The skinny on the Common Core Standards

When I'm traveling between schools, I alternate listening to sports talk radio, political talk radio and Motown CDs (showing my age, I guess).

Noted and passed - Oct. 21, 2013

• During her years in Camden, Karen Eckford has taken on numerous civic responsibilities, donating countless hours to various causes.

The hospital is at a critical juncture and the next couple of years will go far in determining whether it remains independent or is taken over by a larger institution. We wish her well in her duties.

Cell phone towers

Members of the Lake Wateree Association, voicing the sentiments of many lake residents as well as people who live in other rural areas of the county, say more cell phone towers are needed to improve communication. The association urged people to attend a Monday night meeting of the county's planning and zoning commission to make their voices heard and they're also asking citizens to show up at the next county council meeting.
