Occupy arrests not the smartest move

I didn't really mean to write about Gov. Nikki Haley again after last week's criticism of the S.C. Department of Health and Environmental Control's decision to grant a permit to the state of Georgia to dredge part of the shared Savannah River. I rarely write about the same person or topic twice in a row, but I can't keep quiet on Haley's decision to crack down on Occupy Columbia's, er, occupation of the State House grounds at night.

Few people attending a two-day charrette on a proposed "road diet" for Broad Street between York and DeKalb streets like the way Camden's main street looks today.

Finding the balance

Some 40 people crowded into one of Newman Furniture's former downtown homes Monday night to hear first-hand -- and respond to -- some of the ideas for putting a section of Broad Street on a "road diet." First proposed within Duany Plater-Zyberk's (DPZ) 2008 vision plan for Camden, the basic idea is to calm traffic on Broad Street between DeKalb and York streets by narrowing the U.S. highway from four lanes to two and, possibly, introduce angled parking. A summary meeting was scheduled for Tuesday night in the same location at 6 p.m.

Late Thursday, I read the news that the man Gov. Nikki Haley narrowly beat in 2010 -- Camden's own State Sen. Vincent Sheheen -- was calling for the entire S.C.

Camden celebrates completion of wastewater treatment plant

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 new plant replaces one built in 1979.
