Same hymnal, different song

The proposed Camden Sports Complex has become a matter of considerable debate within the Camden community. Sides have been taken, strategies employed, and divisive positions adopted that have resulted in a contentious atmosphere in our community. The Camden Referendum Recreation Coalition (CRRC) and the Camden For the Y organization are agreeing to disagree on some issues. However, we agree on many more, as we recognize we share a common cause.

Girl Scout cookies up for sale

NOTE: National media has been covering the story about a new Girl Scout cookie called Savannah Smiles. That is NOT being offered by either council in South Carolina. There are two licensed Girl Scout cookie bakeries in the United States and South Carolina councils both use ABC Bakers -- not the one that introduced the new cookie.

Noted and passed

• We're glad to see that Alzheimer's Disease is finally getting the attention it deserves as far as efforts to combat it. Health experts met recently in Washington to make plans for the first national plan to fight the horrid disease. The top goal in the early draft of the National Alzheimer's Project Act is to prevent and effectively treat the malady by 2025. Finally, public funding and attention could rival that given to cancer and heart disease, and that, of course, is a good thing for the millions of families affected.

Growing up, I tried to understand that my parents were making major sacrifices for our country and respected that. With that said, as a kid it always came down to the fact that it took a lot of effort to pick up and make new ...

Legislature questions dredging permit

The port issue heated up this week at the State House. Both the House and Senate have resolutions pending that would suspend the authority of the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) for all decisions it has made since 2007 regarding the navigability, depth, dredging, wastewater and sludge disposal concerning the South Carolina portion of the Savannah River. The legislature argues it gave this authority to the Savannah River Maritime Authority by statute in 2007.
