Jeff Bunton of Kershaw and Camden's Ina Price each missed the same number of games and had the same total for the tie-breaker and were co-winners of last week's Chronicle-Independent football contest.
After a slow start --- literally and figuratively --- in the Buford Preseason Invitational, the North Central High boys' basketball team finished with a flurry.
Lugoff-Elgin High School's TV production class set the stage for its Thanksgiving show with a feast prepared by the students. Students enjoyed turkey, dressing and pumpkin pie and set the table with place cards. The traditional scene of friends gathered around a bountiful table created the backdrop for L-ETV's Thanksgiving week newscasts. Students involved in the filming are Thomas Barrett, Rachel Zigila, Tessa Blevins, Zach Hellman, Chris Gibson, Ryan Hinson, Case Horton, Brandon Rose, Dustin Hill, Jarkese Rodriguez and Steven Fogle. Derek Berry teaches the class.
As Chair of the local Let's Move Cities & Towns, the White House initiative targeting our national epidemic of childhood obesity, I have tried to educate myself about how to best serve the well being of the next generation. To this end, Let's Move, partnering with KershawHealth and Eat Smart Move More, with Councilwoman Alfred Mae Drakeford as our presiding muse, recently held the first Mini Olympics of Kershaw County at Camden's Doby Complex; we plan a student garden for the spring, and other programs not yet announced.

I appreciate this opportunity to inform the thousands of Camdenites who are interested in the progress with the referendum, what occurred at the Council meeting Tuesday morning. As expected, the plan for the Camden Sports Complex was the grandiose reveal on the agenda. But another great surprise came in a revelation from Mr. Cushman (city attorney) advising Mayor Graham and Council Members that the initiative petition calling for a referendum had not been presented according to State Code. Well, I should say his interpretation of State Code.
Final registration for the youth basketball program will be accepted at the Kershaw County Recreation Department.

Of all the nauseating things about the Super Committee's inability to reach a deficit-cutting deal, perhaps the worst is that the leaders of both parties have apparently spent months anticipating such an impasse and trying to lay groundwork to use the committee's failure to advance their own causes in the 2012 election. It proves once more -- how many times does this make? -- that most of the elected officials in Washington are interested not in advancing common-sense proposals but in trying to get re-elected and trying to make sure their own party dominates.
Camden's "horse history" in a nutshell.
To those of you who don't know me, I am an Internal Medicine physician who has practiced at the hospital here in Camden for the past four years. I am the mother of three young children, and I live here in downtown Camden. I have followed the debate about the YMCA closely, and for many reasons, I support this project because I care about my patients, my family, and our community.
During this holiday season, I'm thankful for:
Things started on an ominous note for the Lugoff-Elgin baseball team on Thursday and they would not get better that evening.
Recently, I attended the Congress on Healthcare Leadership presented by the American College of Healthcare Executives, and I was most impressed by one presentation: Building the New Healthcare Delivery System. In particular, I was struck by the fact that healthcare executives from across the country were focused almost exclusively on this new world of healthcare and its impact on how the organizations they lead are designed.
She was not a pretty woman in the days of her youth. Her lips were too thin, her forehead too high and her eyes so round that they seemed to bulge into the lens of the glasses she wore.
The road diet -- what a mistake. Even the mayor admits it could be a mistake. When the mayor was running for office he led me to believe that he was against the Broad Street diet. Two years later, he has flipped his opinion about the diet project. The mayor's vote, along with two of the previous council members, is what placed this mistake in motion. The urgency for the vote was to apply for a grant. A grant is federal tax dollars and not free money as some believe. This type of attitude is one of the reasons our ...
