Phillips: Come on, spring!

One of the many perks of living in the Midlands of South Carolina is our moderate climate. OK, maybe it hasn’t felt so moderate the past few weeks, but think about New York, Boston, Minnesota, Michigan and other northern areas. Now, they know what cold really is!

Scully: The clinic

If the soul of Camden resides in its communities of faith, surely its heart sits at 110 C East DeKalb St., the home of the Community Medical Clinic of Kershaw County, known far and wide as “The Free Clinic.” The outpouring of love at the Clinic has proven to be a transformative force, continuously healing wounds of body, mind, and spirit.

Jenkins: A story in the scat

Two weeks ago, during our weekly field trip, I was walking with my students along a dirt road in Manchester State Forest. There upon the dirt was a hairy strand of something, about the size of a cheap cigar and tapered at both ends. Earlier that day, we examined paw prints in the sand on the same dirt road. The students drew good connections from those tracks to this new observation, correctly calling it coyote scat. Coyotes are funny this way, dropping their scat in obvious places. In addition to waste excretion, they use feces to communicate their presence to ...

Parker: ‘Just look at him’

WASHINGTON -- “At least nobody died,” we often hear in politics to explain away some regrettable act. As in:

Tatum: Absolutely, free range kids!

So I read recently where some New England town has banned sledding, allegedly in the name of safety, but more in fear of possible lawsuits.

Parker: The GOP -- a tragedy in 52 acts

WASHINGTON -- I’m getting that deja vu feeling as House Republicans these past several days have failed to alter the public’s perception they’re incapable of governing.

Editorials

Editorial: Gerrymandering

Here in South Carolina, as in so many other states, gerrymandering -- in which political parties redraw the lines of voting districts to suit their own purposes -- is a fact of life. It was done when Democrats controlled the state, and now it’s done by Republicans. One of the nationwide side effects of gerrymandering is creating more partisan divide. Because districts are set up to be safe for one party, there’s not much interest in candidates having to appeal to independent voters or those who aren’t hard-line adherents of either party. And, by the way, the word gerrymander ...

Editorial: Crape scolding

One thing which makes Camden so appealing is its attention to and love for trees. The city is graced with thousands of them, and they add immeasurably to the atmosphere of our municipality. The Camden Tree Foundation and its many volunteers work tirelessly to plant new trees and keep existing ones healthy, and the city of Camden has had the foresight to hire a professional to oversee the arboreal health of the area. But a recent newspaper column by the town’s urban forester, Liz Gilland, was a bit troubling in its tone.

Noted and passed - March 2, 2015

• We were very glad to see Kershaw County Council recognize ALPHA Center Executive Director Paul Napper recently. Napper has served as The ALPHA Center’s director for three decades. In all that time, he has also managed to find the time to serve on numerous local, state and even federal boards and commissions. Most recently, he stepped down from a seat on the KershawHealth Board of Trustees only to fill an open seat on the Central Carolina Technical College (CCTC) Area Commission two days later. As always, Napper was humble in receiving council’s resolution honoring him, saying it really ...

Letter: Reader takes it upon self to look into crape myrtle mystery

Throughout my lifetime, I have been interested in all decorative plants, although my specialty is the Camellia. I was shocked while reading the editorial by one of my favorite editors lambasting one of my favorite columnists about wording in a column on crape myrtles. For some unknown reason (probably some health problem), I had failed to read the column in question. My wife left me in this world to fend for myself while she enjoys heaven and this gives me the luxury of being able to pile newspapers by my chair in sort of a too high, messy pile to ...

Letter: Camden resident upset about The State’s ‘garbage’

Surely something can be done about The State paper throwing its “Extra” on the ground and roads. Several of us on Fire Tower Road have called and E-mailed its office and received no reply, just more trash. We’ve called the City of Camden, the County and Sheriff’s offices to no avail.

Letter: Brown lauds Sheheen for CCRA service

Recently, a rather important occasion went unnoticed in Camden. Bob Sheheen retired after 38 years on the board of the Carolina Cup Racing Association. In many of these years, he served as vice chairman.

Letter: Reader says KCSD referenda not chamber issue

Last November, we voted down the referendum that would empower the KCSD to tear down usable and functioning schools and construct replacement along with a new or rehabilitated Camden High football stadium. All it was going to cost was $130 million plus interest. But, fear not, they also asked us to approve a “penny” sales tax to pay for it.
