How important is it to have presidential candidates who, when talking about Libya, know where Libya is?
Camden was at its finest last weekend when the Steeplechase Museum put on a very successful antique show bringing in dealers from seven states, buyers from as far away as Ohio and Alabama and visitors who stayed at our hotels, ate at our restaurants and supported what Camden has to offer. The antique show was held at the Rhame Arena that was transformed into a beautiful exhibition building. Everyone was impressed with what was done to a building that has been utterly neglected and is now is being cast aside for something newer that can't be used for events ...

It will come as no surprise to most Kershaw Countians that the so-called Washington "super committee" which is charged with coming up with a plan to rein in runaway deficits is not only failing to make progress but now has been witnessing back-and-forth sniping between its members. It's just the latest chapter in a rancorous debate between Republicans and Democrats in Washington, with the loser, of course, being the American taxpayer.
So here's what one doctor told women runners who wanted to compete in distance races back in the early 1960s:
If you are over 50 years old, or were raised in a small Southern community or "from these parts," then you may have a better appreciation of this story than others would.

Dear Annie: I have been married to "George" for more than 20 years. For most of this time, there has been tension (to put it mildly) between my husband and my mother. He rubs her the wrong way, she snipes at him, and he snipes back. I've had several conversations with them over the years, asking them to be more tolerant of each other, if only for my sake. That works for a while, but eventually, they return to their old ways.
The following real estate transfers were recently recorded in the Kershaw County Assessor's office:
For those who knew her, our hearts are saddened at the loss of the one of God's faithful servants. Clarice Steele came to Camden as a preacher's wife back in the 1960s and 1970s when her husband was pastor at Hermitage Baptist Church. He was killed in an automobile accident in 1974 that left her a widow taking care of her family and she decided to make Camden her home.

WASHINGTON -- In matters cultural, California has always been America's petri dish. Whatever happened in California usually infiltrated the rest of the country.
The last couple weeks have brought astounding new developments in treatment of babies born with AIDS, raising for the first time the hope that perhaps a treatment has been found that will eradicate the disease in newborns who are born to mothers infected by the HIV virus. The first such case was reported last year, but there was skepticism among many in the scientific community. Earlier this week, a second similar case was reported. The first child, dubbed the "Mississippi baby," is now 3 years old and still virus-free; the second one shows no signs of HIV nine months after ...

As a child I will never forget getting the opportunity to participate in the worship service on Palm Sunday. For most congregations it is customary to have the children of the church come into the sanctuary waving palm branches at some point during the service to help give everyone a visual of the great celebration that Jesus experienced as he made His entry into Jerusalem the week of his crucifixion. As much as I love the celebration that surrounds Palm Sunday and Easter, we as believers do ourselves a disservice if we don't also understand just what it is ...
