Community and its people will be warm memory for pastor

After serving 12 years in the Camden Seventh-day Adventist Church, on Boykin Road, I bid fair Camden farewell.

Polk, Gilland quick to help with tending historic site

It has been my distinct pleasure and honor to serve for two years as chairman of the Camden Garden Club's project to restore and preserve the Joseph Kershaw Gravesite. Members of this hard-working committee have planted, mulched, pruned, weeded, monitored, and dedicated themselves to restoring this historically significant plot of land to the glorious state it deserves, as the final resting place of the founder of Camden, and one of the state's first patriots.

Gambling story one-sided, 'uninspired'

When I read the headline in last Wednesday's paper, "Local skepticism, opposition greet gambling bill" I eagerly read Trevor Baratko's article to find out what the greater community was thinking.

City needs to put brakes on spending

Wake up, citizens of Camden! Do you have any clue what Mayor Jeffrey Graham and city council are doing? Probably not, we would all be at the council meetings protesting.

Absence of funeral escort complicates stressful time

I attended a funeral this week and after the coffin was closed for the last time and the family was preparing to enter, the funeral director had to announce to those in attendance to be careful to obey all traffic laws because there would be no police escort as there had been in the past.

Hold DUI traffic unit to self-sustainability

A common political tactic to increase spending is to use DUI fatalities and the victims' families to take more money from taxpayers.

Are judges above the law?

OK, the sheriff told me he was a Constitutionalist but yet he allows his deputies to enforce unconstitutional laws. But, hey, maybe he doesn't understand the whole concept of due process. But wait a minute. Isn't it his duty to understand what he has sworn an oath to uphold?

Federal and state taxes and budgeting

Our tax code should be simplified. "Experts" have been saying taxes must be reduced to equal revenue, and then some, to deal with our trillion dollar debt. They are also saying we must reduce all expenditure by $40 billion, $6 billion, etc., and the way to accomplish this is to cut all expenditures as compared to previous expenses (both state and federal) by eliminating redundancies, duplications, and overlap. This is "water over the dam" and only prolongs the problem and increases time and effort expended, both direct and indirect.

Consumers pay high price for credit

Credit card companies have long found their bread and butter in penalty fees and high interest rates paid by consumers.

Student commended for taking a stand

I applaud Christina Stokes, Camden High School columnist, for her article stating that purity is a beautiful quality. Hopefully her speaking out will be the catalyst for many others to make the choice to remain pure in their lives.

A story of praise and thanks

Our news media is so full of negatives, hopelessness and tragedy. This is a story praising the goodness of God through others. On Jan. 12 about 7:30 p.m., my husband came in the den and announced that he wasn't feeling real good. In questioning him all he could tell me was a bad case of indigestion -- no nausea, no pain or no sweating. We live at Lake Wateree next door to Vince (a Methodist minister) and Nancy (a nurse) Halter. I called Nancy, and Charles described his symptoms. Calmly she told him that it could just be ...

Quick response to fire saves property, lives

On Monday, Feb. 14, 2011, we experienced what could have turned into a catastrophic event if it had not been for a quick response from our local Blaney Fire Department, Doby's Mill, Lugoff, Columbia, and Pine Grove fire departments and the S.C. Forestry Commission. The wind was a major factor that day in trying to contain the fire and keep it from spreading.

Enough is enough

The 26th amendment (granting the right to vote for 18-year-olds) took only three months and eight days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971 … before computers, before e-mail, before cell phones, etc.

Reader takes issue with sheriff’s letter

Having waded through Sheriff Jim Matthews recent letter as published regarding his endorsement of a "Proposed Firearms Ordinance," I note that the main point (as quoted) "It prohibits the discharge of a firearm within 300 yards;" that's 900 feet!

Letter writer: South Carolina’s African-Americans should run for office

Black Americans in the state of Mississippi understand their time is at hand for their voting solidarity and economic self-reliance. Black Americans in South Carolina should also know their time is also at hand for them to learn and run for the legacy of our Black brothers and sisters in Mississippi.
