Letter: Please, park somewhere besides Cedars Cemetery

I would like to know that this is not a race issue. I have lived in Camden my entire life and one thing that works my nerves is seeing people go and park their trucks and cars in Cedars Cemetery. I truly find that rude. They run over the graves and tombstones.

After this latest, sad, school shooting in Florida, the cries from the gun-grabbers has grown ever louder. And, they have even enrolled the children to speak on the issues of gun control and taking assault rifles off the market.

Letter: Due process, civil rights absent in family court

Having been dealing with Kershaw County Family Court for more than two years now, I find it amazing how judges and lawyers who practice family law have immunity from lawsuits or wrong doing. We all know that family courts are considered a he said/she said court. And that a person's due process or civil rights do not count in family court. But we never ask, "What about the children's rights?" Are our children's rights protected and are their best interests really being considered?

A 'Solicious' celebration

Saturday marked a double celebration of African-American culture in Camden with the opening of the African American Cultural Center and the inaugural edition of the "Soulicious" festival on the grounds of the Price House. Inside the cultural center, hundreds of people got to see pictures, documents and baseball cards relating to Camden native Larry Doby, the second African-American to enter major league baseball by becoming the first black member of an American League team. Many of those same people then spent time outside enjoying food cooked by the Camden-Kershaw County chapter of the NAACP, face painting, games, music and more.
