Thank you, Dr. Joseph

My husband and I would like to thank Dr. Tommy Joseph for his many years of selfless service to the children of Kershaw County. We both saw Dr. Joseph as children and then took our own two sons to him for the past 14 years. He was a gift to our family and the community. He calmed our many "new parent" fears and reassured us while providing the best medical treatment available. He is one of a kind and we will miss seeing him at the doctor's office. Congratulations on your well-deserved retirement!

LFD to the rescue

On Nov. 29th I was on my way home for lunch and saw the Lugoff Fire Department in front of my neighbor's house. After parking in the road and walking over to where my neighbor was standing I found out that, fortunately, the house was not on fire but a scene was taking place that looked like it should have been on television.

Dual fire service fees

While checking my county tax assessment, I noticed that I was charged for county fire service when I have been paying the city since 1985. When trying to contact someone as to why, the first time I was put on hold for 20 minutes and had to call back. Someone finally got the needed info on the second call and when I finally got a call back all they could tell me was that I was in the county. I know where I live as I have been there since 1985, but no one could or would give me an ...

Community Medical Clinic

Picture yourself in the aftermath of losing your job. You are striving to make ends meet with a lower paying position that offers no insurance benefits. It could be any one of us at any time.

We have a right to know

A lot has happened since one July afternoon in 2011 when I learned that my fellow residents of Camden had been deprived of the possibility to comment and voice their opinions on the city Facebook page.

My Thanksgiving story

I am a 66-year-old senior lady who lives on Social Security and a small check from my past husband. I am thankful all the time, not just Thanksgiving. I try my best to help someone or touch someone if it is only a smile. I've always rather give than receive, but this story really touched heart and it happened to me.

Dr. Tommy Joseph

I am certain that many people in the city of Camden and in Kershaw County are saddened to learn that Dr. Tommy Joseph is retiring. He has practiced pediatrics in Camden for over 35 years. I have had the privilege of knowing Tommy my entire life; he is my brother.

Camden's YMCA project

I have listened to the vehement objections to the proposed YMCA project that may be built on the former Mather Academy site. The anger that I sense from the opponents to this project is fierce and contentious. They have every right to express their objections vocally and in writing.

Historic Camden

A response was made to my recent proposal to City Council about needs Historic Camden has in developing our legitimate existing tourism site for the City of Camden. Needs that easily qualify for state- mandated requirements for hospitality tax usage. The response was, "When I heard one idea of funneling h-tax to Historic Camden I couldn't help but think, 'Here we go again … let's just keep focusing on what we've always done."

Sports complex plan raises concerns on many fronts

As Chair of the local Let's Move Cities & Towns, the White House initiative targeting our national epidemic of childhood obesity, I have tried to educate myself about how to best serve the well being of the next generation. To this end, Let's Move, partnering with KershawHealth and Eat Smart Move More, with Councilwoman Alfred Mae Drakeford as our presiding muse, recently held the first Mini Olympics of Kershaw County at Camden's Doby Complex; we plan a student garden for the spring, and other programs not yet announced.

City’s petition stance not final chapter

I appreciate this opportunity to inform the thousands of Camdenites who are interested in the progress with the referendum, what occurred at the Council meeting Tuesday morning. As expected, the plan for the Camden Sports Complex was the grandiose reveal on the agenda. But another great surprise came in a revelation from Mr. Cushman (city attorney) advising Mayor Graham and Council Members that the initiative petition calling for a referendum had not been presented according to State Code. Well, I should say his interpretation of State Code.

Why we need a Y

To those of you who don't know me, I am an Internal Medicine physician who has practiced at the hospital here in Camden for the past four years. I am the mother of three young children, and I live here in downtown Camden. I have followed the debate about the YMCA closely, and for many reasons, I support this project because I care about my patients, my family, and our community.
