Noted and passed - Oct. 29, 2012

• In the midst of all the presidential punditry and endless spin, we were struck recently by the simple concept of how much sense it would make to have a single six-year term for the presidency, with re-election not allowed. Chief executives then could accomplish things without always stopping to check the political winds. Perhaps best of all, we would only be subjected to the endless campaign tripe every six years instead of every four.

Museum article should help

Early this AM (Friday), I picked up a copy of your paper and I was absolutely delighted that you wrote such a fine article detailing my proposal to bringing my collections back to Camden in the form of a local museum. It was an outstanding article. If we are successful in opening this downtown museum, it will be largely due to the article you wrote! I appreciated this more than you will ever know.

Statuary

As South Carolina's oldest inland city, Camden has a proud historical heritage and, fortunately, a populace that embraces it and promotes it. The latest chapter in the historical tableau was unveiled yesterday afternoon when statues of Joseph Kershaw, one of the founders of the town, and King Hagler a Native American leader who assisted the people of this area during the French and Indian War, were unveiled on the Town Green.

Ethics reform: a grand illusion

Thursday, October 18, 2012 was another day with another full-throated proposal for ethics reform from the political class in Columbia. This time, our governor heralded the creation of a "commission" (at least she doesn't label it "blue ribbon") to make "recommendations" to the General Assembly concerning "reform" of the current ethics laws.

The Archives’ little mystery figurine

Only an archivist/museum person gets excited about brand new acid-free boxes. I felt like it was Christmas when the shipping boxes from Gaylord Bros. Inc. began to arrive! Finally, the work of rehousing the collection in proper containers could begin. So, box by box, each collection was taken out of its old container and placed in new packaging. The database was checked for accuracy and the new boxes were placed back on the shelves in the stacks. All but this one box … as I peered inside to see what it contained, a little face with an agonizing expression peeked ...

Editorial: Crape scolding

One thing which makes Camden so appealing is its attention to and love for trees. The city is graced with thousands of them, and they add immeasurably to the atmosphere of our municipality. The Camden Tree Foundation and its many volunteers work tirelessly to plant new trees and keep existing ones healthy, and the city of Camden has had the foresight to hire a professional to oversee the arboreal health of the area. But a recent newspaper column by the town's urban forester, Liz Gilland, was a bit troubling in its tone.

Letter: Reader says KCSD referenda not chamber issue

Last November, we voted down the referendum that would empower the KCSD to tear down usable and functioning schools and construct replacement along with a new or rehabilitated Camden High football stadium. All it was going to cost was $130 million plus interest. But, fear not, they also asked us to approve a "penny" sales tax to pay for it.

The aviator's helmet

Bob Clithero displays a vintage leather pilot's helmet of a type that would have been used by aviators in the early 20th century. Clithero spoke about Winston Groom's book, "The Aviators," during a recent meeting of the Golden K Club. The book is about three giants of aviation -- Jimmy Doolittle, Charles Lindbergh, and Eddie Rickenbacker -- and their enormous influence and contribution to aviation and to the world. All three, Clithero said, were raised in relative poverty and estranged from their fathers, but had strong relationships with their mothers. All three were innovators and mechanical geniuses. All three survived ...
