Obama's pot reform goes up in smoke

I would shrug and say "So what?" to the latest details from President Barack Obama's pot-smoking past, except for one thing: he stirred so much hope as a candidate for sensible marijuana policy reforms but, as president, has delivered so little change.

When Camden was the capital of South Carolina

Governor John Rutledge and his Privy Council left Charles Town in April 1780 before the British siege of the city closed all escape routes. He journeyed north to Camden, arriving there in late April or early May. That he should go to Camden was to be expected since Camden was the only town of any size in the interior of the state at the time. Roads to Camden were relatively good and Rutledge knew and had done business with Joseph B. Kershaw for several years.

'Thank you' to Mr. Jones

I would like to voice my endorsement of Kershaw County Councilman Jimmy Jones. I've known Mr. Jones a long time on a professional level and I cannot tell you strongly enough how impressed my family and I have been with him as a servant of the county. He has always been available to me or a member of my family and if he could not pick up the phone at the very moment I called, he would promptly return the call and he always would find a solution to our dilemma.

Noted and passed - June 4, 2012

• A recent survey found that men's workplace desks are generally dirtier than women's -- that's in terms of bacteria -- and that shouldn't come as a surprise to many people. However, scientists caution that we are in some instances becoming too wary of germs, that they're a necessary part of life and in many cases are beneficial. It brings us back to that old debate about hand sanitizers and whether or not we're actually doing long-term harm by insisting that everything be germ-free. As for us, we recall the days when kids rolled around in the ...

Jimmy Jones helps solve problems

It is very seldom that we have a person holding public office of whom we are truly proud. We have such a person in Jimmy Jones, Kershaw County councilman.

In support of Jimmy Jones

Sometimes things cross your mind that you feel just need to be said to bring encouragement to those that have been a part of your life. I worked for the city of Camden and Kershaw County for many years in the Special Services Department under the direction of Jimmy Jones. Throughout those years we were constantly taught to be servants of the community and put their needs first. This principle has gone on to be a part of my life now and it has paid huge dividends. I am thankful for the input into my personal life of principles that ...

Romney's business

As Mitt Romney's campaign steps up its pace following his securing of enough votes to ensure the Republican presidential nomination, some prominent Democrats express surprise with how quickly Romney's former GOP foes have converted to his cause. Some on the Obama team expected there to be lingering dissension among Republicans over the hard-fought primary. And ironically, the president's major offensive centers around criticizing Romney's tenure as head of Bain Capital, a private equity firm that earned him millions of dollars.
