In honor of International Walk to School Day, Lugoff Elementary School (LES) students walked around their school Wednesday morning. LES Principal Melissa Lloyd said that because few students walk to school, staff thought it would be a great idea to "have the entire student body get a bit of morning exercise while walking around the entire school."

Noted and passed

• We couldn't help but be a bit wistful last week upon reading that DuPont is making a $500-million plant expansion at its Moncks Corner facility, which produces Kevlar. We recall fondly the glory days of DuPont in Kershaw County, when the May Plant had more than 4,000 people on the payroll in high-paying, steady jobs. The company, like most large corporations then, transferred many people frequently, which led to an influx and egress of talented, interesting people into and out of this area. Many have remained here in Camden even after DuPont sold its May Plant -- we're ...

School 'historians'

On Feb. 4, 1904, the Camden Chronicle and the Wateree Messenger were joined by a third newspaper in Camden, the People, whose editor was J. A. Shrock. In his first issue editor Shrock introduced a serial feature, "Graded School Compositions," which appeared in almost every issue until late May 1904. Shrock explained, "The editor was unfortunate … to secure only a limited education, and feels the keenest interest in assisting others who were more fortunate than himself."

‘Kung Fu Panda’ director to helm animated Noah film

Another version of the story of Noah is headed to the big screen from Unified Pictures, and while it's unclear whether it will be any more faithful to the biblical source material than the recent sci-fi/fantasy-inflected version by Oscar-nominated auteur Darren Aronofsky, it's nabbed a director that should go down better with family audiences.

Why I don't let my kids beat me in board games

My family loves to play games together. It is a tradition in my husband's extended family to spend a lot of time playing games. We've continued this tradition in our own family, spending weekend nights and vacation time playing party, card and board games.

Making light of a mess

Life is messy. As a parent, that day will come when you walk into a giant mess created by your "angelic" children. When you see the mess, your first reaction is to yell and get upset.

7 ways to not be ruled by lists

Lists can rule over us like dictators who sport perfectly coiffed hair, pterodactyl brooches and high heels. Many of us know what it's like to be governed by our own to-do lists, driving some of us to become "anti-list-ivists" who refuse to write anything down. This scenario, however, can be just as counterproductive as the other.
