Revitalizing Camden

This afternoon and this evening Camden City Council will be discussing bringing another project dream to reality: a tennis complex to be located on property at the corner of Campbell and York Streets, the current site of the tennis courts used by Camden High School. The idea is to have a regional complex that can attract tournaments and events to Camden, bringing in visitors and ultimately more tourism dollars.

Notes from around the county

Today readers will probably notice a story about a new program started at Lugoff-Elgin High School. Basically, it involves upperclassmen taking on the responsibility of being mentors to incoming freshmen. How it works is that upperclassmen – mostly seniors – are assigned a group of 10-12 freshman who they will help navigate for them the new and uncharted waters of high school. The mentors will actually meet with their freshman charges regularly as well as be available for one-on-one help virtually anytime. The idea is to provide another avenue of inclusiveness for the freshmen, build connections to the school and to other ...

Almost time

Anyone out and about last Wednesday probably noted a lot of activity around area schools as registration for Kershaw County schools got underway. It's an exciting time for students, both first timers and "old hands" as they get to meet teachers and principals and otherwise get the "lay of the land." And when school starts next Monday, August 15, hopefully everyone will have their classes, schedules, lunchtimes -- everything that goes with the new school year --largely squared away,

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 ...
