In the past few weeks, our schools have been coming to life with athletic and band practices and teachers working in rooms. I want to thank everyone who has worked so hard all summer across our district to have everything ready for a new year. That being said, I usually get a lot of questions ...

‘Making do’

"Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without." These are the words of wisdom I often heard during my youth. I learned the lesson so well that I have never had a credit card or a debit card. Christian Community Ministries, Community Medical Clinic, Food for the Soul, and Wateree Community Action are a few of the many sources for help for the needy in present-day Camden. People during the "making do" generation, such as my widowed mother, had only a chicken yard and a garden. These frugal women did not just use the chicken feed ...

Merger roadblock

Kershaw County residents were no doubt surprised when the U.S. Justice Department earlier this week threw a giant roadblock in the all-but-completed merger between US Airways and American Airlines. The feds hadn't thrown up similar obstacles in previous airline mergers, and this one looked as if it was ready to be finalized. Joined by attorneys general from six states, the Justice Department said the merger would lessen competition and raise fares for passengers. The two airlines say the merger would give passengers more options and better service. Many Kershaw County travelers who use the Charlotte airport rather than ...
