Historic Camden’s Did you Know?

While Ben Franklin was key to the crafting of the Declaration of Independence, the other Founding Fathers did not want him to be the main author - as they felt they couldn't trust him not to put a joke in it!

The great, big and wonderful approval of going independent actually occurred on July 2 -- a day which John Adams thought would forever after be celebrated by the newly formed nation. "The Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha in the History of America." He was right about the way we honor it though: "It ought ...

Big noses, big hearts

Karl and Kay Allen of Black River Rescue, and Lucy, part of their four-legged family and co-workers, present a special children's program at the Kershaw County Library. The program included information on their dogs' special talents and what the Allens and their dogs do. The Allens taught the children to "hug a tree" if they ever happen to become lost in the woods because body scents populate and remain trapped under limbs and branches, which can help bloodhounds find and rescue them. Bloodhounds not only have super-sensitive noses -- more than 4 million scent cells -- they also have floppy ears ...
