Amtrak station an embarrassment

I was in my hometown -- the fair city of Camden -- June 30-July 12. It is always nice to be home, where I spent the first 18 years of my life. I attended and graduated from Jackson Elementary, Jackson Junior High and Jackson High schools.

Island family

Most of the people who lived there and felt an allegiance to the crown left the area around 230 years ago. Many of the loyalists or Tories voluntarily left before the American Revolution, but those who sided and fought with the British eventually lost their homes and fled.

Rick Perry

Texas Gov. Rick Perry quickly discovered that national politics is a whole different game than statewide politics -- even in as huge a place as the Lone Star State -- shortly after he formally announced his presidential candidacy in South Carolina. Perry said Ben Bernanke, chairman of the Federal Reserve, was acting in a "treasonous" way with national monetary policy. He also said that were Bernanke down in Texas, he'd be treated "pretty ugly" because of his job performance.

Salkehatchie service

For a week, in temperatures exceeding 100 degrees, a team from the Salkehatchie Summer Service worked to physically improve the homes of needy families in Clarendon County. With hammers and saws a group of 75 high school and college youth volunteers worked to improve the living conditions of 10 homes. Leading a team was Mayor Jeffrey Graham of Camden. Salkehatchie Summer Service is a program of the South Carolina Conference Board of Global Ministries and consists of a number of work camps for United Methodist Youth in South Carolina. Over 50 camps were established this year from May to August ...

Put hospitality tax toward arena renovation

Not so fast, Mayor Graham and city council. Let's talk tourism. The National Steeplechase Museum is sponsoring a new antiques fair at Rhame Arena in October. The arena is downtown with lots of parking and extremely convenient to the interstate. Think about it -- if council had its way, the arena would have been torn down by now and taxpayers would be spending $6 to $8 million on a new YMCA on the Mather Academy property. Can we house an antiques fair at the YMCA? Can we hold the annual Firefest event at the YMCA?

The annual Godbold-Nash Memorial Ride will kick off Saturday at Camden Middle School (CMS). The ride honors S.C. Highway Patrol troopers H.M. Godbold and Jonathan Nash.

Camden residents support Graham for city council

I want to voice my support for Jeffrey Graham in his pursuit of a seat upon Camden City Council. I think Jeffrey is a unique candidate with a perspective we need. He is a family man with young children, and because of this I think he can represent the needs of many other young families in the Camden area. While all of the current council members have important and impressive qualities, the direct representation of our younger generations is imperative, and with Walter Long leaving, we do not have such a voice on the council if not for Jeffrey Graham.

Reader supports Reuwer

I am supporting David Reuwer for probate judge in the coming election. In any election, voters must ask a couple of things: does the candidate know what he or she is doing, and does the candidate possess the proper attitude to best serve the people of Kershaw County. Well, Mr. Reuwer is a practicing lawyer and Elgin municipal judge experienced in probate matters including the new, revised probate code. Mr. Reuwer is a hardworking man dedicated to the protection, conservation, and celebration of the historical legacy of Kershaw County. He has a strong need to help others; it seems to ...

Reader: ‘vote no twice’

I see signs appearing throughout the county imploring you to "Vote Yes Twice" regarding the school referenda. If you favor tearing down perfectly good schools and Camden High's football stadium, construction new ones to replace them, to the tune of $130 million plus interest; and if you want to pay higher taxes on everything you buy, then by all means vote yes.

Ten things nobody told you about being married

You've heard that marriage isn't easy, that there are going to be trials, surprises and changes of plans along the way. People also tell you it's a blast and the best decision they've ever made.

Here's a head's up of a few things you probably haven't heard before.

'The Best of Me' saves Sparks' worst for last

Imagine that someone pulled a drain plug on a majestic mountain lake. At first, you wouldn't notice anything amiss, save for a low gurgle echoing from deep under the water. But as the water line dropped, exposing the soggy shore, your heart would drop, and by the time the lake vanished away, leaving sludge and long-forgotten trash and desperate fish flopping around gasping for life, you'd realize the tragedy before you.
