'Courageous'

I would like to take this opportunity to say a big "thank you" to the Trivetts, owners of the Little Theatre in Camden. They very generously reduced the price of tickets for the movie "Courageous" and also donated tickets to all law enforcement officers in Kershaw County. "Courageous" was not just another Hollywood movie. A church in Georgia puts it on and the actors are actually members of the congregation and staff. Now that in itself might keep some people from going. A "Christian" movie with regular people doing the acting. Sounds to some like a low B grade movie ...

Cain is 'the real deal'

Mr. Cain was my presidential pick well before the Florida straw vote. He strikes me as genuine, intelligent, honest, and he knows his business stuff. He will give us the hope and change we need in this country. He will repeal punishing regulations and open up markets for energy independence and trade. He will lead in making the business climate friendly and inclusive so they will know what their long-range goals are and they will hire again. He will be a uniter, not a divider. His leadership will encourage Congress to work together to establish his 9-9-9 Tax Plan transitioning ...

Yesteryear -- Oct. 5, 2011

Photo cutline – Transportation provided by the Santee Wateree Regional Transportation Authority is one thing which may be reduced because of cuts in federal funds for social services. Pearl W. Branham, Lillian Bradley, Louise Jameson and Marih Martin prepare to board a van at the Kershaw County Council on Aging office as Bessie Carlos, a COA volunteer, and Alice Williams, the bus driver, assist them. The women live in Lugoff and Elgin and come to Camden for shopping and doctor's appointments.

Thanks to the courageous

Legislative report cards

Surprise, surprise. Gov. Nikki Haley has handed out poor "report card" grades to Democratic legislators in Columbia, and they have responded by giving her a poor grade as chief executive of the Palmetto State. When Haley announced shortly after being elected that she planned to hand out grades to legislators, it sounded like a bad idea to us. First of all, it's arrogant. Second, it was reasonably easy to predict that members of her own party would get higher marks than Democrats. And third, it looked as if Haley had learned nothing from the contentious relationship that her predecessor ...

Noted and passed - Nov. 17, 2014

• Once again, we mention the good work of Brian Mayes in this space. Seven years ago -- in response to the death of Camden High School student Michael Smith in Kershaw County's only gang-related shooting -- Mayes said the community had to become "a better gang than the gangs." What he meant is Camden and Kershaw County had to offer young people alternatives to gang life and choices which could land them in jail, or worse. Two events this month prove Mayes has planted good seeds we hope will bear fruit for generations to come. First, the official ribbon cutting ceremony ...
