Good journalism is real

Fake news. It's a phrase that became the most memorable takeaway from Election 2016 and the political hangover that still resonates today. It should come as no surprise that Oxford Dictionaries proclaimed the 2016 word of the year to be "post-truth," an appropriate adjective for an era in which some news consumers are less concerned with whether or not something is true than they are with how it makes them feel.

Henry P. Kendall, collector

Along Camden's eastern border flows Little Pine Tree Creek. A textile mill and lake named Wateree had been located on that creek since 1899. In 1916, Henry P. Kendall, an industrialist from Massachusetts, purchased this mill and thereafter it became known as the Kendall Mill and lake. He purchased a home in Camden called the Sycamores in 1924 and lived there for 35 years until his death in 1959.

Moment of Nature - Sept. 29, 2017

Growing up in New York state, leaf-raking was an annual event and right-of-passage, almost as important as learning how to ride a bicycle. As kids, we made the best of it, raking the leaves into huge piles and then running and jumping onto them, much to my father's disapproval. I don't remember what my dad did with the leaves after we raked, but I can tell you what he should have done and what all of us should be doing with them: using them for mulch.

Exciting school year ahead for CMA

School is back in session and this is my favorite time of the year! There is so much activity and excitement on Camden Military Academy's (CMA) campus after a long, hot summer. Not only are we welcoming new cadets to Camden, but we are following up with some of our recent alumni regarding their early successes in their respective universities and colleges. All cadets, new and returning, have a very challenging first few weeks. Along with academics, CMA's staff focuses on instilling the core values of integrity, organization, teamwork, self-discipline, structure as well as humility.
