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.

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 hisinterpretation of State Code.

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.
