Trying to measure up

From the time a person is born to the time he dies, he is attempting to measure up or satisfy someone else's whims. For example, as a child he attempts to please his parents or his friends. Later, the spectrum of those he must please expands to all in his social strata, work place, and home. The chore of measuring up never ceases.

Veto session marks end of long budget process

The General Assembly met last week to consider Governor Haley's budget vetoes. Having originally decided to meet in September, the Legislature changed its plans because two of the budget vetoes wiped out two state agencies and other vetoes created uncertainties that needed to be resolved quickly, like funding of teacher pay raises before the start of the school year.

Noted and passed - July 23, 2012

• In the wake of the Colorado movie theater incident last week that killed or wounded more than 60 people, we mused once again on just how common mass murders have become. Our memory fades to 1966 when a drifter named Richard Speck broke into a Chicago apartment and killed eight student nurses. It shocked the world. Nowadays, unfortunately, such incidents make headlines one day and are forgotten the next because they occur so often. It's a sad sign of the times, we suppose.

In 2008, a group of graduate students from the University of South Carolina's Public History Program produced a study entitled, "The Camden African-American Heritage Project." It was the product of a student group assignment conducted in 2005-06. The students were assisted by many Camden residents in their search for the history of African-Americans in Camden from the Colonial period through the era of civil rights. Though able to spend only one semester researching and writing, the students pulled together an admirable overview of the lives of African-Americans here.
