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.

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.

Pedophiles and polar bears, oh my!

Charlie, the patriot

It was on the eve of our national election that I ran upstairs to file a couple of things in my office. As I started to leave, a large storage box caught my eye. I had not noticed it before. I opened it and discovered that Charlie Tinker was wanting to talk again.

"The arts are essential to any complete national life. The State owes it to itself to sustain and encourage them….Ill fares the race which fails to salute the arts with the reverence and delight which are their due." - Winston Churchill, 1938
