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.

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.

In November, voters rejected two referenda put on the ballot by the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) to replace or repair aging schools and other facilities.
