Tucker: A long, proud history of incompetence

After I wrote a column last week detailing my secret dream of becoming a symphony conductor, my friend Waylon Fortenberry of Chesterfield County called me.

Parker: Mr. Hughes goes to Washington

WASHINGTON -- When postal worker Doug Hughes -- otherwise known as the gyrocopter dude -- landed his gizmo on the West Lawn of the Capitol, he wasn’t worried about being shot down, he says.

Phillips: The entitled generation

In what could be considered an extension of my column from last week, which was about the misuse and abuse of government programs such as “food stamps,” EBT cards and welfare, I’ve been giving the matter a lot of thought on a broader scale.

Noble: Business leaders in ‘small town’ S.C.

It is often said South Carolina is a big small town where everyone knows everyone else. And if we don’t know someone personally, then it’s usually “I know who they are.”

Parker: 2016 -- The woman trap

WASHINGTON -- Here we go. If you’re a woman who might prefer someone other than Hillary Clinton as the next president of the United States, you’re a self-loathing, anti-woman traitor.

Editorial: Social Security

Lawmakers in Washington have long ignored the fact that the Social Security system in this country is broken. On the brink of insolvency, Social Security needs major revamping, whether it comes in the form of benefit reductions, tax increases or both. Congress has refused to consider benefit cuts decades out in the future, even for young adults who are just now starting to pay into the system. They are turning their backs on such simple fixes as delaying the age by a year or two at which people can start receiving their monthly allotments. Bear in mind, we aren’t ...

Editorial: GOP needs to broaden appeal

The Republican presidential field is already getting crowded, and the South Carolina GOP primary is often viewed as a bellwether for White House hopefuls. Because this is a conservative state, candidates in past years have often moved to the right while campaigning here. But a new poll shows Republican voters in South Carolina might be moving away from some of the hard-line social issues they have embraced in the past. As a side note, many political observers believe the party “had better get out of people’s bedrooms if it wants to broaden its appeal.”

Noted and passed - April 20, 2015

• Last week’s seizure by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) of Old Armory Steak & Seafood on Rutledge Street marks at least the temporary loss of one of Camden and Kershaw County’s premier restaurants. It is an unfortunate blow to the downtown Camden economy. Each business provides potential traffic to another and the loss of any one diminishes such beneficial ripple effects. Locals cheered the Old Armory’s opening in 2006 so soon after the closing of the previous tenant, The Paddock. Many people and businesses have celebrated the holidays, proms, anniversaries, engagements, weddings, birthdays and more at the Old ...

Editorial: Jordan Spieth

With Augusta being only a couple hours away from Kershaw County, the Masters golf tournament holds a great deal of allure for this area. The azaleas at Augusta National are famous for their popping colors and their beauty, but they’re no prettier than those which are currently at their peak in Camden, we might add. But there’s something magical about the Masters, which is ranked by many players as the one tournament they’d like to win more than any other.

Editorial: Improving the city

There have been many great additions to the Camden landscape in recent years -- to name a few, the statues of Joseph Kershaw and King Haiglar at the Town Green; the Bernard Baruch and Larry Doby statuary at the Camden Archives; and the new pocket park where the former Maxway building stood. All these have added to the town's appearance and ambience.

• Congratulations to Johnny Deal and Richard Walkirch for receiving, respectively, the United Way of Kershaw County’s Jake Watson and Ann Dallas awards. Deal, often known as “Mr. Camden” or “Mr. Facebook” around town, is one of many people’s favorite personalities. That doesn’t necessarily win you awards. What does is a commitment to community involvement, which Deal has in spades, working with the Camden Jaycees, Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce, Community Medical Clinic, Fine Arts Center of Kershaw County, the United Way and more. As for volunteerism, we can’t imagine a more worthy recipient for the Dallas ...

Letter: Reader concerned about society’s ‘suicide’

I write this based on a fear for the well-being and future of America. If I am wrong, somebody set me straight, please. The historian philosopher Arnold Toynbee said, “Civilizations die from suicide, not murder, and start to decay when they lose their moral fiber and the cultural elite turns parasitic, exploiting the masses.” In other words, they die from within. The history of the rise and fall of great civilizations lends support to this.

Letter: Reader says Johnny is the ‘Real Deal’

Please permit me to share my thoughts with your readers about Johnny “Mr. Camden” Deal. He was a most deserving recipient of the Jake Watson Award. That award holds a special meaning to me. Jake Watson's grandmother and my paternal great-grandfather were siblings from Greenwood. Jake was a true Camden icon, as is Johnny. Equal only to my own is Johnny’s love for our community. Never is he seen without that big, friendly grin. We need more people like him.  Johnny is the “Real Deal.”

Letter: Morgan thanks Special Olympics organizers

I wanted to take the opportunity to thank everyone who worked so hard over the past year to make Special Olympics such a wonderful and memorable event.  Many, many thanks to the Special Olympics Committee, to the countless teachers and volunteers who worked at the event, and to everyone at Camden Military Academy and Headmaster Dr. Eric Boland for hosting the day.
