Citizen Rainey

John Rainey is wearing a coat and tie as he strides slowly across the grass of his 17-acre estate -- called Fox Watch Farm -- which is just outside the small town of Camden. It's after midday, and the sun is turning the nearby dogwood trees gold.

Stubborn and stupid

Many people believe what is necessary to gain a Ph.D. is superior intelligence. Such a belief is certainly a fallacy. What a person requires is two items: obstinacy and stupidity. As a person who has washed a rather large wooden house with a rag, water, and scouring powder; cut front and back yards, when yards really were yards, with a pair of scissors; and dressed a half a hog, chitterlings and all -- I know. These examples occurred in my youth, and, seemingly, I gathered only worn and blistered hands as my lessons. I did learn from an admonition from ...

Birth control redux

WASHINGTON -- Most Americans can hardly believe we're having a national debate about birth control in the 21st century -- more than 50 years after The Pill became available and decades after condoms became as commonplace as, well, balloons.

Let’s build on assets already in place

I like the idea of bike paths throughout downtown Camden. I like the idea of a carriage tour of historic residences. I like the idea of renovating the train depot and reactivating a track to and from Camden to Columbia. I like the idea of upgrading the Woodward Air Field to make Camden a true commuter-friendly town for folks who want to work in the city and yet be surrounded by the equestrian world and country living.

Focus on tourism

We're glad to see Kershaw County and the City of Camden partnering to promote tourism by creating a new position whose sole focus will be promoting tourism and bringing more people to this area. In the past, the Chamber of Commerce has had to shoulder that load as well as its more traditional mission of working with small businesses and helping to attract new ventures to the county. Those roles -- business support and tourism -- have grown more and more specialized over the years, and it makes perfect sense to have someone whose only job will be to promote the ...

Noted and passed -- Feb. 13, 2012

• We've commented on prior occasions about the recent bankruptcy filing of Kodak, once one of the most powerful brands in the world. The Rochester, N.Y.-based company filed late last year to reorganize; now comes news that Kodak will no longer make cameras, along with other products such as digital frames, choosing to concentrate instead on commercial printing technology and other products. It's a sad thing, undoubtedly, for the millions of Americans who grew up using the company's cameras and film, and it illustrates yet again that companies must constantly adapt in order to stay in ...

Bears and wolves find a voice in the wilderness

WASHINGTON -- If politicians preying upon your attentions this season fail to inspire, you might seek common cause with the beasts -- the four-legged variety rather than those running for office.

L-EHS student concerned about animal shelter

I am writing this letter about the concerns of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter. Our animal shelter has its pros and cons. The benefits of an animal shelter is it provides protection for those individuals that cannot afford the proper care for their animal. Think about it: what would our city look like if we did not have an animal shelter? There would be dogs and cats running around freely. Every day I ride down Hwy. 1, I see a helpless dog on the side of the rode with its ribs sticking out from lack of nutrients.

Power, divided

We've always believed the United States government works best when power is divided -- that is, with a president from one party and a Congress controlled by the opposite party. As of now, of course, we have a Democratic president and a split Congress, with the House of Representatives controlled by Republicans and the Senate dominated by Democrats. There are multiple forecasting models out there for the upcoming election, with most of them giving the GOP a better-than-even chance of gaining a majority in the Senate while retaining control of the House.

Aging leaves and Autumn color

Trees are fascinating biological wonders. From ancient bristle cone pines and towering redwoods out west to our widely diverse Southern forests, the life cycle of a tree provides us with year-round interest. One of the most intriguing and beautiful results of a tree's life cycle is autumn color.
