As my family and I move to Aiken, I would be remiss if I did not share my gratitude to this community for all that you have done for us. My husband, KT, grew up here and has loved Camden his entire life. Being from up north, I was unsure if a Michigan girl would fit in. Will Camden accept me? The answer was "yes." Not only did Camden accept me, they allowed me to grow as a mom, a wife, and also as a teacher. I spent five years in this school district, first at Mt. Pisgah and Bethune ...

With spending deficits that can't be sustained without driving this country to financial ruin, lawmakers in Washington have lots of choices before them. So far they seem to be ignoring them. But their job isn't easy, and this week's New York House of Representatives race, in which a Democrat captured a seat in a traditionally Republican district, became a referendum on cutting Medicare benefits, and voters said they didn't like that.

I thought the hospitality tax was to be used to bring in tourists. How will the YMCA do this? Who will be willing to travel to Camden just to work out, or to take a swim? Are the people just outside the city limits the tourists the city is counting on? Those of us who don't live in the city limits still pay the hospitality tax because we have no choice; if we want to enjoy the local businesses there, we have to just go along.
Today was the last "Lunch and Learn" at the Health Resource Center. For so many in our community, it was a sad day. The center was a valuable asset to Kershaw County and will be dearly missed. A big thank-you to the wonderful staff.
