What next, Camden?

I thought the hospitality tax was to be used to bring in tourists. How will the YMCA do this? Who will be willing to travel to Camden just to work out, or to take a swim? Are the people just outside the city limits the tourists the city is counting on? Those of us who don't live in the city limits still pay the hospitality tax because we have no choice; if we want to enjoy the local businesses there, we have to just go along.

Lessons from a failed doom

Harold Camping, the religious broadcaster who said Judgment Day would come last weekend, now says he doesn't want to talk about that anymore. I'm sure he doesn't. But I don't believe he has received enough ridicule.

Not realizing until it hits close to home

I am compelled to write this letter after reading the letter that was written by Officer Christopher Phillips in the Chronicle-Independent on Friday, May 20, 2011. He was writing from the standpoint of being a member of the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office staff. I'm writing from a citizen of Kershaw County's view. This has been a hard week for a lot of people, especially our law enforcement officers. I was really grateful, happy and sad after reading his letter.

“Robert Mills: Designs for Democracy”

Robert Mills was the first American born and trained architect. He called himself "Robert Mills, Architect of Public Buildings." Indeed, Mills established a new scale and standard for public buildings in Washington, D. C. when he designed the Treasury Building, the Patent Office, and the General Post Office in the 1830s and early 1840s. In other parts of the country, Mills designed buildings that were sensitive to regional values and local architectural traditions. Always his attention was on permanency and fireproofing for his public buildings.
