Rec complex a boost for our children and community

I want the City of Camden to build a recreational facility which can improve not only our fiscal health but also our physical health. 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.

Feature photo: Another time, another place

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 ...

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.

Poorest in many Third World countries send kids to private school

When the Pakistani Taliban survivor Malala Yousafzai won the Nobel Peace Prize this month, it was widely noted that she was an education advocate and that her father was a "headmaster."

Noted and passed - Oct. 20, 2014

• Thanks to I-20, two U.S. highways and several state highways, we have a lot of commercial vehicles passing through Kershaw County on a daily basis. While most of those vehicles are likely carrying goods for sale here and elsewhere across the country, there's also a good chance hazardous materials are being trucked through as well. So, it's a good thing Lugoff Fire-Rescue (LF-R) and the Kershaw County Fire Service have joined forces to create a Special Operations Team (SOT) to deal with any "HazMat" accidents that may occur. According to LF-R Battalion Chief Chris Spitzer, the team ...

Soft skills

In early September, I attended a meeting of superintendents in Greenville. A major area of discussion was the development of a workforce that would attract sustainable industry to South Carolina and how K-12 education fits into this puzzle. To underscore this discussion, the meeting included a tour of the BMW plant in Spartanburg. Wow! This facility absolutely reflects what a 21st century workplace looks like and what many of our students will need to be prepared to enter. I talk a lot about preparing students for their future and not our past. The BMW tour reminded me why this is ...
