Every man on the dock had caught fish. One man caught more fish than the limit. The game warden checked around. He asked each man. "Are these your fish?" Of course everybody said it wasn't theirs. Finally the warden turned to a little boy who had been fishing. "Son," he asked, "have you caught any fish?" "No, sir," replied the boy. "I haven't even had a bite all day." "Here!" said the warden. "These must be yours."

A crisis offers union-busting opportunity

If anything is clear in the labor clash that has brought Wisconsin government to a screeching halt it is how neither side has been all that clear about what the fight really is about.

Lance Robinson marched through Camden Feb. 11 on his way to Columbia as part of his Brother to Brother Day March across America.

The face(s) of Kershaw County public education

While sorting through the papers of a deceased friend of mine who wished them given to the South Caroliniana Library, I came across a 1970-71 annual of the Kershaw County Vocational Center. I soon visited Howard Branham, director of the Camden Archives and Museum, to see if they had a copy in their collection. They did not but in a few minutes Howard made a copy and added it to their collection.

Noted and passed

• We're glad to see Kershaw County Council moving toward a ban on smoking in county-owned vehicles. Employees have the right to smoke if they wish, of course, but the prohibition on puffing in vehicles merely extends the present policy which bans smoking in county buildings. Cigarette smoke odor lingers in vehicles, and non-smoking employees shouldn't have to put up with it.

Football brawl

What should have been a celebration of a sturdy football win by Camden High School (CHS) turned into an ugly incident Friday night at Zemp Stadium when a brawl occurred as players went through the handshake line following the game. The incident led to a significant amount of publicity across the state, causing a black eye to CHS and the city itself. While various investigations of the fight continue, including scrutiny by the Camden Police Department for possible criminal conduct, it appears the brawl was triggered by Dreher players.
