Sometimes, however, as in the current city council race, that previous experience is the very thing that voters should remember as creating one of the most contentious, unpleasant four years in Camden's recent memory.

It was a delight to see the conceptual drawing for the refurbishment of Rhame Arena. What a classic design and what a great design for a "gateway to the city."

On Nov. 4th, we will fill two seats on Camden City Council. We have an outstanding candidate in Bob Williams. He is dedicated to helping Camden grow and move forward in a positive way. Bob was born and raised in Camden, and attended and graduated from our public schools. He owns and operates a local business and understands the needs of the small business and property owners. He would never exploit the office for personal gain.

(The following correction ran in the Chronicle-Independent on July 25, 2012: "Camden City Council candidate Peggy Ogburn was misidentified as a former Departmenet of PublicWorks director. Mrs. Ogburn chaired the Clemson Extension Community Development Committee. As such she opened the city's first recycling center in 1990 along with those serving as the county's Clemson Extension agtent and former city public works director. The C-I apologies for any confusion." The online version now reflects an accurate record of Mrs. Ogburn's service.)

Great things are accomplished one task at a time by one American Legion Auxiliary member at a time: one offer of help to the wife of a deployed serviceman; one volunteer assisting with a community blood drive; one friendly invitation to another woman to join the Auxiliary. The efforts of our members add up to millions of hours and millions of dollars annually in service of the Auxiliary's mission. Those members whose extraordinary dedication energizes their units -- and thereby the organization as a whole -- are honored with the Unit Member of the Year Award.
