CHS students design scarecrows for class

More than 700 students participated in the Scarecrow Project at Camden High School (CHS) as part of Team Read Week. The 33 classes that participated created almost 40 scarecrows that are now on display in the Camden High School Library. Each scarecrow had to be designed by using certain elements that students learned in particular classes. Meredith Kirkland's integrated business application class posed with their robot scarecrow, "Ram." The scarecrows will be on display until Thanksgiving.

After the vote: more sanity, please

You might think that Comedy Central stars Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert, founding fathers of "fake news" and "truthiness," chose a controversy-free theme in staging their "Rally to Restore Sanity and/or Fear" on the Washington Mall. After all, who could be opposed to sanity?

Noted and passed

• The political correctness police force is active in San Francisco, where an ordinance has been passed decreeing that McDonald's Happy Meals can't contain a toy unless the meal meets certain nutritional standards laid down by that city's authorities. We aren't sure what the city plans to ban next, but such actions are political correctness run amok.

Nosy neighbors cause tension

Dear Annie: My neighbors are kind, caring and amazingly nosy. I recently began working from home in order to take care of my partner. I'm grateful that my company allows me to do this. But these well-intentioned neighbors just won't believe I am employed. They insist that since I am at home all day, I am simply too proud to admit I lost my job. Every time we meet, they ask, "So, you still looking for work?"

The work ahead

Unlike 1994, when a Republican landslide was somewhat of a surprise, Tuesday's GOP tsunami had been widely predicted by pollsters, nearly all of whom had detected a wave of discontent among voters weary of partisanship and a stagnant economy. Kershaw County voters reacted as did their counterparts across the country, helping to toss out longtime 5th District Congressman John Spratt. Camden's Vincent Sheheen was one of the few Democrats to fare well here, along with county officials Harriett Pierce and Robin Watkins.

Stepmother struggles with relationships after husband passes

Dear Annie: I've known my 26-year-old stepdaughter, "Monica," since she was 5. She never spent much time with her father, but when the first grandchild was born, she came by more often because she wanted a babysitter. Her dad and I were together 21 years before he passed away six months ago.
