Editorial: When it ‘pollens’

There's a cartoon making its way across the internet showing a family staring out their living room window -- mother, father and pre-teen son. The boy's face is lit up, knowing, perhaps, he might not have to go to school that day. Has it snowed? No, it's "pollened," he declares, as his parents look on in horror at the mounds of yellow stuff in their yard and on their car. They look as if they haven't slept in ages.

Editorial: Beechwood plan

We cautiously welcome the prospect of a Still Hopes Episcopal Retirement Community being developed at Beechwood on Knights Hill Road. We welcome the news because we have been a proponent of using the property for this type of purpose for some time. We welcome it cautiously, however, because it is just a possibility. Nothing is set in stone, and Camden residents have been waiting for nearly a decade to see what would become of Beechwood.

Editorial: Old Hazelwood building

Tonight, Camden City Council considers second and final reading of two ordinances which, if approved, would considerably change the skyline along DeKalb Street just east of Broad Street.

Editorial: Road dollars

Recently, the S.C. Senate voted to spend $400 million on roads. Sounds great, right? We all know South Carolina's roads need work. A lot of work. We all have driven on roads which have at the very least embarrassed us as local residents, if not caused damage to our vehicles due to their sorry state of disrepair.

Editorial: No-bill

A grand jury's decision to no-bill (not indict) Jimmy Joe Methe came as a bit of a surprise to a great many people in Kershaw County. It certainly stirred a great deal of controversy. Our breaking news alert posted to Facebook on Thursday reached more than 15,000 people, sharing it nearly 120 times and engaging in a fierce debate in the post's comments section. It is easily the most engaged item we have ever posted.

Editorial: Sheheen and Kelly

As recounted on today's front page, Kershaw County Council held a special meeting ahead of its regular meeting Tuesday to honor former Chairman Steve S. Kelly Jr. for his more than 32 years of service as a councilman and chairman. Council did the same Jan. 12 for former Chairman Austin Sheheen Jr. for his 23 years on council.

Editorial: Break-ins

Last week's headlines regarding the arrest of four young men for a string of automobile break-ins in Camden, east Camden and Lugoff offer what we feel are valuable lessons.

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. We are not surprised because, in typically Tony Scully fashion, his decision not to run again is an example of his humility.

Editorial: Equine Park

It's good to hear the S.C. Equine Park's (SCEP) revenue is up 20 percent during the last year, according to information SCEP Vice Chairman John Cushman provided Camden City Council during its meeting Feb. 23.

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.
