Another great year!

Every year in May, a community member named Bob Watkins invites me to speak to the Golden Club, a really fun group of local retirees that meets for breakfast once a week. Generally, I use this opportunity to talk about the accomplishments of school year. I thought I'd share some of the same highlights in this month's column. It's been another great year! Our students and our staff continue to achieve at an impressive level. Following are just a few examples:

Pet talk - July 18, 2012

It's 5:30 p.m. and you just got home from work when there is a knock at the door. It is a police officer explaining that you have 15 minutes to evacuate your family and pets from your home as a train carrying toxic chemicals derailed close to your property. What could you grab in your house in 15 minutes that is necessary for your family and pet's livelihood?

Straight shooter

In his own words, Camden Police Department (CPD) Detective James Heming describes his recent win in the Open Class Revolver Championship at the South Carolina Police Combat League's Palmetto State Classic Pistol Competition as, "Truly a highlight in my career -- with years of shooting competition under my belt it is amazing to me that I was able to come out on top of 68 other competitors in the main event revolver match, and then to be able to win first place in the Two-Man Team competition with teammate Earl Berry was more than exciting, to say the least."

Noted and passed - June 18, 2012

• Federal officials made the right call last week in choosing not to attempt to re-prosecute former Sen. John Edwards, whose recent trail for campaign finance fraud ended with a hung jury on most counts. The case was terribly complicated, and many legal experts predicted from the outset that a conviction would be difficult. The decision not to re-try Edwards doesn't mean he's innocent; it just means Uncle Sam recognizes he probably couldn't be convicted.

District 7 mess

Humorist Will Rogers once said he didn't belong to an organized political party; he was a Democrat. That appears particularly true now that the S. C. Democratic Party's primary for the new seventh Congressional District seat is mired in controversy over whether or not the votes for a candidate who had withdrawn should be counted. Complicating the situation is that the fate of the favored son of the party's hierarchy hangs in the balance as officials – and, later, probably lawyers – try to unravel the mess.

City of Camden in great financial shape

Financially, the city of Camden is in great shape. Stockpiling citizen tax revenue is neither good for the citizen paying the tax or for the city not investing accordingly. Financial stability is not about how much the city collects, but about how well the monies are used. Without increasing your property taxes, the city has made significant progress by assessing requirements and strategically planning without taxing and spending.
