Camden’s the right place for me

I enjoyed your article in the Chronicle's June 25th edition entitled "Camden Is The Right Place To Be." It was very refreshing to hear someone else preach the attributes of our wonderful community. I could not agree with you more. As did so many of my contemporaries, I left Camden in the early '70s seeking fame and fortune. I could have chosen the path of least resistance and found permanent employment here My desire for adventure was a larger driving force than money. My intentions were always to one day return to the Wateree River Valley. Since returning I ...

Noted and passed - Aug. 6, 2012

• It's a bit absurd that the U.S. government taxes the medals that this country's Olympic athletes win. For those who take the top prize, the gold medal, they are expected to add $675 to their taxable income and fork federal taxes over on that amount. Sen.

The spirit of the Olympic athlete

It's what's inside -- the verve; the drive; the untainted grit. It's the pilot light that never goes out. It's the fervor propelling an individual to impressive heights. It's the cause and effect. It's what makes a person leap over the same hurdles hundreds, thousands of times before ever getting it right. It's what makes a person perform 25,000 dives a year hoping to get one score that will count forever. It's what makes a person realize that to win it all, you can't be afraid to lose. It's what ...

Truth meets the gaffe factory

Does President Barack Obama really believe entrepreneurs "didn't build" their businesses? Does his rival Mitt Romney really "like being able to fire people?" Welcome to summertime, when the fate of campaigns hangs on silly sound bites.

Lt. Governor

South Carolina Lt. Gov. Glenn McConnell isn't accustomed to being a figurehead. For many years, in his position as president pro tem of the Senate, he was one of the state's most powerful men. His knowledge of Senate rules and the respect he commanded in the Senate lent him unusual clout, which he was not timid about using. Then, through an unusual set of circumstances, McConnell became lieutenant governor after the former person who held that post, Kenneth Ard, ran afoul of ethics legislation and resigned. McConnell believes voters will approve a measure in November that will allow ...
