There are those who claim illegal drug activity is a "victimless crime" that hurts no one other than perhaps the drug user. Law enforcement and medical authorities disagree. Drug addiction and the drug trade are often linked to other crimes that do affect victims.

Whenever the subject of guns is brought up, it engenders strong opinion on both sides -- from those who believe in absolute Second Amendment rights, and from those who believe that nobody should be allowed to own a gun in any circumstances. Like most people, we fall somewhere in the middle, solidly on the side of Americans to own firearms but a bit dubious about why it makes sense for people to own Uzis and other automatic weapons that are made with the express purpose of killing people.

I was truly proud to be able to report during the past week an historical event right here in Camden. It was the naming of the I-20 bridge that crosses the Wateree River for Kershaw County's three Medal of Honor recipients. The Medal of Honor is the greatest and most prestigious award bestowed on those serving in the United States military and to receive it means you've done something exceptionally special, often at the cost of your life.

Our family has spent many a pleasant summer day with several families from the Dillon area and the experience is always enjoyable and the manner in which they address their friends, neighbors and kinfolk is like taking a step back in the "Old South." Everyone seems to have a prefix or you are a tourist just stopping by.

Lugoff-Elgin High School Principal Worth Thomasson braces himself for a splash of icy cold water as L-EHS football players and cheerleaders look on. Thomasson agreed to be "dunked" if L-EHS students raised $5000 by Thursday morning to donate to the United Way of Kershaw County. Students ended up raising $5300. "We wanted something that would get the kids involved in with a team aspect ... It kind of goes along with the United Way spirit, you can give a dollar, and that dollar goes a long way," Thomasson said. See more pictures in our Localife section.
