Editorial: Back to school

Monday, hundreds of teachers returned to their classrooms or entered them for the first time as they prepared for the new school year here in Kershaw County. Next Monday, thousands of students will return to classes, some for the first time, too, others moving up to their next grade.

Editorial: The storm

As our front page story and picture attest, Thursday night's thunderstorm was a strong one, managing -- among other things -- to knock out a major electric power distribution line to the Camden area. The only major reported incident was a barn fire resulting in a total loss.

Editorial: We Are Camden

(As today's editorial, we present the following blog post by Callie Neal, a former Camden High School [CHS] student, daughter of CHS Athletic Director Jimmy Neal and Camden Middle School Band Director Nancy Neal. Ms. Neal, now an educator herself at Summerville High School, sent us a copy of her post for publication. It expresses our feelings as well regarding the tragic death of CHS student Drew David.)

Editorial: Lizard Man

Our neighbors to the east (Lee County) are having fun again with the alleged reappearance of the Lizard Man of Scape Ore Swamp. The most recent accounts include a picture sent to the media this week by a woman only known as "Sarah;" and a video taken by an unknown hunter who said he recorded the Lizard Man back in May, but waited until Sarah released her photo to share it with the world.

• We, as we suspect many others do, look forward to the day when the new version of the Armory restaurant opens in downtown Camden. Chef and co-owner Ed Caraminas says he'll take some of the old business' menu, remake them with his own recipes and add favorites from his former Boston and Florida restaurants. The mention of Maryland blue crab caught several C-I staffers' attention. Going back to its days as The Paddock, the Armory has been a place to go and a culinary attraction for visitors to our city. It will be nice to welcome it back into ...

Editorial: The Karesh wing

While it may seem troubling on the surface to have KershawHealth's letter of intent with Capella Healthcare extended to Aug. 31, the reason for the delay actually provides good news to those who rely on an important component of the hospital: the Karesh Long Term Care Center.

Editorial: Traffic light needed

Most, although not necessarily all, people in Bethune appear to want an actual traffic light at the intersection of U.S. 1 and S.C. 341 rather than the blinking red and yellow lights there now or a proposed four-way stop. We happen to fall into the traffic light column on this issue. First, if set up correctly, with sensors to alert the system someone on U.S. 341 wants to cross the intersection, the light can be set to green most of the time for U.S. 1 traffic. This will allow truckers and others to, slowly of course ...

• Website statistics don't usually generate a lot of interest these days if for no other reason than the internet is such a common part of our daily lives. But when the Kershaw County School District (KCSD) reported it generated more than 600,000 hits in one school year on its main site -- and well more than a million through all its individual school sites -- we took notice. The statistics, along with those for the district's other Web-based resources, just go to prove how things have changed when it comes to parent-teacher/school interaction. Parents are more likely today ...
