Camden Wal-Mart opens ‘The Spark’ as information ‘hub’ for Kershaw County events

In May, Wal-Mart held a ribbon cutting to introduce "The Spark" to our community. "The Spark" will serve as a hub for all information around events in the Camden/Kershaw County community. This resource will improve communication between those organizations that are making our community so great and those who would like to know more about what is going on in their community. They felt it would be the perfect vehicle to conveniently expose more than 50,000 visitors weekly, to what the community has to offer. One example of how "The Spark" would work, is if a person is ...

Pet Talk for Aug. 5, 2011

Most summer days are filled with outdoor activities and times spent on vacation. It's necessary to understand the types of diseases that may affect your pets when they travel. So, if you're the outdoor type and you like to take your pet with you, your pet may be bringing home more than memories as you venture through fields and streams.

Put YMCA proposal to a vote

In response to all the controversy of a YMCA coming to Camden, I have read articles for and against. We are going to be spending a lot of money on committees and studies by city council and county council about the YMCA. This looks to me like we are getting the cart before the horse. With so many people opposed to or in support of the YMCA, why not – before spending all this money -- place the issue on the ballot and let the people decide. This would save a lot of money.

Lawsuit No. 3

Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews has been sued for the third time since taking office only a few months ago. While we aren't legal experts, we do see a few interesting developments here, the first one being that Matthews has been no shrinking violet when it comes to making statements about the way the department was run prior to his election. Of course that's not uncommon in South Carolina law enforcement circles; after all, sheriffs are elected and not appointed, and politics is part of the process. Some say Matthews continued his criticism of former Sheriff Steve McCaskill ...

Throw the bums out

Back when I was in journalism school -- in the days when Gutenberg was still trying to figure out movable type and four guys named Matthew, Mark, Luke and John were just starting to jot down their thoughts -- we were always taught to be subtle when writing opinion pieces.

Focusing on finding the best healthcare outcomes

Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.

Beautiful in a different way

She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.

The road diet boon-doggle mistake

The road diet -- what a mistake. Even the mayor admits it could be a mistake. When the mayor was running for office he led me to believe that he was against the Broad Street diet. Two years later, he has flipped his opinion about the diet project. The mayor's vote, along with two of the previous council members, is what placed this mistake in motion. The urgency for the vote was to apply for a grant. A grant is federal tax dollars and not free money as some believe. This type of attitude is one of the reasons our ...
