• We're glad to see that the Camden Police Department and Rep. Laurie Slade Funderburk are both taking part in trying to get alcohol energy drinks outlawed in South Carolina. The beverages, which come in large cans, have high alcohol content along with a significant amount of caffeine, which can be a deadly combination, especially for young drinkers who have had little experience with alcohol. The dangers of these drinks are widely known, and Funderburk is one of several legislators who introduced a bill in the General Assembly. It is now wending its way through the legislative process.

Firewise

Residents are proud of their Pine Creek neighborhood in Camden, which was recognized by Firewise Communities/USA, part of the National Firewise Communities program, for its fire hazard awareness. Pine Creek met several standards to receive the honor, including enlisting an urban interface specialist with the S.C. Forestry Commission to complete a community assessment; sponsoring a local Firewise Task Force Committee; and submitting an annual report to Firewise Communities that documents continuing compliance with the program. Pine Creek is just the ninth community in the state to be recognized. "It is not a quick or easy process," said Michael ...

Honoring our friend, the soldier

My husband and I, along with several Camden friends, recently attempted to throw a send-off party for another close friend also from Camden. In fact, we are all the best of friends, embracing spouse and children as well. As we discussed our options, I was compelled to do a little research as to the appropriate manner in which to carry out such a task; the arduous charge of how to recognize a friend leaving for war. Do we call it a party; do we send an invitation; if so, what should the invitation say; do we make toasts or save ...

• Congratulations to everyone who participated in the Fine Arts Center's (FAC) "Dancing With the Stars" event. We think we can place it firmly in the "fun(d)raising" category, in that it not only raises money for the FAC, but raises the fun quotient with folks getting to see some of Kershaw County's notable residents doing their best to shimmy and shake or tango across the stage. Extra congratulations to Tyke Redfearn and Ginny Marshall for winning the technical award for best dance routine, and to Eric Boland and Amanda Smith for earning the People's Choice Award ...

Reader: Zemp answer raises questions

The Kershaw County School Board response in Monday's Chronicle-Independent to Scott Jordan's statement on Zemp Stadium is nothing if not informative. If you haven't been paying attention, the school district has proposed a facilities referendum for the November election which would, among other things, abandon Zemp Stadium while spending millions of additional taxpayer dollars on a new stadium on Ehrenclou Drive.

Back when you and your spouse were dating, things were exciting. You couldn't wait to see each other and you got butterflies whenever you'd think of getting together. But over the years, things changed. You still love each other, but that spark isn't as strong now. It'd be nice to have that spark again, but you just don't know what happened.
