Editorial: More festivals

We would like to offer our great appreciation and hearty congratulations to all who made the second annual Irish Festival happen. Aside from the normal hiccups involved in such a monumental organizational project, the event seems to not only have run very smoothly, but attracted quite a crowd. It is gratifying to see such a fun-filled event take off and we are sure the coming years will bring more of the luck of the Irish to Camden.

Editorial: Safe schools

In the wake of the horrific and tragic Parkland, Florida school shooting, it is only natural for everyone to be concerned, even frightened, for our children. Indeed, citizens -- including groups of parents of school children -- in this county are already networking in the community and advocating before government bodies such as the Kershaw County Board of School Trustees and Kershaw County Council.

Kershaw County Council recently heard a report regarding an area of the county known as the Black River Road Corridor.

Because the area has experienced significant residential and commercial growth, it has also experienced a spike in traffic related issues, including vehicle accidents. So, council, in conjunction with the city of Camden, commissioned a study of the area. A story on the results of that study is on today's front page.
