A long, long time ago... oh, wait, that's another pop culture reference.
About 50 people spent some time Nov. 13 to help the city of Camden celebrate the official grand opening of its new wastewater treatment plant. The plant, which cost around $35 million to build, actually began operating in late-February. The city chose to wait until late in the year to have a ribbon cutting ceremony and offer tours of the plant while it worked to drain the old plant's remaining lagoon. The new plant replaces one built in 1979.
As 2015 approaches, Kershaw County's oldest continually operating business is celebrating its 150th anniversary by doing what it's always done: offering a wide variety of insurance products with competitive pricing and hometown service.

In addition to passing first reading of an ordinance authorizing an up to $4 million bond to renovate Rhame Arena and contribute to the construction of a community building at an expanded Central Carolina Technical College campus, Camden City Council took up several other matters at its Nov. 11 meeting.
A large crowd gathered early at Hampton Park in downtown Camden on Wednesday afternoon for a 3 p.m. ceremony honoring a long-time physician known as "Dr. Mac." About 70 people sat in chairs while another 30 to 40 stood across the street from the house where Dr. Francis N. McCorkle first lived in Camden. Several people were on the agenda to speak. The Camden Military Academy (CMA) color guard became a last-minute addition, representing the facility where McCorkle has served as school doctor for 57 years.
In July, KershawHealth reported scoring 100 percent on six quality core measures for the third month in a row. Monday, KershawHealth Board Vice Chair Dr. Tallulah Holmstrom reported four of those core measures struck the 100 percent again for at least six months, ending in September. Holmstrom, chair of the board's quality committee, reported one core measure hit 100 percent for the ninth straight month.
Camden City Council voted unanimously Tuesday night to approve first reading of an ordinance that would authorize the issuance of an up to $4 million bond to pay for renovations at Rhame Arena and pitch in to the construction of a community building at Central Carolina Technical College's proposed expanded campus.
Former Kershaw County Sheriff's Office (KCSO) Capt. David Thomley is dropping his lawsuit against Sheriff Jim Matthews. Thomley lost the Republican nomination to Matthews in 2010, who went on to be elected sheriff in that year's general election. Thomley lost again to Matthews this July when the sheriff beat him in the Republican primary and there were no Democratic contenders.
Stories like this normally open with a phrase about a dream -- its becoming real, the "culmination of" or, even, "something like a." But, the official opening of the Jackson Teen Center (JTC) has more to do with the keeping of a promise.
