Editorial: Tony Scully

In his monthly column, over on the top of the facing page (A3), Tony Scully is announcing he will not run for a second term as Camden's mayor. Simply stated, we are extremely sorry to learn of his decision, but we are not totally surprised, either.

Editorial: To vote or not to vote?

We are, usually, tremendous advocates of exercising one's right to vote. And we, usually, express such advocacy with the old saying, "If you don't vote, you can't complain," meaning don't grumble about who gets elected if you didn't cast your vote for an opponent.

Editorial: Justified?

Many people in and around Camden know Jimmy Methe and his family. They know them for their love of animal life, big and small, often taking in critters to nurse them back to health or passing them on to those who know best how to do so. Methe is known for helping out when there's a clash between Kershaw County's wildlife and the humans who live in its midst.

Editorial: Truck route work

We're glad to know construction to remake certain roads in and around Camden into an enforceable truck route will get underway Monday. However, we can't help thinking how frustrating it will be to have the affected portion of Springdale Drive and Boykin Road between Knights Hill Road and North Broad Street tied up with construction for the next 15 months.

Editorial: Blame for closing schools may be misplaced

After reading today's coverage of this week's Kershaw County Board of Trustees meeting, one could easily get the sense of an "us versus them" mentality between North Central area parents and trustees, not to mention among some trustees themselves.

Editorial: Good news

This may sounds odd in this day and age of 24/7 news cycles dependent on screaming headlines about the worst mankind has to offer, but we prefer to report good news whenever we can.

Editorial: ‘A great year’

Listening to Kershaw County Economic Development Director Peggy McLean at Tuesday's Kershaw County Council meeting, as recounted in one of today's front page stories, confirmed our happy suspicions: 2015 was a great year, as McLean put it, for Kershaw County from an economic development standpoint.

Editorial: Carolina sports

There is no better time to be a Carolina sports fan than now. The Carolina Panthers are on their way to the Super Bowl and, depending on what you read, a 4- to 10-point favorite to win it all. (Here in our offices, we're expecting a Panthers blowout over the Denver Broncos.)
