A changing of fortune

It happened in Memphis. A lot of history and interesting stuff occurs in that magical city that sits grandly on the Mississippi River. Elvis held court there, the blues grew up there and barbecue is queen. Elvis, of course, is still king.

Superman and fixing education in South Carolina

A couple of years ago a movie came out called Waiting for Superman. It was about how education in this country is broken and too many of us are simply waiting for a Superman to come flying out of the sky to fix it for us.

Healthcare.gov

The website rollout of the Affordable Care Act, popularly known as Obamacare, is almost a parody of all that is wrong with government and the way it functions in too many cases. We're not referring here to the bill itself; certainly there are those in Kershaw County who think the concept of Obamacare is a wonderful thing and there are others who see it as a poorly conceived, overly expensive plan that the country can't afford.

Camden is fortunate to have trees of this size still in existence as they are long gone in most ...
