My freshman to senior years at CMA

High school is tough; boarding school is tough; but a military school is even tougher, especially if you're going in as a freshman and you've never even been in public high school where things are quite different. Honestly, my decision to go to a military school didn't come about overnight, and I -- not my parents -- made this choice. It was the result of my brother attending Camden Military Academy the year before I arrived.

Column: Gratitude in 2018

Hello 2018! A new year is upon us, and I am so excited about all the great things in store for our beautiful city!

Statistically, most people who come up with New Year's resolutions don't follow through on them long term ...

Letter: A call for civility, moving forward

No one knows what the future holds. But we all know who holds the future. We trust in that higher power. And we have our wits about us to do what needs doing.

We have an uncertain future and we don't even know yet if we have been right in hindsight.

Letter: Unhappy with tax increase, county leadership

This week many of us will be paying our property taxes. My husband and I, like many other Kershaw County residents are not happy about the sizeable increase in tax bills over the last four years under the leadership of County Council Chairman Julian Burns. Chairman Burns ran as a conservative and still believes he is a conservative. We call him a trans-conservative; meaning his political philosophy is not aligned with his physical reality or his policies. Of course, our taxes didn't increase 22 percent over the last four years simply through his leadership. He needed the support of ...

Art and Geometry

Recently Pam Horton's Honors Geometry classes had two special guests: Mrs. Donna Royson and Ms.Cindy Bundrick. These ladies helped students make a real-life connection to transformations.
