The Kershaw County School Board made a much-postponed decision Thursday, appointing Betty Sue Webber, ATEC’s acting director, to the permanent leadership position at the district’s vocational school next year.

Among other administrative appointments announced at the meeting was that of Willie Mickle, former Lugoff-Elgin High School principal, who will serve as an assistant principal at Camden Middle School next year.

Webber had received strong support from her faculty and from other community members, who spoke on her behalf at previous board meetings. The item had been on the agenda twice before but had been postponed.


Camden is now one step closer to a long sought after historic preservation ordinance as well as new trees along Broad Street. Camden City Council unanimously approved first reading of the historic preservation measure, which Camden preservationists have been wrangling over for years.

Approval of the ordinance would create a Camden Historic Landmarks Commission, responsible for determining what properties in the city have historic value and also the extent to which such properties can be altered without destroying that value.


Nearly 30 contestants from Kershaw County’s four public high schools will vie for the crown of Miss ATEC at 7:30 p.m. Saturday in the Applied Technology Education Campus’ communications lab. The contestants are Sharonda Moore, Cheryka Leonard, Jacobia Adamson, Missy Sharpe, Nikkie Oddie, Teresa Harper, Stephany Cole, Theresa Woods, Shannon Brown, Kami Odom, Katie Cox, Brandie Thompkins, Tonya Hawkes, Paula Hinson, Sheila Woods, Jenny Wilson, Candace Oakley, Stephanie Lee, Tara Prater, Michelle Keasler, Colette Robinson, Lisa Huggins, Haylee Corley, Katrina Owens, Tonya Helms, Heidi Furniss, Tara Baker, Adrienne Nelson, and Kitwana Abercrombie. Contestants will be judged on academic achievement, interview, and appearance in casual and evening wear.


Although several supermarkets in Camden boast bakeries, Mulberry Market owners Peter and Fran Rowland say they are confident their new bake shop at 536 E. DeKalb St. will fill a niche the supermarkets have just been too big to fit into.

The Mulberry Market, which opened Friday in the building once occupied by the old Camden Bakery, is a community bake shop run by hometown people, which Peter Rowland said separates his operation from the bakery/delis of the bigger stores.

Peter Rowland said he wants the goods from his establishment to be a step above those from other places, thus the decision to make his own dough fresh, mix his own fruit fillings and use and imported brand of pure butter only available to professional bakeries.
