Rule of law in a recession

In 1776, John Adams published "Thoughts on Government." This document was highly influential in establishing the foundations and framework of our nation. Two very important concepts Adams promoted were that America ought to be a nation of laws, not of men, and the separation of powers between the executive, judiciary, and legislature.

How times have changed

Recently there was an interesting piece of information in a popular newspaper stating that less than 10 percent of the families in the United States had a member of the family who had served in the military.

When children should step in to help parents

Dear Annie: I am concerned about my mother, a 66-year-old widow of 15 years. When my father was alive, Mom worked full time, kept a reasonably clean house and raised two children by herself. (My father was an alcoholic who was not around much.) In the years since Dad died, however, the house has gone to ruin.

Tucker will stand up for voters

I was undecided initially about who would be the best candidate for Kershaw County sheriff. However, after reading the article I realized who would be the person with the character needed to represent the people of Kershaw County.

Rhame Arena

We're glad to see that the city of Camden is exploring alternatives for aging Rhame Arena. The building is becoming more dilapidated with each passing year, and something needs to be done, whether it's razing it or restoring it. Of course, money is a factor, just as it is in all government decisions these days. We will say that city officials have overworked the bureaucratic jargon in their appraisal of the situation, saying an "adaptive reuse" could be a possible alternative. We are assuming "adaptive reuse" means repairing the building and making it feasible for some type of ...
