Bears and wolves find a voice in the wilderness

WASHINGTON -- If politicians preying upon your attentions this season fail to inspire, you might seek common cause with the beasts -- the four-legged variety rather than those running for office.

The thuggery of sports

The wild world of sports seems these days to be filled with thugs and hooligans. I really don’t mean to paint such a large group of people with such a wide brush, so I’ll say there are plenty of athletes, the majority in fact, who are honest, decent citizens who abide by the accepted rules of humanity in all or most of what they do. But, like in most groups, it’s the bad apples who get the most attention.

Grilling steaks, frying turkeys

It’s said that Bear Bryant, the legendary football coach at Alabama, once remarked, “Every man thinks he knows how to do two things perfectly: grill a steak and coach a football team.”

Aging leaves and Autumn color

Aging leaves and Autumn color

Trees are fascinating biological wonders. From ancient bristle cone pines and towering redwoods out west to our widely diverse Southern forests, the life cycle of a tree provides us with year-round interest. One of the most intriguing and beautiful results of a tree’s life cycle is autumn color.

Dreams thankfully deferred

Growing up, I had a hand full of career goals. My parents signed me up for basketball in 3rd grade, which put the idea of playing for the WNBA in my head.

Power, divided

We’ve always believed the United States government works best when power is divided -- that is, with a president from one party and a Congress controlled by the opposite party. As of now, of course, we have a Democratic president and a split Congress, with the House of Representatives controlled by Republicans and the Senate dominated by Democrats. There are multiple forecasting models out there for the upcoming election, with most of them giving the GOP a better-than-even chance of gaining a majority in the Senate while retaining control of the House.

Football brawl

What should have been a celebration of a sturdy football win by Camden High School (CHS) turned into an ugly incident Friday night at Zemp Stadium when a brawl occurred as players went through the handshake line following the game. The incident led to a significant amount of publicity across the state, causing a black eye to CHS and the city itself. While various investigations of the fight continue, including scrutiny by the Camden Police Department for possible criminal conduct, it appears the brawl was triggered by Dreher players.

Noted and passed - Oct. 20, 2014

• Thanks to I-20, two U.S. highways and several state highways, we have a lot of commercial vehicles passing through Kershaw County on a daily basis. While most of those vehicles are likely carrying goods for sale here and elsewhere across the country, there’s also a good chance hazardous materials are being trucked through as well. So, it’s a good thing Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) and the Kershaw County Fire Service have joined forces to create a Special Operations Team (SOT) to deal with any “HazMat” accidents that may occur. According to LF-R Battalion Chief Chris Spitzer, the team ...

Letters

L-EHS student concerned about animal shelter

I am writing this letter about the concerns of the Walter M. Crowe Animal Shelter. Our animal shelter has its pros and cons. The benefits of an animal shelter is it provides protection for those individuals that cannot afford the proper care for their animal. Think about it: what would our city look like if we did not have an animal shelter? There would be dogs and cats running around freely. Every day I ride down Hwy. 1, I see a helpless dog on the side of the rode with its ribs sticking out from lack of nutrients.

Camden residents support Graham for city council

I want to voice my support for Jeffrey Graham in his pursuit of a seat upon Camden City Council. I think Jeffrey is a unique candidate with a perspective we need. He is a family man with young children, and because of this I think he can represent the needs of many other young families in the Camden area. While all of the current council members have important and impressive qualities, the direct representation of our younger generations is imperative, and with Walter Long leaving, we do not have such a voice on the council if not for Jeffrey Graham.

Reader supports Reuwer

I am supporting David Reuwer for probate judge in the coming election. In any election, voters must ask a couple of things: does the candidate know what he or she is doing, and does the candidate possess the proper attitude to best serve the people of Kershaw County. Well, Mr. Reuwer is a practicing lawyer and Elgin municipal judge experienced in probate matters including the new, revised probate code. Mr. Reuwer is a hardworking man dedicated to the protection, conservation, and celebration of the historical legacy of Kershaw County. He has a strong need to help others; it seems to ...

Reader: ‘vote no twice’

I see signs appearing throughout the county imploring you to “Vote Yes Twice” regarding the school referenda. If you favor tearing down perfectly good schools and Camden High’s football stadium, construction new ones to replace them, to the tune of $130 million plus interest; and if you want to pay higher taxes on everything you buy, then by all means vote yes.
