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.
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.

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."

• We're sad to learn of Joseph Bruce's pending retirement from KershawHealth and the KershawHealth Foundation (see our front page), but happy for him as he reaches that point in life where he can choose do what he appears to enjoy: namely traveling to the United Kingdom and other points abroad. Bruce had the difficult job of following foundation founder Vern Ketchem, who died just months before Bruce joined KershawHealth in late 2007. When we consider all the foundation has done since then, we believe Ketchem would be proud of Bruce's work. He and the foundation board launched ...
