• Congratulations to Camden High School (CHS) for becoming a 2014 Palmetto's Finest award winner Thursday. The jubilation in CHS' library was well-earned and an especially proud moment for Principal Dan Matthews. This is the second time Matthews has served as principal of a Kershaw County school earning the award, when he was at Lugoff-Elgin Middle School. 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 ...

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.
