Kudos to area students

When it comes to achievements and accomplishments in this community, we want to be the first to start the cheering – and certainly there could be no group of people we should be more proud of than our children.

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 ...

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: 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.
