Let's make something perfectly clear: The S.C. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) is not dead, but the S.C. Supreme Court is sure acting like they're trying to kill it.

My grandmother -- Daddy's mother -- was sometimes called "crazy" by others who didn't quite understand her eccentric ways. Of course, in the South, we are proud of such a label for it means that we are interesting and worthy of being the center of coffee and cake conversation.

When you want to learn to do something well, it's not a bad idea to get training and advice from an expert. That was the case July 12 when Wateree Gymnastics Center in Camden welcomed Olympic gold medalist and former world champion gymnast Nastia Liukin to lead a day-long seminar and training session for young girls.

WASHINGTON -- Sarah Palin is right about impeaching President Obama.

With today's plethora of online news and the subsequent discussion forums that accompany most Internet articles, there is a lot of confusion on the somewhat vague thing called "freedom of speech." Really, it's not vague at all, but it sure seems to be quite vague to those who don't really know what it means. What it doesn't mean is you have the right to say whatever you want to whenever you want to without consequences.

The war on cancer, begun with so much optimism several decades ago, has not proven to be as successful as scientists and physicians had hoped. Though there have certainly been breakthroughs, especially in the field of early diagnosis, cures for many forms of cancer have remained elusive.

I stood on the edge of a swimming pool over the Fourth of July weekend and wavered between whether I should jump in or take the steps. I'd tested the waters with a foot dip and I knew they were cold. I spent the holiday in South Point, Ohio, which had just had some unseasonably cold nights. Though the sun was high in the summer sky, the water had not been warmed.

I am writing to support the proposed ordinance to regulate the discharge of firearms in the county.
July 09, 2014 | Dianne Galloway Camden | Letters
Kershaw County Council is making an attempt by backdoor rulings to attempt to eliminate hunting by prohibiting discharge of firearms within 300 yards of a residence, church, or school. There are very few places where you can go and not be within 300 yards of a prohibited structure. The place I have set up is within 300 yards, but I am able to shoot away from the house. If I try to move 300 yards, I may not be able to use the same target, which is located away from the structure.
