Supreme Court gets it wrong again

It seems like every year, I have to write a story about how the U.S. Supreme Court is continuing to make campaign finances worse and worse. In 2010, it was the court's Citizens United decision. In 2012, the court's refusal to even reconsider the Citizens United case. In 2013, I wrote about the arguments made in McCutcheon vs. Federal Election Commission (FEC).

The city of Camden is working on a plan that would keep the city from having to dig a trench on Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site property on the west side of Broad Street. Thursday, City Manager Mel Pearson said the city now hopes to install sections of a force main sewer line around Rhame Arena on the east side of Broad Street. That would follow part of a path already planned for a gravity sewer line being installed as part of the same project, he said.

The Boykin Spaniel comes home for national trial

The story goes something like this: sometime in the early 1900s -- likely between 1905 and 1910 -- Alec White was approaching his church in Spartanburg, close to finishing the 15-minute walk from his home, when he came across a little brown spaniel-looking dog. Accounts differ as to exactly which church White attended (most likely First Presbyterian) or whether or not the stray managed to get inside the church. The one fact that has held up during the 100 years is that the dog was waiting outside for him and followed him home.
