Local option sales tax

Backers of a Kershaw County local-option sales tax which was rejected by voters earlier this month say they aren't giving up and that they will again pursue efforts to get the penny tax passed, perhaps in a scaled-down version. Voters turned the proposal down by a significant margin during the general election, sending officials a message that this isn't the right time to be raising taxes.

In 2005 our dear friends, Tom and Cindy Fussell, owners of the Smokin' and Grillin' Restaurant in Camden, invited our family to take part in a small ministry they started feeding the hungry and homeless.

Camden residents support Graham for city council

I want to voice my support for Jeffrey Graham in his pursuit of a seat upon Camden City Council. I think Jeffrey is a unique candidate with a perspective we need. He is a family man with young children, and because of this I think he can represent the needs of many other young families in the Camden area. While all of the current council members have important and impressive qualities, the direct representation of our younger generations is imperative, and with Walter Long leaving, we do not have such a voice on the council if not for Jeffrey Graham.

Reader supports Reuwer

I am supporting David Reuwer for probate judge in the coming election. In any election, voters must ask a couple of things: does the candidate know what he or she is doing, and does the candidate possess the proper attitude to best serve the people of Kershaw County.

Mr. Reuwer is a hardworking man dedicated to the protection, conservation, and celebration of the historical legacy of Kershaw County. He has a strong need to help others; it seems to ...

I see signs appearing throughout the county imploring you to "Vote Yes Twice" regarding the school referenda.

Ten things nobody told you about being married

'The Best of Me' saves Sparks' worst for last

Imagine that someone pulled a drain plug on a majestic mountain lake. At first, you wouldn't notice anything amiss, save for a low gurgle echoing from deep under the water. But as the water line dropped, exposing the soggy shore, your heart would drop, and by the time the lake vanished away, leaving sludge and long-forgotten trash and desperate fish flopping around gasping for life, you'd realize the tragedy before you.
