The ever-present cable news shows are already fixated on the 2016 presidential campaign, with the Republican race a wide-open affair and the Democratic nomination said to be Hillary Clinton's for the asking. Of course, we'll point out Clinton was also the overwhelming favorite in 2008 until Barack Obama came along and stole her candy. But one thing's for sure, no matter whom the parties nominate: massive amounts of money will be spent.

One of my weekly duties here at the Chronicle-Independent is to visit the Walter M. Crower Animal Shelter in Camden and take photos of pets available for adoption to be printed in our Friday edition each week. Actually, I take photos of two cats and two dogs and half of those are published weekly in the West Wateree Chronicle.

Murder is a strong word and truth be known it's not really what happens (unfortunately) when a crape myrtle, a Southern signature tree is topped, but it has become a familiar vernacular amongst plant people. If crape myrtles did in fact die when they were butchered, then the practice would stop.

PAKTIKA PROVINCE, Afghanistan -- Most of the young men and women serving in today's armed forces were children or teenagers on 9/11, watching the attacks on the World Trade Center on the news. The majority of their adult lives have since been forged by the nation's need for great men and women in uniform.

In his campaign ad titled "Focusing on Our Future" in the Oct. 10 edition of the C-I, Mayor Graham takes credit for several items that bear correction. First, his ad states that he is responsible for bringing the Farmers Market to downtown Camden. If my recollection of the particulars is correct, this statement is patently false. The year was 2005 and it was Rep. Laurie Funderburk and Andy Rollins with the Clemson Extension Service who wrote a small grant, the Bank of Camden (now First Community Bank) loaned the market the use of the lot, somebody else donated the tables ...

Dear Annie: My husband's only sibling is his 65-year-old brother, "Larry." Larry's mother spoiled him rotten. To say he's lazy is an understatement. He does nothing to help himself. He was fortunate enough to win a local election when he ran unopposed, and he held that office for 30 years.

An Elgin woman's internet "pen pal" has failed to repay $660. The Elgin woman told Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) deputies that her long-term Kentucky pen pal told her that she was behind in bills, that she had a large sum of medical bills, and "how bad her life was." The Elgin woman sent her pen pal the money through mail, and requested a note listing when the woman would pay her back. The letter sent said the Kentucky woman would send her the money on June 14th, but has failed to repay the money.

The dock was named Patriots Landing for the historical significance of the site. In 1780, American troops commanded by Col. Thomas Sumter ...

Many duties or expectations go far beyond what was anticipated. For example, my mother said, in regards to my future husband and mother-in-law, "He is wonderful, but I hate to see you become involved with her." I foolishly answered, "Mother, I am not marrying her." With a sideways look, she replied, "That is what you think!" How wise she was. Dealing with some parents as a teacher was quite the same. Nowhere is there a guide for dealing with parents. Most of mine were wonderful, supportive and kind; however, the following illustrates that dealing with a few parents is more ...
