Beard collection opens Thursday at Archives

Visitors won't be able to help but stop and stare at the giant rifle at the Camden Archives and Museum.

Saying he no longer wanted to be "a distraction," Scott Ziemke announced at the beginning of Monday's KershawHealth Board of Trustees meeting that he was stepping back from his role as the board's chairman.
