Wagging the Dog

A few months ago, I was talking with a mother of a private school student, and I asked her if she minded telling me why she chose a private school for her child. I've asked this question to numerous private school parents over the years, and I always learn something. But the answer I got in this case was one that I hadn't heard before. This mother said, "I don't want my child to be a test score." She went on to tell me that in her opinion, standardized testing in public schools had become more important ...

Hartis retires

Kershaw County Magistrate Judge Eugene "Gene" Hartis (center) celebrates his retirement Thursday with his family at the Kershaw County Courthouse. Hartis retired Thursday after working at the courthouse for 30 years, 28 as a magistrate judge. Original from North Carolina, Hartis attended Bethune area schools.

Ariail for Dec. 16, 2013

December 16, 2013 | | Ariail


Noted and passed - Dec. 16, 2013

• The Chronicle-Independent offers a tip of its hat to Rigdon Boykin, Ann Bass and everyone at Kimbrell's Furniture on completing renovations to its Camden store. The $350,000 spent on the project isn't just an investment in the store, but an investment in downtown Camden. Camden Mayor Tony Scully called it a "transformational vision, showing us what's possible." We agree, hoping not only that other property owners will upgrade their buildings, but that Kimbrell's lead will entice new businesses and developers to invest in Camden as well.
