KC Library to host ‘Kindie Rock’ Monday at the FAC

"Kindie rock" may not be the most commonly known type of music, but that might be changing. Defined by its use of themes for children younger than 10, but in a style that can be enjoyed by parents as well people of all ages, "kindie rock" is one of the fastest growing segments of the music industry.

Truck route

We're glad to see that another hurdle has been cleared in the city of Camden's efforts to get a truck bypass of the downtown area established. The Santee-Lynches Council of Governments recently voted unanimously to approve all three segments of the proposed truck route, and the vote also means about $17 million worth of state and federal funding will be released for the project. Obviously, that's a big step forward and puts the project into "when is this going to happen" status rather than "is this ever going to happen?" condition.

YMCA/sports complex will benefit all

For several months I watched the pro and con actions concerning the Camden Sports Complex. As the information seemed to be so different, I decided to research the topic myself. As I researched the argument against the Camden Sports Complex, it evolved from one reason to another and then another. First, it would compete with local business, then it was too large an expenditure. I've witnessed multiple petitions, speaking at public forums in city council, and public displays of booing and heckling at the speakers for the Sports Complex. I stood, listened and watched as some have falsely claimed ...

“Robert Mills: Designs for Democracy”

Robert Mills was the first American born and trained architect. He called himself "Robert Mills, Architect of Public Buildings." Indeed, Mills established a new scale and standard for public buildings in Washington, D. C. when he designed the Treasury Building, the Patent Office, and the General Post Office in the 1830s and early 1840s. In other parts of the country, Mills designed buildings that were sensitive to regional values and local architectural traditions. Always his attention was on permanency and fireproofing for his public buildings.

A scorned South Carolina hero

April 11, 2014 was a very important day in the history of South Carolina. Few people noticed that anything much happened – but I would argue that this was the day we as a state did two very important things.
