Wind, rain and blues

It doesn't seem that long ago since the massive juggernaut called Hugo swept through South Carolina – including Camden and Kershaw County – leaving a path of destruction still marveled at nearly thirty years later. As of press time, it appears that Hurricane Matthew was going to have less of an impact on South Carolina and Kershaw County than it potentially could have.

Monsters here

On today's front page readers will see a variety of items. One is a lighthearted feature by Katrina Moses about the Pokémon Go game, which is sweeping the nation in popularity. The word Pokémon seems to be a mash-up in Japanese and English, but it basically means "pocket monster." The object of the game, apparently, is to hunt and capture these pocket monsters, which apparently can be anywhere. In fact, in this interesting and creative melding of the virtual and real worlds, we are seeing players in all kinds of different places – cemeteries, libraries, monuments, public buildings ...

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.

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 ...
