Noted and passed - March 31, 2014

Along with all-time high test scores, judges lauded CHS for donating more than $100,000 and 5,000 service hours to various charities during the past five years. That's a great example of a school truly being a part of its community ...

Frosts and Freezes not over, oh my!

To say these past few months have been cold is an understatement and while my northern roots have relished getting my wool sweaters out of the cedar chest, our trees and other plants have not had the ability to bundle up for warmth. No matter how you slice it, our woody friends have been exposed to dramatically cold temperatures this winter and even though spring is officially here, we have yet to see how Mother Nature's wintery touch has affected (or may still affect) all things green.

Thanks from Historic Camden

The governing board of Historic Camden Revolutionary War Site would like to express its sincerest appreciation to Mayor Tony Scully and the members of Camden City Council for approving recommended changes to a much needed sewer project that crosses portions of our historic site.

Gullible and guilty

Those of us who jump for joy when we hear that Governor Haley is deeply concerned about education and is planning to dedicate $160 million in new spending for education might consider, as we bow heads in hope and tenuous gratitude, that such concern on her part is coming awfully late but just in time for her possible re-election. Better late than never? Perhaps! But better earlier, for sure. The S.C. education budget has been reduced for the last three years by more than the proposed budget raises -- $110 million in her first year and $140 million stimulus money ...
