The city of Camden is the best!

Most of us are ready, willing and able to take politicians and other leaders to task when things are less than our expectations would have them be. Unfortunately, all too often the criticism is warranted. Unfairly, we are less willing to be complimentary when plaudits are due.
The Mt. Pisgah and Bethune areas once again find ourselves in the same situation we were in less than two years ago. I appeal to everyone in the county to please stand behind our small communities and help our children to be able to stay in their communities to attend school.

In Paul's letter to the Ephesians, he says, "Awake thou that sleepest and arise from the dead and Christ shall give thee light." I am exhorting you good citizens of Bethune to awake from sleep and rise to a high calling facing us in our town and community.
My husband and I would like to say "thank you" to the Camden Fire Department for your quick response to our 911 call Thursday, 1/28/16 when home caught fire.

I would like to express my thanks to the merchants of Bethune who so very graciously assisted with two projects sponsored by the Woman's Club of Bethune. They also supported a gift-wrapping project by the Sandy Grove United Methodist Church Youth Group.
Last week, an announcement was made about a program in partnership with Central Carolina Technical College which will provide a two-year scholarship to any graduate of a Kershaw County high school who meets some very reasonable requirements.
The lights are dimmed, the curtains closed, the actors/actresses are in place, the stage is set and then the curtains open and the script begins to play. The well-rehearsed scene begins to unfold for the benefit of the ones in the audience.
