It's definitely time to talk about Phase II

In 2007, just as I was arriving in Kershaw County, the school district began work on Phase I of the Facilities Equalization Program. Phase I was envisioned to encompass eight construction and renovation projects at a cost of $102 million, which was generated through Installment Purchase Plan bonds. Through a combination of excellent management and a favorable construction market, the $102 million has been stretched to complete several more projects beyond the original scope.

Noted and passed

• We're glad to see that the U.S. Marine Corps has lifted its ban on bracelets which honor U.S. troops killed in combat.

Back to basics

If you suddenly lost electric and gas power, could you cook? A group that gathered at the Camden Archives and Museum recently for an open fire cooking demo could. A demonstration led by Katherine Richardson, newest staff member at the archives, netted roasted chicken, venison burgers, steamed root vegetables, corn fritters and an apple pie by the hands of Deborah Watts and Mel Welch. The visiting, open fire chefs from the Sumter County Museum delighted the gathered crowd of more than 50 spectators with their clothing, preparation and tastings. School children made butter in an old-fashioned crock churn. They made ...
