Camden has some "very dynamic market things" going on, according to Tripp Muldrow of Arnett Muldrow, the Greenville-based firm hired by the city of Camden to conduct a marketing study, tourism plan and branding effort.
This week is National Newspaper Week but I felt that the federal government shutdown was more important and was struck by several things during the week I wanted to share.
It's hard to argue with the numbers: the S.C. Department of Corrections (SCDC) has reduced its inmate population almost to 1998 levels and begun generating a surplus after several years of severe deficits.

Bill Byars spent his last day as the director of the S.C. Department of Corrections (SCDC) Monday. It marked the third time Byars, who lives in Kershaw County just north of Camden, has retired from some type of public or government service.
Hundreds of people -- perhaps several thousand -- attended Camden's 18th annual Fire Fest at Rhame Arena Saturday. Many of those people lined a long stretch of Broad Street to watch as hundreds of fire trucks and related vehicles -- some vintage and some from as far away as Pennsylvania -- paraded through the city to the arena. Those same people cheered as a pair of skydivers, one trailing South Carolina's Palmetto flag, the other the American flag, landed in a field behind the arena.

How to define Camden? That is the central question surrounding a new effort to market the city to tourists that kicked off Wednesday night at the historic Robert Mills Courthouse. Using a series of three "fun" questions, Tripp Muldrow, of Greenville-based marketing firm Arnett Muldrow, got most of about 75 residents to help describe Camden:
I've always been a physically small person. As I'm sure many of you can imagine, that led to being bullied quite a bit as a younger person. In fact, I'd dare say that it wasn't until my sophomore year of college that most of the folks around me matured enough not to engage in such behavior.
