A first step

Kershaw County voters, like their counterparts throughout the county, should take heart in the fact that Democrats and Republicans finally came together in Washington Monday to forge what looks to be a workable compromise on economic matters. They came up with a measure that will keep income rates at their current pace for another two years and will also extend unemployment taxes; the measure will also reduce the payroll tax on Social Security, instantly putting money into the pockets of working Americans as the country tries to pull out of its long economic tailspin.

School district should review priorities

As a child I was taught you have certain priorities in life. When you become an adult it still should have a place in your decision-making. The Kershaw County School District's recent vote to spend up to $1.25 million shouldn't even be on the list. As a taxpayer, I think keeping qualified teachers teaching is of more importance.

America's reality show: gloom and doom

NEW YORK -- Pending catastrophe is not an easy notion to entertain, much less sustain. Americans moreover have a low tolerance for doom and gloom. We are the nation of optimism, after all. We elect leaders who promise hope and change. We are the shining city on a hill.

Land purchase for new district offices 'poor decision'

Why would the local school board vote to spend $1.25 million on property for a new district office when they have the land available at both the former Pine Tree Hill School and Camden Middle School properties? How much more money will the new administrative building cost? Is there some other way this money could be spent on children rather than administrative offices?

Historic Camden takes visitors back to past during annual colonial Christmas celebration

Although it's recorded that in 1759 George Washington purchased such exotic sounding toys as "bird on Bellows, turnabout Parrot, Prussian Dragoon, and Man Smoaking," mostly the southern colonial Christmas season was a celebration for grown ups. It was a time of merriment and of thanks; a season of feasts, parties, hunts, horse races, cock fights, balls and visiting, highlighted by church services, mainly Church of England, and special customs.

• Here in Kershaw County, we don't think about bridges much, unless it's the spans crossing the Lynches and Wateree rivers on U.S. 1, I-20 and other roads. Many bridges in our county are small, made of wood or pipes used as culverts. They cross streams and branches of creeks and -- according to our recent two-part story -- not in the greatest shape. Some state-owned bridges are in the process of being repaired or replaced with state and/or federal funds. But many others are owned by the county. All but two currently open bridges that cross bodies of ...
