Roosters part of Camden’s heritage

This is a copy of my letter to the Camden Planning Commission and to Camden City Council. I have had many phone calls from people concerned about this proposed ordinance, as well as calls from my neighbors supporting my having roosters. I have been advised that I am grandfathered, but more restrictive covenants, and zoning ordinances are not the answer for Camden. Any noise nuisance noise cases should be handled on an individual basis, whether they are due to barking dogs, loud music, or roosters.

Classically Carolina

"We are Camden, a place surrounded by history. Long a home of Native Americans, we were founded not long after Carolina was separated into North and South. Here, King Haigler, the Catawba chief, worked for peace among natives and colonists along the banks of the Wateree. Here, Patriots suffered one of the worst defeats in the Revolutionary War. Yet, from this place the tide of war would turn and ultimately lead to victory for a fledgling nation built on ideals of equality, freedom, and hope."

Exploring Ancient Egypt

Sixth grade students at Camden Middle School (CMS) recently celebrated Mummy Day, a culmination of a unit of study on Ancient Egypt. During the school day, students traveled to four stations where they participated in cross curriculum activities. Students created life-size sarcophagi, found the surface area of pyramids that they then constructed, participated in a virtual pharaoh's mummification process, and then mummified chicken legs.

Power grab

One of the many problems in politics today is that many elected officials begin to believe they are smarter than the electorate and feel they should be able to make decisions that contravene public attitudes. They justify this, of course, in a myriad of ways. The recent resignation of a Colorado state senator is the ultimate in arrogance when it comes to ignoring the voters and trying to circumvent the will of the people.
