Rampell: N.Y.’s bizarre uproar over topless women

NEW YORK -- The city that never sleeps has good reason to remain sleepless these days. A new terror imperils New York, threatening to destroy all it -- nay, America -- holds dear.

Rampell: The 2016 field is full of deadbeats

There's a certain demographic in this country -- it's unseemly to mention the specific population by name -- which has no sense of personal responsibility.

Phillips: The good, the bad and the ugly

Here at the Chronicle-Independent we are charged with the task of reporting the news. Way to state the obvious, right? But, simply put, it's what we do.

Burns: Control our destiny; invest in our future

Open for Business! Recently Kershaw County had wonderful news in Economic Development with expansions at Suominen and Haier. Our leaders on the Kershaw County Council, in Elgin, Camden, Bethune, and the School Board, as well as in the State Government, won't stop there; we will strive to bring more. We are "the Great Place", and we must work to keep it so through sustainable growth. There is more work to do.

Jenkins: Camping with kids

This summer was a busy one. Among other trips, we made our annual pilgrimage to Table Rock State Park to camp and commune. We've camped lots over the years, beginning when the kids were a few months old. However, this year's trip was the first where I felt fully organized. I thought I'd offer a few tips we've learned from experience. Primitive, backcountry campers can stop reading here. You'll either be disgusted or bored. While we camp in a tent, we don't compromise many other comforts. Just getting in the woods is a great ...

Cahn: School board almost gets exec sessions right

Back in June, I told you about a S.C. Supreme Court ruling in a North Augusta case concerning public bodies entering executive sessions. As I've mentioned time and time again in this space, we still have a problem with the way certain public bodies here in Kershaw County go into executive session.

Rampell: ‘Advice’ for candidates plagued by economic delusion

WASHINGTON -- Forget Jeb Bush's bold promise of 4 percent economic growth, which Chris Christie subsequently matched. Never mind Scott Walker's attempt to one-up them both, with a pledge of (wait for it) 4.5 percent growth. And ignore Mike Huckabee's slightly higher ambition, recently offered in Iowa, of a whopping 6 percent growth.

Richardson: South Carolina during the Revolutionary War

Catawba Chief King Hagler is a beloved symbol of Camden. His image made in iron has crowned the town's successive clock towers since 1824. Today, he stands atop the third clock tower in the center of downtown. He also graces the cupola on city hall and the numerous historical markers at historic sites around town. His image has pointed the direction the wind blows in Camden for 191 years.
