Phillips: A Merry Christmas to all

I am a big believer in everyone's right to think and feel however they choose to. It's really what makes us all American and, to make it even broader, it's what makes us all human. If I don't happen to agree with your point of view, I still respect your right to have that point of view.

Camden Archives and Museum celebrates its centennial

One hundred years ago, in 1915, 1314 Broad St. was a construction site. Excavators and bricklayers, carpenters and heating contractors were busy at their task of building Camden's first city library. It had been an arduous journey getting to that point. That journey began in 1914, as best we can reckon, at a lecture to the Kershaw County Teachers Institute. In all of the factors leading up to the acquisition and completion of the Camden Public Library there is one constant: Sarah "Sadie" Kennedy Von Tresckow.

Owens: Year in review

To say that 2014 has had its ups and downs would be an understatement. Honestly, I don't know what words or phrases I would use to describe how my 2014 played out. It wasn't the worst year ever, but it definitely wasn't the greatest.

The loss of parents and their wisdom

There are few who cannot say truthfully that they miss their parents after death has laid claim to those loved ones. The parents who taught us, scolded us and, at times, annoyed us are never forgotten, never put away on a shelf to be remembered no more.

Gunn: Partnership drives investment in health

You may have read about the letter of intent to be agreed upon between KershawHealth and MUSC Health/Capella Healthcare.

Phillips: Watch out for the Grinch

The holiday season is traditionally a time for joy and celebration. It's a time when we may be able to see family members and friends who we seldom get to see because of distance or available time. For many of us, it's the time we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. For others, there are options in the form of Hanukkah, Kwanzaa or whatever holiday celebration you may choose.

Joseph: ‘The Christmas Truce’

Earlier this week, as I sat down at my desk stacked high with a rather large "catch-up pile," flipped on my computer and opened up my browser, I was greeted by a plethora of Christmas cheer. You know, the bright pop-up holiday ad-type cheer and the Top 10 gift list-type cheer among others. In my view as well were numerous articles on a variety of topics including "How to Raise the Bar for Your Holiday Decorations," "Picking That Perfect Tree," "Best Free Apps for Christmas Shopping," "Say Cheese: Time for the Dreaded Family Portrait" and the final two but no ...
