Same hymnal, different song

The proposed Camden Sports Complex has become a matter of considerable debate within the Camden community. Sides have been taken, strategies employed, and divisive positions adopted that have resulted in a contentious atmosphere in our community. The Camden Referendum Recreation Coalition (CRRC) and the Camden For the Y organization are agreeing to disagree on some issues. However, we agree on many more, as we recognize we share a common cause.

Girl Scout cookies up for sale

NOTE: National media has been covering the story about a new Girl Scout cookie called Savannah Smiles. That is NOT being offered by either council in South Carolina. There are two licensed Girl Scout cookie bakeries in the United States and South Carolina councils both use ABC Bakers -- not the one that introduced the new cookie. As included in the news release, our new cookie will be released next year.

Dear Annie: My pregnant granddaughter smokes. She has switched to electronic cigarettes, telling her husband that these are completely safe and will not affect the baby in any way. She also claims there is no danger of secondhand smoke.

Noted and passed

• We're glad to see that Alzheimer's Disease is finally getting the attention it deserves as far as efforts to combat it. Health experts met recently in Washington to make plans for the first national plan to fight the horrid disease. The top goal in the early draft of the National Alzheimer's Project Act is to prevent and effectively treat the malady by 2025. Finally, public funding and attention could rival that given to cancer and heart disease, and that, of course, is a good thing for the millions of families affected.

YMCA would attract families, spark growth

Two and a half years ago my husband and I decided that it was time to plant roots closer to family. I grew up in a military family bouncing from place to place about every four years so picking the right time to move with minimal emotional repercussions for our daughter was important to us. Growing up, I tried to understand that my parents were making major sacrifices for our country and respected that. With that said, as a kid it always came down to the fact that it took a lot of effort to pick up and make new ...

The event was coordinated by Jennifer Lanier, a University of South Carolina intern under the supervision of Anne Lemieux. Students were given 30 seconds to "sell" their book to the student across from them and then they rotated. This experience gave the students the opportunity to discover new books they might be interested in reading and ...

Legislature questions dredging permit

The port issue heated up this week at the State House. Both the House and Senate have resolutions pending that would suspend the authority of the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) for all decisions it has made since 2007 regarding the navigability, depth, dredging, wastewater and sludge disposal concerning the South Carolina portion of the Savannah River. The legislature argues it gave this authority to the Savannah River Maritime Authority by statute in 2007.

Transparency

Operating under the simple premise that citizens have a right to know as much as they can about how their government officials operate, and how that affects governmental agencies as a whole, we almost always favor laws and regulations which require transparency in government. Transparency, of course, is an overused word, but it basically means that government agencies must operate in a way that allows citizens to observe what's happening, and even to have input about what's taking place.

Sheriff responds to firearms discharge ordinance decision

The committee to study whether or not Kershaw County should enact some type of firearms discharge ordinance finally came back with its finding. As I fully expected, there will be no ordinance of any kind to deal with this growing problem. William Tetterton, a criminal defense attorney, former prosecutor and friend of mine chaired this committee. Mr. Tetterton was against any kind of firearms discharge ordinance from the beginning, so it seems a little disingenuous that a man who was strongly opposed to any firearms discharge ordinance would chair a panel deciding on whether or not one should be enacted.
