Another side of the Mahoney story?

In response to the C-I's "Opinion" March 14 titled "Mahoney," I did not feel that the paper was vituperious (blameworthy or disgraceful for those of us who had to look it up). However, the articles have been rather lengthy, maybe more than just the "straightforward" facts. This may have enhanced the angry responses, and please, when did newspapers quit having to sell? Just as you wrote, many friends of the Mahoneys think "surely this can't be true." This is especially true of those of us whose children, now in their 30's, spent, literally, years over at the ...

Editorial: Jordan Spieth

With Augusta being only a couple hours away from Kershaw County, the Masters golf tournament holds a great deal of allure for this area. The azaleas at Augusta National are famous for their popping colors and their beauty, but they're no prettier than those which are currently at their peak in Camden, we might add. But there's something magical about the Masters, which is ranked by many players as the one tournament they'd like to win more than any other.

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. Jake Watson's grandmother and my paternal great-grandfather were siblings from Greenwood. Jake was a true Camden icon, as is Johnny. Equal only to my own is Johnny's love for our community. Never is he seen without that big, friendly grin. We need more people like him. Johnny is the "Real Deal."
