To coincide with the 20th anniversary of Earth Day, the Chronicle - Independent this week began a recycling program at the Camden office. The newspaper, which recycles newsprint for Kershaw County Activity Center, will also recycle white paper, computer paper and aluminum cans.


The Linde plant in Lugoff, through its “Rooting for America” community tree planting program, recently donated trees for planting along the nature trail and outdoor classrooms at Lugoff Elementary School. The Lugoff Garden Club assisted in the planting and will be involved in a long-term project with the trail, planting trees, flowers, and plants and erecting birdhouses and birdfeeders to serve as educational opportunities for the students.


The prestigious title of Honorman was awarded to Seaman recruit Charlton “Charley” Chandler at his recruit graduation ceremony, held in March in Great Lakes, Ill. Chandler was also a member of the Commander’s Company of Excellence, the highest ranking recruit company. The selection was based on criteria including individual performance of duty in all phases of basic training. This encompassed leadership, initiative, military bearing, response to orders, sportsmanship, general cleanliness, qualification of a good shipmate and high overall scholastic standing.  

Chandler has most recently been promoted to the rank of E3 and is continuing his studies at the Naval Prep School in Millington, Tenn. He is the son of Susan Brown Leviner of Camden and Walter David Chandler of Charlotte.


Eighteen contestants will compete in the first Miss Kershaw County Vocational Center Pageant, to be held at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Communications Lab in Building C at the KCVC.

Contestants are Susan Denise Belton, Rebecca Elaine Sullivan, Nicki Renee Brown, Angie Elizabeth Rabon, Melissa Anne Miles, Sissy Burrows, Amanda Lynne Kelly, Sharon Denise Cook, Michelle Loraine Morris, Melody Ann McNeill, Charity Danette Williams, Tara Elaine Peters, Lytonya Rogena Osborne, Angela Denice Kirkland, Nekki Je’Cenia Dixon, Stephanie Nicole Thornton, Aimee Shiver Greenm and Tonya Michelle Hilburn.

Contestants will be judged in four categories: appearance in sportswear, appearance in formal dress, academic achievement, and judges’ interview. The winner will receive a trophy, a half dozen roses, and small sized perfume of her choice from Belk of Camden, a dinner for two at the Magnolia Restaurant, and a make-over from Clinique. The 1990 Miss KCVC will also act as ambassador for the school at such activitgies as the adult graduation and the Christmas Parade. 


Kershaw County Memorial Hospital will sponsor a free seminar, titled “Midlife – No Crisis,” in the hospital dining room. Presented by Dr. John Moore, obstetrician/gynecologist, the seminar will provide an overview of menopause, covering what menopause actually is, what actually happens at this time in a woman’s life, what the symptoms are and how these symptoms are to be treated.

“Menopause is one of the most important and one of th most misunderstood times in a woman’s life,” Moore said.  “With today’s longer life expectancy, most women will spend one third of their lives beyond Menopause. Having all the facts can make a tremendous difference in improving a woman’s quality of life during these middle years.”

Anyone may attend the lecture, which is free and open to the public.
