Education Oversight Committee needs major reality check

Imagine if the teacher of your child or grandchild or some other young person in your life told the class that no matter what grades were made on a given test, 30 percent of the class would fail. I feel very certain in saying that this would be viewed as unfair and arbitrary, and with good reason.

‘Fake news’ at the NYT

My personal, hands-on experience is exactly opposite of Tom Reichert's claim when writing, "Regardless, newspapers are not the ones peddling fake news" (Good journalism is real, Tuesday, Oct. 3, 2017, pg. 2).

Writer thanks SCDOT for cleaning roadside ditches

I would like to thank the SC Dept. of Transportation for cleaning out our ditches. They look really nice and hopefully the water will flow down them instead of clogging up and causing mosquitoes.

Eliminating corruption best way to stop violent tragedies

Tragic incidents such as just happened in Las Vegas will not nor cannot be solved by more gun control laws. It can and will only be solved until eliminating corruption in politics, which is visible in any job profession, within churches, schools, work places, and all types of government. It starts at the lowest level and goes all the way to the top, in cities, in countries and at state and federal levels.

Pat Wylie was a ‘man for all seasons’

With the passing of Pat Wylie this week, Camden has lost a true treasure. Many of us loved him and all of us respected him. He touched the lives of so many of us that his absence will be irreplaceable. To me, he was a mentor and a colleague. But, most of all, he was a dear friend.

More testing is not the answer

A recent national survey done by Gallup and the respected education organization Phi Delta Kappa had some very enlightening things to say about the obsession with standardized testing that has gripped our country for the past 20-25 years.

Writer, too, has a dilemma

I am glad to see that my good friend, Charlie Humphries, is still exercising his freedom of speech by using a member of the mass media that is part of the "most significant danger in 100 years."

Writer wants his money back

I bought $50 worth of lottery tickets for the recent huge, half-billion dollar lottery jackpot. The clerk said: "Good luck; I hope you win."

Writer has a dilemma

I have a dilemma that hopefully some of you may have the solution to. We have a president that we duly elected by giving him our votes, or in some cases withholding them from Hilary Clinton. Either way, he is the one this nation legally chose to lead us. That being the case, you would expect the people to get behind him and support him in any way possible. After all, if he is successful, are we not the beneficiaries? By the same token, if he is not, are we not losers?

Where does racism come from?

Where does racism come from? Some say it's been around forever; and, you're not going to change that. Now, that's a discussion stopper! If we say we are not racist in any way, shape or form, we're only kidding ourselves. Racism is alive and well. It lives on a continuum from minimally racist to extremely racist. If you ask a class of school children, "Where does racism begin?" They'll tell you, "At home, parents, family, the neighborhood, the playground." Out of the mouths of babes! Are we hard-wired to only be concerned about our own ...

Let’s maintain our existing tennis courts

One of the first and best impressions Camden made upon me when I moved back here in the '90s was the number of neighborhood parks and tennis courts that were available to its residents. Now, like your guest columnist, Phil Noble, I must make a "full disclosure": I am a tennis player. Shortly after I came to town, I started playing the game again for the first time since high school, tentatively at first, secretly hitting the ball for hours against the concrete wall at Scott Park, finally working up my courage to play a little doubles. I had fun ...
