Historic Camden to host Market Day May 14

Ever wonder why Camden's Market Street is so named? It because the town's marketplace before 1812 was located at the northwest corner of Bull and Market streets, today the outdoor basketball court across from Zemp Stadium.

A rockin' scene at the Town Green

The grass was green, the music was kickin'. The food and drink were tasty, and the children were happy ... and so were the parents. The maiden voyage of Camden's Town Green Saturday peaked, by some estimates, at a crowd of 700, many of them families whose children danced and sang and clapped in front of the stage as musical acts performed.

Open forum part of good government

I would like to commend Kershaw County Councilmen Jimmy Jones and Bobby Gary for opening up the idea of reviewing the public comment period of County Council meetings. This "public" period, I think we can all agree, is not open enough. At present, citizens can only make a statement and there is no interaction between Council and the public. The tenants of our Constitutional Republic are violated when government attempts to eliminate dialogue and open debate. Instead, government is intended to be questioned with public debate in open forums. Public discourse is critical to Representative government and to holding politicians ...

Scrapbook -- Light up the night

Hooray for spring and summer with longer days and more light. One time I was where there was no light from town at night. We were so far out in the forest that no city lights lit up the sky. We stood amazed at the stars. There was no moon that night and light came only from the stars!

Budget bust

For decades, presidential administrations have come up with budget figures that don't always jibe with those which are compiled by the Congressional Budget Office, the federal agency that provides budget information to Congress. Not surprisingly, White House spending and deficit figures usually differ on the optimistic side from those of the CBO, which takes a more rational, business-like and non-partisan view of spending in the United States.

A complaint too far

NEW YORK -- It is almost clockwork: As a new presidential cycle winds around, the early primary state of South Carolina provides a defining issue for Americans and candidates to chew over.

Quality of construction work should be unacceptable

As a taxpaying citizen I am upset with the standards the city of Camden accepts. The new concrete work at the corner of Greene and Broad is so sad. The catch basin on the southwest corner is above grade and does not catch one drop of runoff. Yesterday we had a heavy downpour in the afternoon, and not a drop was going in the drain. All the water went downhill towards town.

My third failed attempt at breastfeeding, and it's OK

I've come to know the sound all too well -- the unmistakable suction of the breast pump. In fact, my breast pump and I have spent so much time together there are times I think it's talking to me, and sometimes not saying very nice things! Perhaps some are familiar with that distinctive noise as well if they've been as unlucky as me with what I was told would be natural and wonderful.

5 must-teaches to prepare your kids for adulthood

We teach our children to walk, talk, chew 32 times, brush their teeth, pick up their clothes and be kind to others. We teach them to turn off the lights when they leave a room and not to play with matches. We teach them to drive cars and send out thank-you notes. The list is endless. We teach them so much more than the schools they attend. We prepare them for life.

Top colleges that take rich and poor kids

As students flood the campuses of the country's elite colleges this fall, those schools remain, mostly, enclaves of privilege. This persists despite the fact that there are many high schoolers from low-income families that make top grades and test scores in numbers that are twice the percentage in the general population as at prestigious universities.

Bridging the gap: Can empathy be taught?

Every semester since 2006, Kevin Blair has taught an introductory course on poverty at Niagara University. And every semester, he finds a business student who is only enrolled in the class to fulfill a social science elective, or simply needed three more credits to graduate -- not because the student is interested in poverty.

Life-affirming lessons learned in an airport

I recently flew across the U.S. from Oregon to Massachusetts via California. Spending several hours traveling allowed me to indulge in one of my favorite pastimes -- people watching. And while you might think a cross-country overnight flight would bring out the worst in people, the opposite was true. I observed several moments that proved to me the world is inherently good, and I can be a part of it. Let me tell you about 6 brief experiences that inspired me.
