Low paid state workers

It's a shame the way the Department of Transportation pays workers that work on highways patching roads, cutting grass, opening clogged pipes, etc., etc.

Owls: myth and mystery

by Josh Arrants

Each winter, as the colder temperatures settle farther south and thin the humidity in the South Carolina air, I look forward to the earlier sunsets and the longer nights. There is an enchantment that accompanies the darkness and it isn't difficult to understand why so many cultures throughout history have held reverence for the creatures that inhabit the night. To early humans, any animal that was able to succeed behind the deep purple veil of night must surely be magical or possess abilities not granted by anything of this realm. Perhaps it is this reason that ...

Thank the road crews

I would like to commend the S.C. Department of Transportation, city of Camden and Kershaw County road crews for their work during last week's snow/ice storm. I and many of our deputies were on the roads and found them to be in better shape than we expected. I also appreciate the hard work of the various power companies for preparing for a snow/ice event by keeping trees trimmed away from power lines. Power outages were minimal in Kershaw County and where power was lost, it was quickly restored. That was a blessing. If you see one ...

Once upon a time-ish

WASHINGTON -- It is easy these days to imagine that one is living in a fairy tale, albeit a dreary one.

The storm

Last week's forecasts of an "epic winter storm" in the South had everyone in Kershaw County scurrying around trying to get prepared. Of course, it's an old joke that if a few flakes of snow are forecast, Southerners flood grocery stores to stock up with milk and bread -- we've never quite understood why milk and bread -- and supermarkets in this area were indeed beehives of activity early last week as people prepared for possible power outages and periods of being homebound.
