Since our two teenagers play "club" sports, we have been to tournaments in Aiken, Columbia, Easley, Mauldin, Rock Hill, Summerville, and Sumter. We have admired top-notch gymnasiums, beautiful fields with lights, and indoor walking tracks. Camden could have these, too.
Life during Colonial times was a far cry from today's world of comforts and technology. Re-enactors at Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site's 41st annual Revolutionary War Field Days gave youngsters -- who included Boy Scouts from the Indian Waters Council Camporee at North Camden Plantation -- a glimpse into those days gone by. In addition to watching battle re-enactments on the field in front of the Kershaw House, visitors viewed craftsmen demonstrating Colonial methods of making wooden buckets, spoons and bowls, tanning skins into leather, crafting pewter ware and forging iron tools. Demonstrations of soap-making, weaving and cooking were also ...
Mary Clark, Hospital Auxiliary of Kershaw County Board chair, began her telephone call with Joseph Bruce, KershawHealth Foundation executive director, by saying, "Well, your campaign is over." She was referring to the foundation's campaign to fund a new fetal monitoring system for the KershawHealth Women's Center. Earlier in the day, Bruce had made a presentation to the auxiliary board about the project, noting that the foundation was within $25,000 of reaching its $190,000 goal. Clark's telephone call was to let the foundation know the auxiliary would be making a $25,000 contribution.

For the past couple of years, our district has designated one book for summer reading for secondary students. I've really liked this approach. It has generated a lot of enthusiasm and gotten entire families involved. This year's book, This I Believe II, is a collection of personal essays by a very diverse group of people, ranging from legendary cellist Yo-Yo Ma to author Studs Terkel. The book got me to thinking; if I was to write an essay about what I believe about education, what would I say?

• Here in Kershaw County, we don't think about bridges much, unless it's the spans crossing the Lynches and Wateree rivers on U.S. 1, I-20 and other roads. Many bridges in our county are small, made of wood or pipes used as culverts. They cross streams and branches of creeks and -- according to our recent two-part story -- not in the greatest shape.

All but two currently open bridges that cross bodies of ...
