Proctor a man who will be missed

Recently the Camden/Lugoff areas suffered greatly with the loss of an irreplaceable human being, Leonard Allen Proctor. After a long time serving the God he loved so well, Mr. Proctor joined the saints in glory. Mr. Proctor and I were members of New Life Christian Outreach Church in Lugoff, whose pastor is Rev. Richard Cameron. Mr. Proctor served as the building committee chairman. He was a former member of Bethel Worship Center, where he served as a deacon, Sunday school teacher, and building committee chairman.

Correction

In Monday's story "Chamber learns about JEEP" and the March 14 story "Chamber dues down $7,000," the $45,000 accommodations tax grant that the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce received was incorrectly listed as being from the city of Camden. The $45,000 accommodations tax grant was from a Kershaw County local accommodations fund. The C-I regrets the error.

Students across the county, including me, are faced with many difficult decisions that will ultimately impact the rest of our lives.

Unions

The recent furor in Wisconsin over Gov. Scott Walker's decision to eliminate some of the collective bargaining rights of public unions has died down somewhat, but the issue over public unions isn't going to go away anytime soon. Across the country, people are taking a hard look at unions populated by people who are paid with taxpayer dollars. In Wisconsin, as you'll remember, Democratic members of the state Senate fled into neighboring Ohio, thus meaning a quorum could not be present for Senate business and Walker's plan could not come to a vote. Republican senators found ...

Brotherhood of baseball

The recent announcement that a statue of Camden native Larry Doby (along with Bernard Baruch) will grace the grounds of the Camden Archives and Museum came soon after the death of Duke Snider, one of the great baseball players of all time and one of the "Boys of Summer" as immortalized in the book by Roger Kahn.

Medical marijuana

Both Democrats and Republicans in South Carolina will have advisory questions on their June primary ballots -- votes that will not be binding but are intended simply to provide some feeling for what Palmetto State residents are thinking about particular issues. As you would guess, such questions often revolve around issues particularly important to one party or another, and they're sometimes done to help provide leverage for the parties to push certain projects.

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 ...
