Boogertown not to blame
Placeholder Image
I was dismayed to see an unfair and inaccurate characterization of our old historic neighborhood of Boogertown on the front page of the Friday, June 1st issue of the C-I. The caption that appeared under the "Brick by Brick: The Walls Tumbled Down" photo, which depicted the demolition of the band room at the old Camden Middle School (and old Camden High School), falsely portrayed our neighborhood's efforts to propose an alternative to the proposal to extend Jordan Street to Laurens as having been responsible for the property being "vacant for years and subject to vandalism." The implication was that the residents of Boogertown cluelessly opposed developing the property, thereby fouling our own nest by leaving a crumbling eyesore in our midst, ripe for vandals. This is untrue.
