The road diet

Council and staff have as their primary goal economic development. We want greater prosperity for the business community. We are intent on creating jobs. We are developing a plan to market Camden to travelers from around the nation, who will find it one of the most appealing towns in the Southeast.

Why fake is sometimes OK

When it comes to tanning, fake is OK with me. Wait, let me clarify, fake in the sense of spray tan or self-tanners, not tanning bed fake. I think one realization I've come to over the years is that skin care is absolutely essential as I grow older. This includes moisturizing daily and always wearing sunscreen.

You may not know the name, but we in South Carolina need to listen to Larry Page. He is a very bright and very rich young man.

Fifty minus one and counting

In 362 days, I will be 50 years old. That means I am already three days into my 50th year of life. In other words, Friday was my 49th birthday.

Merging and purging

For years, I blamed it on those richly royal blue suede high heel pumps. The ones with the ridiculously tall, spiked heel and absurdly pointed toe. I was 22 when I bought them, 36 when I donated them to the Salvation Army.

Let’s fill up ‘The Cup’

Frosts and Freezes not over, oh my!

To say these past few months have been cold is an understatement and while my northern roots have relished getting my wool sweaters out of the cedar chest, our trees and other plants have not had the ability to bundle up for warmth. No matter how you slice it, our woody friends have been exposed to dramatically cold temperatures this winter and even though spring is officially here, we have yet to see how Mother Nature's wintery touch has affected (or may still affect) all things green.

Basketball prowess

When I listened to the news yesterday, I heard that a school resource officer (and part-time policeman) was in trouble for a problem concerning a basketball and lack of respect from a student. While I do now know what happened -- just that, according to the news, the gentlemen shoved a 14-year-old male. I also had a problem concerning these two, except my male student was older. I did not receive coverage in the newspaper or the television. Here is what happened.

A map never hurt anyone

In this changing world, I occasionally find myself looking for the things that last. What I mean is, basically everything from the way we do business to entertainment to communication has been revolutionized over the past 20 to 30 years with the advent of computers and the Internet. Computers are awesome, but there are times you just need a person rather than a machine to help you out.

Finland: the best schools in the world

We hear lots of talk, especially around election time, about improving schools in South Carolina. What we don't hear much about is what a truly world class school would look like, or how we would go about creating such a thing.
