85 mph

Don't be surprised if some member of the S.C. General Assembly reads of the new 85-mile-an-hour speed limit in Texas and decides that would be a good idea for the Palmetto State. We hope that won't happen, but we'll never be flabbergasted at any proposal that includes a higher driving speed, which to some lawmakers equates with motherhood and apple pie.

The drawbacks of being young

When people ask me if I would not like to be young again --- specifically to be a teenager, I am sure they have forgotten the age. Also, when they ask me how I tolerated teaching that age, I know they are mistaken. One person even told me what a waste of time my occupation had been! Being a teenager is one of the most difficult yet rewarding times of a person's life. The effort to become independent is so hard. When my mother became annoyed when anyone called me "pretty" and coupled it with the compliment about her grandchild ...

DHEC: ‘most ... danger’ from explosion, not chemicals

(The online version of this story has been corrected to reflect, as indicated in the second paragraph, that "...the explosion resulted in the release of chemicals..." and not "from the release" as published in Wednesday's print edition of the story. The C-I apologizes for any confusion.)

More 'Y' support

Being in a working family in this age is very difficult without the help of others. As a father of three, there is hardly ever enough time or resources close to me to create the healthy environment I would like for my family. As a former Camden high athlete, I know how important staying in touch with your health and your community really is, and that is why I am proud to support the effort for a Camden YMCA!

Note and passed - Sept. 10, 2010

• Penn State pedophile Jerry Sandusky says he regrets not testifying at his child sex-abuse trial earlier this year. Sandusky, who's awaiting sentencing after being convicted of multiple counts of abusing young boys, still maintains his innocence despite crushing evidence against him and the testimony of several of his victims. Sandusky isn't likely to convince anyone that he's innocent.

Falling on Fair

A post oak that stood guard over Camden Elementary School (seen to the right) for more than 60 years fell during the early morning hours Friday across Fair Street. Camden Urban Forester Liz Gilland said the tree fell due to a combination of root rot, compacted soil, pavement around the roots and strong winds from a passing storm earlier in the night. Gilland said that as the tree fell, it took a utility pole and electric wire with it, and smashed into a security light across the street, causing an electric outage at the school and approximately 15 to 20 ...
