What does a cemetery tell us?

For several thousand years historians and others have known a cemetery indicates a local town or community's awareness of its connection to past generations. This historical awareness imparts a sense of continuity from the past to the present and an expected continuation into the future. They know a cemetery tells one much about the history, traditions, burial practices, culture, etc. of a local area.

A salute to all our homemakers

You know how attics are. They're filled with junk, Christmas stuff and memories that you can't toss away. The other day as I was digging through boxes, bound and determined, to find a dress pattern from 15 years ago, I found a scrapbook from my high school FHA years.

Historic Camden's position on Zemp Stadium remains unchanged from the two published Historic Camden Blog articles dated November 7, 2011 (http://historiccamdenblog.tumblr.com/).

Reader supports Burns for county council chair

The military is known for producing leaders of strong character and ethics. Throughout his military career, Julian Burns proved himself to be one of those successful leaders. You don't earn the rank of major general if you're not among the best the military has to offer … and then you don't go on to be successful at an international corporation unless you have the agility and skills to deliver every single day in the tough business world of today.

Zemp Stadium

Zemp Stadium is celebrating its 85th anniversary, making it the longest continuously operating high school football stadium in the state. As we look back at its history -- as we did Wednesday -- it is also worth taking a second look at its possible future. One outcome is replacement, part of a pair of Kershaw County School District referenda on the Nov. 4 ballot. Under that scenario, Zemp would be replaced at the Camden High School (CHS) athletic complex on Ehrenclou Drive, leaving the original facility to a nebulous future. The cost of a new stadium is estimated at $4.6 million ...
