Political courage

President Obama has shown a willing to stand up, speak out and to take definitive act even in the face of political and social risk for the health needs of the poor and other who has been locked out and price out of access to health care before fulfilling his own political ambition.

More than five million Americans have Alzheimer's Disease, the tragic malady that robs people of their ability to function mentally. Countless others -- family members and friends -- are affected by the dread disease, and researchers have been unable to make significant progress in fighting Alzheimer's. It has long been suspected that a build-up in the brain of a sticky substance called beta amyloid plays a part in the disease, but such hypotheses haven't been proved and treatment and prevention options haven't improved much.

A sad day

It is a sad day in America, which is supposed to be land of the free and home of the brave when so many people have voted for no prayer in schools and no National Anthem and if they do they wind up getting sued by someone has never had a personal relationship with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We even have a book, The Holy Bible, to go by, and I want to say to the people who deny him in front of other people. The Bible says and this is Jesus speaking "If you deny me, I ...

Campaign ads

It should come as no surprise to Kershaw County voters that when it comes to November's presidential election, money is going to be the name of the game -- specifically, money to spend on advertising, much of it negative attack ads denigrating either Mitt Romney or President Obama, whichever the case may be. Ironically, voters here in South Carolina are being largely spared the endless spate of advertising drivel because the Palmetto State is considered firmly in Romney's camp, with Obama given little or no chance of winning here. Similarly, voters in states like Vermont and Oregon, where the ...

Letter: Reader says Johnny is the ‘Real Deal’

Please permit me to share my thoughts with your readers about Johnny "Mr. Camden" Deal. He was a most deserving recipient of the Jake Watson Award. That award holds a special meaning to me.

Richardson: Golf in Camden

Springtime in the South comes with a guarantee of two things: great clouds of pollen and azaleas in full bloom. Springtime in the golf world means it's finally time for the Masters.

He could watch it every minute it was on the air. Of course, he was watching and appreciating the game of golf. I, on the other hand, was gawking at the golf course at Augusta every ...
