Snakes column a good hoax

I would like to thank your contributing editor, Glenn Tucker, for his brilliant article about the S.C. Department of Wildlife's proposal to release poisonous cotton-mouth moccasins into Lake Wateree. This was the best April Fool's joke ever! As I read the article, my blood starting boiling because I know there might possibly be someone out there fighting to preserve the snakes.

A gift for Camden

With the city of Camden having such a distinguished historical heritage, and with so many residents acutely and proudly aware of that heritage and the value of keeping it alive, we are delighted to see the news that statues of Bernard Baruch and Larry Doby will be commissioned and will be placed on the grounds of the Camden Archives and Museum. The work comes through the generosity of Camden resident John Rainey, who's funding the statues, and sculptor Maria J. Kirby-Smith, who will perform the artwork. Those familiar with Kirby-Smith's exquisite sculpture at the Kershaw County Library will ...

School vouchers a "lousy idea'

After having been involved in the political and governmental life in South Carolina since 1963, when I accepted a position on the staff of Gov. Donald Russell, I am still constantly amazed at how long awful ideas persist in our State.

Past sheriffs, deputies were devoted to service

I am writing this letter as a retired Kershaw County deputy, in reference to statements made by our new sheriff. First of all, I want to wish him the best in his new job. Sheriff Matthews has made several statements that the people in the past in Kershaw County did not do their job.

Ariail for March 23, 2015

March 23, 2015 | | Ariail


Noted and passed - March 23, 2015

• Friday, we reported a grand jury finally indicted 22-year-old Stephen Ross Kelly for his alleged kidnapping, sexual assault and murder of Briana Rabon. We say "finally indicted" because Briana was killed more than a year ago. While we cannot be certain -- grand jury proceedings are secret, and for good reason -- we suspect the indictments were handed down now because the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) only recently completed its forensic examination of evidence it and the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office collected. Briana, by all accounts, was a bright young lady who, at 18, had her entire life ...
