It happens everyday

According to a study done by The Violence Policy center in 2012, South Carolina was ranked number two in the states with the highest rate of women murdered by men. The report utilized data from homicides involving one female murder victim and one male offender. 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. We only make this transition late in the election cycle so as to give everyone who is genuinely interested plenty of time and opportunity to voice their opinions via column submissions and/or letters to the editor. There are several reasons we ...

Storm signals

It appears as though Kershaw County, indeed, South Carolina, got fairly lucky with Hurricane Matthew.

Wind, rain and blues

It doesn't seem that long ago since the massive juggernaut called Hugo swept through South Carolina – including Camden and Kershaw County – leaving a path of destruction still marveled at nearly thirty years later. As of press time, it appears that Hurricane Matthew was going to have less of an impact on South Carolina and Kershaw County than it potentially could have.

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.

Notes from around the county

Today readers will probably notice a story about a new program started at Lugoff-Elgin High School. Basically, it involves upperclassmen taking on the responsibility of being mentors to incoming freshmen. How it works is that upperclassmen – mostly seniors – are assigned a group of 10-12 freshman who they will help navigate for them the new and uncharted waters of high school. The mentors will actually meet with their freshman charges regularly as well as be available for one-on-one help virtually anytime. The idea is to provide another avenue of inclusiveness for the freshmen, build connections to the school and to other ...
