In total, 80 children, 19 teachers and two parents participated.

Many questions remain regarding YMCA proposal

I have been closely following the debate about creating a YMCA facility here in Camden. As much as I would like to be able to enjoy a year-round indoor pool, I cannot agree with our city leaders that this is the best use of my hospitality tax money. First of all, the Recreation Department already operates a successful pool and owns enough adjoining land that the pool could be enclosed, a gym could be built, and new offices that the department desperately needs could be housed in the same facility on Battleship Road. Second, do we need an outside entity ...

Casey Anthony

Many Kershaw County residents are no doubt keeping in their minds the most-used cliché in legal circles: you can never predict what a jury's going to do. That certainly proved true again earlier this week, when 12 people found Casey Anthony not guilty of murdering her 2-year-old daughter. It was a case that had captured public opinion perhaps as no other had since the murder trial of O.J. Simpson many years ago. Both defendants were acquitted despite circumstantial evidence that seemed overwhelming. Both cases also spotlighted Americans' fascination with the legal system and with high-profile crime cases.

Working class still backbone of America

I truly thank the brave workers of South Carolina who are fighting for economic justice and who voice their concern about this state's consistent disregard for the interest of the working class.

Obama's uncommon scold

An MSNBC commentator is in the doghouse over a mildly obscene on-air criticism of President Barack Obama. Fair enough. But, to me his language was less obscene than his suggestion that Obama was getting a too uppity with GOP budget negotiators.

Elgin OKs budget

The S.C. Treasury Department never gave Elgin Town Council a specific formula to predict the Local Option Sales Tax Revenue, so Mayor Brad Hanley performed the calculations and figured out the numbers on his own.

Gullible and guilty

Those of us who jump for joy when we hear that Governor Haley is deeply concerned about education and is planning to dedicate $160 million in new spending for education might consider, as we bow heads in hope and tenuous gratitude, that such concern on her part is coming awfully late but just in time for her possible re-election. Better late than never? Perhaps! But better earlier, for sure. The S.C. education budget has been reduced for the last three years by more than the proposed budget raises -- $110 million in her first year and $140 million stimulus money ...

WASHINGTON -- After writing close to 3,000 columns, I've learned that people sometimes read what they're looking for, often as a result of a headline, rather than what I wrote.
