Seldom have I witnessed such a gross malfunctioning of local governments as that which has developed in Camden and Kershaw County over the future of recreation programs to serve the citizenry. The city of Camden played the first card, a bizarre one, by announcing that the city would attempt to construct a “sports complex,” with no participation by the countywide recreation agency that currently operates programs for all the residents of the county, including those who reside inside the city limits. The consolidation of city and county recreation programs decades ago is one of the most significant accomplishments in local government that has ever occurred; the city’s project threatens to undermine the countywide program and duplicate programs and facilities at enormous cost to the taxpayers.
