High School Column: Life changes

For some people, change isn't easy. It is something that doesn't resonate well with them. Maybe it makes them a little anxious. Perhaps they know the outcome could be phenomenal, but they're terrified to step out of their comfort zone and welcome such differences with open arms. Maybe change doesn't bother them, though. It could thrill them, spinning their lives around in the best way possible. It could be viewed as an adventure or an opportunity, a way to branch out and become someone new.

Editorial: Retirement haven

Readers may recall our editorial of May 25, in which we suggested that more effort should be put into marketing Camden and Kershaw County as a premiere retirement destination. Our reasoning was -- and continues to be -- that we already have most, if not all, of the important elements in place for making our community a desirable place for retirees seeking a place to spend their golden years. Our simple, relaxed, small Southern town charm combined with a flourishing cultural scene, wide variety of outdoor amenities, quality shopping and restaurants, close proximity to larger urban areas, and generally pleasant climate in ...

Column: Change is good; you go first

As I craft my first article as the new Superintendent of the Kershaw County School District (KCSD), replacing someone who dedicated 11 years to our schools, I could think of no better way to begin than by starting with the subject of change. When you think about it, no one really enjoys change, but in the world of education, change is inevitable and fast moving. In many of our school districts across the country, the use of technology is one example of this paradigm shift in the classroom. The decreased time for feedback, increased collaboration and increased student engagement are ...

Column: Is there a Kavanaugh doppelganger?

WASHINGTON -- In one of Brett Kavanaugh's responses to allegations that he sexually assaulted a 15-year-old girl when he was in high school, a charge he has denied "categorically and unequivocally," he suggested that, perhaps, this was a case of mistaken identity.

Letter: Where is responsible, dynamic leadership?

With Hurricane Florence causing havoc in North Carolina and South Carolina for the past few days, it's made me wonder if it has to be. I know that atmospheric science is a highly complex subject and that global warming is a complicating factor. But, one never hears anymore, like in years past, about the thought of trying to do something about it. Thus the subject of responsible and intelligent, dynamic leadership.

Letter: Thanks to all who kept us safe
