The legend of Lloyd Seay

Their histories, accurate and complete, are lost to time and buried with them and those who knew them. I wish I knew more for their stories would read like a page-turning novel.

Star Trek ... in the news!

OK, OK, yes I’m talking Star Trek again, but hang on, this is really more about newspapers than Star Trek. All right, maybe 50-50.

Not lost, just seeing the sights

In 1964, the World’s Fair was in New York City. I was 6 years old and went with my parents and older sister to the fair. New York City seemed like a different world to a little boy from Dexter, Mo., but it was all good. We rode on subway trains, we had cheeseburgers in a diner where the staff had funny accents and rode the Staten Island Ferry and saw the Statue of Liberty. I saw a billboard that had the Marlboro man blowing smoke out of his mouth. We were living it up.

Noted and passed - July 28, 2014

• Friday’s report that Amtrak is going to spend the next several months refurbishing Camden’s passenger rail station off West DeKalb Street is welcome news. Built in 1937, it has shown its age for decades and never more so than now with holes in the platform’s canopy, rotting timbers and other problems that make it a less than desirable place to stop. Amtrak says their No. 1 priority is making the facility Americans with Disabilities Act compliant -- and that’s a very good thing -- from the parking lot to the station and onto the platform and train. But ...

Rhame Arena

We’re glad to see that the city of Camden is exploring alternatives for aging Rhame Arena. The building is becoming more dilapidated with each passing year, and something needs to be done, whether it’s razing it or restoring it. Of course, money is a factor, just as it is in all government decisions these days. We will say that city officials have overworked the bureaucratic jargon in their appraisal of the situation, saying an “adaptive reuse” could be a possible alternative. We are assuming “adaptive reuse” means repairing the building and making it feasible for some type of ...

A disturbing trend

We wrote recently of the disturbing trend in the White House of spinning every issue through press spokesmen rather than engaging in open questioning about issues of interest to Americans. A lack of transparency isn’t limited to the federal government, as the S.C. Supreme Court has recently issued two troubling rulings which limit public access in the Palmetto State.

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.
