John Rainey wants to make sure of one thing: what happens in Camden on March 29 will not be about him. Rainey said the unveiling of "Reconciliation," a piece of art featuring life-size statuary of two of Camden's native sons, will happen because of a unique collaboration. Yes, it will be his vision, but as the combined work of others to see that vision come to life. That, Rainey said during a recent interview, will make the day unique.

This week is Sunshine Week, that week of the year where journalists, especially in the newspaper business emphasize the importance of freedom of information acts (FOIA) and open government. Sunshine Week is a joint effort of the American Society of News Editors (ASNE) and the Reporters Committee for Freedom of the Press (RCFP). It's called Sunshine Week because the observation started in Florida by that state's press association in 2003. Florida is, of course, the Sunshine State.
Camden City Council will continue its discussion of whether or not to join the Central Midlands Regional Council of Governments' (COG) Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO) during its work session Tuesday afternoon.
