SBA provides many services

The chamber board recently hosted Savannah Wilburn, economic development specialist from the Columbia office of the Small Business Administration (SBA). She gave an overview of the organization's programs and services. Specifically, she covered highlights about the SBA's loan programs, federal contracting, and education opportunities.

Beauty and the dogs

Camdenite Stephanie Keel thinks every face has a story to tell -- and she should know. Stephanie is a modeling and talent developer. She scouts, trains and places the potential "next face" in larger markets that will allow opportunities for being discovered. She's also a connoisseur of canine faces. Her heart for dogs beats strongly. So, it's no surprise that sometimes she sees the face of a dog on social media or in person and just knows that they're the one.

That for which I’m thankful

(Due to our Thanksgiving deadlines, today's column was actually written Wednesday. The online version has been modified to reflect that, unfortunately, some plans -- even on Thanksgiving -- go awry.)

The memory of smell

It was after a speaking engagement in Chattanooga when I was signing books that an arm slipped over my shoulders from the back and a woman leaned forward to press her cheek against mine.

Thanksgiving 2017

Last year marked the 25th anniversary that I have hosted Thanksgiving for family and friends. And, it's a really big deal for me.

My Brain on NASCAR - Nov. 21, 2017

Well, it's finally here; the last race of the 2017 NASCAR Cup Series season. Every year I complain about the length of the season, and then every year I'm sad to see it end. When that checkered flag waves at Homestead-Miami Speedway on Nov. 19, Jimmie Johnson's championship reign will end -- temporarily -- and he will be replaced by either one of three former champions, or one shiny new one.

The future is now!

I'm pretty darned proud of what our school district is able to accomplish with the resources available to us. While our funding is somewhere in the bottom third of the state, our results are generally in the top third or better. I am especially gratified by this given the huge financial hit our district took during the economic downturn, a hit from which we haven't completely recovered. We have been able to continue to perform academically because we do everything possible to focus our resources on schools and classrooms by operating "lean and mean" wherever else we can.

The Price House

The Archives and Museum recently applied for a South Carolina state historical marker for the Price House. Administered by the S.C. Department of Archives and History, the marker program dates back to 1936. Over the years, more than 1,500 markers have been placed at various sites throughout the state, designating important places in our history and making it easy for the public to learn about the past. Mayor Alfred Mae Drakeford decided, shortly after taking office, that the Price House needed to publicly take its place in the history of Camden, and particularly in the African-American community. So ...

It’s a crock

Paint me insane, but if I was stranded on a deserted island, I believe the one thing I would want -- besides a couple of beers, of course -- is a great big ol' crock of soup boiling merrily away atop my signal fire. I can even smell the ingredients – fresh seafood, probably whatever creatures I could catch in the shallows, possibly flavored with a little hint of wild sage or lemongrass.
