Lugoff. Robbie and his team went to great lengths to be sure everything was done in a very professional way. I am not writing to thank them. I was able to thank them in person. I am writing this because of the policemen who work for the city of Camden. The respect they showed as the family members and friends went through the stoplights was greatly appreciated. I grew up in Camden and as long as I can remember, our policemen stood with ...

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.
