Conquering the Carolinas

FEW 360, a youth sports organization started by Brian Chivers, had its girls' 12u AAU/travel basketball team, which is made up of Kershaw County girls 12 years of age and younger, win the NTBA North Carolina State Championship last weekend. It was the team's third tourney title in five weeks. After Few 360 defeated Next Level (SC), 42-16, the local entry defeated the Charlotte Dream Elite, 41-15, in the semifinals before taking down Asheville-based Team Carolina, 41-28, to win the championship.

Column: The tour guide

In 1969, Richard W. Lloyd responded to a letter from George Kassabaum of The American Institute of Architects, who was surveying American cities regarding their design and review process for historic buildings. Mr. Lloyd replied, "There is no true Review Board in Camden. Instead, there is a "Joint Committee on Old Houses," which came about in this way: an old frame residence was bought by two young men of Camden to be converted into a business office, but it was found that under the existing fire district setup, a 12-inch masonry wall was required, which was obviously out of the ...
