Many thanks and kudos to everyone who helped to make this year's Kershaw County Special Olympics such a huge success. It was a wonderful and memorable day! Particular thanks to Col. Eric Boland and everyone at Camden Military Academy for hosting the event and to the countless volunteers who assisted the athletes and helped everything to run so smoothly.
I am a 70-year-old single lady who lives on Social Security. I have been a caregiver since I was 12 years old, but I can no longer work due to health problems. Wow, so much for the golden years and don't let me forget to mention the wonderful Medicare that we have to get whether we want it or not.
It is my opinion all illegal immigrants should be removed from our country. I believe, however, it "ain't" going to happen. Some say, "How can you remove 20 million people?" My answer is, "One at a time," if necessary. But it does become more difficult by the day because more are coming in every night. Let's face it: we are making no real effort to stop it.
Nineteen years ago in March, we purchased a Jack Russell Terrier puppy at a steeplechase in Pinehurst, N.C. The breeder was said to be from Camden, S.C., but I do not remember the name.
As I drive through my neighborhood in north Camden and other areas around the city, I find plastic bags with The State newspaper advertising in them lying on the open road, in driveways and on the side of the roads. These bags with their contents have been there for days now. They are waterlogged, driven over and generally trash.
On March 29, 2016, a glorious blue sky welcomed early morning gatherers to the front lawn of Camden City Hall for a ceremony honoring the 50th anniversary on the ending of the Vietnam War. The Hobkirk Hill Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution had been recognized as a partner in the commemoration of the Vietnam conflict, receiving a certificate from Secretary of the Department of Defense Ash Carter and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff J. L Danford Jr. The chapter also was presented with a Vietnam War Commemorative flag, signifying that the Vietnam veterans take their ...
I am truly saddened by the death of Andrew James, a long time Kershaw County school administrator, school board member, and church and civil pillar in Kershaw County. His passing leaves a void which will not be easily filled.
Duke Brown: civil rights activist, past chairman of the Kershaw County Black Caucus. Some called him a troublemaker; a few even called him a rabble-rouser. But he was a hero to me.
First, let me say there are some good politicians out there, but I'm not sure they overweigh the poor ones. When you speak with me, you know where you stand. I don't sugarcoat and I'm not going to tell an untruth. However, the folks from the Kershaw County school board seem to forget there is more to Kershaw County than Camden and Lugoff. They need to learn more about the rest of the county they represent.
It was Saturday. The birds were singing, the sun was shining bright and the sky was clear blue. It was the perfect day for a drive. So, I grabbed the keys and my sunglasses and we headed out the door. I strapped him in the seat belt and we were off. We both loved the fresh air, so of course the windows were down. He stuck his head out the window and his tongue would flap around in the wind. This was always my favorite part of our ride together; something that would make me smile. Gopher loved to swim ...
Should the (Kershaw County School District facility upgrades) referendum be successful:
Surprise, surprise, the school board is going to be back in November asking us to approve a $138 million debt to finance the building of new schools and modifications of existing ones. That's correct: $138 million, not $130, which we voted down the first time.
The United States is the lifeboat for illegal immigrants. Refugees cost taxpayers millions of dollars. They have paid no taxes. Social services provide housing, cash, medicine and jobs for them.
Lon Outen, local author/historian, recently presented to the Kershaw County Historical Society a program entitled "The Wateree Back Before the Dams." He shared some of his research on his third book now in progress. Some excerpts from his talk:
Strong family values will surely reduce America's prison rate. We must remedy this problem beginning with providing better education, jobs and preventitive programs.
How might a Trump presidency play out on a day-to-day, week-to-week, year-to-year basis? Some may choose to have him elected just to continue to hear ...
All kids deserve a strong start to life.
I would like to thank all the wonderful people of Camden for their outpouring of support for my daughter, Caroline.
As longtime friends and friendly rivals of Randy Stokes, we would like to congratulate Randy on winning his 300th game as the head baseball coach ...
