I am appalled by the number of states across America who have introduced "voter suppression bills." About a dozen states are actively pushing legislation that would make it more difficult for college students, the elderly, disabled, and minorities to vote. It is sad that these state legislators have abandoned a real concern to ensure that all Americans are afforded the right to vote. Instead, these legislators are introducing measures to make the voting process more difficult.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Much ponderous, chin-stroking analysis has followed the Republican National Convention's un-highlight -- the 10-minute monologue by the erstwhile Dirty Harry/Blondie/Rowdy Yates when Clint Eastwood conversed with an empty chair.

Loss is a difficult part of life. It's connected to us like our skin. It's unavoidable; it's constant; it's never mistaken in the hearts that feel it. And just as skin reveals time passed, loss leaves a mark on our strength and shakes our very core. It follows no schedule.

Loss can be as impalpable as a dream not reached or as tangible as ...

I support building the proposed Camden Sports Complex and contracting with the YMCA to operate and manage it for many reasons, some of which benefit me and some because others in Camden would benefit from having a YMCA in the city. My wife and I are Senior Citizens who still happen to be working (as many more of us have to do). Working beyond age 65 means we must be fit and healthy to remain viable employees. Some of the facilities proposed for the new YMCA, including an air-conditioned walking track, aerobic and fitness machines and, we hope soon, an ...

Two women close to Adriana Laster hope she is found soon … and have a warning about the man who may be responsible for her disappearance. Her aunt and legal guardian, Dorothy Forston, of Alabama, and Phyllis Horn, the grandmother of Laster's daughter, described the missing woman as a "sweet, little kid" who grew up to be an attentive, if not always present mother. Laster disappeared last September while living with Freddie Grant, 52, who is being held in connection with the disappearance of Columbia teenager Gabrielle "Gabbie" Swainson.
Democrats in South Carolina have every right to criticize Gov. Nikki Haley. Even from many in her own party, she gets low marks for her governing style, which has tended to alienate many. Of course, some of that alienation has come among members of the Republican-controlled General Assembly who are loathe to cede any additional power to a governor -- any governor -- because it might lessen their authority.
Election Tuesday is only eight weeks away, and as we approach these days leading up to the opportunity to exercise the precious right to vote, I want to update you on the Camden Recreation Referendum Coalition (CRRC) issue and the city of Camden. Many of you have been asking about the status of the ballot-question and if the petition, signed by over 1,700 of you, has been recognized as valid by Mayor Jeffrey Graham and city council. The answer is no -- as a matter of fact, the city of Camden through attorney Charles Cushman and Columbia attorney Danny Crowe ...
