New additions to downtown

Michelle Torres of the city of Camden Street Department puts the finishing touches on a new hanging basket on Broad Street. It is one of eight iron baskets being hung from light posts on Broad Street between DeKalb and Rutledge streets, and are provided by the Camden Garden Club. "We are delighted to see this beautiful improvement and are grateful to the Camden Garden Club for their investment in our downtown," Camden Mayor Tony Scully said. Each basket is planted with pansies and asparagus fern, which will provide color and texture for the coming months.

The skinny on the Common Core Standards

When I'm traveling between schools, I alternate listening to sports talk radio, political talk radio and Motown CDs (showing my age, I guess). Recently, I was listening to a nationally syndicated radio show, and I heard the host ranting about the Common Core Standards and government brainwashing. I know we live in an age of overstatement, but this seemed over the top. It might be useful for someone working with the Common Core Standards at the ground level, versus in the sensationalistic world of talk radio, to provide some information about this topic. To be sure, I don't ...

Noted and passed - Oct. 21, 2013

• During her years in Camden, Karen Eckford has taken on numerous civic responsibilities, donating countless hours to various causes. She now faces her most challenging assignment as she assumes the chairmanship of the KershawHealth Board of Trustees. The hospital is at a critical juncture and the next couple of years will go far in determining whether it remains independent or is taken over by a larger institution. We wish her well in her duties.

Cell phone towers

Members of the Lake Wateree Association, voicing the sentiments of many lake residents as well as people who live in other rural areas of the county, say more cell phone towers are needed to improve communication. The association urged people to attend a Monday night meeting of the county's planning and zoning commission to make their voices heard and they're also asking citizens to show up at the next county council meeting.
