Camden churches participated Sunday in the 14th annual Palm Sunday Parade, marking Jesus' entry in Jerusalem some 2,000 years ago. David Weaver Jr., played the part of Jesus and Eeyore, the donkey, was present for the event. Unlike kings and other important figures in history who rode horses, Jesus entered Jerusalem on a donkey. The Palm Sunday Parade is an annual tradition that has become a highlight for many churches as they enter Holy Week.

In Monday's story "Chamber learns about JEEP" and the March 14 story "Chamber dues down $7,000," the $45,000 accommodations tax grant that the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce received was incorrectly listed as being from the city of Camden.

Decisions such as where to go to college, what to major in, whether to go straight into the work force, or joining the armed forces.

• The news that the city of Camden plans to install an elevator at Camden City Hall is quite welcome. It is especially so to the city's disabled citizens who have found it difficult to come to court or attend Camden City Council meetings, both of which take place on the second floor.

Installing the elevator -- which will also allow employees and visitors to reach offices and ...

She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.
The road diet -- what a mistake. Even the mayor admits it could be a mistake. When the mayor was running for office he led me to believe that he was against the Broad Street diet. Two years later, he has flipped his opinion about the diet project. The mayor's vote, along with two of the previous council members, is what placed this mistake in motion. The urgency for the vote was to apply for a grant. A grant is federal tax dollars and not free money as some believe. This type of attitude is one of the reasons our ...
