Ariail for July 5, 2016

Editorial: Green opportunities

The city of Camden has been doing quite a bit of work to boost tourism and generate more economic development. The Wayfinding Sign project is well underway and is really making the town look good. Thanks in large part to such incentives as the façade grant program, many buildings downtown are looking sharp. And thanks in large part to an economic development incentive ordinance passed in December 2015, a new 64 room hotel is coming to the I-20/Exit 98 area.

Editorial: Fireworks and more

Once a year, on July 4th, we could easily rename Lake Wateree as Lake Fireworks. That's because, each year, the Lake Wateree Association (LWA) puts on a fantastic fireworks show on the lake everyone can enjoy.

Scully: The Rosies

Several weeks ago, we planted a pink dogwood in Monument Square to honor the women who worked in the defense industry during World War II. Among others, Brenda and Joe Sullivan attended the ceremony, because, as Joe said, his grandmother worked in the torpedo plant in Newport, Rhode Island during the War. Many Rosies from the Midlands, as well as women who served in the War, are long gone. I include my remarks from that ceremony.

My Brain on NASCAR - July 1, 2016
