The real America

I believe it to be a reasonable assumption that lately in our country there has been a state of division, if you will.

If we only follow the sensationalism on social media or in the news, we will begin to buy into the concept America is ...

Writer has a dilemma

I have a dilemma that hopefully some of you may have the solution to. We have a president that we duly elected by giving him our votes, or in some cases withholding them from Hilary Clinton.

If you ask a class of school children, "Where does racism begin?" They'll tell you, "At home, parents, family, the neighborhood, the playground." Out of the mouths of babes! Are we hard-wired to only be concerned about our own ...

A Camden Fire Department (CFD) firefighter uses a hose to wash away propane gas from this late model Nissan Maxima parked at the Camden Business Center next door to the Kershaw County School District offices on West DeKalb Street in Camden as another firefighter monitors his progress just after noon on Sept. 1. CFD Capt. Johnny Mullis said the propane tank seen in front of the car on the left was in the trunk of the car when it apparently ruptured and started to leak.
