The word "connection" is described in the dictionary as a set of people associated with each other….a common link, interest, or passion -- a coming together of sorts. "Help" is described as giving assistance, support, to rescue or save. "Goodness" is described as the state of being good with character, morality, and righteousness. If one were to search for the definition of "The Folks of Kershaw County," they would surely find those three words. ...
My personal thanks, and those from our organizing committee, go to all who contributed to the success of an early Veterans Day Observance held Friday, November 9.
I was surprised, and frankly insulted, to learn in the November 2 C-I that the Camden city manager believes that I am a tourist in Camden.
I am writing on behalf of the newly formed Kershaw County Tea Party that meets in Cassatt. Our membership wants to commend and applaud the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce and County Council Chairman Gene Wise for opposing the tax increase requested by the Kershaw County School Board.
I just want to say "thank you." I went to get gas at Circle K in Lugoff Sunday, October 28. I used my debit card. I did not know I had lost it until Monday. My heart fell to my feet. I knew the only place I had been was Circle K. I went back Monday with a very aching heart, hoping that someone had found it. To my ...
Governor Haley knew over two weeks ago that someone still unknown had hacked into the computers at the South Carolina Department of Revenue and that the personal information of approximately 3.6 million taxpayers had been compromised. She finally decided to tell those taxpayers last Friday afternoon, the time when all bad news is dumped.
Early this AM (Friday), I picked up a copy of your paper and I was absolutely delighted that you wrote such a fine article detailing my proposal to bringing my collections back to Camden in the form of a local museum. It was an outstanding article. If we are successful in opening this downtown museum, it will be largely due to the article you wrote! I appreciated this more than you will ever know.
I feel compelled to bring to your reader's attention a slight correction regarding the photograph showing the dedication of the Patriot's Landing. The loyalist fort captured by troops commanded by Thomas Sumter was called Cary's Fort. It was located on the west side of the river fronting the old ferry. That ferry was located about one mile south of current highway bridge. The area designated as Patriot's Landing did not exist as a landing until ...
On Friday, October 12, I was in Kershaw County. My Dad had ridden with me. He suffered a fairly serious stroke shortly after 2 p.m. He is now at MUSC in Charleston recovering.
When the rest of the country is making their decision on who will be President Tuesday, Nov. 6, our community will make a choice on who will represent our community in Columbia and at the State House.
History, horses and hospitality! This has been our quasi-brand in the past. Our new brand is "Grab Life." We currently have a division in the city which I do not understand and also regret.
On Nov. 6, voters are faced with a "yes" or "no" question worded as follows:
We have been hearing about the City of Camden and the Y. First of all, I would like to point out there is no binding agreement that I am aware of between these organizations. Next, let's look at the YMCA history for Camden.
In his campaign ad titled "Focusing on Our Future" in the Oct. 10 edition of the C-I, Mayor Graham takes credit for several items that bear correction. First, his ad states that he is responsible for bringing the Farmers Market to downtown Camden. If my recollection of the particulars is correct, this statement is patently false. The year was 2005 and it was Rep. Laurie Funderburk and Andy Rollins with the Clemson Extension Service who ...
As we approach the vote on the city referendum, I wanted to comment on my support for the YMCA as the third party to run our sports complex.
