Teal: ‘Celebrating’ Reconstruction

The 150th anniversary year of the Civil War with various reenactments and activities came to an end in the spring of 2015.

Parker: Cry havoc, followed by milk & cookies

'Wood' you believe we get so much from trees?

The holidays are a good time to reflect on all of the blessings we receive and have as a nation and community. One of the many things I'm continually thankful for is trees.

Op-ed: Eminent domain and the new threat to property rights

On Tuesday, October 20, a Senate Judiciary subcommittee met to discuss and take testimony on S.868, a bill that would grant the power of eminent domain to a company constructing any kind of pipeline. Eminent domain, remember, is a power held by governments – not private companies – to expropriate private property for public use. The bill now in the General Assembly, however, would require private pipeline companies to go through a permitting process with both the Public Service Commission (PSC) and the Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC) before the power of eminent domain could be exercised.

Blue House became a part of the legend and lore of Camden not because of who lived there, but because of who died there. It was the place where Baron Johann DeKalb took his last breath before succumbing to the 11 wounds he received at the Battle of Camden on August 16, 1781. Taken as a prisoner of war at the battle, he was brought there by his British captors who held his demeanor in battle in esteem.
