Breivik's real enemy: himself

Anders Breivik, the far-far-right-wing monster charged in Norway with the biggest mass murder by a single gunman in modern memory, reminds me of how often delusional minds hate others for what they really see in themselves.

Why they teach

I enjoy summer as much as anyone. By about mid-July, though, I am very ready for the new school year to begin. There are probably a fair number of parents who feel the same way, but maybe for somewhat different reasons. The feeling of renewal that a new school year brings is always exciting.

Noted and passed

• TV personality Alex Trebek is well known for asking "answers" on "Jeopardy!" but not as much so for chasing down intruders, which he did last week after someone invaded his hotel room. Alas, Trebek suffered a ruptured Achilles tendon while chasing down the violator, and he has undergone surgery. We hope he'll soon be recovered, as we (and legions of other "Jeopardy!" fans in Kershaw County don't want to have to miss him behind the lectern of any episodes.

City leaders looking out for youth

So the city of Camden is proposing to partner with the Young Men's Christian Association (YMCA) to try and stem the trend of Camden youth being involved with drugs and gangs and you'd think the suggestion is to establish an association with the Communist Party! The mission of the YMCA is community centered, nurturing the potential of kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility. We need organizations like the YMCA.

The recreation center/YMCA issue

Many of us would like to see a new recreation center in Camden if it met community needs and was affordable. However, it is obvious that the proposed YMCA concept does not have broad support and, in fact, faces significant opposition from most citizens for apparent good reasons. To gain public confidence and support the city must step back and develop a clear vision of what can be done to better meet community recreation needs within reasonable financial limits if they want a new recreation center.
