Mystery couple

The C-I and the Kershaw County Library need your help to solve another mystery. This time, it's not only to identify the couple in this picture, but to whom the photograph belongs. The photograph was one of many found with a book returned to the Library's main branch in September. The mix of other photographs appeared to range in date from the 1950s to somewhat more recently. They included wallet sizedand larger photographs. If these are your photographs, or you think you might know who owned them, please go to the Camden main branch, 1304 Broad St., or ...

Noted and passed - Jan. 20, 2014

• The concept of balanced reporting in today's national media is pretty much a joke. Fox News isn't going to hide its favoritism of right-wing politicians, while MSNBC (and virtually all other national broadcast outlets, including the three major networks) cannot abide anyone who isn't a liberal. Pundits have had a field day with New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie and the so-called Bridgegate affair. The general response from analysts on the left has been, "Well, he says he didn't know about it and we are going to take him at his word, but if he did know ...

The General Assembly: stay tuned

I have some of my most interesting conversations with community members in informal settings like the grocery store, the Farmers Market, convenience store gas pumps and church. One Saturday this past summer while I was eyeing some Silver Queen corn at the Farmers Market, a lady I've known since I moved here asked me why I spend so much time talking about politics and legislation.

State leaders aren’t great

Great leaders understand that by empowering other people, they become more powerful. Jesus, Mahatma Ghandi, Mother Theresa and Martin Luther King Jr. are good examples of people who understood this philosophy. Unfortunately, very few politicians in Columbia understand this concept. Otherwise, our state would have a first-class education system, a functionally ethical government, outstanding health care for all people, and safe roads. Hopefully, one day, we will have the courage to elect more politicians who understand that by empowering the electorate, our state becomes a stronger democracy of engaged citizens.

Glenn McConnell

Camden and Kershaw County have had a long, pleasant relationship with the College of Charleston. Countless students from this area have attended school in the Holy City, and there aren't many people who have gone there and not liked it. So it was particularly interesting when Lt. Gov. Glenn McConnell announced he would not seek re-election but would instead throw his hat in the ring to become president of the College of Charleston.

Robert Mills’ trail in Camden

When I was a pre-teen, I absolutely devoured every Nancy Drew mystery book I could check out of the Charleston County Library or borrow from a friend. Oh, the adventures Nancy took me on as she snooped out the trail of a mystery. Each little clue she found led to another and another and they all eventually solved the mystery. The exotic situations in which she became involved were fascinating. She always solved the mystery, through each one's twisting, turning plot. Clue by clue.
