• We're glad to see that the Camden Police Department and Rep. Laurie Slade Funderburk are both taking part in trying to get alcohol energy drinks outlawed in South Carolina. The beverages, which come in large cans, have high alcohol content along with a significant amount of caffeine, which can be a deadly combination, especially for young drinkers who have had little experience with alcohol. The dangers of these drinks are widely known, and Funderburk is one of several legislators who introduced a bill in the General Assembly. It is now wending its way through the legislative process.

Pine Creek met several standards to receive the honor, including enlisting an urban interface specialist with the S.C. Forestry Commission to complete a community assessment; sponsoring a local Firewise Task Force Committee; and submitting an annual report to Firewise Communities that documents continuing compliance with the program. Pine Creek is just the ninth community in the state to be recognized. "It is not a quick or easy process," said Michael ...

Honoring our friend, the soldier

My husband and I, along with several Camden friends, recently attempted to throw a send-off party for another close friend also from Camden. In fact, we are all the best of friends, embracing spouse and children as well. As we discussed our options, I was compelled to do a little research as to the appropriate manner in which to carry out such a task; the arduous charge of how to recognize a friend leaving for war. Do we call it a party; do we send an invitation; if so, what should the invitation say; do we make toasts or save ...

• The news that the city of Camden plans to install an elevator at Camden City Hall is quite welcome. It is especially so to the city's disabled citizens who have found it difficult to come to court or attend Camden City Council meetings, both of which take place on the second floor. Many years ago, the city installed a chair-lift system attached to a railing of the building's main stairwell. It hasn't always worked and some people find its appearance a bit daunting. Installing the elevator -- which will also allow employees and visitors to reach offices and ...
