Camden’s Robert Mills jail

When you are researching Robert Mills, South Carolina's first superintendent of public buildings, you inevitably end up trekking off to the South Carolina Department of Archives and History, the repository for South Carolina's historical state documents. We have an "inside track" there. One of our staff members, Sarah Murray, is married to Robert Murray, a long-time state archives employee. As a prelude to some of our research trips there, we ask Robert to scope out our prospects when the on-line database at the state archives does not yield what we are looking for. Sure enough, Robert found that ...

Letter writer supports Hartis

Kershaw County, as in all counties, must collect tax revenue in some manner in order to provide, improve and maintain the things that make living here the pleasure we all desire.

The desirable strategy is obvious. The only question is how do you do that, and the only realistic answer is to create more jobs for current and future residents of the county. It goes without saying that new job ...

Social Security office

Given the budget restraints that virtually all government agencies are facing, we understand why the Social Security office at 1111 Broad St. in Camden closed. Dollars are tight, and officials say Uncle Sam will save more than $3 million during the next 10 years by shutting down the local facility. But we'll hand failing marks to the agency for the way it handled the shutdown, notifying few people and making no attempt to contact its clients and the media, which could have spread the word of the shutdown.
