Master potter John Bartlam made America’s first porcelain

In 1972, Dr. George Terry travelled to Cainhoy, on the Wando River near Charleston, on a hunch. For years he had been researching a potter named John Bartlam who came to America from Staffordshire, England, in 1763, seeking a profitable trade in American made ceramics. Terry knew Bartlam located a kiln and pottery works somewhere near Cainhoy and he wanted to find it. Just west of the road to the boat dock at St. Thomas' Point he hit the jackpot -- there were sherds of creamware and other types of ceramics in an area where a bulldozer had scraped the surface ...

Thank a cop

At Tuesday's Kershaw County Council meeting, Camden's Bob Clithero -- an Air Force veteran from the Korea and Vietnam wars -- urged the public to thank members of law enforcement and first responders. Clithero said he remembered feeling safe at his posts during his military career because of military police (MPs), but had never properly thanked them for their service.

Editorial: Wise words

Even here in Kershaw County we wonder: what do we do and what do we say about what happened in Dallas, Texas, last week? And it's not just about Dallas, but about Baton Rouge, La., and Falcon Heights, Minn., as well.

Editorial: Revolving door

We are as tired as Kershaw County Sheriff Jim Matthews of the revolving door in our prisons and county jails. Take the case of Richard Herman Roach III, which we report on today's front page.

Editorial: Green opportunities

The city of Camden has been doing quite a bit of work to boost tourism and generate more economic development. The Wayfinding Sign project is well underway and is really making the town look good. Thanks in large part to such incentives as the façade grant program, many buildings downtown are looking sharp. And thanks in large part to an economic development incentive ordinance passed in December 2015, a new 64 room hotel is coming to the I-20/Exit 98 area.

Editorial: Fireworks and more

Once a year, on July 4th, we could easily rename Lake Wateree as Lake Fireworks. That's because, each year, the Lake Wateree Association (LWA) puts on a fantastic fireworks show on the lake everyone can enjoy.

Tatum: Fear and loathing in the U.S. of A.

"Paranoia strike deep, into your life it will creep, it starts when you're always afraid, step out of line the man will come and take you away…"

Editorial: A lack of will

Elsewhere on our website, Editor Martin L. Cahn laments the lack of compromise on gun control on the national level. In similar fashion, we are disappointed with the S.C. General Assembly for not finding a way through to regulate the release of police dash cam video and, even more important, revise the S.C. Freedom of Information Act (FOIA).

Editorial: The Emmanuel Nine

A year ago, the grief was still fresh. We were all still reeling from the murders of nine innocent people at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston, one of the oldest African-American congregations in the U.S. We wrote then -- and still believe now -- "Charleston has shown the rest of the country how to transcend such grief in a non-violent, some would even say, loving way."
