Parker: Who’s the studliest of them all?

WASHINGTON -- Because so many Republicans want to be president -- or at least pretend they do -- debate organizers have decided to eliminate the least popular from the stage based on how they rank in the latest national polls.

Noble: S.C. profiles in courage

As a very young boy of 9 years old, I first became interested in politics when my father off-handedly encouraged me to watch the Kennedy-Nixon presidential debate in 1960. It changed my life -- literally.

Cahn: The news from next door

I don’t often get the chance, simply due to my work schedule, but every now and then I like to see what our sister paper in Bishopville, the Lee County Observer, has on its front page.

Rich: The wealth of being poor

My people, as I have long said, were raised up on hard times in the Appalachian foothills. I don’t know that I had a grandparent who ever saw the sum of $500 at one time or even held a $100 bill in hand.

Editorial: Medical marijuana

Though the legalization of medical marijuana appears to be a dead issue in this session of the General Assembly, we hope lawmakers won’t forget about it and that there will be an attempt to revive the issue next year. It is, of course, an emotional matter for many people, and there are those who believe legalizing marijuana for medical purposes will be the first wave of massive use by people who are trying to skirt the law. Both the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division and S.C. Medical Association oppose the bill, with a former president of the ...

Noted and passed - May 25, 2015

• We hope the community will join us in cheering on five Camden Military Academy (CMA) cadets who will travel in June to the University of Maryland to enter their National History Day performance piece into competition. The play is based on events from the 1950s and ’60s surrounding the Civil Rights movement in Summerton, just an hour south of Camden. It’s not just a matter of grabbing a few quotes off the internet and slapping together a script. The cadets, lead by CMA Dean of Students John Heflin, extensively researched the events leading to the landmark Briggs v. Elliott ...

Editorial: Judge Kinard

Ernest Kinard, who died earlier this week, was made for the law. Possessed of a keen intellect and a probing curiosity, Kinard practiced law for 24 years in Camden before being elected a circuit court judge in 1988.  He remained on the bench until his retirement in 2010, and in a “keep working” program for retired judges, he continued until recently. In all his years as a judge, he never missed a day of holding court, establishing a remarkable record of consistency and longevity. Kinard mentored a number of young attorneys who practiced with him or clerked for him over ...

‘Beechwood PDD (Planning Department Disaster)’

I attended the (Camden) Planning (Commission) meeting regarding the Beechwood Plantation development, and left with more questions to be asked than questions answered. For those of you who don’t know what is proposed, the developers are talking of 254 residences, rentals and condos; a 24-7 assisted living facility; and more. We have had two patio homes built in Kirkover Hills during the last couple of years; these two did not sell, they are rentals, with four cars parked in the front yard. I don’t believe there is a need for this large scale development.
