Shopping for friends and family members can be fun, but it can also be very stressful. I can't tell you how many holidays have come and gone where I've waited until the last minute to buy Christmas presents for my nearest and dearest. It's not because I don't have the opportunity. Bien au contraire, mon ami, ce n'est pas vrai.

WASHINGTON -- If you peruse the news on any given day, the farm bill/food stamp debate produces two general impressions: Republicans are heartless turkey thieves; Democrats are spendthrift welfare caterers. If only neither were a little bit right.

This is a copy of my letter to the Camden Planning Commission and to Camden City Council. I have had many phone calls from people concerned about this proposed ordinance, as well as calls from my neighbors supporting my having roosters. I have been advised that I am grandfathered, but more restrictive covenants, and zoning ordinances are not the answer for Camden. Any noise nuisance noise cases should be handled on an individual basis, ...

"We are Camden, a place surrounded by history. Long a home of Native Americans, we were founded not long after Carolina was separated into North and South. Here, King Haigler, the Catawba chief, worked for peace among natives and colonists along the banks of the Wateree. Here, Patriots suffered one of the worst defeats in the Revolutionary War. Yet, from this place the tide of war would turn and ultimately lead to victory for ...

Sixth grade students at Camden Middle School (CMS) recently celebrated Mummy Day, a culmination of a unit of study on Ancient Egypt. During the school day, students traveled to four stations where they participated in cross curriculum activities. Students created life-size sarcophagi, found the surface area of pyramids that they then constructed, participated in a virtual pharaoh's mummification process, and then mummified chicken legs.

One of the many problems in politics today is that many elected officials begin to believe they are smarter than the electorate and feel they should be able to make decisions that contravene public attitudes. They justify this, of course, in a myriad of ways. The recent resignation of a Colorado state senator is the ultimate in arrogance when it comes to ignoring the voters and trying to circumvent ...

It started with a recommendation to change the name of the Camden Parks and Streets Commission to the Camden Parks and Trees Commission. That didn't appear to be much of a problem during Camden City Council's work session Thursday afternoon. The only request came from Councilman Willard Polk who wanted to make sure a description of the commission's duties included specific verbiage about city parks.

Nothing succeeds like success, but don't sell failure short. That's the sunny-side-up view of life that appears to be busting out all over the big-thinking world of the business and economics press these days. Bookstores, for example, offer new fail-friendly titles that all but invite you to fail. There's "Failing Forward: Turning Mistakes into Stepping Stones for Success" by John C. Maxwell, "Fail Better," by Herter Studio, and "Fail Up: 20 Lessons ...

Can the federal government's spending spree last forever? Of course not. Even when economic growth is strong (hardly the case now, of course), it's foolish to keep spending more than we take in. Congress is going to have to make some serious cuts. Otherwise, we'll face a day of serious financial reckoning -- and sooner than we think.

Ah, summer is finally here. Many people like to think of the summer months as a carefree and happy time when "kids can just be kids" -- a time when they imagine children escaping from the strict regimen of long school days and embracing the freedom of running around barefoot and exploring their neighborhoods. But if you ask me, all of that just sounds like an excerpt from "Tom Sawyer." In ...
