How we still fight the Civil War

Fort Sumter surrendered to the rebels again last week with what one observer called "measured enthusiasm," compared to the Civil War centennial celebration 50 years earlier. For that, South Carolina, a grateful war-weary nation thanks you.

Noted and passed -- April 25, 2011

• Southwest Airlines has been flying out of Greenville-Spartanburg and Charleston airports for several weeks now, with good apparent results. Travelers are booking trips for the unique airline's lower fares and lack of add-on fees. It's too bad that Columbia's airport can't attract a quality nationwide low-cost carrier, for as airline prices continue to soar, Kershaw County travelers will be joining others across the country in seeking the lowest fares.

Broad Street two-lane plan needs additional review

I have just returned from the downtown post office. I spent all of three minutes going from the Tickle Hill and Black River roads intersection to Fair Street downtown. The next 15 minutes were spent from Rutledge Street to the post office parking lot. This was at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday afternoon. The point of this letter is not to complain about the time spent, but if I were a downtown merchant as I was until 2008, I would never want Broad Street changed to a two-lane street. The backed-up traffic will be horrible, and unless you meet ...

Rhame Arena

We're glad to see that the city of Camden is exploring alternatives for aging Rhame Arena. The building is becoming more dilapidated with each passing year, and something needs to be done, whether it's razing it or restoring it. Of course, money is a factor, just as it is in all government decisions these days. We will say that city officials have overworked the bureaucratic jargon in their appraisal of the situation, saying an "adaptive reuse" could be a possible alternative. We are assuming "adaptive reuse" means repairing the building and making it feasible for some type of ...
