Life experience and judging

WASHINGTON -- How did the Supreme Court manage to agree unanimously that police must obtain a warrant before searching cellphones, yet split on whether employers must offer contraception as part of their health care plans?

Summer is a comin’ in

My point of view with this monthly column is to identify and celebrate positive energies in the community, the building blocks of a vibrant city and county. In that context, the June 24 runoff victory of retired Gen. Julian Burns as the Republican candidate for chairman of the Kershaw County Council offers a worthy challenge to his Democratic opponent, former County Councilman Bobby Gary. In the meantime, we remain grateful to present and continuing Chairman Gene Wise.

The presidency

It's not easy being president these days. If you doubt that, look no further than a recent poll by Quinnipiac University, a respected non-partisan entity that doesn't have an ax to grind with either major political party. The new poll shows that President Obama is now regarded as the worst president since World War II, surpassing George W. Bush, who was previously considered the worst. It's no coincidence that the two chief executives at the bottom of the standings are the last two to serve in the Oval Office.

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 ...
