These girls worked hard over the summer making and painting birdhouses, wind chimes, and a bird bath for the residents of Springdale Nursing Home.

Colonial Christmas at Historic Camden

It's unlikely that today's kids will be asking Santa for a "bird on Bellows, Prussian Dragoon, Tunbridge Tea Sett, or neatly dress'd Wax Baby." That's what Jackie and Patsey Custis received as Christmas gifts from their new stepfather, George Washington, in 1759. Not from under the Christmas tree, mind you. Christmas trees and Santa Claus weren't introduced until the 19th century!

Ariail for March 23, 2015

March 23, 2015 | | Ariail


Noted and passed - March 23, 2015

• Friday, we reported a grand jury finally indicted 22-year-old Stephen Ross Kelly for his alleged kidnapping, sexual assault and murder of Briana Rabon. We say "finally indicted" because Briana was killed more than a year ago. While we cannot be certain -- grand jury proceedings are secret, and for good reason -- we suspect the indictments were handed down now because the S.C. State Law Enforcement Division (SLED) only recently completed its forensic examination of evidence it and the Kershaw County Sheriff's Office collected. Briana, by all accounts, was a bright young lady who, at 18, had her entire life ...
