For protests, simplicity matters

After spending an afternoon with Occupy DC, the District of Columbia's branch of the Occupy Wall Street movement, I now understand why they avoid formal leaders. For one thing, when things go wrong, it's easier to spread the blame around. That's something the young radicals have in common with the folks on Wall Street and in Washington.

It's definitely time to talk about Phase II

In 2007, just as I was arriving in Kershaw County, the school district began work on Phase I of the Facilities Equalization Program. Phase I was envisioned to encompass eight construction and renovation projects at a cost of $102 million, which was generated through Installment Purchase Plan bonds. Through a combination of excellent management and a favorable construction market, the $102 million has been stretched to complete several more projects beyond the original scope. The additional projects included a new Jackson Elementary School (also the first LEED-certified Gold School in South Carolina), an addition and media center renovation at Blaney ...

Noted and passed

• We're glad to see that the U.S. Marine Corps has lifted its ban on bracelets which honor U.S. troops killed in combat. Top officials announced last week that Marines in uniform are now authorized to wear killed-in-action bracelets recognizing friends who have died in combat or from battlefield wounds. The change was made after an uproar from Marines when top officers recently began enforcing a ban on the bracelets. Marine brass widely decided the former rule was an outdated one and changed it.

Back to basics

If you suddenly lost electric and gas power, could you cook? A group that gathered at the Camden Archives and Museum recently for an open fire cooking demo could. A demonstration led by Katherine Richardson, newest staff member at the archives, netted roasted chicken, venison burgers, steamed root vegetables, corn fritters and an apple pie by the hands of Deborah Watts and Mel Welch. The visiting, open fire chefs from the Sumter County Museum delighted the gathered crowd of more than 50 spectators with their clothing, preparation and tastings. School children made butter in an old-fashioned crock churn. They made ...

Football brawl

What should have been a celebration of a sturdy football win by Camden High School (CHS) turned into an ugly incident Friday night at Zemp Stadium when a brawl occurred as players went through the handshake line following the game. The incident led to a significant amount of publicity across the state, causing a black eye to CHS and the city itself. While various investigations of the fight continue, including scrutiny by the Camden Police Department for possible criminal conduct, it appears the brawl was triggered by Dreher players.
