Let's do this

Today is Veterans Day, an extremely important day of remembrance. We honor those who have served, those who have sacrificed, those who have given of themselves for the freedoms we enjoy. That we recognize and give thanks to them today is important and fitting. That we should honor them every day is a given.

It happens everyday

According to them now, South Carolina is ranked number five, which in my mind is just as bad as being ranked number two.

Political submissions

By now many readers should be aware of the C-I's policy regarding political submissions during the election cycle. Basically, our policy is to handle all letters to the editor and/or op-ed pieces that are submitted on behalf/opposition of candidates or in support/opposition of major issues not as free editorial articles but as paid advertising.

Monsters here

On today's front page readers will see a variety of items. One is a lighthearted feature by Katrina Moses about the Pokémon Go game, which is sweeping the nation in popularity. The word Pokémon seems to be a mash-up in Japanese and English, but it basically means "pocket monster." The object of the game, apparently, is to hunt and capture these pocket monsters, which apparently can be anywhere. In fact, in this interesting and creative melding of the virtual and real worlds, we are seeing players in all kinds of different places – cemeteries, libraries, monuments, public buildings ...

Revitalizing Camden

This afternoon and this evening Camden City Council will be discussing bringing another project dream to reality: a tennis complex to be located on property at the corner of Campbell and York Streets, the current site of the tennis courts used by Camden High School. The idea is to have a regional complex that can attract tournaments and events to Camden, bringing in visitors and ultimately more tourism dollars.
