Lyricist appreciates audience response

On Sunday, May 22, the Fine Arts Center (FAC) was nearly full to capacity for the special production, "An Afternoon with Dick Goodwin." The Columbia Choral Society (CCS) under the direction of Dr. Lillian Quackenbush sang a classical symphonic piece composed by Goodwin entitled, "Mark Twain Remarks." The audience was held spellbound with the intriguing arrangement and the talented voices accompanied by gifted pianist Allison Hilbish. The FAC's acoustically flawless venue allowed every note and word to be heard, resulting in a breath-takingly beautiful experience.

Letter: Nature causes transgenders...

One of my hobbies is studying people and their birthdays. I am not a pro, not have I ever gone to school and taken a class on the subject of the behavior of people, but my opinion is Mother Nature does have flaws when it comes to the brain and sex of babies. I feel that some babies are born as male that should have been born females and some babies born females should have been males.

Has SCDOT forgotten U.S. 521 North?

First, let me say coming into Camden on U.S. 1, S.C. 34 and U.S. 521 from Sumter are really well kept. Leaving the Camden city limits on U.S. 521/601 North (however), one can get air under their seat crossing Sanders Creek. I also see after a heavy rain, the standing water across from Peck Woods Road is going to hurt somone and cause a major accident. And I haven't mentioned the bone jarring bumps every 15 yards all the way to Westville.

Reader: Trump’s plans ‘knee jerk’ at best

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 the latest Trump attack as if the USA were on autopilot and could somehow always self-correct. Are we so starved for adequate chatter around the ol' water cooler?
